100_4212I didn’t dare believe it until it happened, but we got over a centimetre of rain today. Squally thunderstorms rolled in at lunchtime, curtailing my gardening and cutting power, but I don’t mind. A centimetre of rain will do lovely things for the garden and paddocks.

Dinner switched from the planned ricotta and pea tart to risi e bisi, which could be made on the gas stove without electricity.

This blog was written the old-fashioned way—on paper with one of my favourite pencils (and uploaded when the power came back on).

Now there’s nothing left to do by sit down with a glass of wine and a book to read by the light of the solar powered Christmas tree lights.
