The Same Way Twice

Last week Norm met our new neighbours who have moved into the property that was previously a guest house. He said they seem nice, the husband is a Frenchman named Pierre and the wife is named Saskia and is Greek (he thinks). We share the wall by our pool in common. This is the same …

Painting and Maintaining

I had such a lovely weekend with my daughters last week. Last Saturday Lily went to a baby shower for a friend who lives in Cape Town and then came to join Caitlin and I to do some painting at Clay Café. Caitlin nor I had eaten so we ordered food when we arrived. Healthy …

No matter how determined we are on our journey there is always the possibility of slippage from our path. As per my last blog it can be due to the little devilish voice of our Inner Saboteur or it can be other banana peels which land at our feet. I slipped from my Keto path …

Triggered

It appears that some warmth is finally starting to find its way through all of the damp and cold we have been having.

Shadows

The hot weather has continued but despite the mugginess in the air promising us rain it has been scarce. We received a few drizzles again on Friday, we are so thankful to the Water Spirits and the Cloud Spirits. I pray that they distribute water liberally over our dams. I would so rejoice if we …
