Wow, the time has flown already. We’ve been in Paarl for almost a month. Somehow, I lose track of time. I’ve been saying, “two weeks.” We moved on November 27th and it’s December 22nd! Sweetness and I had a crazy day after we moved. We had to pack out the house and get the living room/kitchen ready for guests who were coming on Friday. What … Continue reading Almost Christmas
We have been crazy busy! I was packing, packing, packing and sorting to get rid of the excess. Move day arrived with a bang last week Wednesday. Peter called the moving company to confirm the time they will arrive. They phoned him back to inform him the move day is Thursday, not Wednesday as he had requested and they confirmed. There wasn’t any way we … Continue reading Where in the world am I?
Well, I’ve been packing. Our domestic, Sweetness, and I accomplished quite a bit yesterday. The majority of the kitchen is packed except for the pots and the plates and cutlery, glasses, etc that we are still using. The upstairs hasn’t been touched but have requested that each of our kids pack their own clothes. I’ll do my things over the weekend. I think I am … Continue reading Tiny bit tired….
Well, the packing has gone relatively easy. I hit the garage over the weekend with my husband. He helped a bit (moved boxes and loaded the trailer). It was a seriously daunting task. There were boxes of things that we have carted from house to another. It was not necessary to still move them again so I sorted out what was in the boxes and … Continue reading A week to go
You’re probably wondering why on earth this bizarre image is there. Well, it’s computer lingo that only qualifed people understand and I’m not one of those people. Thankfully, I hired a brilliant young man, Dean from Local-DesignZA to do the speciality work. He’s staring his own company with friends to design websites, etc. He’s really good and my husband calls him “stoic”but I totally get … Continue reading Quick Update
Of course you are wondering where I have disappeared to. So much has happened in the past few months. I had professional photos taken a few months ago. I’m very happy with the results. A young lady in our office who does all the video and photography was hired to do the pictures. I also had a professional makeup artist do my makeup so I … Continue reading Where am I now?
Now why on earth would anyone spend money on a high end products you may ask? I’ve been just like everyone else, saving money, purchasing brands such as L’oreal, Maybelline, Cover Girl, etc. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with those brands. They have been great products and I still use some of them to this day! As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that sometimes, it’s worth … Continue reading My Chanel experience
I feel like God just has me on a massively long lesson of….WAIT….and…TRUST…. I couldn’t have the simple lessons, no, I had to get the big ones. It’s all fine. I’m chuckling to myself as I write this. The words “big dummy” fly through my head as I write since I think I must be slightly slower than others when it’s learning time. Another lesson … Continue reading Moving | another lesson
So, it’s been a long hot minute since I’ve last written anything on my blog. I have truly been swamped with writing my book. I finished the bulk re-writing last month and I basically took a bit of a breather. The cover is busy being designed with the graphic designer. I’ve seen her work, it’s beautiful. I trust her and I know she has other … Continue reading Book update (Sept 2019)
Before it gets hectic, I seem to be just resting. It’s come natural. Sure, I’ve jotted down a few things for the next book but it was just to jog the old memory banks. I’m not actively writing another book. I can feel when it’s the right time and when to just let it lie. My husband took us out to a wine farm, Noble … Continue reading calmness
