There's not alot you can do in the rain here in Northland. Most winter days are spent keeping warm on cold frosty nights while enjoying mild sunny days - but this year has been different. We've had so much rain that we've had major road slips, ok so we had a break last week but it wasn't enough for conditions to dry out. When I'm out walking Tia I take her on a verge of grass down the end of a neighbouring road and that was still boggy under my feet.
Today yet again we have rain, the only positive thing is that it's filling up my watertank outside. You see, we aren't connected by the main water line that most people have. Everyone in small towns has a concrete or hard plastic tank in their yard and we rely on the rain to fill it up throughout the year. Once in a while when someone runs out we just call a local water delivery company.
That's my deck outside, backyard and my neighbours two water tanks inside of his fence.
My potted succulents haven't stopped growing with all the rain but sooner or later they're going to want to dry out.
This is my plan for the day - reading "Tudors" by one of my favourite authors Peter Ackroyd.
Tia has the right idea - she's hibernating under a blanket. Hopefully you're enjoying your Sunday too - would love to hear what you're up to today :-)
