February's focus : Cabin Fever
Week Six : Quiet Calm
In stark contrast to February's theme I am aching for some home time. The super-hot dry weather has made for ideal fire conditions and we have spent the past few days on edge and leaving the house to hang around in safer areas.
Because of the frustration of trying to keep everyone safe, fed and entertained I really thought I wouldn't find a subject suitable for this week's prompt.
But while we were hanging around elsewhere "just in case" today there were two opportunities that spoke of "quiet calm" to me.
The first was my daughter capturing a dandelion fairy to share with me while I was sitting in the shade with a well deserved coffee watching them play:
The second is a moment I shared alone with a kangaroo (I escaped for my family for a few minites). Both of us sitting watching the other as if thinking "I know I should be scared and move away, but it's too blinking hot for all that fussing."
