Homeward bound

Three months and it is time to go home. The time really went fast, was fun and exciting, saw lots of new places, met lots of new people, reconnected with lots of earlier-made friends, enjoyed many different degrees of winter in Australia. Back to hot and muggy tomorrow – can’t wait!!!

I promise to report on Wrapt In Rocky, the fiber conference held in Rockhampton, once I am back on home soil. Lots to report and pics to show. A class act!

But, I need to deal with an unexpected change of flights and extra legs of the journey, so please excuse the silence for a bit as I stumble through airports and time zones

Interesting things I’ve learned from Aussies…

… in no particular order of importance:

1. If you are having some slice, you are eating a piece of cake or even a bar-type cookie that was baked in a rectangular pan. Cake is higher.

2. Fairy pee is a very light misting of rain. I’m guessing that heavy rain might be classified as ogre pee…

3. The lupin bean is very similar to the soy bean.

4. Vegemite and Marmite are not the same and each has its own disciples.

5. Emus are able to eat a large seed that has a very poisonous covering without being effected; the actual seed eventually shows up again (minus it’s covering) and is harmless.

And from observation: most toilets seem to have enough water sprayers around the bowl that the water goes straight down and doesn’t have a chance to swirl, but when it does swirl there is a definite counterclockwise motion.

The Dye gods…

… have been good to me! Lovely color, amazing results! My Australian series this year will definitely be a must see!
