Bertelsmann Volkslexikon

Long ago, in a land far away - no, just kidding. But decades before Google we had this amazing book at home which had the answer to everything.

591 cable ties and counting

Making a bowl from ring pulls, secured with cable ties. I saw it on the internet and I have to have one :-) Waiting for more ring pulls to finish the job.

It's coming, it's coming

The storm came from the south, the wind came from the north, so we didn't really get much rain.

In South Africa, our land

MrPrice has this wonderful LOVE RSA range, journals, cushions, beach chairs, plates, mugs, cups, umbrellas and so much more. I love it. But only got the journals :-)

Can't wait

to get home, and get into bed with a book.

My piece of the puzzle

No. 53 of 81.
We were each given a piece to decorate, illustrate etc. They're going to put all the pieces together to create an image. Can't wait to see what happens.

Sew what?

Did a lot of sewing the past weekend. Made a bag for T. - the cerise, orange, purple one. A bag for K. - the blue, orange stripe material. The cushion is a Christmas gift (or to keep, haven't decided yet). Pumlazee is the animal cushion for C. - his boy is due in 2 weeks. P. asked me to make her a voodoo doll and promised not to use it for evil - hmmm, hope and pray ;-)

Things I miss - 1

Last issue, two years ago.
A wonderful publication, I loved it. Miss it.

Mid-morning snack!

Bowl from BLOND Amsterdam.

And the rain came

At last, on the weekend. Wonderful!

Much more confetti

Twinkle, twinkle

Went outside at about midnight and saw my favourite constellation.
When S, my border collie, was still alive, we would lie on the lawn at night, side-by-side, and look up at it and marvel at these magical lights.

Go out tonight and look for it - it's at this angle in the NE.

Worked over an image grabbed from: http://www.orionn49.com/

what did I do for you today?

The guys in the office feel that  my deeds go unnoticed, so they have created this poster. LOL:-)

Flavoured memories

This morning I ate some white (although they are green) grapes. The flavour of one in particular made me remember grapes I ate for breakfast at a hotel along the Garden Route when I was 10 or 11. It made me remember other snapshots of the holiday - like the Garden of Eden, which I thought was magical. But when I revisited during my 40s I couldn't enjoy its beauty over the noise of the highway in background, running right on its rim.
