Summertime in the Southern Hemisphere

source: Kirsten

While there’s much talk of hot cocoa, snow and winter whites in the northern hemisphere (even, surprisingly, in places like Georgia and Alabama this winter!), I wanted to put together another seasonal list for those of you in the southern hemisphere who are in the throes of summer!

Hopefully you can find some inspiration for a new meal, a new family activity or a new way to relax and enjoy the laid back summer:

  1. It’s apparently summer in Australia but it’s pouring with rain, cold and half the country is flooding 🙁

  2. thank you so much – there have been so many posts on so many blogs that i have to fly past as not related to our season (and we don’t get snow in Brisbane ever so cannot even file away all the great cold weather activities). am about to spend too long reading lots of links – great stuff!

  3. Thanks for the links! With all the flooding going on in Brisbane/QLD at the moment, we are not straying too far from home, and a few articles to read/ponder will help pass the time while we wait for the waters to peak..

  4. Oh would you look at all this summer – thank-you !!!! You are such a star!!!

  5. Saying a prayer for all the folks in Australia and flooding areas!
