Pekoe Tea Plantation (Magoebaskloof, South Africa)

I did the processing a bit different to my previous shot, but it just suited this perspective so much better (…I think…) – Let me know what you think!! 😀 **

Exciting news!!!

Good evening everyone!!! I know I know – I’ve been veeeeeeery quiet the last couple of weeks 😦 – the reason being two-fold…

1. I’ve run out of photos & can’t seem to find the time to get out & take new ones to share with you!!! 😦 &

2. There has been a LOT happening – we have been keeping very busy!!!! 😉

… & on this point – WE (me & He-who-thinks-he’s-boss) have started a blog – (Almost) Living it up in Canada – you can view this here!!! 😀 Obviously it is still a very raw blog – a lot will change as we settle into it – but we wanted a place to document the exciting things that is happening in our lives!!! … 😉

I will keep on posting on this/my blog… Over the next couple of months I won’t be posting regularly at all – so much to organise & do!!! I trust you will understand!!!

Us being silly at a wedding!!!

Have a great evening everyone!!! Almost weekend & it’s gooooooood…. 😀 **

National Women’s Day…

Tomorrow SA celebrates National Women’s Day!! – now a public holiday!! 😀 Yay!!! 😀

I leave you with the latest incarnation of the phrase that the women sang in protest in 1956 – this phrase has come to represent women’s courage & strength in South Africa:

National Women’s Day (9 August)

“You strike a woman, you strike a rock…!!!”

Happy Women’s Day!!! 😀 **

Bushveld Sunset…

This weekend I visited my Mommy on their farm for the celebration of her SO’s* 50th birthday… I happen to glance to the west & saw this sunset… – very lucky, because in less than 5 minutes, it was gone…!!!!

Beautiful…. There are few things as beautiful as a peaceful bushveld sunset!!! 🙂 **
