90 in the shade

and it's not even lunchtime yet :)

Ahhhhhhhhh, I do believe that spring might actually be here! Time to put the winter parka away, pack up the bunny boots, and muzzle the mittens.

Yes, spring is here!

Hmmmm, the laundry is only taking 30 mins to dry on the line, nice. The grape vines are sprouting (NICE!!!!), the palm trees are happy, and the pool is clean!

Ahhhhh, spring... 7 months of warm weather!

Now I'll do what every good aussie bloke does in this weather: reach for a tinny! Tinny means beer, BTW.

But oh no! Where'd the beer go?
where'd it go

Now, if'n y'all will 'scuse me, a pool calls to be dived into...

Update: It's now become very cold... it's down to 89.2 F in the shade and only 111.6 in the direct sun. I'm not sure how I'll survive but I think it may be time to break out the showshoes, crampons, and ice axe. Maybe even the ice auger to get through the thick ice on the pool... Sigh...

..and the grapes in California whose leaves have all turned bright red and are falling, welcome shorter days and frost in the forecast.

The down under life sounds very nice right now. Enjoy some sun 4 me..
