True spring weather it is now southerly and very fresh. Big day today with Zumba, housework and grocery shopping and a visitor coming by this afternoon. I want to harvest my silver beet today, a friend reminded me that you can cook and freeze it... Read more

A visit from my mojo

Sunday, November 04, 2012      3 comments

Feeling good today. Despite the fact that I only caught 6 hours sleep, so my sleep challenge isn't exactly a roaring success. Started the day with 35 minutes on the elliptical, followed by stretches, while I watched "The Killing" on TV repl... Read more

Gardening today

Saturday, November 03, 2012      4 comments

Just having a short break from gardening, while my lunch goes down. It's a lovely day here but big clouds hovering so looks like rain. I should be outside while the sun shines, there is so much to do! Read more

Undies to the rescue

Thursday, October 25, 2012      7 comments

I had a ratty day yesterday. I forgot my swipe card, so I had to do the walk of shame. The security guards teased me about the junk in my bag. (At least it wasn't the junk in my undies!) Then second stage security didn't realize I work there an... Read more

Thank goodness! Our holiday weekend has been great, a few blasts of wind and right now the sky is darkening with rain, which was scheduled, but there has been a heap of sun, hence a heap of weeds have made their way to the chicken compound. Read more

8 hours' sleep - it must be Friday!

Thursday, October 18, 2012      3 comments

This blog is to remind myself yet again about the joys of a great night's sleep. I went to bed at 10.30 and woke on my own at 6.35, a whole 8 hours almost to the dot. Which is weird, what if I thought 8 hours and 7 minutes was just the right am... Read more

Another lovely day. I've done my morning exercise and errands, hung out the washing (yay, retiring the dryer for summer) and had a shower, and am about to go into the garden. One of my errands was that I picked up a Fitbit Zip. We got it f... Read more

Back on track

Lovely day today, I snapped a photo of my dear cat Edith enjoying the newly mown grass. No matter that she is 13, she still gets a big kick out of life. It's cool out in the wind, but lovely and warm in the sun inside the house. I'm enjoying g... Read more

TMI about sleep

Friday, October 12, 2012      4 comments

I didn't blog it yesterday but I woke yesterday morning feeling great. I felt some pleasant aches from doing some exercises I was unaccustomed to, but DH & I both commented on how well rested we felt and that is because we got 8 hours' sleep. ... Read more

What a great night's sleep I had last night. I've had a cold and it hasn't been so easy to sleep through, what with waking up coughing, so I guess that is why I am noticing how good I feel after a straight 7.5 hours. I think that getting a... Read more

Queenstown spring holiday: Majestic Milford

Sunday, September 30, 2012      5 comments

One of the things I love about traveling in New Zealand is the geology. Although we are a young country, there is all sorts of terrain. We flew into Queenstown on a lovely sunny day. Most of our trip was along the spine of the South Island... Read more

As I was saying, Arrowtown was a busy gold mining town. Here is a picture of a Chinese miner's hut... We enjoyed exploring these historic sites, such hard lives these min... Read more

The 30 Days of blogging has been great, but has displaced other blogs i might have written. And I've been having fun! We went to Queenstown, which is an alpine resort town in the central South Island. It is surrounded by amazing mountains, ca... Read more
