well I started this post yesterday and was side tracked when I went out to get the post from the mailbox, you know how this goes...
well I started pulling a few weeds from the paving, and before you know it I had on my gardening gloves, trowel and secateurs in hand, and spent the whole day in the garden - looks great now ... but boy do I ache in some places...
Anyway, I started to tell you that Monday's just don't seem to happen in our household - great huh! Rowing Man has Monday's off so they are now part of our weekend - most weeks anyway. It is so wonderful, we get to spend so much time together, which is so different to how it was back in Dunedin.
This Monday - after a very long week just past, what with all the rowing for Maadi Cup -National secondary schools championships - which by the way went rather well.. hmmm I digress - another story..
...this Monday we decided to head over to Cromwell town via the Lindis Pass, which by the by is a very nice albeit winding ride (lots curves tight corners up hill down dale stuff).
Rowing Man wanted a hair cut (which again is a whole other story on it's own), and he is looking rather woolly, get some groceries and I wanted to check out Seqouia -
this is a really quaint serendititous shop - yeh you know the kind we all like to look in
lots to browse and delve and poke and wonderful wonderful eye candy,
and of course - QUILTS!!!!
this shop had the most amazing etched glass art work, must have for our new house when we we start building....
this town was an old town that supported the gold miners, which were mostly Chinese that came over to make their fortunes in the late 1800's, some did, and many many others didn't. I am always fascinated at these old walls, they have been standing for such a long time, and still look so perfectly stacked...
then yummy lunch
and coffee - really seriously GOOD coffee - aren't these cups just way too cute, and just the size that Rowing Man likes so much! So we sat and chatted, and ate our lunch and enjoyed our coffee, and each other's company, and this marvellous view
hmmmm life is so sweet....
have a great week all,
