366 days of gratitude

The seasons don’t follow the calendar but it’s nearly 7am before the sun rises and there’s definitely an autumnal feeling to morning temperatures.

I’m not yet ready to farewell summer but one of the benefits of living where we do is that we do get different seasons.

While I don’t enjoy that we sometimes get all four in a single day, I do like the changes seasons bring to the colour and produce from the garden and I’m grateful for that.

    Couldnt agree more Ellie. I just love the seasons in New Zealand not too hot and not too cold but at least we get changes. Having spent time in Papua New Guinea where we had the wet season when it was hot, humid and wet and the dry season when it was hot humid but didnt rain as much: oh so boring and still too bloody hot and difficult to sleep at night when you didnt have the benefit of air conditioning. We live in truly a beautiful country which is bountiful and has a system of Government which gives us freedom of speech and lets us choose the way we live out lives. It is just a pity that we have so many who do not appreciate this fact and constantly criticize and moan about what is going on in NZ.. I am 65 years of age and have traveled extensively and there is not a day goes by that I dont wake up and thank God that I was born and live in this wonderful place called New Zealand. Also I do not wish to change the flag and will be voting against any change.
