No! Not for clothes. No point in doing that. No point in shopping for clothes unless it is a new carhart jacket. When I get back to the farm it will be work clothes all the way – until January when I return to New Zealand for Senior Son’s wedding. So I am leaving my suitcase here. My ‘good’ clothes can sit here and wait. It will save me all the bother of dragging them back and forth across the world.
Gardening makes me hungry so I was shopping for food. Food in New Zealand is expensive. Meat is very expensive. New Zealand is not a cheap place to live. But the food is fresh, home grown and wonderful. So we just eat less of it. After another day in the wild garden (I kept my fingernails clean for all of 10 days) we went to a wonderful super-market in Wellington today. Moore Wilsons.
All is good – just as long as you stand above the Tsumani line!
Piles of vegetables and a little lamb.
I hope you are all having a great day.
Love your friend in New Zealand,
