It is rainy and foggy here. I have spent all week outside washing huge walls of windows and metal blinds because soon it will be too cold to be out there. Today I am craving sunshine and blue skies that go on forever. Kookaburras laughing. Koalas sleeping and occasionally waking up to grab a few gum leaves. A swim in our pool. Washing hanging outside on the clothesline and smelling like the sun. Birds that wake you up at sunrise. The weather is making me a little homesick again. But on Saturday we are off on a week-long holiday to Lauterbrunnen (where I hear there may be snow). And I am really looking forward to some time in the alps!! In the meantime I look out the window at this gorgeous maple whose leaves have turned the most beautiful colours…. and pretend I can’t see the endless rain.
