Good Morning: 25 March 2021

Good morning everyone,

Hope you had a good nights rest. I slept like a log. Woke up once due to Buddy bumping into the bed.

It is going to be another scorcher today. 32°C with a gentle breeze in the morning and picking up by midday.

I watered the garden this morning and saw the Rosemary is flowering. On Monday there was just 1 little flower peeking out….

Good Morning: 7 Maart 2021

Good morning friends,

How are things on your end? Hope you are all feeling fantastic and are enjoying your weekend.

I had another rough night with Buddy.  I overslept this morning and only woke up around 8:50am. Dad is supposed to have his breakfast at 9:00am.

Just now I saw that yesterday’s Good Morning post did not publish. This has been happening a lot these days. I normally do it from my phone. So I posted it just now.

It is a lovely day in the garden. It is only going to be 20°C with wind.

I am sitting in the garden playing with my 70-300mm lens. I never use it but this morning I decided to take it for a spin again. I am shooting with my remote today.

Today I am taking it easy. Relaxing, taking photos and reading….

I hope you are having a great weekend so far.

🤗Big Virtual Hug.


Good Morning: 28 February 2021

Good morning friends,

It is a beautiful morning in the garden. It is already hot outside.

According to the weather forecast we are going to have another scorcher today 39°C.

I just watered the plants to help them cope with the heat of today. Will have to give them some water tonight again when it cools down.

Tomorrow is supposed to be the start of Autumn. But summer came very late this year. Normally the high thirties was in December/January.

Today we are making pickled onions.

We try to do something in the kitchen at least once a month. Sometimes we even surprise ourselves and do it every second Sunday.

Have a wonderful day.

🤗Big virtual hug.

Good Morning everyone

I woke up this morning tired, gave Ogies food and got back into bed. I fell asleep straight away. A hour later I woke up refreshed. I guess I needed a nap🤷🏻‍♀️

It’s a lovely cool morning in the garden, only a light breeze. According to the weather forecast we are having a warm day around 27°C and the wind is going to pick up during the day.

When I went outside to feed the birds Shadow was waiting for me. I don’t know what we are going to do when winter comes. We can’t sit outside then, but I know we will adjust our routine accordingly.

Shadow waiting patiently.

On my To-Do List for today:

  1. Wait patiently for my package from Takealot.
  2. Read a chapter for my G. L. P post for today.
  3. Edit
  4. Schedule some of my posts for next week, because I have to study and do my assignments.

What are you doing today?

Thank you for your ongoing support and taking the time to look at my post.

Have a fabulous Friday.


Good Morning: 9 February 2021

Good Morning friends,

Did you have a good nights rest?

For those of you only ending your day now. Did you have a good day?

I slept like a log. Only woke up once during the night. That is a record for me.

It is a beautiful windy and cool morning in the garden. According to the weather forecast it is going to be around 28°C today.


I did my Bible study inside today. The wind did not play along. Today’s message was very clear. I have to look after myself, I only get one body. This is exactly what I am currently doing. I had my wake up call last week, when I saw the worry on my doctor’s face.

On my To-Do List for today:

  • Edit our Grand Tour of Scotland 2019 photos. I still have so much to do.
  • Write a few posts on some of the towns we visited in Scotland.
  • Cook a delicious dinner.
  • Water the garden with my watering can.
  • Read
Strawberry plants growing like there is no tomorrow.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my post.

Have a fabulous day filled with joy and great adventures.

For those of you who are going to bed soon. Have a peaceful nights rest.


Summer in the garden…

The heat and wind are killing my garden.

With the price we pay for water I cannot maintain our grass and it is turning yellow. I feel like crying. Up to a month ago the grass was still green and soft. Now it look like it is going to die…

We try to save water wherever we can so that I can at least water the garden properly once a week. But with the scorching days and the warm wind that is not enough.

If anybody have some advice, how I can save our grass I would love to hear from you.

Thank you for your ongoing support and taking the time to look at my post.
