Here we are, and it’s Sunday again, just where did this week go, we wonder? It’s been rather a cold, miserable week, as far as the weather was concerned. Just as well we now have a brand new Heat Pump, so we are warm and cozy inside. Robin has recently purchased a “Minimum Maximum Thermometer” and makes a point of checking it each morning. So far the coldest temperature recorded here overnight this week was –3.
The cold conditions brought a dumping of snow on the Tararua Ranges, it does look pretty in the background. Snow closed the Desert Road for a while, fell on the Rimutaka Hill, and plenty more down in the South Island, the ski fields in particular where certainly pleased. And we were so pleased that we had traveled home from our trip earlier in the week and were not caught up in snow and ice on the roads.

Traditionally, our Sunday mornings start with a bacon and egg breakfast, cooked by Robin. Always nice and tasty, especially on a chilly morning. And talking of cold weather food, the crock pot is simmering away with some tasty pumpkin soup for lunch. It’s a hard life being retired, and we certainly never seem to go hungry, either!
