I sipped my beer and though how good life was

Last night I as I turned the chops and sausages on the BBQ and retreated from the afternoon heat under the shade of the lemon gum I though just how good it all is at the moment. Annalise and Adrian are growing and learning and changing day by day and both seem to be doing really well. Work, well its work, nothing worth moaning about. The Cockatoos were screeching out raucous good evenings and the James Squires was doing a decent job defending me from the afternoon heat. Even the ash raining from the sky seamed to be missing the cloths on the line.
I think next time I'll turn the BBQ around the other way so the bung wheel and slope of the paving cancel each other out instead of exaduratign each other and spilling the oil of the hot plate.

good luck with the ash rain....

and as i sit here and bundle in my down jacket and put my high-tech fleece hat on to brave the elements and walk to school...I'll think of you and your sausages and I swear I won't be jealous.

Sounds pretty idyllic! I think the whole country had a scorcher yesterday. We battled through with the help of the A/C and iced tea...

there are things i miss about Australia... like being able to plan a bbq and not worry that there is a 99.99999% chance it will rain.
The bushfires are not one of them!
