Tonight we are getting signs of winter. Lots of snow in the south island, and a coolish night with lots of intense rain. Mum was glad that it was only just starting as she left work, so she got the groceries home nice and dry. She was feeling our small pantry was a bit depleted, but now feels better as she has lots of nice things to take for lunch this week, and most of the weeks dinners planned. Tonight she had leftover sausages, peas and mash from last night with some kiwifruit for her supper. Tomorrow night she has pork chops and will roast up some sweet potato + potatoes and cook up a big lot of broccoli and carrots that will last most of the week.
Eggs were boiled tonight to make sandwiches tomorrow for lunch and a quick eggs on toast for breakfast, and the rest of the week there is soup to take to work with a toasted cheese sandwich - good cold weather food.
We were looking at those destructive tornadoes in the US on the news. Scary stuff, we are so lucky that we only have a few little ones in NZ. Amazing that anyone survives.
Oh and another sign of winter is that every night I climb onto mums lap for a little snooze. No longer than five minutes. She sits quietly and lets me snuggle, but I never stay long.
Have a great night. Keep warm or cool depending on where you live!!
