It was such a lovely sunset on Friday, July 7, 2017.
Last day term two!
I work from three to five at Plateau School.

To my young friends out there: Life can be great, but not when you can’t see it. So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors that God gave us as a precious gift to His children, to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count. Say yes to your life.

Mother earth has so much to give.
Do we really appreciate?
Last three to four weeks we had unusual weather. It was still just over 20 degrees C which is quite hot for this time of year. We also had a lot of rain too. The warm weather brought two cyclones. Cyclone Debbie was the first one and less than a week it was followed by cyclone Cook. Debbie did not reach us in the lower North Island but cyclone Cook brought heavy rain and strong winds. People were asked to put their long weekend arrangements on hold because some roads were expected to wash away, slips could also occur.
As soon as the weather cleared again I found more toadstools popping out. I found these on the lawn on the roadside.
Autumn is upon us here in New Zealand.
Leaves are changing colour.
With the warm days and lots of rain,
toadstools came out
showing off their colourful heads.
Trompie had his last haircut before the cold is upon us!
This morning everything is foggy.
From my doorstep.
We are expecting
It is already battering the Northern part of the North Island
and is slowly moving down south to us.
We are warned to stay inside,
have our emergency bags ready.
The next 48 hours is going to be tricky to everyone.
Winds of up to 160km p hour are expected and Lots of rain.
This week, share your take on “dense” — you could focus on a natural landscape like I did, or take the theme in a different direction, from a sweaty crowd at a rock concert or a busy avenue during rush hour to a fresh loaf of bread, waiting for someone to take the first bite.
Says Ben Huberman at-
Last weekend I had the opportunity to fly from Wellington, NZ North Island to Nelson NZ, South Island. It was very cloudy when we left Wellington.
I mentioned in my previous post about the frogs I had to feed while house sitting high up in the hills near Upper Hutt New Zealand.
Here are more photos. They were so tiny when I took these photos at my arrival. After the two weeks feeding them flies they were twice the size.
During my house sitting, I had to feed two frogs and
about twenty tadpoles.
This frog is just under one centimetre.

I put the lens against the glass of the fish tank.
