To planted garlic cloves sprouted and already 10cm above the soil.
To restocking a fridge and hot cups of tea - made in a pot from loose leaf.
To snuggling under a warm doona in a chilled room.
To missed delivery notices under the front door.
To a briefly sunny sky and enough breeze to dry a load of washing or three,
To a coming lunch date with the family and the sharing of the travel spoils.
New York, you were grand, but boy it's nice to come home.
