It’s the first day of spring tomorrow and I feel a sense of urgency for today to end. I have filled my month of September with wonderful things to do before I am housebound to recover from the scheduled surgery. I feel I want to do it all … just in case.
One of the things I plan to do in September is visit the Murchison Region. I had gone there on a work trip last year and promised myself I would return in spring. The Midwest Outback is awesome country. Wide open spaces, ranges, old gold mining country. I’m hoping to see lots of wildflowers at this time of year. The trip will be basic. We have to take our own food, and accommodation will be even more basic. But there will be a canopy of stars at night that I have never seen before, so I’m up for it!
I know for sure there will not be any beautiful beaches.
No cosy four poster bed in a rammed earth cottage to keep warm on chilly nights.
No avocado on toast and fresh orange juice for brekky.No chocolates and wine at the end of the day unless we take some of our own (reminder to self).
As we will be in the Nowhere, there will be a dress code though, so I’m taking my best sunhat with me, veiled of course, to keep the flies off my face.And there may be a road train or two for company.
I’m ready for September! I feel like it’s the home run I need before October rolls in like a storm cloud. Right now all I can think of is the open spaces, red dust and blue sky and there will be a generous serve of that waiting for us.
Until next time
