Uitdaging 39- Landskap (Landscape)

Elke more as ek met Trompie stap kyk ek af ,

of op na die landskap.

Dit is hoe dit lyk as ek die bult uitgeklim het(eintlik opgeloop het)

Halfpad uitgeklim en omgedraai om foto te neem


Bo gekom , draai regs dan sien mens die volgende bult


Bo van die bult af kyk mens oor huise en geboue se dakke na Upper Hutt(dorp) verder weg die rivier en dan die volgende Hills(heuwels)

Skywatch Friday: Sunrise this week again from my doorstep

Wintertime is a time of getting out of bed a bit later in the mornings.

Just after the longest night we had the most

beautiful sun rises.

I leaf my curtain open a bit at night so I can see the morning breaking.

The glow this morning was awesome.

Join us at


every Friday for some beautiful skies.

Lovely parcel

One of our bread ranges gave people the opportunity to collect points

by sending in a code which you had to collect from each bread.

Each code gave you 10 points and you had to collect 80 points.

80 points gave a choice of lovely jams, peanut-butter and  sauces.

 The first one I collected was chutney

second one was honey

the third one was plum products.

I received my third parcel this morning.

It was so beautifully packed I have to share it with all of you.

Writing 101, Day eleven: My home when I was 12



Tell us about the home where you lived when you were twelve. Which town, city, or country? Was it a house or an apartment? A boarding schoolor foster home? An airstream or an RV? Who lived there with you?

Today’s twist: pay attention to your sentence lengths and use short, medium, and long sentences as you compose your response about the home you lived in when you were twelve.


June 19, 2014


My home, to me as a twelve year old girl, was a house in a rural area called Erasmia in South Africa. I lived there for 5 years with my parents and two sisters.

There were not many houses at that time. Today it is a town on its own and also a suburb of Pretoria(today called Tswane).

This house, in Peter Street, had three bedrooms, a kitchen- big enough to house a dining table, a lounge, bathroom and toilet.

I shared a bedroom with my younger sister . We each had a bed that was folded  up against the wall during the day. On top was a shelve from which hang a curtain to cover it up. When using the beds at night, we had to make sure that the two front legs were wide open.  It happened at times that, while turning around in my sleep, the legs would collapse. It was quite a shock when you suddenly fall out of bed! I can still remember it clearly!

The kitchen was the best place to be. Most of our daily activities took place there. We had a black Esse wood stove. My mother baked delicious dishes in it. Wintertime it was warm and cosy in the kitchen. My parents usually closed the inner door to keep it lovely and warm. We would sit around the table and listen to the radio. First the news at 7pm and the bible reading at quarter past(boeke vat) . The best was the evening story 7:30 pm – “Die geheim van Nantes” and/or “Die de Plooys van Soetmelksvlei.”

I can’t remember much more of the house. It had three round windows in the front. This was kind of unusual for those days. There was a small “stoep”(veranda) at the side. A double door let you through to the lounge.

The garden was quite big. It went up a hill or “koppie”. At the top were big boulders and some tall trees. We loved to play there. It felt like in the jungle. All covered between the branches. Nobody could see us when we were up there. We usually played Tarzan and the apes. We climbed these trees like real monkeys.

At the bottom of this hill there was a chicken run. We always had hens and fresh laid eggs. There were also turkeys – they were for Christmas time!

This is all I can Remember at the moment.
