Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Happy New Year

The morning after I hope you are not feeling as bad as he looks.

So, go celebrate, be careful, have a designated driver, or take a taxi.

Thank you to all my readers, family, friends, blogger friends, and all you folk who just stop by to take a look. You are all appreciated.

I wish for you all, an outstanding New Year

Flowers still blooming in December

So far, we have not had any severe cold weather, so there are still some flowers in the garden, adding a splash of color.

Doe and her fawn

These two are regular visitors to my friend's house. They enjoy the sunflower seeds my friend feeds them.

Ten Christmas centerpieces done.

 Ten plastic wine glasses from the Dollar store, some evergreen branches, spray glue, small pine cones, red glitter glue, Epsom salt, red tinsel, a battery operated flickering candle, and some pretty paper doilies.

Put it all together, and you have pretty, easy to assemble center pieces. These will will be used at our annual Fishin' club Christmas party on Friday evening.

I am back, at least for now

Yes, I have been away for a while. Blogging along with other things in my life, are difficult to get done at this time of year. It seems I am effected by 'Seasonal affective disorder' (Seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, is a type of depression that affects a person during the same season each year. If you get depressed in the winter but feel much better in spring and summer, you may have SAD.) 
I become rather depressed, and not motivated to do all that I usually enjoy. For me, this disorder is all brought about by the dull, sunless days of winter.
Today, I pushed myself to go outside and take a look at my garden. I was surprised to find these few flowers still blooming. Cheered me up no end.
