As in going out of town not out of my head!!!
But you knew that right?!?!?!
My mid week trip out to the Airport was one covered in FOG. In fact so much fog that no planes were flying in or out. The left photo was taken in the upstairs lounge where you can normal watch the comings and goings of the planes. The right photo was taken out the front window of the work van while I was waiting at the intersection. It was a Pea Soup kinda day for sure.
On a dull old day I drove through to Morrinsville to check out the Charity Shops and take my son and his girlfriend out for lunch.
This one, Everybody's Shop, is hard to find if you have never been there before but now that I know where it is, it is a must to call in to. I found the large Trug and the beautiful old book in the photo below.
The gorgeous Doily was found in the Hospice Shop,
I love the Butterfly.
It was the pictures inside 'Alice in Wonderland'
that lured me into this purchase.
The tiny vase was $1 @ the Hospice shop and perfect for my Daphne. Oh look, another old basket, found @ the Salvation Army across the road from me.
Three of the five Grand-furchildren. Stella, Luna and Kea. The other cat and rabbit were busy. We, not the furries, went to The Crazee Cow Cafe and had lunch outside as it wasn't raining!! Fabulous food too.
On my way out of Morrinsville I stopped to have a look in Hidden Treasures. A shop full of, well, hidden treasure!!! The odd purchase has been made here and they also make very nice coffee.
No spending happened that day tho'.
I am pretty sure that the pets around here just SLEEP all day @ the moment.
Even in his slumber Big was my fridge magnet model,
So I did!!
And I made patterns with my clothes pegs while having lunch on the deck seen as Toebee wouldn't accommodate me and wake up!
Saturday TOF and I drove up State Highway 1 to Auckland to visit his mother. She had been back in hospital after having a fall at home. But after x-rays and some bed rest she was sent home with a concoction of drugs. The worst part about parents getting older is the health part. Lucky for us she has a positive attitude and fully intends to be back out and about asap!!
Heading homeward we found ourselves chasing a RAINBOW!
We managed to get out in the garden this morning and fill our garden bin that is being emptied tomorrow. Not long after we had finished it tipped down and continued to rain off and on all day. I rescued the little daffodils from the rain to enjoy them inside. I keep telling myself everyday, SUMMER is getting closer!
But until then we will enjoy outside when we can and try and get a spot in front of the heater if there is one. GOOD LUCK with that when you have pets.
