This weekend I’m daydreaming about lying on a beach with the sun warming my skin. ‘Warming’ being the important word in that sentence. In south-eastern Australia we’re being blasted with icy polar weather from Antarctica. It’s snowing in the mountains above 1000 metres (3280 ft). Where I live in Canberra on the Southern Tablelands, our elevation is 577 metres (1893 ft). I’m writing this post at 1pm on Sunday, and I’ve included a screenshot below from my weather app. (7.8C is 46F and -2.1C is 28F)
Fortunately we have ducted heating that keeps our home warm. I’m wearing layers of clothing, a knitted scarf around my neck, and my cosy slippers on my feet.
It’s definitely indoor reading weather here. I like to curl up on the sofa with a warm throw, a print book or my Kindle, and a hot drink. Hot black tea or hot coffee or a hot chocolate is my preference. Sparkling water with a twist of lime is my preferred summer beverage. What’s your beverage of choice this weekend to accompany your reading? Have you had an opportunity to read at the beach?
