Rainy Cape Town, Kalk Bay

I’ve been in Cape Town, Kalk Bay to be specific. It was rainy, soft rain. It looked stormy out to sea. A good time to batten down the hatches. Ok, not really. But you must agree that it is a good time to stay indoors in front of the fire and order in lunch. Which is what we did.

What’s He Waiting For, I Wonder?

He gets very excited when he sees a lizard, chasing after it with a heightened sense of focus. In stealth mode, running low to the ground he comes to a stop as he reaches the wall only to look up at the escaping lizard with chagrin.

Share Your World – September 4, 2017

Mondays Cee hosts Share Your World – this is my world this past week. It’s fun to enter.

What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

Black mostly, although when I wear pink or white tops I get compliments on my choice of colour. My favourite colour is green and I don’t have too much green in my wardrobe. I’ve taken to wearing sandy tan shades and i feel good in them too, very earthy. But 99,9% black pants, at least.

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie).

I’m more of a cat person. I have never owned a dog. My nephew’s favourite stuffed animal is a dog called Ruffles which he sleeps with. So cute.

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.

Roses – love them

Ferns – hardy all year round plant and they look good and green all the time

St. Joseph Lillies – they smell so good

Orchids – my wedding bouquet consisted of a purple orchid – so lovely and different to the rest

All trees, especially the ones found in southern Africa, like the acacia tree. It is so evocative of the African bush.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

The warm spring weather has inspired me to take up my DSLR again which in turn has inspired me to buy a new Kelly Moore camera bag, this time one that can take my laptop too. I have a red B-Hobo right now and it doesn’t fit my Mac.

I’m checking out reviews on youtube and I’ve narrowed the search down to 3. More on this later…watch this space.
