Truth Universally Acknowledged

The title of this blog is an obvious reference to my favourite author, Jane Austen. My other great inspiration is Ella Fitzgerald. I intend this site to be general musings about things which interest me, and hopefully you as well.

Location: Auckland, New Zealand

I'm a girl in her twenties living in New Zealand - of Irish and Scottish descent. I'm married to a wonderful guy and we live in a tiny house in the suburbs with a menagerie of soft toys and model aircraft. My main occupations at the moment are attempting to become and author and surviving my day job... wish me luck!

A Pink Visitor

Today I looked outside and to my surprise, there on the doorstep was a pink leaf. It was very pretty, but it had me thinking one thing: Autumn. I looked over to the fence which is covered by the plant which spawns these leaves, and spotted several with a reddish tinge. How can this be? The days have been so hot and humid lately. I suppose the odd cooler night must have crept in. I have plans which mean that it must stay hot until the end of March. However, March is officially the beginning of Autumn, and I see that Nature has realised this and is getting a head start for tomorrow. *sigh* I had hoped that as Summer didn't even start until mid-January, it would extend itself a month or two. Another ominous sign is that I've had to put my slippers on today for the first time this year. Here's hoping it will stick around for a few weeks longer, with or without pink leaves.
