This morning I heard the sound of a parrot twittering outside, but it didn’t sound like the rainbows our most common loriikeets. I sneaked out onto the balcony and discovered a pair of Pale Headed Rosellas.
This is an articulated dump truck used in mining and road construction. My husband is currently operating an excavator on a major road upgrade on the Cardwell range, about 120km from home.
The truck driver drove through a metre deep hole filled with mud on one side and over rock on the other side which unbalanced the tray and tipped it over.
It is designed with the safety feature that if the tray rolls the cabin doesn’t.
As they are designed with this safety feature, it is a relatively simple procedure for the excavator driver to hook the excavator bucket over the side of the tray and pull it back onto its wheels.
On the weekend we went to Mystic Sands, it was a glorious day and you would hardly think we were heading towards mid winter and the shortest day of the year.

After finishing my lessons for the creative embroidery class on Joggles, I took a little time out to create a series of pages on demystifying Art Journaling.
