Sweet Spot Coffee

SSC got into big trouble because they have a cute assistant but she has a loud shrill voice and when somebody walks past she'll say "Free lemonade for you!".

Kane Chronicles

Her obsession with anything ancient Egyptian, lead us to purchase these Rick Riordan trilogy.

Fingers cross they are as good as The Percy Jackson and Olympian series.

I wrote this entry, this morning, hoping that the 400+ pages long novels would last for months, oh how wrong was I.  She chewed through the book like yummy chocolates and got to the end by 4pm.  
I think she mastered skim, I only got up to chapter 4 in an hour's time.

Postcard from NZ

It is the season of change again and here is another postcard from ever changing face of nature in New Zealand.

"Spring rain has been in abundance; dark, rolling masses unfolding from the west and the cold that often comes with it..the storms of change, strong winds and battering rains but it's a time of change for all living things isn't it? 

Two blackbirds are mating in my garden now unperturbed by it all it would seem and yesterday a tired pigeon came into the shelter of my garage to die in a warm corner of its choosing but I foolishly sent it back outside before I realised what it really wanted.  It's lack of energy to escape was my clue and I didn't read it well. 
Story of my life it would seem. I don't read clues.

The pale-eyed, grey clad armies of winter huddle around now smokeless fires ushering in the triumphant, blazing reds and golds and brilliant greens of spring.  

Truly every season is wonderful and you and I are still above the ground to see them.  How lovely for us both."

Indeed, every changes brings their own loveliness.  Even the slightest shift in one mind's paradigm can bring out the brightest light from within.
More of this to come later, but now, lets thank the season of change.
