Did I tell you I saw a penguin? Really truly saw a penguin swimming along the Wellington waterfront area. It was a blue penguin I am told. It was extremely cute. I kind of loved it.
We have been doing lots of fun exploring and it has been really nice.
Except, for one thing on me. I have the continuing ongoing pain that my back refuses to love me. I am doing my best being brave, but I have to say it isn't doing great. It's really hard to have this unfortunate nagging injury that complains every time I sit, stand, walk, or whatever. The best is when I can distract myself with something. Then I forget for a little bit.
Sorry, I am a complaining girl in the amazing land of warmth and beauty. I am loving the land and the experience. Just not so much the part of me that is hurt.
I also need to appreciate all the non-hurting parts much more than I have. And as soon as my back feels better, I think I will start a daily thank you to it. So, it is kind of a bitter sweet time right now, but mostly lovely.
Happy day you guys. Make sure to say thank you to your back and your arms and your legs if they are not hurting. Maybe your teeth too. And your head.
