Winters here

Winter is here for sure. We have snow all around us, but not in Duntroon it's self, which is amazing...and, if you ask me just plain lucky!

On Thursday last week Andrew come for a walk with me, he hasn't been since as he is still cold from Thursdays excursion! I took the camera I won from The Scrapbook Awards competition last month with me and had a play with it along the way.

Check out my 'snaps'...

I love to view the end of a winter's day from the top of this hill. The view is awesome. 

Andrew only stopped in the sunny spots! One of the many down sides of being a Tetraplegic is that ones circulation does not work as it should and 'cold' is an issue.


I just had to photograph this gate before heading for home. may be able to tell that I pretty much walked home alone...Andrews only thought was to get back home  to the fire...


I'm pretty sure that this week it will just be Tui (my dog) and I out walking alone again.

Today Camden and Abby, who were home for the Fire Brigade AGM and dinner last night were to head back to Dunedin today, but the Motorway closed about mid-day, so instead they headed to Kakanui (to Abby's house) for the night. Maybe tomorrow they might get back to Dunedin, but its not looking like a sure bet yet as I believe the snow is still falling.

Hope all of you in the South, and the North are warm and cosy tonight.

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
