Te Atatu, West Auckland

About Te Atatu:

Te Atatū is the name of the two neighbouring suburbs of western Auckland, New Zealand, the Te Atatū Peninsula and Te Atatū South, which are located about 10 kilometres west of the centre of Auckland and are separated by the Northwest Motorway.

History

The European settlement started between 1853 and 1873 when Thomas Henderson bought land from Ngati Whatua and the Crown in 1855. The Henderson Timber Mill was built in what is now known as Henderson.

The area was known as Henderson Point until 1907 when it was renamed Te Atatu by Reverend Jackson Bennett, which literally means dawn.

Education

Rutherford College is a local state secondary school in the Te Atatū Peninsula. It's named after New Zealand-born nuclear physicist and chemist Lord Ernest Rutherford.

Henderson High School, ACG Sunderland School and College, Liston College, and St Dominic's College are other secondary schools serving the Te Atatū Peninsula.

5월 보름달은 flower moon이라는 이름을 가졌다.
Super red moon.
날씨도 오랫만에 보름달을 볼수 있도록 허락했다.
기쁜 마음으로
행복한 마음으로
보름달을 즐겨보았다.
망원렌즈는 병원에 보낸 채...
새로 구입한 90mm macro 렌즈로
보름달을 만나보았다.
크게는 찍지 못했지만
저 달도 마음에 든다.

Meet Matt, our Mr. May Refill Pinup, and Lola! 👑🐶.
🌱 I refill because… 
It’s clean, it's mean, and if it ain’t sustainable… it ain’t worth it! As consumers, I think we should all be making more environmentally-friendly decisions, as there’s power in what we pay for. We vote with our wallets! I don’t like collecting nasty non-recyclables when I shop, and Refill Nation helps me get around this. The cool staff keep the place tickety boo and always brighten your day too!
.
💡 My best waste-free discovery… 
Glass jars. Since shopping at Refill Nation, I now use glass jars for so much more than before. They're airtight, recyclable, and can be used again and again. This is another great opportunity to ditch nasty single-use plastics.
.
🍫 My fave Refill Nation snack… 
Has to be the roasted almonds! Immensely moreish and equally healthy. For Lola (aka “the furry bullet”), the dried liver snacks are her favourite, but, she still plans on tasting the remaining dog snacks on offer.
.
🤔 At first I thought eco-living was… 
Whalesong, Tie-Dye t-shirts, world music, and dreadlocks.
.
🌼 But now I know… 
Being sustainable is about making a conscious effort to look after the planet with what you buy, what you use, and how you live.

This week in my new space has been an absolute vibe! What an honor it is to provide the time and space for productive rest.
.
Remember that term- productive rest. Its not just receiving a massage, it's anything you like to do that turns down the internal noise and gives you the opportunity to gain clarity and perspective over your thoughts and feelings.
.
Prioritizing time for productive rest will help you show up as a better you. Your future self/ health will thank you for it.
