Lemon into Lemonade
Sounds like you made the most of what could have been a 'not so great' time. Thanks to the bus breaking down and the farmer and his family, you enjoyed a different experience than you had planned. The swag sounds neat-- as long as there aren't any mosquitoes!!! I think the wave rock looks sooooo cool! How could it be created so perfectly? Isn't nature awesome?

It is hard to believe that your time is coming to an end. I am use everyone will miss you in Southern Cross, the place will never be the same. Good Canadian hospitality. Will the weather here has not been so bad the last couple of weeks, have even hit zero and above. Have not had any fresh snow since in November, so use it will arrive and snow for days!!!!!!!!!!!!! Couple of days after your last update I thought about taking a picture of the backyard with all the snow and forwarding on but idea arrived to late as a Chinook arrived and melting started. Do not get me wrong there is still snow on the lawns. and our street is cover, but the main streets are now good (no help from the city snow remowal). Weatherman is calling for snow tonight so maybe tomorrow when I get home from work is enought snow has fallen will get a picture off to you, so those Aussie can cool off. Sarah was mentioning hot there, this coming weekend have a kids Christmas party in the park at Kambaldia, I know shorts, hats, sunscreen, and bathing suits. Apparently Isobel is very excited, her first Christmas to remember, and she is mesmerized by the tree and lights.. Of course have a advent chocolate calendar for each has helped, both girls know after supper can open another section and get a chocolate. We will be heading to your Mom and Dads for Christmas dinner.. Be a quiet Christmas here, just Matthew and myself, and Matthew is back to working nights so opening gifts will likely happen late afternoon. Matthew has volunteered to work Dec 26, not sure of the shift yet so that will determine how late we stay after Christmas dinner. You must be so excited that Mom and Dad will be arriving soon. Hard to believe they will be heading back to Canada in a couple of days. So what are your plans after Mom and Dad leave, will you have to come home at the same time? or are you able to do a bit more touring around. Take care, have a wonderful Christmas. Sure will not be "quiet" with the girls..I keep on telling them, they have to come to Grandma's house and build a snowman. Lorna

Happy Thanksgiving Across the world!
Hi Laurene, I have enjoyed the photos and your writing about Southern Cross. It looks like isolation for sure, but a great opportunity to get to know the local people and save your money! Turkey will be in the oven in a bit and its just L and I and I today. Love, Gail and Albee
