Here and Now

Thank you to Helen who provided the inspiration for this post;-D

Outside my window:-  It is raining hard...and it is cold.  So happy to get rain at last, the Eastern Cape has been a drought disaster area now for months and my garden is slowly dying.

Thankful for:- The warmth of a home, my family and praying friends. 

Wearing:- Jeans, black jersey, black coat and red scarf...did I say it is blimming cold!

Noticing that:- I need a hair cut urgently. Which reminds me that I need a NEW hairdresser urgently.

Reading:- Kay Arthur's - Israel my Beloved. 

Thinking about:- What I should type...duh!

Pondering:- Let's not go there!
Around the house:- Bianca watching TV, workmen underneath the lapa putting in sliding doors to enclose it.
From the kitchen:- The aroma of hearty soup for tonight's supper.

Loving right now:-  Just being home...I love my home.  So wish I could be a housewife;-D

Creating:-  A mini album for Bianca's 21st birthday on the 26th of June.

Planning:- A surprise 50th birthday party at our home on Saturday evening for a very dear friend.  DH is doing a lamb on the spit.
Shooting:-  Random pics of my favourite grandchildren.  I am trying to catch the funny moments on camera.
 Trust little Lukas to find a use for a knitted tea cozy:-)
Little toes peeking through a hole.
Lukas bullying his most favourite person in the world.
The joy of three babies in a bath.
Somehow the rules changed over the years and jumping on Oupa and Ouma's bed is allowed.
 A tortoise is hijacked!
 Two silly babies having fun.
...and now blogger is playing havoc with my spacing!

  12. I thought you were a housewife of sorts? x

  13. @Jo - Housewife, how did you get that idea. No my friend...managing the finances of the Mission is a full time job and then there is counseling and the day-to-day happenings...caring for 560 people is no joke;-D

  14. The photos of your grandkids crack me up. I can't decide if I like the captive tortoise or the "escaping" toe best! ;)

  15. LOL, I wish we had tortoises in our backyard!

Thanks for the acknowledgement too...although really I pinched it from Stef...just juggled things around a bit!;-D
