What was on My Wishlist for Christmas?

This year I only wanted books for Christmas. Inspirational as well as books that will help me to identify plants, trees, birds, insects, mushrooms and much more…

I love books that inspire me and help me to become a better person. I am so glad Father Christmas got my letter…

Yesterday I covered all my books in plastic so that they are protected. I also started reading The Power. Feeling inspired already.

My collection of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne is nearly finished. Just need Hero and her newest The Greatest Secret.

It is my birthday next month, maybe I will get lucky and can complete my collection.

The day after Christmas:26 December 2020

Good day friends,

This morning I was drinking my coffee and, doing some light reading when a thought popped into my head to go to the beach today. Not long after Mornè asked me what are we going to do today. I told him maybe we must go to Yzerfontein for the day.

He then said the beaches are closed. I googled and saw the beaches was open here in the Western Cape. So we headed to Tableview and walked all the way to Blaauwberg.

We walked 8.12 km this morning. After our walk we went to lunch and ended our day with a nice ice-cream.

Today I left my camera at home. So I took a few photos with my Huawei P30 lite.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year….

Good morning friends,

I woke up this morning with a song in my heart, my head and I feel happy maybe even excited about Christmas….. It must be all the Christmas movies, the Christmas songs playing and all the Christmas decorations in Dad’s home. I have been humming It’s the most wonderful time of the year the whole morning.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you be of good cheer
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

It’s the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It’s the hap-happiest season of all.

There’ll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There’ll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
Christmases long, long ago.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be much mistltoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When loved ones are near
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

There’ll be parties for hosting

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be much mistel-toeing
And hearts will be glowing
When loved ones are near
It’s the most wonderful time
Yes the most wonderful time
Oh the most wonderful time
Of the year

Relaxing in the garden…

Good day friends,

Today was a scorcher. It is nice outside now. The house is warm inside. Only a light breeze is blowing.

I am very happy with my garden. Still keep making small changes here and there. The grass is coming along nicely. I hope by the end of summer the grass will cover all the ground.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting our garden.

Two Dragonflies….

We are sitting outside talking when something strange caught my eye. At first I thought it was a leaf but leaves don’t go and sit on mesh wire.

I went closer to investigate and to my surprise it was 2 Dragonflies mating. I grabbed my phone and captured the moment.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Good morning everyone,

I would like to take this opportunity to say Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends from the US.

Here in South Africa we do not celebrate Thanksgiving. I think it is very important to give thanks for all the opportunities and gifts we receive on a daily basis. Be Thankful everyday of the year, without the feast of course. Otherwise we will all roll down the streets….

Happy Thanksgiving have a wonderful day.

Sunday Walk: 22 November 2020

Good day,

Today we decided to drive to Table View and walk on the beach. We try to go out for a walk somewhere once a month. Today it was the beach.

I did take my camera with and halfway through the walk my lens started giving me problems. It’s like it is trying to focus but it runs and runs. As soon as I zoom a bit it has no problem.

When we got home I cleaned my lens and cameras contact points. Still doing it when I try to focus on something far without zooming in. Now I have to find someone to service my lens and not ask me a arm and a leg.

Friday night by the firepit.

I am so glad the evenings are getting warmer and we can enjoy sitting outside.

We usually braai on a Friday evening. In winter we do it in the fireplace. This doubles as heat for the cold evenings.Now we can do it outside at the firepit, that is if the wind permits it.

Tonight is a beautiful evening outside after a very hot day.

Fighting a losing battle…

Hi there,

I am having trouble studying today.

First I tried studying using my computer monitor, but keep losing my place or just losing interest. I realy tried going paperless with my studies but I am not coping at all. I need to make notes, underline important facts so that I can remember them.

I ended up printing my module. It went okay for a while till all the formulas and number talks and there they lost me again.

Normally I start early in the morning around 7:00am, but today I only started around 11:30am maybe this is why I can’t concentrate.

Now I am writing a blog so that I don’t have to read about pixels per inch and, screen resolution and how to calculate it.

Okay I have waisted enough time. Going to meditate for 7 minutes just to recharge and then start from scratch again….

My way of studying. Printed module and electronic version.
