Bizarre things you see

This is the window of a butcher's shop in a suburb in Christchurch. Whatever.

Mt Maunganui

Every few weeks I have been staying overnight by the beach at Papamoa, in Bill and Fay's driveway (they are off in Australia for 6 months). I like to drive along to the Mount to have breakfast. The harbourside is a lovely place to park the van and linger a while with the newspaper or a book.

Rolling Dixie

Have been living in Dixie the van since coming back from Australia. It is so easy and very comfortable. I have a pile of good books on board and bags of threads and wools but somehow manage to keep so busy that I never get around to stitching or reading. How easy it is to fill in whole days when you are not tied up with working.

Went to the Tauranga Embroiderers' Guild exhibition last weekend. I'd share some pictures of my favorite works but I couldn't take any because I have lost my camera. I'm trying to be philosophical about it - things come and go - but I do really miss it. I also miss having easy access to broadband. I wonder about adding a satellite dish to the van, would that work?
