Seeing kiwis is rare. We were walking to our hotel in Paihia after a long day of touring and a late dinner out for the trip, and my husband spotted one. I managed to get my camera out and turn on the flash in time to capture its body in the edge of the frame.


We took this sighting as a good omen. I wanted it to share it with you, so the cute little kiwi could be a good omen for you as well.

Happy Halloween and here’s to a wonderful November. For many writers, including me, November is novel writing month. November has a nice holiday in it for Americans. It’s summer in Australia, even as the snow is starting to fly here in the California Sierras. So whatever November means to you, may it be filled with peace, good food, and achievements in whatever realm is important to you.

  1. Not quite summer, but certainly starting to feel like it. We are very literal with our seasons, so summer starts on the first of December, but we have been getting lots of days that are letting us know it is coming.

      1. It does get confusing, and I know some places have official dates for the starts of seasons, but we run by the calendar months, maybe that means we are unimaginative? LOL
