If you go back a few posts I talked about visiting The Two Oceans Aquarium in the Victoria Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town.
Well I am busy editing the photos, yes I know it’s been a while back but life is very busy on this end…
I came across these photos of the octopus and remembered how it moved along with my boyfriend. When he stood closer to the glass the Octopus also moved towards the glass. He then started moving his finger around against the glass the Octopus followed his finger with his one tentacle. It was very entertaining. When we moved on to the next exhibit we were talking about it and I am still wondering if it was a coincidence….
I don’t know why I thought that today will be any different than yesterday…
Took Armand to maths class this morning and when I got outside it is overcast and cold… Not sunny and warm as I imagined it would be…
But it is 1 September, spring is here. This month I have a lot going on and looking forward to a very busy September 2018.
Busy on working on my website giving it a spring clean and streamlining it. Been neglecting it for far too long. My aim is to launch it within the next two weeks…
It is Matric Farewell season and I have a very interesting shoot coming up next Friday. Must say I am very excited about it.
I am also planning a day out with my dad on 13 September. We are going to the Westcoast National Park. Every year since 2009 I went to the park at least twice a year to take photos. Then my parents and I started making a day of it in 2011. But since my mother passed away in 2015 I/we haven’t been to the park again. While busy working on my website I went through my photos and I got the urge to go to the park again. So I went to my dad and asked if he would join me for the day. The best of all we are going in Sanparks week that means entry to the park is free from 10 to 14 September 2018.
Well I am back…. It’s been quite a roller coaster ride for me since October 2015. But I am in a good place now.
Over the past few weeks I started editing photo’s of the last holiday my Mother went with us. Must admit I still get very emotional when I work on the photo’s. Miss her so much but I know she is watching over me every single day.
Here are just a few of the over 4000 photo’s I took on our trip to Pilanesberg Nature Reserve in July 2015. Believe me there is still allot on it’s way.
Yes Ruby is still in love with her sticks and upgraded to palm leaves. She enjoyed playing with the sticks and Palm leaves while my dad and I cleaned out our garden. She still enjoys playing with her ball but due to all the new dogs in our street I cannot go play with her out front. Now we must play in the garden and that is not so good on the grass. I also started taking her to the beach, but after a dog attacked her on one of our walks she is not very sociable. It will take a while for her to trust other dogs again… She is also very protective over me. I am not always sure if this is a good or bad thing….
After my mother’s passing and the start of my divorce proceedings I have not really been in the mood to blog and take photo’s. I had my moments when I got my spark back but then something would remind me of something that happened and I am back to square one. It was like everything was getting to much and I went into survival mode. I started focusing on myself, the boys, my dad and our home.
In the meanwhile my Canon 7D’s Dial button broke and I lost my AV and TV settings then the light sensor started giving me problems and that put extra stress on me… As soon as I move into a dark area or shady area the camera will not focus at all and when I press the shutter button nothing happend. I had to switch the camera off and on after every photo taken. When I was in bright light I had no problems… I had a few shoots over the past few months and with God’s help everything went smoothly. I learned a very big lesson that you must trust in God and ask Him to bless the shoot and to please make sure that everything works… He did not disappoint me… I am happy to say that God was looking out for me and a week ago I upgraded to my Canon 7D Mark II.
Over the next few weeks I will be posting all my work done in 2015 and hopefully I’ll be up to date soon.
Never lie to someone who trusts you, and never trust someone who lies to you.
This is something that lies very close to my heart. Being lied to by my so called best friend for how many years. I trusted her with my deepest secrets just to find out she had a hidden agenda and pretended to be my friend…
A happy life consists not in the absence but in the mastery of hardships.
This is very true. I have found in my own life I had two choices. I can either sit behind my knees and mope (I tried this for a while with not so good results) or I can take what is happening and use it to help me grow and move forward. I promise you this is not easy but it’s the best way. Yes you will get your up and downs, you’re happy and sad days, the days you wish you never met the people involved in your situation but remember there were good times also….
If we really want to love, we must learn how to forgive.
Good day everyone,
I know I have not been posting lately, but my life took a very unexpected turn. Now I must learn how to forgive and move on with my life. It is not easy but I know with the help of my Heavenly Father I’ll be able to move forward and live my life to the fullest in His name.
One of my New Year’s resolutions is to remove all the negative out of my life. I have been busy doing just that. May everybody have a very positive 2016.
“There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under my jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I read and eat and study. I can choose how I’m going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life – whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts.”
