This is Happening

Kieran's first day of 'real' classes today he's doing an Engineering degree and thinking of a double major with Maths.

An old fave

Les and the boys are getting avocados each week at Fruit Loop. Most weekends Will uses them to make Guacamole. He and Les have a new recipe- and Will likes making refinements to it each week... a little more tobasco, less chilli powder etc.

Sparks Joy ~ Art

That a person can put their spirit on paper, or pour it in cast metal, or carve it from wood or stone, or mould it from clay and make something that may be enjoyed by many people is a gift for our souls.

It sparks so much joy for me to spend time looking at art in real life and on the internet.

A Hard Nut to Crack

Les and the boys got Macadamia nuts at Fruit Loop- and then had a great time cracking them with the vice on the woodwork table.

Mynd Craft

In the holidays Will and Robert attended Myndcraft camp- they had a fantastic day from 9am - 3pm. Will was pretty rapt to get promoted from camper to coach. :-) They were super lucky as they got the books and the T-shirts as well all thanks to Clare.

Sparks Joy ~ Kittens and Cats

Kittens are quite simple one of the best things ever. When they're awake, asleep, alone or en masse! They are so funny, so cute and just totally adorable. Joy in a ball of fur.

Cats on the other hand are aloof and often variable in their moods and affections. Their coolness comes from their coolness. Their ability to totally own even the most staunch of dogs is awesomeness on paws. And if you have the good fortune to be considered in the good graces of a cat- it's a true joy to behold. Cats rock... I totally miss ours. 

A Friend Flies In

Les took these pics of a Kiwi Friend Dave- he's the one in the cockpit landing the plane!
