At our house in the lovely Otaki Beach New Zealand. Am really enjoying being in my home country. Mid summer the pohutukawa flowers were in full bloom, all different shades of red pity I'm a dinosaur can't send photos to here. The festive season was amazing I can't believe I survived. We had most of the grandchildren and it was a joy to see their faces when the reunited here. Well another year of getting my body right.

If - By Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too
If you can wait & not be tired by waiting
Or being lied about
Don't deal in lies
Or being hated, don't give way to hating
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise

If you can dream and not make dreams your master
If you can think and not make thoughts your aim
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken
And stoop to build them up with worn out tools

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch & toss
And lose & start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss
If you can force your heart and nerve & sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the will which says to them "Hold on"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue
or walk with kings nor lose the common touch
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you
If all men count with you, but none too much
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With 60 seconds worth of distance run
Yours is the earth & everything that's in it
And which is all, you'll be a man my son

    Kia Ora for dropping by my blog, I know what you mean about others' tastes. I am at the stage in my life where the others are quite capable of cooking to their own tastes, so whoever is making the meal gets the say! That said DH is happily following my lead and happily losing weight too, so we are in a sweet spot at the moment.
    I'm a reiki gal, too, BTW.
    Stay warm therei n Auckland and watch out for those pesky tornados!
