 What's been happening to our fabulous familiar world we all love and live in together since I last spoke!. Hummm. Are you still alittle scared to be normal again?. You wish it would start feeling like it's all behind us now!. Let's just take that one step and make it happen. Let's walk forward and push on with a smile. That easy and quick action, across to your neighbor, might be all we need to feel normal again.

When the Shoppers go Wild

Excuse me human...

It's ok..nothing to see here!( well, actually, this 'Shag' is blind!)..he's just one of the locals doing his daily visit, to his favourite fish & chip shop, in Mangonui, New Zealand.

Just a short walk from the wharf, with no roads to cross (thank goodness).

So.. why not, there's free tasty treats await.

Laugh it Off

Hi There Folks

This is a very good likeness of me laughing, at the very point I accidentally delete my blog entry, you know the one, the very first one back on the blog scene since 2017 and it's gone.

Just like that and it's gone forever.

Tad disappointed with myself but what can I do about it now.!

Move on, thats what...

Feeling Grateful

Hi there,
It's me again.

Trina... remember me?

I've been thinking,...why, why did I become a blogger?
It was about sharing my journey, the struggle I have about spelling!, having a tutor every Thursday for two years in my adult life, someone to teach me how to read & write.

I'm happy to report back and tell you, that I am very proud of myself actually, feeling quite chuffed at having the confidence now, not feeling so embarrassed, about making silly mistakes, this doesn't shame me out any more, like it use to.

My G+ family have become such an important part of my life now. I need to tell you all, I am so very grateful. My blog may have changed it's path a little, but the theory in the idea is still very much a progress to open myself up to you and help me over come my fear of failing.

 This page so far has taken me over two hours and is full of nothing, but simply highlighting the work I need to do, to just get this down into words you can read. So blogging was one way, every week, with a lovely, very patient lady, helping me do simple tasks that any kid finds easy and yes, I'm still learning the tasks and will always stay with me, bad habits are hard to break. But here I am, been brave in front of you all to see.

Keep smiling, things will work out in the end :)

Great night for a Swim

They say the weather is going to get rough in the next few days, rain ☔ and thunderstorms are scheduled early in the week, but it's looking great for now, so let's go enjoy the calm before the storm.
Autumn evenings are so peaceful.

People are out and about, soaking up the last bit of heat left in the day, before the sun goes down in my town.

Hope your evening is a restful one.

Let's Start the Day with a Smile

Wouldn't it be great to start our day this way, every day!, if only the weather would be this kind more often, I think I would climb this hill ...almost every day!, leaves' you feeling, what a fabulous start. As the sun is waking us up in such a peaceful way, it makes you have faith, nothing would go wrong.

When the skies are so calm and the water below moves softly across the shoreline, you can't help but feel lucky, lucky enough to simply sit, breath and smile. Life is what you make it, so go live it your way.

Rocks Can Be Fun Too

You know how I said, 'I'm so busy lately'.

I've find something really easy that's relaxing me, check it out...

Weekends can be a great time to relax after a long working week, but what's there to do, that's fun, cheap, and isn't going to wear you out doing it. 
This is what I found on that love/hate thingy called 'Facebook'...(come on, don't judge me, you play on there too, I know.:)

It's all about painting Rocks!

Pretty when coloured in dots

Look at what's been posted up on our group site.
Some new rocks ready to be hidden in the area. Cool.

My Grandson loves his new find. A strawberry rock!.
These are pretty too, great idea people have
painting dots, looks easy. 
Have you ever played Geocaching?.
 Its a hide-in-seek game, that's played all over the world, but here is a new, well it's new to me!. Hide-in-seek little rocks!, that's right, rocks. Hidden all around my home town. Paint away to your heart's content. That's all there is to it. If you know someone on facebook!, get them to take a photo of your beautiful creation and tell everyone roughly where you placed it, so some lucky person can find it. Careful not to put it in a place that will damage plant life or nothing else around it.
  It's all about making someone's day brighter, finding a beautiful master piece. 
Vanish it, so the weather will be kind to it and wait for someone to find it.
 There is a group started here in my home town, called 'Tauranga Rocks', maybe you can start up a group in yours, simply put your groups name on the back of your rock, start to track where they move on to. It's fun for the whole family. Something for the kids and parents to do together on the weekends, who doesn't want to paint a rock!
