It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.

The humans spend much time inside, too. Probably too much. We tend to do a lot more experimental cooking and baking those days in Covid-19 lockdown. Looking forward to when we can have a life again and see people.

Nevertheless a few pictures to brighten up your mood and to make you happy(er).

We do more baking and experimental cooking those days in lockdown.

It’s hard to get the food you are used to and hard to get ingredients, too. So you simply try new stuf. Those buns are gluten free and have pumpkin and sunflower seeds in them.

Did I say we get a lot of nice sunsets? We also get a lot of nice sunrises if you are up early enough.

Well, I guess they happen anyway, even if nobody is there to see them.

The horse race will need some maintenance in summer and be completely replaced. It’s been a few years now and it has become quite muddy with ponding water.

Flooding – groundhog day

This year was special and I had not yet seen the water that high. Kumeu and Waimauku townships flooded too and other suburbs in West Auckland. For some it was pretty bad and I feel sorry for the affected people – and animals.
