A Double Thanks

Posted on

Thank you to Bird,, for nominating me for the Inspiring Blogger Award. I really appreciate this, especially coming from someone who is the essence of inspiration – going through very tough times, you still manage to joke and you tell it like it is, not hiding anything. Stay strong, Bird!

Thank you to my dear friend, Mr Bunny Chow, for my very special and very gorgeous sketch of a little Brahman calf – I love it! πŸ™‚

There are still flowers left from the past weekend when we had the big 50th on the farm, and I thought that since they are bright and beautiful (well, they were, but they’re still fine…), I’ll share them with you. The first pic is a very amateur effort of a still life, but aside from the fact that I am an amateur (;) ) let’s blame it on the time constraint – I have to get back to the farm to see what is going on there! And the second is a close-up of the heart of the Gerbera you can see in the first picture. (Yes, you’ve guessed it, yellow is my SO’s favourite colour!!!!) πŸ™‚

Still life


Although it is Friday, over here it feels a lot like Monday since we had a holiday yesterday, and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!!! Enjoy whatever comes your way!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


About zelmare

In a nutshell: I'm a woman of 'a certain age', I recently moved after living in the same area for 27 years, i raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), got divorced, and in due course, met and fell in love with the most amazing man, and i moved to a small town called Nylstroom. A lot of my blogs will most probably be about my new life, my family and friends, and my interests, which are taking pictures, travelling, food, re-decorating, music and books. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people! :)
