More images of NZ

Because I can't share too many pictures of my progress on the SSCS I thought I'd share some more images of New Zealand.
First up, another image taken at Benmore.
The view through the kitchen window at Tonys folks house. I could wash dishes all day long!!
And two views of the back gardens.

A veggie patch and a Christmas tree!
It's been a few years since we were there, so I guess the gardens will have changed a little, bushes and trees will be bigger and I know some are gone, damaged by the heavy snows in 2006. I love gardens and like to potter around pulling weeds etc, but I just can't imagine maintaining a garden that big.

My day off work today, boy do I need it. These two weeks are pretty intensive, with late shifts and days off seemingly few and far between. I plan to do a lot of what I want and very little of anything else! So that will include some sewing on the swap goodies, the main gift is virtually finished, then perhaps I'll find a movie to watch this afternoon and sit with a stitchery project or (Gasp in surprise) my cross stitch! It's been a while.

Gratitude's
1) A quiet empty house.
2) A day off.
3) A morning kiss from Hunney.

It is very beautiful - that view would ensure my dishes got washed right away! Glad you're getting some downtime.

It's lovely Loulee. I have been to Benmore in recent years so must have been close to your future PIL.

Wow only 18 more days!
( the weather has been really strange so I hope it settles down by then )
