Come on Aussie!

I don't know if it gets more Australian than listening to them call the 1500m Mens Freestyle on the radio whilst working at a sausage sizzle outide Bunnings on a spring Sunday morning. That's how I spent my morning. I think I prepped about 400 buns for sausages and let me tell you, there were no bun shortages on my watch. I had actually quite a good time in the end even if getting up at 7am in 3 degree weather and being almost the only car on the road at 7.20 really really hurt. A lot. Like most things, I grumbled most bout the getting out of wherever I was warm and cocooned but really was probably glad I did it in the end.

And that was the last of my sea rescue commitments. And now that it's done and really was almost fun, and at least soul satisfying, I'm kinda wondering if resigning was the right thing to do. I wonder why I can't let myself off the hook and just kick back and feel okay about doing nothing - reading a book for fun or watching a movie and patchworking away a whole Sunday arvo.

On the other hand, I do have many other commitments that will happily step into the time gap.

I am sitting and drinking deliciously freshly ground coffee - from Starbucks which kathrynlinge brought me back yesterday - Komono Dragon! Can't get more exotic than that! I've been flicking through cookbooks but nothing is really taking my fancy. I think I will bake some muffins though later this afternoon but it could be eggs on toast for me for dinner tonight.
