365 days of gratitude

August 24, 2018

The photo on the top of this blog was taken one evening when I was preparing dinner, looked out the kitchen window and saw the rainbow.

I grabbed my camera (this was the days before phones took photos), captured the shot and by the time I got back inside the rainbow had gone.

I was reminded of that when I saw the photo on Fonterra’s tweet in the post below this one.

Rainbows are symbols of promise, they also remind me to enjoy the moment.

Today I”m grateful for the symbolism and the reminder.

3. What colour is eau-de-nil?

5. Where is New Zealand’s largest earth dam and what is it called?

Busy day – no time to work out who got what, you’ll have to mark yourselves.
