It is very hot today by my standard....37 degrees celsius, but if you are near the ocean there is a lovely breeze that cools it down a few degrees. I'm definitely not complaining. Went for dinner last night to Jill's brothers house (Jill and Ian are at my house in T. Bay) along with a few other friends of theirs and had a great time. Everyone has been very hospitable and most are planning future get togethers. This is the "city of festivals" and there are many. March madness is coming up, called that because so much is going on at the same time. There is a music festival (similar to the Winnipeg folk festival) with about 60 groups from around the world (perhaps 1/2 from Oz) and a huge fringe festival with 100's of acts, which covers a few weeks. On top of that there are many other things happening.
Yesterday the end of the school day, the teacher's gathered in the teacher's lounge for thier regular Friday food and drink! We all had either wine or beer (I actually had champagne!) from a fridge in the staff room.....it's the regular Friday routine at most schools I hear!
Just got back from Adelaide Central Market (largest food market in Southern Hemisphere) where I bought the most wonderful peaches, cherries, grapes, all locally grown, along with a Kangaroo steak and a crocodile burger (and some boring chicken legs). Am heading off for a swim and BBQ at Jill's other siblings house this arvo (afternoon to you folk)- Ann, Jeff and children.
Hmmm....now which wine should I bring......
