How was your Thankgiving/day yesterday? Please feel free to tell us about your day.
We don’t do “Thanks giving” in New Zealand.
Yesterday was just an ordinary sort of day – like and unlike others.
Got up and cooked my breakfast of rolled oats.
Ailsa left to start a trip down to see her parents in Dunedin. In the first stage she drove to Christchurch and spent the evening with our daughter.
I spent the morning doing a field trip with two others from the Kaikoura Zone Water Management Committee and one guy from the regional Pest management committee, as we flew over the coastal Kaikouras, then down to the confluence of the Branch and Clarence Rivers, then up the river at low level right up to the headwaters, and back again. I took about 270 photos. A lot of invasive broom in the upper reaches.
After I got home from that, made myself some lunch of avocado and tomatoe on wholemeal toast. Then I did a little programming work, then cooked myself some dinner, and then took two of the young German WWOOFers out fishing. After we got back I took the dogs for a walk, read a little of “Abundance” by Peter Diamandis and Steve Kotler, and went to sleep.
