What we saw out our lounge window today

I went to the doctor this morning to ask about my cold and cough. It seems it’s a virus and rest is the best cure. She looked surprised to learn I don’t take any medications which always make me feel a bit smug and my blood pressure was perfect. On the way in to Donnybrook, I drove past a snake on the road. So that means the weather is really warming up. After lunch, we happened to see movement out the lounge window and spotted a monitor lizard (sand monitor, race-horse goanna, bungarra) digging a hole in the garden bed. It’s gone away now but I’m wondering if it will be back later to perhaps lay eggs in the hole. I’ll keep you posted. I took a video of him. I’m sorry it’s wobbly towards the end. I was trying to work out how to turn off the video option.

He is really digging furiously, he/she must have an agenda to be working so hard. Are these lizards harmful? We do not have anything like that here in our area. You are very lucky to enjoy such good health, I hope that you can take some time to rest and recover from the bug that you have. Have you ever tried oil of oregano?

He dug out the hole for a while then shifted the dirt he'd removed. I'll keep an eye on the hole and see if it gets filled in again. Wouldn't it be exciting if 'she' laid eggs in it? I haven't tried oil of oregano. Fiacre recommends a clove of garlic each day. How do you take the oil of oregano?
