I’ve now been back just over a week and have finally caught up on all the things that fall behind when one leaves their house and employ for 3 weeks. While I was swanning around in Australia I imagined that it was getting warmer here. Well, to be honest there were probably only mere seconds given to imagining anything in DC, but nevertheless I was surprised to come back to what was still basically winter – we even had snow on Sunday! Before I left DC I put all my heavy winter stuff in the laundry/dry cleaning and for the past week I’ve been pulling it back out. Finally yesterday we hit a temperature indicative of spring and this evening I noticed that my bulbs are peeping through the soil. Just.
A wonderful interlude to my week’s toiling was a coffee date on Saturday with Gingersister. What an interesting lady; so passionate about so many things and she’s crafty too! Basically all the things I’m not! I think she could enthuse me though, and perhaps teach me how to craft something, so I’m looking forward to our next get-together.
I took about 2,000 photos in Australia, but have no fear I’m not about to share – probably 1,900 of them are of the grandson. And besides, I still have a whole lot of Chile to post!
