This is crazy weather at the moment. We've had over a week of mid 30s temps, and another week to come. There was a short storm last Wednesday evening, but other than that not a cloud, let alone any rain. We hardly ever get it this hot without a break, and never in March! It's supposed to be autumn for heaven's sake - hot during the day, sure, but with just that hint that it won't last forever. Well, there is no hint, and we are absolutely convinced it will last forever. When I left work at 6pm today it was still 34 degrees, and everything was burnt to a baked-on crisp.
So our weekend was pretty quiet. I went for a run on Saturday morning in a feeble attempt to regain the fitness I lost over Christmas, and it was BOILING. Not a breath of wind, which made the lake very pretty, but no relief from the sun. I'm not sure if the photo shows, but the little sailboats are absolutely sitting there, not moving at all. The rowers were doing fine because the lake was like glass.
On Sunday morning we met up with friends to go for a walk - through the pines in an attempt to get some shade - which mostly worked. We finished up by 11 am and it was just starting to get really unpleasant! And on both afternoons we sat around floppily, although my husband and I offloaded the boys on Saturday night to a friend and went out for dinner. We meant to go to a movie, but dinner ended up taking too long, and we didn't really care, so we stayed for dessert and another beer, and it was lovely. Great food too, if anyone would like a Canberra restaurant recommendation.
