"let your boat of life be light, packed with only
what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, someone to love and someone to love you,
enough to eat and enough to wear
and a little more than enough to drink:
for thirst is a dangerous thing"

seriously cheating today

What a peach of a day.  I have been really busy in the garden and have cut back an enormous amount of stuff (probably too much).   The granadilla creeper was on it's last warning and has not performed so she has been cut down to the ground.  The wisteria is already starting to spring it's spring leaves - the gardens must be very confused with this warm July and August weather.  We have now been invited to Dalene for an early braai and I have not even showered yet.  I have a couple of things from the week that I wanted to share and for a public holiday, I thought it would be a good idea.

Firstly this travel video which is doing the rounds on You Tube.  The blurb that comes with it:-

"3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage... all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ....into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films = a trip of a lifetime."

Pretty awesome.  Too quick to select which of the 11 countries he is in though (did see SA for the soccer WC though). Don't you think it is amazing?

Then David Beckham and his new daughter Harper Seven.  

David and Harper Beckham
Cute baby, pretty damn handsome father

And then especially for Woman's Day. 


Back tomorrow.  Hope you are having a wonderful day.
