Good Afternoon from New Zealand

We had our first frost this morning, not a particularly heavy one, but it’s a reminder that winter is only a matter of weeks away. It’s a little after 3pm, and already I can feel the chill in the air so we are likely to have another heavier frost in the morning.

Mt Ruapehu

crater lake temperature has peaked at 41°C in the last 12 days following weeks of temperatures around 36°C to 38°C, but experts are predicting only minor eruptive activity from the volcano in the near future.

Coq au Vin for dinner tonight. It’s been simmering away in the crockpot all day and the house smells delicious!

I’m going to put my good morning from New Zealand post on hold for the immediate future. I have found myself back at work – don’t ask how that happened! – and regrettably I just don’t have the time. Hopefully it’s a temporary thing as I was really enjoying my retirement. I will still be posting my book reviews.

Have a wonderful day.

    1. You’re not kidding Carol. I am struggling. But I go pick my youngest son up from the airport Friday week. I haven’t seen him in over three years so I am not available for the ten days he’s home. Something to look forward to. ❤

  1. I sure hope you are able to get back to your retirement soon. We, of course, are dealing with having to turn the AC on. I woke up today with the house so humid and 74 degrees, so I finally broke down and turned it on. Stay safe! ❤☕🌞
