Lê-Jou-Eier: Skryf jou eie grafskrif


“Hier rus ek uiteindelik in vrede en harmonie”

Aangesien ek n stil outjie was en steeds met tye is, word daar nogal van my misbruik gemaak. My geaardheid is van so n aard dat ek graag almal wil tevrede stel. Almal moet gelukkig wees ten koste van myself. Ek kan nie Nee sê nie.

Die probleem is dat ek my dinge aantrek wat meestal nie so bedoel is nie. Dit sal heerlik wees om nie te moet bekommer oor wat met almal rondom my gebeur nie of wat hul verwag nie.

Daarom sal dit van pas wees om my in rus en vrede te los. Geen begrafnisrede of niks.

Hier word daar ook meer veras as om regtig te begrawe. Wat met my as gebeur laat ek maar aan die oorlewendes oor.

Waiting: The Daily Post Photo Challange


Waiting for the rain to lift so that the Spring Festival in Upper Hutt could be dry this year. https://www.eventfinda.co.nz/2017/upper-hutt-spring-festival/wellington-region

20170909_120715

It did not happen. Year after year we got rain and cold winds. Waiting for better weather did not help.

I had a Soroptimist business meeting 10 am Saturday morning. I took the photo from the window where we were sitting in the lounge. I thought that everybody was waiting for the sky to clear. It never did.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge says:

Share a snapshot that shows a sense of waiting.

Writing + Memoirs: My bedrooms


Our fold up beds had curtains at the front. When we were in bed we could close the curtains and played that we were in a tent.

=====++++=====

Words: bedroom, holiday, teasing, excitement, post

I used the word bedroom for my Friday It’s Write Easy at our library.

A bedroom is an important room in a home. When I taught at a rural school near Potgietersrus, the children had to draw their homes. The children came from far off rural places. Their homes usually had only one big room. The whole family did everything there. There was no bedroom at all.

I am very privileged that I could share a bedroom with my sisters. First with my older sister and later with my younger sister. I had my bedroom when both my sisters were not living with my parents anymore. The room was a so called “rondawel” meaning a round room with a thatched roof. No ceiling, only wooden beams with the grass on top! This was a bad place to sleep because I had hay fever for Africa due to the dust and grass.

In the Netherlands

My big sister and I shared a bedroom. It was so small and narrow. There were two beds, which were folded up against the walls during the daytime. At night when both were down, you could hardly open the door. The last night, before our departure, we were so excited and could not sleep. My sister and I were playing in bed, in the dark room, when suddenly my bed’s two legs gave way. I crashed on the floor, bedding and all. My parents couldn’t enter the room because the bed was in the way. We were not robust enough to pick up the bed. Finally, my father pushed the bed up against the wall from the outside of the room.

We were told:“Now, stop your play and go to sleep! Tomorrow you have to get up early for our departure to Rotterdam harbour and then off to South Africa.”

On the ship

My parents and younger sister used one cabin while my big sister and I were next doors in a small cabin. It was as big as a cupboard, hardly any space to turn around. There were only two bunk beds. My older sister slept on the top while I used the bottom one. I had to first slide out on my back before I could stand up. We could look out of the porthole and see the sea. Lucky for us the weather was good during our trip. When we had to enter Cape Town harbour a storm broke loose. We could not enter the harbour and had to sail out to the deep sea again. The waves were so huge they came up to the porthole and covered it completely at times. Very scary. We had to stay in our cabin during the storm.

As grown-up:

When I left home, after teaching from home for four years, I slept in my own bedroom in the school hostel. We were four lady teachers, each in separate bedrooms and sharing a bathroom. We were on duty twenty four hours a day just like parents look after their children.

The next move was into my own flat. It had only one bedroom. The bedroom was on the walkway side of the building. My flat was the second last one on the top floor. Near the stairs going down to the garages and parked cars. Very noisy at times especially during weekends. I changed my bedroom to the sitting-room and the sitting-room into the bedroom. I loved to watch people’s faces when I invited them into my bedroom. One day the Reverend, deacon and elderly came to visit and see how I was. They could not believe that they had to go into my bedroom. We had a good laugh and years later we were still joking about me inviting them into my bedroom.

 

Structure: The Daily Post Photo Challenge


This week, share with us the structure of something typically overlooked.

More info about the challenge:

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/structure/

STRUCTURE

3. a complex system considered from the point of view of the whole rather than of any single part: the structure of modern science. 4. anything composed of parts arranged together in some way; an organization.

One of the After School Care boys made this “structure”. It works with four batteries.

Without structure, we won’t see a flower.

Lê-Jou-Eier: Gee en Ontvang


IMG_2899

 

Om te gee is volgens my ondervinding baie makliker as om te ontvang. My idee, as ek gee, is nie om iets terug te ontvang nie. Ek doen die gee uit eie wil, liefde en oorgawe.
Ek het twee weke terug, vir vier weke, n dame se huis en ou Boarder Collie opgepas. Meestal gaan dit daaroor dat die huis nie leeg staan nie, en ook dat die honde(diere) nie ten duurste in n honde-hotel hoef te bly nie. Ek vra n klein bedraggie per dag om die diere te versorg. Die versorging gaan gepaard met vrywillige liefde en aandag wat ek hul gee. Die diere neem meestal n dag of twee en hul eet, soos die spreekwoordelike, uit my hand en vertrou my ten volle. Hul gee dan natuurlik ook al hul liefde vir my.
Hierdie keer se oppas was nogal moeilik. Dit het baie van my gevra om die sestienjarige hond te versorg. Die weer het ook nie saam gespeel nie.Dit was koud en nat. Tog het ek alles gegee wat ek kon om die dier gemaklik te maak. Sy het op die einde my ook gevolg, waar ek ook al gaan. As sy my skielik raaksien buite, sal sy op n drafstappie naderkom. Stertswaaiend haar neus onder my hand sit om te wys sy is bly om my te sien,of asof sy sê: “Aaa, hier is jy. Bly om jou te sien.”
Dit is vir my lekker om alles vir diere te gee. Hul gee so veel aan jou terug.
Die dame van die huis het my betaal toe sy teruggekom het. So n dag of wat later stuur sy n boodskap en vra of ek sal omgee as sy my nog geld gee vir die oppas. Sy was so tevrede en gelukkig met wat ek gedoen het dat sy voel om my nog meer te vergoed. Ek het haar gesê as sy so voel kan sy maar. Ek het ook gesê dat die liefde wat Meggie vir my gegee het vir my meer as genoeg.
Hierdie episode wys dat as mens met liefde gee, ontvang mens dubbeld terug.
Ek kan van verskillende geleenthede vertel van waar ek gegee het en waar daar uit die bloute ontvang kan word ook.
