Everything happens for a reason

While it has been terribly frustrating to spend the last week or so waiting on the visa letter to come in the mail 'any day' I have to think, when I see the Australian news in the morning, that everything happens for a reason. They've had record breaking heat for the past 11 days, in the high 30s. For those of you who think in Fahrenheit, this is like 110 degrees or so. There are bush fires in the hills, and as we have no air conditioning in the house, I am so glad we're not there for it. (The guy who build our house must have been a total cheapskate!) When it gets this hot, where do you put your possessions that can't stand the heat...do I shift my make-up and Tylenol to the fridge?

Even with the a/c, a lot of medicines go in the fridge.

Tip: take a wet tea towel and put it in the freezer for 15 mins. Then drap it on the top of your head. It really works to cool you off.

...and a dip in the pool...

I like the tv commercial here where this dude sticks ice cubes to his chest and goes sliding on the living room floor.

Was slightly kidding about the fridge as I thought you couldn't keep things below a certain temp.

I am actually in the midst of all the heat!!! Day 16 with temperatures over 30...and yeah, I had to put my eyeliner in the fridge because it almost melted away. It still beats a Chicago winter, though!
