Weekly Prompts: Special


Today’s challenge is a Valentine’s Day Special, and the challenge word is ‘Special’.

GC and I don’t normally set a Friday challenge, but hey, it’s a special day so why not. And on this special day we would like you to tell us or show us what is special to you. It could be a colour, a flower, a meal, a place or a person, in fact, it could be anything at all.

Mummy and Daddy went out last night for a Valentine’s dinner. Ouma, looked after me. I had lots of fun. My Ouma is special and I am special to her too. We love each other.

CHILDHOOD

I am busy writing my memoirs. At the moment I have childhood memories that make me smile. Didn’t know I had such a happy childhood.

Today I have a grandchild of three years. I pasted her 2019 photos in an album. Memories of a happy childhood that also make me smile.

A Photo

My precious grand daughter Bea(no, correction Beatrix) visited me for about an hour on the farm. It was to hot to be outside so we sat inside drinking a cold drink. While the adults were discussing the past week while visiting Beas other grand parents in Cambridge, New Zealand, she played with ouma’s scrap booking things. All concentration to try and fit the pieces, which don’t fit at all.

Around my arm will fit better!

Come and join in the fun this month.

Kersfeeswoordsnoer

Dit is kort voor Kersfees. Bea, haar Pappa en Mamma gaan Kersfees by Bea se ander Oupa en Ouma kuier. Daar is gereël dat die naby Ouma gaan kom voordat hulle ry.

Bea en Ouma sit en wonder…

“Ouma, storie bliefie, Ouma,” por  Bea.

Mmmm, eendag was daar ‘n dogtertjie…..

“Nee, nee, nie was daar nie want daar is steeds ‘n dogtertjie, Ouma.”

“Raai wat?” begin Ouma weer.

“Wat, wat?”

Nee, toenou Sussa gee my ‘n kansie!

Verlede jaar net voor Kersfees het ‘n Pappa, Mamma, Ouma en ‘n klein dogtertjie…

“Dis ekke, nê Ouma?”

Ja, Liefie beslis jy. Nou ja…

Klein prinses Bea Bytjie het haar towerstaffie geswaai. Ons het almal met verstomming om ons gekyk. Dit het gelyk of die hemel geval het. Sterre het blink geskyn en ‘n reënboog van kleure hang oor ons.

Ons was in ‘n avontuur wêreld. Die drie honde kom deur die lug aangesweef. So hitte-titte vlieg hul ons onderstebo. 

Bea Bytjie lanseer haarself en land blinkoog op Trompie se rug. Opgewonde vlieg die twee in die sitkamer rond. 

Pappa probeer keer dat prinses Bea Bytjie nie afval nie. Bea spring af en sweef na Pappa wat haar met elke vangskoot raakvang. Sy skaterlag dat die trane oor haar wangetjies rol. Pappa, keer net heeltyd om nie om te val nie.

Pootuit, val Bea op die mat neer.

“Kom prinses Bea Bytjie swaai jou towerstaffie weer sodat ons na die Kersgeskenke kan kyk,”sê Mamma.

Bea swaai haar staffie en ons sit alger op die mat in afwagting om te sien wat die skatte gaan wees wat ons gaan kry.

Ouma vertel:”Ons is saam omdat ons lief is vir mekaar. Daarom gee ons met Kersfees ‘n klein geskenkie. Eintlik gaan dit oor die geboorte van ‘n kindjie wat ons lewens red met sy liefde. Omdat Hy ons so lief het wys ons ons dankbaarheid gedurende die Kersgety deur saam te wees met die mense waarvoor ons lief is.” Klakkeloos sit klein Bea en luister. Eendag gaan sy ook Kersfees ‘n hoogtepunt maak in haar lewe en van haar geliefdes.

Ons maak ons geskenkies oop. Bea se blink ogies is die hoogtepunt van die middag.

Pappa braai ‘n vleisie en voordat ons aansit het Pappa en Bea eers hul kersvader hoede opgesit. Ons het heerlik verder gekuier.

Ouma se hart was vol liefde en geluk om so saam met haar kinders en prinses Bea te kon wees.

Bea and her rocking horse.


I had a wonderful time looking after Bea while Daddy worked in the garage. At first we played with her play dough. Just after eleven Daddy came in to have a cup of coffee. Bea took Daddies hand and led him to the bedroom. She wanted to ride on the rocking horse.

Bea helped Daddy to carry the horse to the lounge.

Then it was time for the ride.

Bea loved the soft hairy mane of the horse. She kept on touching the mane forgetting that she was riding the horse.

Then she got tired, turned the horse on its side and curled up next to it. I covered them with her blanket.

Sweet little girl!
