Lowdown Mondays

I usually love this time of the year when leaves are starting to fall and the snap of the autumn chill is felt in the air. Soft rugs come out of their hiding places, warm leggings and long boots start making appearances on the Terrace.

For some reason autumn this year feels very cold. I can’t believe it’s two weeks to the start of June and the winter season, but it must be winter because I’m scheduled to get my annual flu vacc tomorrow.

Has half a year already gone by? Yet so much has happened since then and I predict, much more to come.

An interstate Foundation Day long weekend might be in the cards. I’m hoping and wishing for somewhere brand new with gorgeous coffee experiences and foodie delights.

It’s time for my coffee fix before the daily grind begins. There’s a new coffee place inside Cloisters Terrace called Low Down which is very promising (Fiori beans), it’s not as delectable as Velvet coffees, but it’s pretty good. The charming, slightly scruffy down to earth baristas whom greet you by your name and dispense warm smiles while wishing you a good day at work help elevate the coffee experience tremendously (I have to admit, while the coffee’s excellent, Velvet’s service isn’t all that great). Business is buzzing.

Sigh, the start of Monday and another hard week ahead. Already my mind is floating with images of soothing jooks (congee) and chicken herbal soups. 5 days and counting….

    I demand Japan posts.

    We had a lovely warm day today, one of the first proper ones this year I think.
