Scatterday N - 26 Jan 2008

This week the letter N wasn't quite so hard - I had the perfect photo for the South American part that I had taken a few weeks ago at a fair - The Amazonas singing South American songs & using interesting looking instruments - none of them starting with N I might add! I had a hard job coming up with something starting with N in this photo but I persevered & in the end won through - Noise and Noses - and they could be from Niteroi in Brazil couldn't they? Highly unlikely I suspect.
The orange Nasturtiums are from my garden, we were in the middle of taking up the plastic weedmat and replacing the bark when winter hit us so this is what it looked like before xmas when we restarted it! Totally overgrown and running amuck but it did look so pretty.
Finally, I've never actually tasted NZ Spinach but I know I won't like it!

Blog365 - Day 21

The weather has been just too hot to go walking for awhile now and by the time it gets cooler all my energy has been zapped it was up to 31oC/92oF today - if you're feeling a blast of cold air that's my fan going! We have a long weekend coming up so I fully intend to go somewhere I haven't been before. This is the month of May for the 2007 album.

Blog365 - Day 17

The dry sunny weather has broken and it's been raining all day today, still hot & humid though! I didn't take any photos yesterday, we went out for dinner to my cousin's place and I took the camera intending to get a photo of us three cousins but we talked so much I forgot until the other cousin had left! However, I did get a loan of a few wonderful old photographs of my mother's family to copy so I'm over the moon.
I'm currently doing a Year in Review album for 2007 so thought I'd start posting one of those a day when I haven't got anything else. Surprise surprise this is January 2007!

Blog365 - Day 16

Gee it's hot, don't know where to put myself so I think it'll be in my bed soon! It's midnight and it's still 21oC! We went off to explore another Farmers' Market yesterday morning, this time the one in Oratia next door to Just Plane Interesting at 99 Parrs Cross Rd. A fairly small one but beautifully fresh and well presented food, luckily for me the Maori potatoes (photo below) were there again so I bought two bags today, making the most of them before they disappear. I walked through a plum orchard to get there (to get away from the dust the cars were covering me in) and saw these huge yummy looking plums so couldn't resist a photo or two, but didn't hang around in case the owner thought I was eating them as well!
