First attempt making cabbage stew

For a while now I was crawing cabbage stew, but had no clue in how to make it or so I told myself.

Mom used to make it and I think I was afraid mine would not be as delicious as hers was. Over the weekend I decided to give it a go and see if I could do my mom proud.

I bought all the ingredients and yesterday I made my first pot of Cabbage stew. I got the recipe out of a Cookbook my mom gave to me when I started cooking in Highschool.

It came out delicious and dad asked me if he could have a bowl of cabbage stew for lunch.

I still wanted to freeze some for another day, but I could only freeze one meal for dad for that days that I can’t cook to make sure he has a hearty meal.

Wet second day of spring…

It’s raining cats and dogs outside on this lazy Sunday afternoon.

I wanted to work on my website, but my boyfriend and I decided to take it easy today. Need to rest up for the busy week ahead.

It’s been a while…..

Good day everyone,

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.

Photo’s taken in 2015 in my garden…. Part 3

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….

Every year I have visitors in my garden. This little Masked Weaver build a total of 3 nests with no success…. Maybe he will be more successful in the coming year….

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.
