I don't know where the time goes. The week has just flown by but then they all seem to do that.
I had two meetings on Monday plus visiting a friend:
On Tuesday I took my car in for its 6 monthly warrant of fitness on the way to walk Sophie I then had a one and a quarter hour dental appointment for two fillings. In the afternoon I had a visit by a valuer as I had put in an objection to the valuation for our house and then had to go and collect the car.
On Wednesday after the dog walk we did a supermarket shop and after lunch took Doug's daughter to the Hospital for a check on her broken leg and then went for a walk at the Town Basin. In the evening was the highlight as we went to the Pantomime Cinderella put on by the Kamo High School. It was excellent. It is running from Tuesday night to Saturday night and I know they had a showing on Tuesday afternoon for the local Primary and Intermediate Schools. Pantomimes are not common here in New Zealand but there was good audience participation and I was amazed at the talent. Unfortunately, photos were not allowed.
On Thursday after the dog walk we spent the rest of the morning in my garden weeding and planting silver beet (Swiss Chard), Curly Kale and Penstemons. In the afternoon I went to the Rest Home where there was a special afternoon tea attended by the Mayor and other "dignitaries", then came home and took the two cats for their annual vet checks.
Today has been wet, on the way home from walking Sophie we came across a very wet little dog in the middle of the road not far from home. I had a feeling it might be a neighbours dog so put it on Sophie's lead and walked it home. They were all out but after I had written a note to attach to their door knob some family members had arrived and after much discussion decided it was the families new dog (it is usually fluffy but was drenched and covered in mud). I then had a good sort out putting away my summer clothes and replacing them with the winter ones and have just made a batch of Buckwheat Pancakes (and eaten several).

Some interesting cloud formations
The blackbirds have returned - they all seemed to disappear in the drought
It is duck shooting season so is good to see them safe on this river.
