Rain, Rain, Go Away...

OK So I know that water is top of the list for priorities in the world but this weekend in the Western Cape was "beyond" as far as water goes!
Thing is Meesta is away & Missy here had to sort out the swimming pool, stop the "Kreepy Krauly" from washing away etc & if it was a beautiful hot day I wouldn't have a problem with sticking my hand in the freezing cold water to sort it out! Get it sorted & viola there comes the rain & more rain & more rain! If only there was a way to contain all this water!

Sunrise Art

Yesterday was about sunset! Today, didn't get to see the sun rise, it's cold & very wet & no sunrise or sunset to be seen! These photo's of the sun rising have all been taken from different parts of my home over the past few years. I love photo's of the sunrise & sunset but as an artist I don't have any desire to paint them! I have photo's that do them far more justice than painting them would, well for me anyway!

Sunset Art

I took these photo's on route to my son's wedding! I don't have a fancy camera (wish i did) but don't think they are half bad considering they were taken from the inside of a moving car!

Chocolate Art

I have this amazing collection of books! This is one of many! Was thinking that I would start a weekly "thing" were I would put the cover of the book & invite you to have a look inside, sharing a recipe, a how to, art etc. Still not quite sure what to call it, thought of Pandora's Box but still playing around with a few ideas! These images come from The Australians Women's Weekly book called "Chocolate" and I think the images are works of "chocolate" art! Will post one of the recipes soon. Have a fabulous day!

Squinting Bugaloo!

Shew! can't believe I haven't posted for 3 weeks! My little angel "Bugaloo", who will be 5 years old in October, suddenly started squinting in her left eye! She has been to see an Ophthalmologist and will be visiting the next one on Friday 17 July for a second opinion. Looks like she will have to wear glasses, which she is rather "cool" about but having to wear them 24/7 is going to be really challenging!
She loves the jungle gym, her bicycle, the trampoline and generally being a "monkey"! Will have to invest in a really sturdy "goody" to keep them on her face/head!
So we will know the total outcome of the squint next Friday around 1pm! Will keep you posted!
