weather or not
We finally hit deep summer a few days ago and although the next few days will be cloudy/rainy (thunderstorms forecast for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday!!) the burst of heat was enough reason for me to get my ice crusher out. Fill half a tall glass with crushed ice, four squirts of lemon juice, two of lime juice, and enough soda water to make it all float to the top.

I'm glad we're getting more rain though, and the storms will break any heat that's left by then. In Adelaide (my hometown) Summer not only brings the scorching weather, but it keeps it there for three weeks at a time. That's one nice thing about Canberra; the heat never lasts too long. Of course we pay for that when it's dark at 5pm in the winter, but whatever...that's months away.
