Yes, it is really winter

My mind keeps boggling. The other times I have been south of the equator were Dec (Argentina) and Jan/Feb – Kenya. It was warm, it was fine. I didn’t mind that it wasn’t winter. In fact, I never even thought about the fact that it wasn’t winter except to enjoy the sunshine.

This is something else. Understand, it is simply not that cold. Canberra is cooler than the coast, but temps are 10ยบ or better. Not exactly Minnesota standards of winter but still there is this small voice in the back of my mind that keeps saying it is supposed to be warm in August.

The Maus and I have pretty much recovered from the time zone changes. We have been up the Telstra Tower, spent a bit of time in the War Memorial and saw a fabulous exhibit at the National Museum. Today we got out of town to a couple of historic inland towns (and made a yarn store stop of course).

Tomorrow we are letting Jenny get back to her deadlines and inflicting ourselves on my cousin (distant cousin who I don’t remember as having met. Her parents yes in St Louis back around 1972-73 and her sister Karen who visited us in DC around the time that Noah was small.). Brave woman for taking us on.

Then Friday it is off to Adelaide!

    We were giggling on the bus this morning. The bus uses a satellite
    date/time/location geo-something-or-other announcement system. It said
    it was 1/1/00 and the time was ~20 minutes slow. Way off. It also
    wasn’t kicking in the location or the “Stop Requested” lights, so the
    poor bus driver had to listen to ever single person who wanted off
    pull the bell for every single stop. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh, winter. That did not occur to me either.

    Good to hear from you. Stay well and rested!

    I had to laugh at you reminding yourself that it is August and should be warmer. Well, you are officially in the land where August = winter. I am in a land where August = summer and I am living with temps not significantly higher than 10 degrees!!!
