The Week: 4th – 10th April

Autumn Leaves Garden Canberra Australia 6th April 2016 Sonya Heaney Nature

I was hoping to get some good autumn pictures before we head overseas and have another summer, but there’re very few changing leaves because of the hot weather… We had our hottest April day for thirty years on Wednesday (exactly twice Melbourne’s temperature, for example!). I’m never going to break in my new boots.

There’re only days to go now, and I’m not at all ready. We’ll be gone for about two months, which means there’re two months of life to sort out in advance. We are also scrambling to get all our bookings done for our next trip to Europe in February before we go on the first one!

It just doesn’t end, does it.

Which leads me to this.

The Netherlands did something very, VERY pro-Putin and pro-Kremlin in their referendum this week, and I am VERY angry about it. Apparently thousands of Ukrainian lives lost to terrorism sure don’t matter, whereas dozens of French and Belgian lives sure do… The world has a very established hierarchy for how much value a life from each nation has.

Hey – remember Russia shooting down MH17, and how all those Dutch people died?

I read Sylvia Day’s new book this week (which was VERY long, for some reason), as well as finishing a really good historical fiction novel about slavery in the US South during the Civil War. Both to be reviewed soon.
