I was pretty much absent on the blogging front last week. Roll-call would have come up with silence. I was taking photos though so that I’d be able to report back to you that last week consisted of a wonderful trip to Cape Town. For work, off course. Any trip to Cape Town, even a work one is pleasant because, well, Cape Town. I have proof of this assertion…in the photos below. Take a look…
As the plane came in to land this is what greeted me. As you can see it was breathtaking so much so that I quickly switched on my phone to capture it before landing. How gorgeous is that?
Then this was the view that greeted me when I woke up the next morning.
And this one too.
And on my return to the Airbnb from a yummy food outing this is what I found.
And a couple more pics before driving to the airport to catch the plane back home to Jhb.
And this one too.
This cape is the most stately thing and the fairest cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth. – From the journal of Sir Francis Drake, on seeing the Cape for the first time, 1580.
My advice to the young people in my life is – Get your own business, it may not be easy but it is better than being a battery for someone else’s. Take this advice from someone who has spent 25 years being a battery for other people’s business.
I loved the beautiful roses on my sister’s birthday cake, real ones covered in glitter, not sugar ones, in her favourite colour.
Last wekend my Mom made vanilla and chocolate muffins. They lasted but a day except for one lonely muffin – the last one everyone is too shy to have 🙂
Imagine if everyone in the world replaced just one judgemental thought with a curious question, just once every week…?
My preferred medium for sharing my photos with inspirational quotes is Instagram. Some quotes are my own and some aren’t, correctly attributed.
At times I post these here on Wide Eyed in Wonder and other times I don’t. In the spirit of this week’s Discover Challenge, here is a collection of inspirational quotes I’ve posted on Instagram. All photos are my originals, taken with my trusty iPhone.
