Here and Now

That is no Joke
Outside my window:-  Sunny, windy about 18 degrees Celcuis.

Thankful for:- A 10 day holiday starting tomorrow...yes...WE ARE LEAVING ON A JET Cape Town tomorrow morning.

Wearing:- Jeans, red jersey and boots.

Noticing that:-  Other than a nagging back ache....the upside is that I am feeling relatively peaceful.

Reading:- Kay Arthur's - Israel my Beloved...yes still...can't seem to concentrate long enough to finish it, maybe during our break.

Thinking about:- Resting...I feel old, tired and decrepit.
Pondering:- Where has this year gone to?
Around the house:- Quiet...the way I like it.
From the kitchen:- The smell of a leg of lamb roasting...the children will all be coming for a "boerekos" supper tonight.
Loving right now:-  My new Volvo C30 that DH surprised me with on Saturday.  I now officially don't need to drive a people carrier anymore;-D

Stunning hey!
Creating:-  I started a mini album for Bianca for her 21st but somehow the inspiration for completing it had disappeared. I am using the Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage and a 6x12 artisan mini album for this project.  I will complete it after our holiday and post it here.

Planning:- Lovely things to do while in Cape hanging around Allie's deck for coffee and meeting as many of my Cape Town blog buddies as possible....and resting....and sleeping and recovering from all the trauma that this year had brought.  The best part is being with my favorite person (besides DH that is) my youngest sister, Ansie...yay!!!!
Shooting:-  Nothing...but am planning to do a lot of that while in Cape Town.
