.. real hot! Hottest things is my shorts, I could cook things in them .. .. if I'd been wearing shorts that is, heh

It got hot today. 39C at one point according to my weather pixie, with 8% humidity. And then around 5:30pm a change blew through and dropped nearly 20 degrees in an hour :)

.. it's 27C at 5:30am ...

Came 5th in cia poker tonight. Eight starting players but two buy-ins, so essentially I made the top half .. heh.. mucked myself up early though, so didn't have much chance of making it to the top three. Oh well :) Still fun.

Amazing

It snowed in Canberra yesterday. It snowed in Armidale today. Flipping heck the weather is nuts :) And I want snow dammit!! heheh

Liking tonight's episode of the Amazing Race. Plenty of been-theres in DC. This series is proving to be a lot of fun. I already have a favourite family I want to win heh. Very American road-trippy, just the way I like it :) I wonder how much international travel they'll end up doing....

Routine

As any FlyBaby will tell you, routines are vital.

So when you get home late and Stu gets online early, then when you get up at 9:15 and the fish haven't been fed, emails haven't been downloaded, photos haven't been downloaded, and you haven't had your drink, you get somewhat grumpy with yourself.

All I did manage to achieve tonight was finishing Google-earthing my flight yesterday. 200-odd points marked off :)

Party Man

For some reason I have Prince's "Party Man" stuck in my head... no idea why ..... :)

Other than that, had a slow day at home, followed by fizzling at Alan and Marylon's ... very nice.. :)

Goldilocks Season

| | Comments (1)

Every year about this time, railway verges are dotted with dozens of golden flowers reaching for the sun. These annuals have always been a favourite of mine. We even had a crop of them every year in our backyard until my mother went on a weeding spree before they flowered, and that was the end of them.

I was very sad.

I could never say coreopsis when I was little - they were, and still are, Goldilocks's. I think I like my name better.

coreopsis aka goldilocks

Heard the year's first cicadas tonight too.

Ah summer!
