Winter Wednesday #7

This winter wednesday I am happy for...

Walls! Specifically, the wall of our future laundry, which is the first wall to go up in our extension. I even helped push it up there! And then stood there holding it halfway up all by myself (plus a prop or two) while FIL rushed around to get a ladder because he'd forgotten to move that black protective plastic hanging from the roof out of the way! Nervous much? Nerves of steel, I have!

SP and I went for a bit of a drive today, and as we passed up and over the hills I had time to reflect that I actually live in quite a nice city (Australians, don't laugh! Adelaide IS nice). Surely there are not that many places in the world where we have weather as beautiful as this in the middle of Winter? OK, sure, last monday it hailed so much it banked up like snow, but in a couple of hours it had all melted, and now, a week later, the sun was out and it was hardly even muddy in our building-site-backyard. So, Adelaide, another thing to be grateful for.

We in Adelaide are lucky. We can grow plants all year long ;).No rest for Adelaide gardeners. Always something to do in the garden.

As a Sydney-sider, I envy your Mediterranean climate -- we're more humid, of course.
