So many Quays

Wellington has a penchant for Quays

There are so many quays in Wellington: Jervois Quay, Customhouse Quay, Waterloo Quay, Thorndon Quay and Lambton Quay.

Today I share some pics of Lambton Quay the main street in Wellington. I took these quite some time ago. Maybe there are a few changes but by and large it still is the same.

but David Jones is expected to open at Christmas

A couple of fragments this week

Mother's day tomorrow so I spent this morning making my mom a card. She likes perfume so I got her Elizabeth Arden's 5th Avenue,

I've ordered some art books so looking forward to receiving them. They've been dispatched so should arrive soon.

I guess that's all this week.

Happy Mother's Day to all moms and grandmoms.

Pampered Feet

Pampered Feet with a foot spa

My daughter always gifts something awesome for my birthday and Christmas. 2 of the gifts that I really love are the  Foot Spa and Pedicure set.

So this morning I thought I should bring out the spa and pamper my feet. I highly recommend a foot spa. My feet feel refreshed and oh so clean.  

I haven't tried the pedicure set yet, Will have to read the instructions before I attempt it. 






This week I also tried a new painting technique using plastic wrap (better known as Glad wrap here in NZ). Followed this video by Cat Hand. It was fun even though the results weren't as good as Cat's.

with the plastic wrap on 

final result - first try. the colours weren't so vivid as I expected them to be.

final result - second try. could've been better but this was good enough.

In my younger days I would have persisted until I got the perfect picture, but that would have taken a lot of time and effort for what may have been minuscule improvements. But now with a different perspective on things, the definition of perfection changes.

More often than not, imperfect is perfect.

And now I will have to find something to paint on top of this perfect background.

It's been a hectic but peaceful week.

Wishing you all a peaceful week too.

Overcast Sky

An overcast sky is a necessity

We've had some great sunny weather lately but early this week we had a very overcast sky.

It's not fun to walk in the cold wind and the rain (and the wind here is cold and very blustery). But an overcast sky is a necessity. Without the rain it would be a very dry Earth.

It was a strange sky. Lots of blue and dark grey side by side. But it looked quite spectacular.



When life seems like an overcast sky, remember that the blue sky exists behind those grey clouds
