I'm slowly accepting winter is nearly here, even though Meteorologists consider winter began in New Zealand on the 1st June - I hold off until Winter Solstice - the shortest day of the year, but not the coldest by no means. It has been cold and dark. Dark nights, stuck inside... I just don't get why people love winter....
There has been lots of knitting and watching tv at nights. Netflix has arrived in New Zealand and we signed up for a months free trial perfect timing for winter nights.
Yesterday I had finished another huge assignment and gave myself permission to sit and knit by the fire watching season 3 of Orange is the New Black . What a fab show (have to shut eyes often and learn way more than I need to) But the writers and actors take me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I'm looking forward to season 4 - Looks like there is a Martha Stewart character coming into the show. Hope they have the inmates knitting ponchos.
We have our turkey ready and the bonfire pile is waiting to be lit to mark the turn of the wheel and celebrate Winter Solstice.
Farm Stay guests....
Shiloh is more than at home and has claimed one of the chairs as her spot.
As for Symba he was a little more settled. I woke in the night worrying about the fella with all the heavy rain, as he had tucked himself up in the outdoor house at my last check in. I need not of worried as in the morning I found him asleep inside tucked up under all the blankets and quilts on the other chair. I didn't make him have a photo. But he let me give him a pat and accepted being hand feed cat nuts in bed, so Symba is also slowly accepting he is back here again.
