Stylish Electric Cars


More stylish than a Prius.

We checked out these very cool vintage cars at the recent Kapiti Sustainable Home and Garden Show.
Salem loves vintage cars and it didn't take him long to find these beauties.


Check out the batteries!!!!


As you can see, electric cars are not a new idea.


Imagine driving this home.


I think this next car was a hydrogen powered car.  Or it could have been another electric one.
I can't remember, it was a very hot afternoon.




Both these cars are in working order.
Much more stylish than the modern hybrid and electric cars.

Autumn is Finally Here!!!!




After a long, hot and very dry Summer, Autumn has finally arrived.
The leaves are finally changing colour and falling to the ground.

We love Autumn!!!!!!!!




And what is more fun than playing in all the leaves.
We couldn't resist when we found this large mass of leaves on our walk home after dance classes.




The temperature has dropped a lot over the last few days but we still haven't had any rain, just two days in the last week or so that had about 5 to 10 minutes of a very light drizzle.
Nothing to break the drought.....yet......

Playing in the Autumn Leaves


It's nice to be able to layer on the clothes and to wrap up warm in one of the many blankets that we have made over the years.
In the evening, when the boys have gone off to bed, I snuggle up on the couch wrapped up in a blanket to watch a bit of telly, with Sugar, our big fat white cat curled up next to me on the blanket and Misty, our clueless black cat purring away sitting on my knee.
What could be better...........
