Dragonflies and Fairies

This week we had our first meeting of the Trailblazers for the Church of the Earth. I mentioned last week that I have been asked to help with their social media and blogs. I have already created a Pinterest account for us as we attended a blog webinar which said that Pinterest is one of …

Ability to Breath

I have so much to tell you all! Grab a cuppa and settle in for the magical journey we are about to go on. I've had a busy week and it has been rather exceptional! I mentioned that I was going for Ancestral Healing work with my friend Tass last Saturday? I hate to drive …

The Elixir

Once we open ourselves up to opportunities, often the experiences come flying at us quickly and that is what seems to be happening with me since I decided to start venturing out of my cave. Last weekend seemed to be non-stop but it was packed with fun. I mentioned in my last post that we …

A Bird In Paradise

Last weekend I was so grateful for some sunshine! After a solid week of rain and cold I was getting a bit of cabin fever. I spent all of last Saturday and Sunday sitting in the garden watching my birds and pondering life. I had such a deep feeling of contentment and happiness and I …

The Birds and Bees

Our house is never silent. There are the yappy poms, chatty Finn, meowling cats and in addition I tend to always have music on in the background. Even when I sit in the garden I put on music. One day my Spotify was acting up and so I turned it off to go sit outside …

Unpacking My Baggage

I have a confession to make. I have an obsession with birds. Not in a lesbian sorta way, but in a David Attenborough sorta way. When I was young I do not remember having this fascination with birds. I do remember sitting out on the patio in Georgia with my beloved Grandmother watching the birds …

Quarter Century

I often forget how old I actually am. I definitely do not feel old. However Norm and I had our 25th wedding anniversary on July 5th so obviously I am really, really old. On the evening of our actual anniversary it was a bit of a disaster. It was load shedding and we both worked …

The Certainty of Uncertainty

One certainty about living in South Africa is that everything is often uncertain. My current project has been full of uncertainties. We have been asking for a plan with priorities and it was finally presented on Wednesday. We felt confident and charged off with our top 5 priorities. Then on Thursday the plan changed. It …
