"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"

it's been awhile

No blogging for ages and once again, not to make excuses but put all this together - enough work to keep me nicely busy but not that busy that we could not take an extra long weekend and have an awesome time at Fancourt with friends at the start of the month; then a tad of winter hibernation, lots of food and fires; together with a good balance of time with family and friends; fun times at birthday parties;  a few sneaky black and bitter americano's at various coffee shops in the neighbourhood; many wonderful early morning winter walks; a few mountain trails and exploring the Green Belt with Alfie; special times with lovely ladies in our weekly art class class and then stealing time on my own to experiment with pencils and shadows; bottles of wine and chili Old Brown; a love affair with a spunky Boston Terrier (Alfie) who has been my travelling companion this week and lastly not forgetting meeting two special little girls, getting to know them (even a feed in between) and taking them along with us, in pouches, on our morning walks

In words that about sums up the lovely time I have had this June

Some think I am crazy but I love winter!

Now the pictures

Fancourt at it's best

Beautiful weather and amazing skies

The spa to ourselves
Drive home through the Tradouw Pass

Soups and Stews

Sharpening our pencils

Walks with Alfie - How can you not just love him?
Drinks with the girls - How can you not just love them?
First people on the Boomslang this particular morning

Wine Delivery Dogs - my first "Salfie"
How precious? 8 weeks old, identical little girls
It comes back pretty quickly
Thanks for sharing Didi xx
