The 17th issue of Weekend Roundup for this year...
- the Letter "Q" Prompts are:
(A) Starts with "Q"; (B) A Favorite; (C) Quarter; and (D) Reflection(s).
[coming through the hills and into Christ Church, NZ]
[I will always think of this church as Christchurch.
My grandmother was a Fletcher coming in to
New England right after the Mayflower. Here it
is the name of the reconstruction company]
[I call this Container Mall. Every business here operates
from one or more containers and is likely permanent now.]
(A) Starts with "Q": Quake starts with "Q". Like Quake and shake the earth in an Earthquake. These are some of the Christchurch, New Zealand, pictures we took. An Mw 6.2 earthquake occurred in Christchurch on 22 February 2011 (Wikipedia). In 2012-3 we visited by taking a Princess Cruise from Auckland New Zealand and around, then up to Tasmania, Australia and ended up in Sydney where we spent a few days. Quite nice Holiday for retired people.
(B) A Favorite: This is Mrs. Jim. She and KP were playing hide the Easter Eggs and it was Mrs. Jim's turn to find them. But in walking around the edge of the hot tub and trying to dodge the Hibiscus plant she fell in. They finished the hunt by picking up from the water all the plastic eggs that had fallen in there in the pool.
(C) Quarter: I have a stash of Quarters in one of the cup holders of my Mustang, the black one, pictured here.
(D) Reflection(s). Taken from across the table, back to the pool, facing the house. I had my camera ready this time for our little Sunday afternoon pool party. Karen's three and we attended. You can also see a nice reflection in the hot tub water above.
They brought most of the food, highlight and main entry was a wonderful Goat Cheese salad with broiled Artichoke hearts and Grilled Sausage Links. Yummy. We ended with the Cantaloupe with a pass-around Cocktail inside the skin. SIL cooked the artichoke and sausage. (Sorry, no food pictures.)

On my other blog I have been writing a "poem" for each day in April. Below is my "poem" (some may not be worthy of that name) for today.
_ _ _
Cousin to the Easter Bunny
I am a little Grey Rabbit
No dark rabbit hole for my home
Sleep in a large green padded box
Share it with a whole bunch of toys
Infused with kindness smile ingrained
From a grey sock red and white toed
Kind little lady imparted
with each needled stitch love portion
Not seeking greatness or riches
Hanging out with my toddler friend
I love him he drags me around
By my ear arm or leg he pulls
Some day I'll be outgrown cast off
Choose me next and you I will love
