I am all packed and I leave tomorrow morning for Melbourne to stay the night at Brenton and Shirley's place with Mum and Dad. On Tuesday morning we will meet Debra at the airport and fly out for Toronto at 11am, arriving at 11pm the same day.

No, Toronto is not 12 flying hours from Melbourne, it is about 16, plus the waiting at airports it will be a long day.

July is the coldest month of Australia's winter. And in the past I have described certain days as 'freezing!' But after spending a winter in Canada the term freezing has taken on a new dimension: freezing means ice and snow. And although we don't have snow and ice in Adelaide, Sunday was yucky walking to my car after church when it was 12 degrees, and the wind blasting the spitting rain in my face, I just couldn't bring myself to say it was freezing.

I'm still here

It has been a while since I have blogged. I haven't been feeling the best since starting back in class. Settling back into the routine is difficult. Things have looking up since our mid trimester two week break started. I have finished one assignment, have a good start on another and will finish a third later this week.

I have spent most days working, but I am going to the Barossa Valley on Wednesday wine tasting. Yummo! I have tried wines from around Australia, and a few overseas, but I think the Barossa has the best reds, so I'm looking forward to the trip.

In just over two weeks I will going to my second favourite country in the solar system: Canada. My brother Brenton will be marrying Shirley in Vancouver. I have the privilege of preaching at their wedding as well as showing Mum, Dad and my sister Debra around Grey/Bruce county to see where I did vicarage. I'm excited to see my friends again. Who knows when I will see again?

See you Canucks in a few weeks eh!
