I saw a lot of sausages today. Fundraising for Waikato U18 hockey.
So, this happened today. Aonghas poured himself a glass of home pressed apple juice which he diluted and added some sugar to. ( he didn’t need to add sugar but he has a sweet tooth!) Then he put it on the table at his place to dinner. About 5 minutes later we heard the sound of glass breaking. The glass had spontaneously shattered! Very neatly but lots of mess! Apple juice all over but glass in a neat pile. We collected it all and put it on a plate to carry away but took a photo first.
Shortest day. On a count down to summer! Managed to squeeze a run in on the way down to Taumarunui today. A new trail – Mangaokewa – a bit gnarly through the bush but then came out into beautiful limestone valley.
After a day working with teachers I unwound in the pub. Shame the Chiefs didn’t win against the Lions but good to see the hand pull pump finally working.
A day working with inspiring teachers again. Today I was in Taupō. Got ready to go for a run at the end of the day to find I had left my shoes at home! Went for a swim instead. A tad chilly but refreshing and beautiful – swimming with ducks!
Surprisingly, my legs feel ok…maybe the pain will be delayed until tomorrow? Went for a gentle stroll around the lake while Gus was at hockey training. Turned into a beautiful morning but the ducks were slow to wake up!
Bit off a bit more than I could chew today! I should have stuck to my gut feeling and turned around earlier but I went with Jo and Paula all the way to Waotu South which meant I had to come all the way back! Had to dig deep for the last 5km!
So, 31km under my belt. Wonder if I’ll be able to walk tomorrow! We are lucky to have the Waikato River Trails on our doorstep though!
After a long day in workshops, I was ready to curl up on the sofa in front of the fire. But we had tickets to see Tami Nielson and boy, did she wake me up! What a stunning voice and a brilliant show. Also discovered another cool little venue tucked away in The Tron. Shh! Not telling.
Early morning walk around the lake. A beautiful sunrise, delicate pink and a still lake.
