Kath and I made it back to Memphis last week, but everything since then has been pretty much a blur. I had to go back to work again the next day, and this past weekend was all about getting caught up on sleep and recovering from the trip. We still aren’t 100% yet, but we are getting back on track.
It has been harder than I expected to come out of the lushness of New Zealand and warmth of Sydney (both temperature and the hospitality of the La Perouse community) and return to Memphis, which not the most attractive or comfortable place in January. I had forgotten how yellow everything gets, when the clouds hang in the sky through the short nine-hour day and all of the chlorophyll has vanished. I know that Spring is only a couple of months away, so we have that to look forward to. I guess I can always hibernate.
