Good morning and here it is another wonderful, warm Wednesday and you all know what that means it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Firstly I would like to thank everyone that has sent me emails making sure that I'm OK over here in New Zealand after the Earthquake that struck at 4.30am on Saturday morning registering 7.1. It was in the South Island in Christchurch and I'm situated in the upper North Island but thank you so much for your concerns, we are all fit and well.
My prayers are with all the people in Christchurch and the surrounding areas, there is just so much damage to properties, the infer structure, schools, businesses and sports complexes. We are just so lucky that it happened at 4.30am in the morning rather than midday on Friday when people were shopping having lunch or even on Friday night out to dinner with families and friends. One resturant owner said they had been completely full that night and that resturant has been flattened to the ground. So far their have been no fatalities and that is because of what time the quake struck. They are still having lots of aftershocks and the largest being 5.1 this morning.
Well enough of the bad news and lets look forward to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday
