After doing his usual excited jumping and cavorting when I arrived home and indicated a walk was on the cards, Tobias sat dutifully while I put on his coat so he wouldn’t get cold.
He charged out of the door, tail wagging, until we made it five houses down the street and he refused to go any further. (Pictured). Too cold! Back to the heater.
Good Friday and the start of a four day weekend. It was a day spent inside keeping dry and warm. That’s the great thing about New Zealand, we get the remnants of the tropical storms without the hassle of all that tropical weather.
It rained non-stop all day so I spent the day in one room with the heater on.
As did Tobias who has ventured outside once and William who must have a bladder of iron.
As I have mentioned before, the weather this year has been rubbish – if it hasn’t rained, it’s been blustery. We have had one good day in Dunedin since Christmas. So, upon finding a wind free spot at the Botanical Gardens I was so delighted I had to share my joy. So may I present the second photo of the day for January 14.
It rained heavily for most of the day, such has been the norm so far this Summer. Settled in and spent most of the day playing Bioshock Infinite. Then the sun came out at around 6pm when I was in my PJs, had a very irritated eye (possible cat hair intrusion) and was at a crucial part in the game.
A friend came to visit today after being very aloof so far this year – the sun. The sun came out for a whole day and the neighborhood set to work in their gardens, went for walks on the beach, read books in the garden and felt good about life.
I am afraid the weather is dominating the posts at the moment. Why? Because it can’t make up its mind which makes it impossible to get anything interesting done! Saturday morning started out lovely and I was pottering around in summer clothes. Then the hail came (it is hard to see but is was easy to hear).
It was stinking hot the whole work day. I have no photos from today because Mr Pigalina and I raced out to the beach with the dog after walk with visions of swimming, frolicking and photo-taking. Instead we shivered our way towards the sea under a grey sky. Then the wind picked up forcing people closer to the shore to start running back towards the car park before the rain came.
This sums it up:
Well done Dunedin weather. You have claimed the life of my second umbrella this year. It made it the whole of the 2 kilometre walk to Mr Pigalina’s work, and then promptly blew inside out and beyond repair while I collected the mail from the mailbox at home.
