Good day World: 18 January 2023

Well, I made it in one peace. Byers, Texas will be my base and home for the next nine weeks and three days.

Health

I have been feeling a bit under the weather since we landed. I have a strange headache; I am unsure how to describe it. It is not so bad that I need tablets, but it is irritating. My tummy is also throwing a hissy fit since Monday morning. I am afraid to eat any strange food, so I stick to bread and Skippy Peanut Butter for now.

Website and Writing

I have not posted since our flight. But I will tell you all about my flight experience in a separate post. Next week I will be joining Christo and will try to post at least every second day.

How is the weather today?

According to the weather forecast, it is going to be a reasonably cool Winters’s day. With a minimum temperature of 11°C and a maximum temperature of 19°C, winds up to 33 km/h.

We had a hot and humid day here in Cape Town, South Africa.

I am feeling much better today. Still have a headache that won’t go away. I think it may be due to the fact that I am flying to Texas in 4 days time.

It is a beautiful warm morning here in Cape Town, South Africa.

Health

Last night, Zandri brought me a one-day Flu remedy. It tastes like the fireball sweets we used to eat when we were young. I must admit I was skeptical at first, but it works. I had my first shot at 11:00 pm last night and this morning around 2:30 am again. I slept straight through till Oprah woke me up around 9:00 am. According to the directions, one is supposed to drink it every two hours for the first day. I had another shot around 9:30 am, nearly time for the next one.

Website and Writing

I am so behind on my Blogaunary posts I can’t think of anything to write. I want to try to write at least three today. But that will all depend on how I feel.

Now I am focusing on working on my website. You will see that some of the categories are still empty. I am working on it, and have 11000+ posts to sort through. I am also trying to post at least every day. Some of my post’s structures are also going to change. This will be phased in over the next few weeks.

Good day World: 6 January 2023

It is a beautiful cool and windy morning here in Cape Town, South Africa.

I was busy working on my website yesterday afternoon when I started coughing out of the blue. Not long afterward, I had a headache and did not feel too good. I switched off my laptop and let Christo know I am going to lie down for a while.

Last night it got worse, I had a fever, and to top it off, we had load shedding, and I could not switch on the fan. This morning I woke up, and it felt like a train ran me over. For the next few days, I will rest, drink plenty of fluids, and take cold medicine. I am leaving in seven days and I have to be healthy.

l had to get up to fetch Miriam on the farm at 7:00 AM. She told me that on New Year’s Eve, they broke into her house and stole all of her shop supplies, the children’s school supplies, their new clothes, and the food in their cupboards. It breaks my heart to hear that. In the past, I was in a position to help her financially, but now, I can only give her some of my clothes and the food in my cupboards.

It is a beautiful Windy day here in Cape Town, South Africa.

I worked on my website till 4:00 AM this morning. I am so excited about the new look my website will have.

2023 is going to be my year. A year full of new beginnings.

I am super stoked to start building my Landscape and Travel Portfolio. I would appreciate it if you have any suggestions on beautiful spots in Texas in the Byers area.

It is a beautiful morning here in Cape Town, South Africa.

I feel much better after I had a stomach bug for the past two days. I am still not 100% yet, but I am on my way.

Today I am missing Christo even more. I woke up during the night, and my heart was racing as if I had a big scare. The only thing I hate more than being apart from him is the time difference. I will continue with my “American routine” when I return from America.

Willow and Oprah

Willow and Oprah are doing good.

As you know, Willow has been diagnosed with Addison’s Disease and is on Cortisone tablets twice daily. She is very good at taking her pills, and if I run late, she will remind me as soon as I enter the kitchen. Her bladder muscles are still very weak, and she has had many “accidents” while sleeping. Otherwise, she is playing, barking, asking for treats as per usual.

Oprah, what can I say? She is a naughty pup, but she is so loving and loves attention and giving hugs. Willow stopped digging holes, and Oprah picked up where Willow had left it.

It has been a while since I posted a Good Day World post.

I hope everybody is still in good health and ready for 2023.

Somewhere I have picked up a tummy bug and have been making several bathroom visits since yesterday morning around 4:00 am.

Those of you who are following me will know that in 11 days, I will be flying to Texas to visit Christo for two months. I am ready to leave for the airport with only a few last bits and pieces to pack.

I look forward to exploring and capturing beautiful landscapes and doing some proper travel photography. I sent my tripod and external hard drives with Christo when he went home on Friday and the rest of my camera gear will go with me.

I am very grateful for technology. Without it, we won’t be able to video call and see and talk to each other even though we are 14264 kilometers apart. I am glad I needn’t wait three to four weeks for a letter through the post anymore. The second time around is so much easier with all the new apps.

New Beginnings

Good day everyone

Sorry for being so quiet. So much has happened since my last post.

December is a difficult month for me. As you all know Dad loved Christmas and everywhere I turn I am reminded of him. I put on a brave face but inside its a different story.

I have very exciting news though, I am going to America in January 2023.

Byers, Texas to be exact, and I am staying with someone very special to me. End of March 2023, I will be returning to South Africa and leave again the middle August 2023 for another three months.

Visa approved for 10 Years

I am very excited about this new chapter in my life. Feeling grateful and blessed. I never stopped believing that when two people are meant to be together they will end up together. No matter how many years go by. But more on this in a later post….

I still have a To-do list as long as an airport runway that needs to be done before I leave.

All different the different photography platforms and Apps have been installed on my laptop.

The photos for my flower book are backed up on an external hard drive. Although I won’t be able to edit it until I have sorted out my edit program. In the mean time I can still do my research and select the photos I want to use.

I had to set my camera settings to RAW and Jpg so that I can edit the jpg files so long for social media and my website.

It is going to be winter and the beginning of Spring in Texas when I am there. It makes packing easier.

Since I got my Visa I have been making lists and putting things in groups to be packed.

I am looking forward too this new beginning as a landscape and travel photographer and making myriads of new memories.

I will be back soon with some more updates on what is happening in my life….

Remember if you can dream it you can do it. Dreams do come true you must just keep believing…

Love

Coreen

Hello World: 20 September 2022

Good day, friends,

I hope that you are all still in good health and that you are all living your best life.

So much has happened in the past two months.

My brother and his family moved into their new house. I am so happy for them and wish them many years of making happy memories in their forever home.

Poplap our parakeet passed away. He was stil talking, singing and dancing on the Sunday evening. When I got to him on Monday morning, he was lying legs in the air at the bottom of his cage. I have no idea what happened.

Poplap October 2014 – 22 August 2022

We had to euthanize Ogies yesterday morning. Every year she gets hay fever around August to the end of September. This year she had it bad. She just recovered and then since Friday I noticed that she did not move around much. She would go outside to soak in the sun, she stayed outside for a long time then came inside and looked for the sun on her chair in my room. Sunday, she started losing her balance and it looked like she had no control over her legs. She just falls over. By the evening we had to hold her while she was eating. Ogies is Armand’s baby. He had to make the decision to rather relief her from the discomfort she was having. I know it must have been the hardest decision he ever had to make in his life till now.

We had a wonderful 17 with Ogies and she gave us a lot of beautiful memories and tons of love. When we were sick, she would come to lie with us and help us to get better. I will never forget how she would ask me to go make a fire in the fireplace. She loved it. She will sit and stare at the dead fireplace and then I will hear her scratching against the grid. That was my q that she is cold and need the fire to keep her warm and comfortable.

Ogies June 2005 – 19 September 2022

Armand, got a 100% bursary to study Cyber Security. He is working very hard, but loadshedding is busy making things difficult.

In the meantime, I had Pneumonia again and was very depressed about it. I spoke to a friend and he told me to stop feeling sorry for myself. My dad would not be happy if he sees me so down and not capturing the world and living my dream. Dad was my biggest supporter and when he said that to me it hit me hard. I started thinking of all the times dad encouraged me to go out there and capture the beauty and the not so beautiful around me. I got my act together and gave myself a date to go out. Does not matter if it rains or sun is shining, I will be going out to take photos.

I started going out into the field again from 1 September 2022. I am busy working on my Parks and Reserves project. I try to go out at least two mornings a week.

The weeks that I do not go out I sit in the garden and take photos of the birds and my new plants. I will post some of my garden photos also in the near future….

Anouk White, Lavandula Stoechas, My Garden, Kraaifontein, Western Cape, South Africa

I also started a new project. This project takes a lot of time. I have to do research and learn more about the subject but I enjoy it. I have had this project in mind since I started photography in 2009. The boys bought me a wildcard so that I can enter all the SANPARKS and Cape Nature Reserves for free. I also signed up at The Botanical Society as a member, now I can enter all the SANBI Botanical Gardens for free. Kistenbosch is number one on my list and now I will be going there more often and I also paid a little extra so that I can take in a guest as well.

Foemina Pimpernel, Lysimachia foemina, Durbanville Nature Reserve, Durbanville, Western Cape, South Africa

I might as well tell you all. I am busy working on a series of books. Not your normal flower identifying book. It is going to be very detailed and, in a language, the normal man on the street will understand. I have thousands of flower photos that I took since 2009 and now it is time to get them all identified. Well, those I have not yet done anyway.

I will be dedicating this series of books to my Father, Mother, my children and all the friends who encouraged me over the years. I also have a few of my followers here on WordPress that will be mentioned.

My photography student from years ago also moved back to Cape Town and she joins me on my expeditions when she is free.

I have also decided that from January 2023 I am going to start giving one on one workshops in photography. I had a few people in the past that I helped and then of course I had Lizette who came to me once a week for a photography class. She was my first proper student and I realized then that sitting in a room trying to teach photography does not work. I then moved our classes to the field and well it worked much better.

My leg is still not properly healed and I got a knock again when Willow and Oprah came charging down the passage and bumped me out of the way.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your support and for taking the time to look at my posts. I am truly grateful for every view, like, and comment I receive.

Hello World: 19 July 2022

Good day, friends,

I hope that you are all still in good health and that you are all living your best life.

I spent the last few weeks with my nephew Aran, my niece Morgan and Morné. In the past I have not really spent that much time with Aran and Morgan, but now that they have been living here for a few weeks I am getting to know them much better. Aran used to come visit Dad in the school holidays and Dad’s passing really hit him hard and he has become so mature.

Willow hates my brothers’ dogs and she is growling and barking at them the whole day. It is driving me a bit insane. Oprah is so cute and naughty at the same time. When Willow starts barking Oprah is looking for higher ground. That normally means on my chest or on my shoulders. She is getting big now.

Oprah took over the duties of digging up the grass, while Willow supervising from a distance…

Willow also likes to sleep under the duvet now…
Willow sleeping on ottoman with her head on my leg. I love her so much.
Yes, higher ground. Willow started barking in the kitchen…

The new medication I am on is working very well. I still get my days but that is understandable.

According to the weather forecast, we are having a lovely cold Winter’s Day. With a minimum temperature of 8°C, a maximum temperature of 15°C and winds up to 20 km/h.

Hello World: 1 July 2022

Good day, friends,

I hope that you are all in good health. Over the last few weeks, I have been a very busy bee.

My brother and his family are moving into the flat for a month, while they wait to move into their new house. I was busy sorting out Dad’s things and getting the flat ready for them to move in.

During all this I had a cold, two very hyper dogs making sure my house is a mess all the time. I must say that when the boys were small my house never looked like it does now. These two four legged children of mine surely know how to keep me busy.

We also have loadshedding at least 3 times a day now. We are at stage 4 at the moment and according to the App we are moving to stage 6 tonight.

I got up early this morning so that I could do my brother’s laundry before loadshedding.

From today on I will be trying to get back into posting on my blog. I have so much editing to do and I will have to use the time between loadshedding for that and do the cleaning and home tasks during loadshedding.

According to the weather forecast, we are having a lovely cold Winter’s Day. With a minimum temperature of 15°C, a maximum temperature of 22°C and winds up to 30 km/h.

I hope that you are all in good health.

It has been raining since Sunday evening till this morning. Everything is wet and the house is damp due to Willow and Oprah running around on the wet grass and Willow playing in the rain. But now the sun is shining and I hope that it will help.

We took Willow and Oprah to the Vet this morning. Both girls are in good health and the doctor is pleased with them. I spoke about Willow’s aggression towards men and the Vet said that she is just protecting me. Then she saw with her own eyes how aggressive Willow gets with men entering a room with me in it.

I will try my best to edit today, but Oprah wants to cuddle the whole time. She is getting big now.

Good morning, friends,

I hope that you are all in good health.

It has been raining nonstop since Sunday evening. All my water containers are filled and the tank inside started overflowing. My braai room is very wet and we won’t even talk about Oprah and Willow.

Willow loves water and every now and then I find her outside playing in the rain. Oprah hates the rain. As soon as she feels the drops on her she runs inside as if something is chasing her. I hope she will outgrow this fear of the rain.

Today I am going to start the fire in the fireplace early. Maybe I can heat up the room enough to keep the floors dry. The house is so damp now due to Willow playing outside and coming in dripping water everywhere.

Hello World: 9 June 2022

Good morning, friends,

I hope that you are all in good health.

I am happy to report that I did go t Sonstraal Dam yesterday. I only took 25 photos of trees…. There was smoke everywhere and well it did not really look that pretty. But the trees looked stunning and I took a few photos handheld. Next week I am going with my tripod, shutter release cable and different lenses to capture it for my portfolio.

I went to bed around 10:45pm last night and woke up this morning at 7:30am. I had a very good night’s rest and I am ready for today….

On my To-Do list for today

  • Schedule photos
  • Edit
  • Start Planning next week shoots

According to the weather forecast, we are having a lovely cool and sunny Winter’s Day. With a minimum temperature of 10°C, a maximum temperature of 18°C and winds up to 15 km/h.

Hello World: 8 June 2022

Good morning, friends,

I hope that you are all in good health.

Well, it is safe to say that I did nothing on my To-Do list of yesterday 🤦🏻‍♀️.

These days this is not uncommon. I feel fantastic when I wake up around 8am. Then I do a few chores and eat breakfast and drink my medication at 9am. Then an hour or so later all my plans for the day go out of the window. I am so tired I can’t keep my eyes open. Then I go to bed and sleep for 1 to 3 hours. After my nap I have enough energy to prepare dinner and keep me awake till bed time these days, that is between 8pm and 9pm.

  • Go to Sonstraal Dam for sunset shoot

It seems like our Winter is warmer than Autumn this year. I do hope we get enough rain this year to refill our dams for summer.

According to the weather forecast, we are having a lovely sunny Winter’s Day. With a minimum temperature of 13°C, a maximum temperature of 26°C and winds up to 17 km/h.

Hello World: 7 June 2022

Good morning, friends,

I hope that you are all in good health.

I have been very busy relaxing and cleaning these past few days. I even worked in my garden. I forgot how de-stressing it can be.

Yesterday evening I decided that tonight I want to go to Botterblom Nature Reserve and see how it looks at Sunset. The best thing about it all is that it won’t be too cold so I don’t need a lot of layers of clothes.

Hello World: 3 June 2022

Good morning, friends,

Well, I went to bed at 11:00pm last night and I only fell asleep around 3:00am this morning.

I got up at 7:00am this morning and have a lot to do today. I must fit in some editing and start planning my photoshoots for July also.

I started with the laundry. The sweeping of the house is an endless task with Willow and Oprah. Mud paws, sticks and sand everywhere in the house….. I think they are trying to bring the outside indoors….

According to the weather forecast, we are having a lovely cold but sunny Winter’s Day. With a minimum temperature of 8°C, a maximum temperature of 20°C and winds up to 10 km/h.

Hello World: 2 June 2022

Good morning, friends,

Well, I went to bed at 11:00pm last night and I woke up at 7:40am this morning. That is what I call a very good night’s rest. Oprah did wake me up at around 4:00am to go outside but I was too late and she did not make it outside. My bad. She woke me up at 7:40am this time we made it. She is learning really fast.

Willow and Oprah love each other a lot, and Oprah doesn’t want to go to the flat anymore with her human dad. She wants to be near Willow all the time. Willow is also very calm these days. Yes, the two of them love digging holes together, but I have made peace with it. It is only grass…..

Hello World: 1 June 2022

Good morning, friends,

I only got to bed around 2:00am this morning. I binge watched Bridgeton’s and just could not stop until the last episode. I am on a stronger antidepressant from yesterday and it made me feel nauseous. I went to bed yesterday afternoon and slept a good two and a half hours. That is why I was not tired last night.

Today is the first day of Winter, and I am freezing. But I am grateful for warm clothes and the sun shining through my window. I will be sitting in the sun later reading my book and learning all about the Greatest Secret.

Hello World: 31 May 2022

Good morning, friends,

I hope everyone is doing great and had a good night’s rest.

Yesterday, I went to buy wood for the fireplace and they were closed. I went online and ordered wood for delivery. They are very busy and I can only expect wood by next week, but if I am lucky, I will get it before the weekend. So please keep your fingers crossed.

Hello World: 30 May 2022

Good morning, friends,

I hope everyone is doing great and had an awesome weekend.

I had a very busy and relaxing weekend. On Saturday, Morné and I cleaned out the one cupboard in the garage. It was raining cats and dogs on Saturday and Sunday morning. On Sunday, I took it very easy. I watched YouTube videos and traveled through Scotland and took photos in the woodlands of England.

I made a decision a while back that I won’t switch my computer on over weekends. I need to do something different on weekends, and it has been working so far. I do get myself walking to my office to go and sit in front of computer and edit, but then I get something else to do. Work in the garden, watch videos, movies, series or read a book.
