Winter Sky


This week's CASology cue word is winter.  I've not seen a wintry sunset for a while, because we've been under dark grey cloud for most of the winter, and we're starting to develop webbed feet.  Conversely, our kids (29 and 26 but they're still my kids), who both live in Melbourne, are in the middle of the country's worst heatwave for years.  Fortunately they're in the city, away from the worst danger.  I'm hoping the weather returns to normal when we visit in a few weeks.


The colour scheme at The Play Date Cafe is


Champagne...Sky Blue...Tangerine
