Jan 14, 2014 - Last day in Perth for a while

There has been a lot to do today with packing the cases and David had a lot to do on the computer getting ready for overseas. David is going to India on overseas mission. And I am going to visit my parents in Canada, but first we'll fly to Melbourne and visit family, then fly out from there. Tonight I cooked up the remainder of our food and we shared that for dinner with Michael and Margie. Margie is making ginger beer. It's quite a process. We had choc chip cheesecake and caramel and hazelnut Icecream for dessert.

Jan 13, 2014 - Easy day

Today was an easy day doing the washing and getting the house in order. At the end of the day we went out for dinner with Michael and Margie to a Thai restaurant. The food was vey nice but a bit too hot. We finished off with Baskin and Robbins sundaes afterwards. We had a lovely time chatting with Michael and Margie. They are very easy to get along with. They are very interested in the sustainability mission in India.

Jan 11, 2014 - 44oC

Today is forecast to be 44oC and it reached that temperature. It was already 35oC at 9 am. We arrived at Some friends place by mid morning. We had met them briefly years ago overseas. Our host made a fruit platter with some bread in different flavours. One spinach and cheese and another a sweet bread. It was so hot when we arrived we could hardly wait to get indoors. What was meant to be just a morning tea turned into lunch and six hours later we said goodbye. We had a chance to talk a lot and David was very encouraging to them. We left...

Jan 9, 2014 - Heading into Perth

Today we rode into Fremantle along the bike path early at 7 am. We found the visitor centre but it was too early so we had a ride down the High Street to the old fort. By that time my behind was hurting so after looking around the port area we headed back up high street and had a coffee at The Grumpy Sailor. The Grumpy Sailor sells coffee and bites to eat and has books for sale and a coffee and reading room. It's a very interesting shop. I couldn't resist buying The Pie Book. It's such a good book if you love pies. It tells you how to make...

Dec 15, 2013 - Going to the cold match and a lot of snow

Today it was really Cold but we had tickets to an American football game so we had to go. When we got there we had some time to spare so we went and got some food for the game, when we got back to our seats the match was about to start and we watched all the players come out onto the ground. Once the match started nothing much happened but soon the home team that we were barracking for (the Browns) got the ball and got a field goal ( that is where you kick the ball into the goals when you haven't gotten a touchdown beforehand) and were...

Dec 15, 2013 - Going to the cold match and the snow cont.

Yesterday night and yesterday it snowed a lot! So much that we had enough snow to make a large snowman with my cousin David and my sister Mary. We had a lot of fun and got really cold and had to have a shower and a bath to warm us up. In the end this is what the completed snowman looked like. Bye for now, Charlie and co.

Dec 10, 2013 - A day at Burr and Jan's place

Today we drove out to Jefferson to see our grandpa Burr and grandma Jan. it was a long drive but everyone was happy when we finally arrived. They live in a country town and have a house on an acreage with their own pond which has completely frozen now because of the freezing cold weather, we did have to stay off of the ice because the ice was too thin. Grandpa Burr has a massive garage where he fixes up all the old cars that his friend 'the mayor' buys. Right now he is fixing up a 1932 Buick which looks a little like an old drag racing car....

Dec 9, 2013 - YMCA And The Nutcracker

On Saturday my sister Mary, my mum and my grandma went to the Moscow ballet's nutcracker in town. So my brother, my dad and I went out to the YMCA. The YMCA is a sports venue that has a pool and has a racquetball courts and a set of gyms. We went to the racquetball courts and played racquetball, racquetball is when you have as many players as you want and a bouncy ball is hit against the walls with tennis racquets and the ball bounces over your head so it is a hard game. We were going to play basketball but all of the courts were taken so...

Dec 4, 2013 - Squires castle

Today we had a nice mild day so we decided to go somewhere. We ended in a place called squire's castle. Squire's castle was built in the late 1800's and the man it is named after moved in to the castle in 1909. There was two storeys but there was no staircase so we could only look at the second storey and wonder what it would've been like up there.There was a large hiking track, the track went through a large woods. There was lots and lots of mud but none of us minded, we also saw a lot of squirrels and a few chipmunks. When we got back we...

Dec 2, 2013 - Leaf attack!

On Monday we decided to rake the leaves from the backyard, my sister Mary and my brother Louis got out the old wagon and started putting leaves in it and piling them on a fence In a massive pile. It took over an hour and a half so we got real cold and we all had red noses, we saw a lot of squirrels while we were raking the leaves and a lot of these leaves were red so we collected them all and placed them somewhere where we could get them later on. Once we had the leaves all raked up into one big pile we hid in it (see attached photo) Bye...
