Yep, can you believe it?? I am all packed and ready to go!!! Just have to throw the last minute ziplock bag in and I am ready!!! A whole 17 hours before we have to leave!!! Now what do I do?? Chris is working on his last mill report of the year and then we plan to take a nice walk on the beach, mow the yard, clean out the fridge and clean the house. Sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it? But if we are going to be gone for 3 weeks from the house it needs to be done.
Aaron and Thom made it to Sydney safe and sound and it is supposed to rain for 2 days but he just posted a picture of the Opera House so at least they are out and about and it just looked cloudy so maybe they won’t get all the rain that is predicted.
My suitcase if stuffed but it really isn’t a lot of “my” stuff!!! Chris asked me why I had so much stuff and I told him that you never know who you might want to give a little Australian gift to!!! The kangaroos are the hard things because they keep hopping out.
We had a great dinner last night at the Australian Hotel in the CBD in Townsville. It was one of our favorite places when we lived at The Quest and I picked Chris up after work and we walked over. I had a hankering (now there is a term I bet the Aussies don’t know!) for some coral trout and they always prepare it really well. I was thrilled to find the special of the night was grilled coral trout with prawns and a sweet chili sauce over it. Three of my favorite things!! It was delish!!! YUM!
But enough about my culinary pleasures———we will be back soon and hope to catch as many of you as we can!!!
