Morning Greetings: 4 August 2021

Good morning everybody,

Hope you all had a good nights rest and that you are ready for this beautiful Wednesday.

Yesterday I took dad for his second vaccination, he told the nurse that I am taking care of him and that I have registered but is still waiting on a SMS to get my vaccination. He told her that my sister in law and brother both got theirs and he think it is important that I get mine because I look after him daily. The nurse said she will be back with an answer. After about 15 minutes she called me to the counter and asked for my ID and Medical Aid Card. I got my vaccination and if all goes well I will get my second one around 20 September 2021.

The only side effect I have is the soreness around the injection site. I feel blessed and truly grateful that I got my first vaccination. Ha Ha Ha😂 I am going to the nearest supermarket and I am going to ask to scan me….

According to the weather forecast we are having a lovely day. A maximum temperature of 18°C is predicted.

On my To-Do List for today:

  • Take Willow for a drive to and a walk around Sonstraaldam
  • Edit
  • Gaelic Lesson 2 hours
  • Prepare dinner

With all my heart, thank you for your ongoing support and taking the time to read my post. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow, and comment I receive.

May you have a day filled with laughter and love.

Changing the way we think: 4 August 2021

Changing the way we think one thought at a time…

All of us have negative thoughts, and these negative thoughts are holding us back. Let’s try to live a more positive life by changing the way we think.

As soon as you think….

“I can’t do it.”

Change your way of thinking to….

“I can do whatever I put my mind to.”

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by. Thank you for your continued support. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow and comment.

Stay safe and think positive thoughts.

Have a Blessed day.

A few changes….

Hi there friends,

I have changed my routine a bit. In the morning, I wake up, make coffee and relax for a few minutes. During the day, I edit, write or schedule posts and do my chores in and around the house. If I feel like sweeping – I sweep, I feel like editing – I edit. If I want to play in the garden with Willow, I do it. You get the picture?

Willow is also taking up much more time these days, and I try to take her on walks when the weather is good. She gets bored easily. Things will get easier when it is a bit warmer and we can go for more frequent walk.

I only watch about an hour of TV now. I get so frustrated with all the programs I have been watching still hammering on the Black lives Matter campaign. In my eyes, all lives matter! To dedicate one or two episodes to it is still fine but more than that is overkill. Also Covid 19, yes people I know about it, I am living with it since March 2020, I do not need to be reminded about it every time I want to watch a program. Why not bring us some joy?

I do my Gaelic lessons in the evening after dinner. Before bed, I read my book, and I try to keep technology to a minimum.

Life is too short. Over the past few weeks, I have realized it over and over again. I told myself I need a change but never got to do it.

Not only did things change in my daily life, but I also made some changes to my blog.

I moved two of my daily posts to only one post a week. What’s in my garden will be posted on Thursdays, and For the love of Music will be posted on Fridays. Willow Shenanigans has also moved to Fridays.

Fauna and Flora Friday, Saturday Landscapes, Caturday, Sunday portraits, and Silent Sunday falls away for now. I will incorporate all these photos into the Just a random photo and Wordless Wednesday posts. When I have extra time I will post something in-between.

As you all know I am also busy with my Advanced module in Landscape and Travel photography. I still need to practice a lot and learn how to plan my photos. This is why I made some changes to my blog. Making my workload a bit less and giving me more free time to plan and practice and capture photos for my assignment. I have to submit my assignment by 20 December 2021, and I have to submit 19 photos.

Morning Greetings: 3 August 2021

Good morning everybody,

Hope you all had a good nights rest. I slept like a log. Only woke up once during the night.

Today is the first day in 4 weeks that my home is quiet and I can relax and go on with my day.

Dad is going for his second vaccination today and we are going to see if I can get mine too as a walk in. I did register but I am just afraid the schedule mine in the week that we are not here.

According to the weather forecast we are having a lovely Winters day. A maximum temperature of 20°C is predicted.

On my To-Do List for today:

  • Edit
  • Take Dad for Vaccination
  • Prepare dinner

With all my heart, thank you for your ongoing support and taking the time to read my post. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow, and comment I receive.

May you have a day filled with laughter and love.
