Honey...I'm home!


After a lovely break away from the 'norm' we're back home again. DH is back at work and I am back to my course. The kids have a week left yet so good thing mine is extramural! Our trip was wonderful, only part of me wanted to come home again! Autumn is a great time of year to travel, towns such as Cambridge have a lot of trees (and I hear an up coming Autumn festival...sounds like heaven to me!) and are so pretty to go through right now. Otorohonga is always entertaining too...this corrugated iron kiwi is just one of mean NZ icons proudly flaunted through-out the main town area. The main attraction for me though will always be my mountain.... Mt Taranaki...beautiful, magestic and so inspiring! It just so happens that Moody Monday's mood this week is "Inspiration" so I think I will have just the image to post for that! Oh...and one last thing! I came home to an email letting me know that I sold my collage..(number 13, Takahe for anyone interested) so naturally I was very pleased to see that!

Welcome home and happy autumn. What kind of winter do you have down there? I bet I'd like autumn a lot better if it wasn't followed by 6 months of winter with annual, average accumulations of over 140" of the white stuff. It's always been a goal of mine to live here for spring and summer, then to come south to Argentina or New Zealand for spring and summer again!

Tell me you don't get real winters, do you? With snow and ice? A kiwi couldn't survive that. Don't you have one long fall and then springtime again?
