Weekend Walkabout - Farm Cove Reserve (part 2)




Welcome to Weekend Walkabout, a place to share and explore the different corners of our world.

Last week, I shared pics from our time at Farm Cove Reserve where I mentioned how much I thought Coco would enjoy visiting the place. I wasn't wrong. Here are the pics.

She's hard to catch




Walkabout is a phrase we use in NZ, which means to walk around and explore with no specific destination in mind. Have you been walkabout anywhere interesting this week? If so, post your story or pictures to your blog, leave a comment here and a link to your post on our Linky and Whitesnake or KB will come take a look. Don't forget to put a link to Weekend Walkabout so others can find us and join in the fun.





Righto, that's me all up to date. Tomorrow is the start of the long weekend,  Monday is Auckland Anniversary Day so I'll be spending my time with Whitesnake. See ya Tuesday.

Walkin' The Walk




30 days to a happier, healthier me - day 14.

I'm doing really well with my 30 min walks. I'm finding it much easier now that Whitesnake is exercising with me. He's even started running and Coco is enjoying getting more exercise too, (follow the link to read all about her views on exercising and see more pics). This week I'm going to do three walks of 30 mins each and I'm going to include some hill work on one of the sessions too.



Hurry up Mum!

Wait for me

Here's where we take our walks





Coco's sooo tired now
We're both eating much heathier meals now. This week I've been trying to find healthy ideas for lunch and snacks. My favourite lunch at the moment is Simply Delish Wholegrain Wraps..follow the link to see pics.

I think that's me up to date. I'm going to be posting more regularly on our joint blog KB and Whitesnakes Home   I post on one or the other every day so if you can't find me here, I'll be over there. I've also added a couple of pic badges on my sidebar for Simply Delish and Coco's World. You can click on the pics to take you directly to those sites.

See you tomorrow,

P.S. Happy Australia Day to all my friends across the ditch.

The Mysterious Naked Man



Hi, all is well in my neck of the woods. Hope you are all well too. 

Look what I received in the mail yesterday...

Thank you so much Janine. The book is fantastic, I think the title is hilarious and I especially loved the letter that came with it. I do believe you could be my long lost Krazy sister. That is quite the compliment my friend.

The weather has been all over the place in New Zealand. Today it's stormy but the last week has been HOT. So hot, I decided to buy Coco a paddling pool. She LOVES the water but I can't for the life of me get her in the paddling pool. Maybe she thinks she's going to get a shampoo while she's in there (she hates that). It hasn't gone to waste though, I've been dipping my feet in it at every opportunity.

Whitesnake has been busy writing a story for you all to read. The first installment has been posted on his blog...King Of Dreams.

We had a fun time with my parents yesterday and our health changes are going well but I think I'll leave that until tomorrow.

See you then,
Love KB

Weekend Walkabout - Farm Cove Reserve




Welcome to Weekend Walkabout, a place to share and explore the different corners of our world.

My wishes have been granted again....lucky me. It's been really hot recently and I've been telling Whitesnake how wonderful it would be to find a place we could walk Coco which has some water for her to cool off in. Also, we've been considering buying some weights so we could do some muscle conditioning exercises. Next thing we know, Mum and Dad invite us out to a picnic at one of thier favourite places. There are walking tracks, lots of shade, sea and weight machines. Perfect!













Next time we'll take Coco with us and she'll love it.

KB's Bookshelf - Survival Of The Fittest by Jonathan Kellerman






One of my goals this year is to read more books. Here's my first read of the year.

A book from the Alex Delaware series. I read a couple from the series earlier and loved them, this one was no exception. It's a fast-paced thriller, leading from a child's murder to a young scientist's suicide. Chilling, frightening but oh so good. I intend to read many more from this series.

What are you guys reading? I'm always on the look out for recommendations.

That's all from me today. See you tomorrow for Simply Delish.

I'm Blonde, Not Stupid




30 days to a happier, healthier me - day 13


I love doing puzzles, crosswords and playing word games but I don't do them as much as I'd like. So, my goal here is to get back to enjoying my puzzles on a daily basis. I'm going to keep my puzzle book next to my chair and every time Whitesnake gets up to just do this or that (which is often), I'm going to pick up my puzzle book and challenge my brain. You don't have to do puzzles like I do, board games are great or learning a musical instrument, or even a new language. Doing these kind of activities on a daily basisi will slow down the degeneration of brain cells and may even prolong your life.



Remember this?

Not quite right

Yay, I can still do it

See you tomorrow for... I haven't decided yet.

Previous 30 days to a happier, heathier me are here.

Sneezing



Here's my contribution to One Shot, have a great day/night all.





Sniffing and sneezing
When will it stop?
If I cough once more
my head will come off



Body's usually
so full of beans
Now sick as a dog
whatever that means



I'll heal myself
in my own sweet time
Back to bed 
not even a wine


Don't worry, I'm not sick, I came across this pic and it tickled my fancy  :)
See you tomorrow

Go To Bed Earlier




30 days to a happier, healthier me - day 12

I can sleep ten hours a night, given the opportunity but that opportunity rarely presents itself. Especially at the moment as Whitesnake has to cover some later shifts and I pick him up when he's finished. I've been heading to bed anywhere from 10pm to 1am...eek and it really stuffs up the old body clock.



Anyway, we seem to getting back more in to a routine and we're planning on getting to bed a bit earlier and at a more regular time, so we can be up earlier in the mornings to go on our walks. It's the middle of Summer in New Zealand so the earlier we can get out the better, not only for us but for Coco.

See you tomorrow
Sweet dreams

Microfiction Monday




Here's my contribution to Microfiction Monday. Each week the lovely Susan posts a picture and we write a story about it in 140 characters or less.





I knew I should have stuck it out on The Biggest Loser. This umbrella will never lift me high enough now I'm carrying all this weight.




See you tomorrow for more from 30 days to a happier, healthier me.

Weekend Walkabout, Howick, NZ




Welcome to Weekend Walkabout, a place to share and explore the different corners of our world.

It's amzing what you miss when you drive rather than walk around. Whitesnake and I were about the other week when we discovered this cute, little park. We drive past it all the time but last time I remeber,  it was a bus depot. Loving the new look.











Walkabout is a phrase we use in NZ, which means to walk around and explore with no specific destination in mind. Have you been walkabout anywhere interesting this week? If so, post your story or pictures to your blog, leave a comment here and a link to your blog on our Linky and Whitesnake or KB will come take a look.






Have a great weekend.
See you tomorrow for Microfiction Monday.
