Here is a glimpse of what I got up to:
Firstly, this was the first weekend where I had some real downtime since dad first got sick in July. He had a really good week last week going to work for a couple of hours a day, eating well and his breathing and glucose levels were pretty stable the whole week. I think we may have turned a corner and I am very grateful for all the love, support and especially the prayers.
|Spring at/on my finger tips. On Friday afternoon I took my afternoon off and went for|
a wonderful mani and pedi
|Saturday was officially the first day of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere...goodbye winter!!|
|First I had my hair done which I am not happy with. Then after walking around and sorting out a couple|
of things in the mall I treated myself to lunch.....guess who did not start a diet on spring day!!
|On Saturday evening I made these yummy yums for our picnic on Sunday. Some are|
double dipped and I am sure they could be classified as sinful!!
On Sunday it was decided that fun was the order of the day. Now I am not fond of zoo's. I guess being from Africa where I can and do go on safari and see our wildlife in their natural habitat, zoo's seem unnatural and to a degree cruel to me but the kids love it and it is fun to walk around.......so off we went on Sunday to the Pretoria Zoo. I would apologise for all the photos but well this is only a small portion of the 332 I took so I reckon you guys are getting off lightly!!
|My Gidi at the Zoo|
|We have a big issue with rino poaching|
|Gidion and his friend Caleb|
|He would not wear his hat so he had to keep his hoodie on...|
|Please can we get a move on now!!!|
|Brother and sister with green teeth from the candy floss/cotton candy!!!|
|Sweet...they are kissing!!|
|Pretty in pink for spring!|
|Trying to convince brother to pose for a pic|
|I have a thing for elephants so here is the first of many photos....|
|I actually went up in the cable cars..|
|Gidi steering and mom pushing and ouma (granny) walking|
|Rika, Caleb and Simone|
|He just wanted to get to the monkeys|
|The hyaenas came out to play|
|At first I though that this king vulture was a statue but no.....|
|Check out that wing span...|
|My turn to push!!|
|Cuddles with mom!!|
|Full tummies equal big smiles!!|
|I love this photo...."King of the world'!!|
|Rhino...he made me so sad because he seemed so lonely except the truth is that is he is probably more|
safe in the zoo than out in the wild.
|We did lots and lots and lots of walking|
|In the cable car|
|Hippos from above|
|He also made me sad....|
|The Apies (monkey) River where we had our picnic|
|Told you I loved them.......|
|The new hair....the colour is great but the cut is terrible!!!|
