First of all let me wish everyone a belated New Year.
How did you celebrate? Did you celebrate?
We didn't. We had our grandson staying
so thought we might at least sit up until midnight
but he scooted off to bed about 10:30pm
and so we went not long after.
It still happened without us :)
We were a bit spoilt on New Year's day, a friend invited
us out to lunch and we had a very enjoyable catch up
with her at one of the hotels a couple of suburbs over.
That evening we were also invited to our son's home for the evening meal. We had a delicious cold meal, summer noodles, followed by icecream with a passionfruit sauce over it.
This was all finished off with rose petal tea
(coffee for my GKB) served in beautifully fine
porcelain tea cups. So delicate. In the bottom
of the cup was an image in the porcelain of the
head of a Japanese lady. I think you'll see it
if you look closely at the picture below.
We all headed to the beach afterwards, next time
I'll take my swimming togs. It was a beautiful
evening and the water wasn't too cold. Some of
us paddled, one of us decided the water was
too cold and another one guarded the cardigans,
cell phones etc. We headed home about 8:30pm.
After grandson headed back up to Christchurch
we had a day or two just relaxing and then Sassy
arrived to stay for a couple of nights. She's missing
her family but once she realized we were actually
going to feed her and take her for walks she perked up.
She has been good and it's been fun having a dog again
for a little while. We were out early for our walk this
morning as the forecast was for warm temps during
the day, it's 31C at present. Unless it cools off somewhat
she may miss out on her evening jaunt :)
And that has been our first week of 2019.
I hope yours has been just as relaxing.
