Try it on my own…

Technically, it’s not autumn yet in the Southern Hemisphere. The Spring Equinox is on the 21st of March when the sun is directly above the Equator and it will be the season of spring in the countries in the Northern Hemisphere. This, of course, means that the days will be getting colder in the south in countries like New Zealand…and Wellington will be as windy as ever…

Gales are pretty common in that country and it would be best to stay indoors a lot more to stay out of the cold and the rain.

I suppose my daughter will have to fill up her fridge to stock up on her food in case she may not be able to go out to get her supplies. As far as cooking is concerned, I am positive that she has tried it on her own and is doing very well indeed. Over the weekend, she cooked this beef stew to go with her rice…

Now, don’t you think that looks really yummy?

As the lyrics of the song go:
I’m wiser now
I’m not the foolish girl you used to know
So long ago
I’m stronger now
I’ve learned from my mistakes which way to go
And I should know
I put myself aside to do it in your way
But now I need to do it all alone

And I am not afraid to try it on my own
I don’t care if I’m right or wrong
I’ll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I’ll keep it real
You know
Time for me to do it on my own…

I never had the chance to do things my way
So now it’s time for me to take control…

…It’s time for me to
Finally stand alone
Stand alone.

Thumbs up, girl! You make Daddy real proud, you really do!
