If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would in fact be sipping some sparkling water with lime and lemon balm as it is so warm outside on the decking.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would briefly touch on the’ anti-vaxxer’ demonstration here in Wellington yesterday, but decide to move on and instead talk about the big news in the city today – Mittens the Cat is moving back to Auckland. The famous feline holds the key to the city, has had an exhibition about him and a book about his exploits in Wellington. We agree it is a sad day indeed for the city.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about the New Zealand International Film Festival. I say we are off to see our second film tomorrow, and you say you have a few things booked as well. We say how glad we are it is going ahead.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would tell you about my ‘haul’ from Commonsense Organics this morning. There were peas and broad beans, and of course asparagus, and also two of those expensive but lovely heirloom tomatoes. Oh there was also a jar of cinnamon spiced almond butter. You say it all looks so lovely and I say I love going vegetable shopping and you laugh.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would discuss Christmas and the summer ahead, and wonder if we will have to change plans thanks to you know what. We both sincerely hope we don’t have to alter anything.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would say why don’t you join us for dinner? There is one of my favourite salads from Peter Gordon’s Savour (grilled carrots, manchego, orange, pecan and sultanas) to have with sausages and broad beans. You say oh yes please! So we settle down to an evening of more conversation with a glass of red wine and good food.
Entered into this week’s coffee share hosted by Natalie the Explorer.
