  • Through my window: Snow?

    Last night was stormy with wind gusts over 100km an hour. Heavy showers on and off. Early morning there was silence. I got out of bed, opened the curtain, and this is what I saw. From the main house looking at the same bed and hills. I took Beatrix to school on foot. Flurries of […]


  • Grandmother/mother’s day photo.

  • Eyes.

    Yesterday Beatrix decided to draw some faces. Look at the eyes! She mastered the way of drawing different expressions by drawing the eyes differently. She made a card for me and these faces were inside. I didn’t show or tell her anything she did it all on her own. I’m very proud of her and […]

  • Playtime at Ouma’s place.

    I had a little visitor. She had a good time playing with her “Ouma’s” toys. Dressing her magnetic doll and visiting the people on her farm. Then Bea ate an ice lolly and wet her lovely pink dress. We had to look for something to wear while the dress dried in the sun. We picked […]
