Missed Blogs!

So my mom has told me that people are wondering why I did not post a blog the past 2 days, and the answer is simple, not much has happened. HA HA! On Tuesday I watched Sybilla and we went to the grocery store and bought the food for the week, but because it was raining we spent the rest of the day inside.
Yesterday, Wednesday, we ventured out into the storm and walked up to her jumping beans class. The class was fun for her and thankfully we were able to miss most of the rain due to good timing! Wednesday night last night Grant invited me over because they just got a new ping pong table and he wanted to hang out.
I came to the realization that I am not a natural ping pong player and that it is actually harder then it looks! I also tend to want to hit the ball with not only the paddle that is in my right hand but with my other hand too. For instance if the ball goes toward my left side instead of trying to hit it with the paddle that is in my right hand I will just naturally hit it with my left hand. Every time I did this Grant and his roommate would laugh at me and say that is not allowed!
Today Rebbecca got home at 630am so I only had to work till noon. I am not sure what I will do with the rest of the day as of now? Maybe some art? Maybe go out tonight? Not sure? Also soon I will be moving in with Grant so when ever I don't have to stay where I work and be a Nanny I will be living with Grant. It only makes sense since we are always together and it will cut down on all the extra driving.

Baby Sitting!

Today I watched Sybilla and we went for a walk to Grey Lynn Park. I ended up taking the really long way home and of course it started raining just to make it that much more difficult. We made it back just in time for lunch.

There was a great rainbow!

Sybilla wasn't that excited.

An Awesome night!!!!

Last night, Saturday, we all caught a cab to Albany where we drank and watched the rugby game. We got there around 9pm and I think around 1am they finally told us that they were no longer going to serve us because we were too drunk! They do that a lot here, come to find out that its not that you are necessarily too drunk but that if one person in your group is to drunk they won't serve any of you because they want you to leave. Don't worry I wasn't the person who was too drunk and I think it had more to do with us being too wild.

grant, matt, and mike

Alina and me

so after we got kicked out we went next door where they were happy to serve us hahahha and they had karaoke and if you watch the video you might see why they stopped serving us at the last place.

All in all we had a great time!!!!!!

A huge Storm!!!

Today I hung out with Grant at his house with all his roommates. There really wasn't much else to do because we are having a huge storm and I mean huge. I guess it is the biggest storm in the last ten years!

This is a picture out my car window while I was driving home. Tonight there is a big rugby game so we are all going out to watch the game and party!

Today I went for a walk, watched a movie, and painted. This is not the only thing that I painted I started a larger painting also but it is no where close to being done.

Free Time and Coffee!

Around 12 noon I walked down town to meet my friend Jasmine for coffee.

This is me walking! Free exercise!

Jasmine and I had a great time chatting about life!

After our first coffee and some shopping we stopped for a second coffee! What can I say they are small cups.

It turned out to be a great day!

I am trying to come up with something to post! Yesterday I had half the day off and because it rained on and off all day I decided to just stay home and watch a movie and knit and read. Sounds pretty boring and I guess that is why I didn't post anything about it. My days that I have off during the week are when I tend to get the most home sick, because I have loads of free time and really no one to hang out with because the handful of people I know all work during the day.

Today I have to find something to do even if it does rain because I can not bear to sit inside again, it makes me want to go crazy. Jasmine and I might meet up for coffee so that will take up part of the day, and other then that I might paint or at least go for a walk.

I did not take this picture but I am thinking of painting one of these. It is called a Koru and its some sort of fern and the image here is very popular.

A long day!

Today after Sybilla's short lived nap we took off to go grocery shopping at Pak n save ( you don't get bags with your groceries so it is slightly cheaper). We also went to the material store so I could make a skirt for the home made table in my room. Why I always decide to make things instead of buy them never makes sense.

Sybilla waking up from her nap!

My table I made and the skirt I sewed by hand (it took me at least 2 hours to sew it all!).

I also made dinner my mom's recipe of enchilada casserole but I had to make it slightly different because they don't really have a lot of Mexican ingredients here.

The weekend

This weekend was a lot of fun, Friday night I went to a small gathering at Grant's house where we drank and hung out. Then Saturday afternoon we went to Denny's just like the ones in America and I got an American cup of coffee and eggs and pancakes yum. While eating I spotted these cool looking birds that were running around outside. I thought they are very funny looking I must take a picture.

Saturday night we met up with Jasmine and some of her friends at the sky tower casino. I lost 15 dollars on the 2cent machines and that is really annoying! After the casino we went to Bar 3 which is a club in the sky tower.

This is a lame attempt at me trying to take a picture of the city while in a moving car.

and I had to put a picture of what I am wearing in because I need to show my mom that I am actually using the clothes and shoes that she sent me. I am also wearing the necklace Teresa got me, Thank you!

Just relaxing!

Today I drove to Davenport which is across the bridge. That is a cute small town where they have a few shops that I really like. I got a canvas for painting and a few other knick knacks. The rest of the day was spent working on a drawing and rearranging my room. My mom helped me via skype hahah it was like she was here!!!!

This is a picture of the view from the street we live on.

The Winter Gardens!

Today we went to the Winter Gardens. The gardens are next to the Auckland Museum, not quite as fun as the zoo but it was something to do. Plus the fact that it was much colder today and it rained on and off all day made it harder to have fun.

We still managed to get a few laughs in!

How cool is the Zoo!!!!

Today we drove to the ZOO!!!! The Auckland Zoo is only about a 10 minute drive from out house. After a small struggle to get the Stroller in the car we were off on our adventure!

The first thing we saw were the giraffes!

Then we saw the Elephants!

There were wild Chickens! Sybilla loved that!

I was fascinated by the Flamingos!

We stopped for a short rest out of the stroller.

Behind Sybilla is a thick glass wall and behind that there is a Lion! But of course it was hiding the whole time behind a tree!
