2011 going, going...

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Quick checkin today.
We have caught up with quite a few old friends, nothing quite like it for reconnecting with your roots.
It's very strange being in my hometown which is so very different in parts from when I knew it, the CBD is still cordoned off and still will be for many more months I am sure. Some friends are untouched as they live in parts of the city that were scarcely affected by the quakes, whilst others have lost their homes. All are thankful their families and friends are still alive, though many people were killed in this pretty little city. The kindly trees and flowers of Christchurch persist and still provide beauty and amenity. emoticon
But the renewed Christchurch will be very far from my old hometown, those places are gone and the experience of the people living through the quakes & the aftermath, their sense of community in the new Christchurch is very far from my experience.
We will be travelling soon, waiting to know whether it is wise as heavy rains are expected and might close the country track to our destination. Maybe I will still have internet access and maybe not.
New Year's eve tomorrow, my attention is slipping away from making resolutions, perhaps I have already made them and am keeping them with SP? Sleeping better, check, exercise increased, check, fitness improved, check, more thoughtful eating, check. Perhaps more resolve and focus would help with the very slow weight loss, or maybe it would blow me out of the water, not sure about that. Praps I'll resolve to give that some thought...
Bye for now Sparkies, catch you next year! In the meantime, have a good one!

    Christchurch was one of my favorite places when my DH & I visited NZ a few years ago. I was heartsick at the news of the earthquakes. Hope they rebuild even better and more beautiful (and sturdier?).
Happy New Year!
