Flags have been very hard to find in the areas I ride. Aussies don’t tend to fly flags in their yards much and I haven’t been by businesses in business hours to get any business-related flags. The only Aussie flag I have found sits outside a house that has an old caravan and many old whitegoods in the front yard. My experience has been that such homes do not have occupants that are high on the “open/agreeableness” personality scale and would not be too keen on me taking any photos.
The local school does fly the federal flag and the aboriginal flag… but I am never riding by there in school hours, and I think it is creepy to take photos of a school when kiddos are there anyway.
And I have just not seen any others… so the feature photo is something that rhymes with ‘flag’: an old, dead paddock tree which is often called a ‘snag’. I do see lots of these and lots of this scenery on my rides around my new place (which I am enjoying 300x more than where I used to live).
I have been getting out for some short rides and did complete my first spring overnight ride last weekend. You can read about it here. The post before it describes a couple of day rides I did in September.
I’m still battling to get my energy back. I’ve completed my first unit in my online course. I go see the ME/CFS specialist next Thursday and I’m putting together a list of queries for my 1 hour appt. The job I want was finally advertised Friday. So I’m working on the cover letter and selection criteria now. Applications are due 28 October. Cross your fingers for me… if I can get that, it will be the last piece of the puzzle I can control in pointing my life where I want it to go.
So I’ve been busy… and feeling a bit like the photo below which I saw posted in one of my support groups. I laughed very hard at this one as this is me on many days!
