The day after Christmas, that is.
According to Wikipedia:
The exact etymology of the term “boxing” is unclear and there are several competing theories, none definitive.
…but it seems to mainly be related to making up alms boxes for the poor which were given out on the day after Christmas.
Here it’s a public holiday, no matter what your charity frame of mind.
Another hot day today with temperatures up around 37°C ( 98.6°F) and the wind blowing a gale once again. I really don’t mind a breeze, ‘specially when the weather’s hot, but this wind we get here is ridiculous. And today’s has been an easterly as well, so apart from air movement it’s done nothing to make the day more pleasant. We were woken several times through the night by the sound of the wind and of the fence creaking alarmingly. Luckily fence is still there, and wind has now dropped off slightly.
After me talking to my mum about the computer and TV that Paul, my brother, bought her today, Stephen taking to his dad and skyping his mum (Christmas day in the States) we spent much of the day outside. Once again we filled the pool for Anzac. Kaz is welcome to use it too, but she won’t put more than her paws in – very gingerly.
New video of Anzac:
And we had a small veggie harvest today; a few tomatoes and a capsicum.
And to finish off a small video of yesterday’s blue-tongued lizard
and another small one of the dogs in the water:
