365 in 2013

Sunday: guinness cake and card for my pops
It was Father’s Day. I bought my dad a flagon of beer, made a chocolate-guinness cake, and gave him a card that referenced Biggie. You wish your dad was this cool.

Monday: I adore these orchids
I love these orchids we were given when we settled on our house. I wonder when they will die.

Tuesday: teeniest garden
Teeniest garden. Teeniest leaves.

Wednesday: alley way on the walk home
Ominous alleyway on the way home. I’ve never taken these stairs. I don’t think I ever will.

Wednesday: Foxglove post-artopening
I felt like I was coming down with something but went to a friend’s exhibition anyway. Then we went to Foxglove for another glass of wine.

Friday: sick day
Sick day. While the sun blazed outside. Worst combination ever.

Saturday: civic square
I needed fresh air. I went and sat in Civic square and drank a coffee.

Sunday: flowers in Thorndon
Flowers in Thorndon. I met up with friends for coffee.

Monday: cooking paleo. Ish
Craig is eating 80% paleo and I’m trying to support him. It means we end up with unusual ingredients for our usual cupboard.

Tuesday: one of those days
Tuesday. It was one of those days. It always seems to be on a Tuesday.

Wednesday: rain all of the rain
We were promised apocalyptic storms. It just rained. A lot. But still …

Thursday: new Westpac sign
There’s a new Westpac on Lambton Quay and they’ve used their logo as the W in Welly. It’s quite cute.

Friday: blue skies and old buildings
Blue sky, blue building, blue heart.

Saturday: rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes, she shall have music wherever she goes.
(This is a very sedate ring-day for me)


Beanie, glasses, and cricket face

    Oh, Tuesdays, and also all the days sometimes. I love the wreath ring, you are very jewel-inspirational (as in I’m always like “that’s riiight, I love trinkets” when I see your stuff.)

      Spending all my money on tattoos and trinkets. That’s my lot in life.

    Your orchids don’t need to die they will regrow! When they have finished blooming just cut the stalk down, not too short, so there are at least a couple of knuckles. Keep watering it and it will sprout again. I’ve had some for years now

      Oo! Thank you for the tip. I’ve always wondered how short to cut the stalk.
