Round About Way

Reminded me of a Traffic Circle. Here in NZ, we have loads of these and they are called "Round Abouts".

Today's Gratitude Item: Winter Pyjamas! Night time temperatures here in Auckland have 'dipped' in recent days and there is a decided chill in the air.

Today's Gratitude Item: Being able to eat bread again! Pesach is over and let's just say it's amazing how great bread tastes after eight days of matzos.

In my world, a Saturday morning sunrise looks like this.

Today's Gratitude Item: Finding Terry Pratchett's The Fifth Elephant as an eBook from my local library. I ran out of paper books to read and said library was closed because of the Easter break. The novelty of being able to download fun holiday reading has not yet worn off. Almost as good is the fact that I can read the book on my iPad without needing to turn on the lights.

Today's Gratitude Item: That the weather only turned to custard after I was back from my morning walk. The garden sort of needs the rain and it made for a nice day spent indoors.

Today's Gratitude Item: That the sushi shop which I frequent on Saturdays was open today. We're in the middle of Easter weekend and with public holidays yesterday and tomorrow, I'd anticipated said shop being closed for the holidays. In a way, it would have been good for the owners to take a well deserved break but seen as they were open, I made the most of the opportunity.
