Photo Friday - 29 April 2011

It was a pleasant, relaxing week,
 with 2 public holidays days AND 2 long weekends back to back…   
Winter is here, accompanied by the freezing night temperatures!

And as the temperatures is decreasing, the appetites are increasing accordingly!
Nina spoiled us with delicious scones, while Casper had fun with flipping pancakes! :)

R&R week...
 "Rest and Relaxation" all the way...
Henk (my husband) and Casper (3rd son).

Barend (2nd son), Henri (eldest son) and a friend, Pieter.

Time to relax...

We had to stop the car to take this picture (below).
Passengers are allowed to look at the sunset
s-h-i-n-i-n-g it's long evening rays on the grass fields.

The driver must obviously try to find a way to pass the  "few" potholes around Marquard. 
Where to drive? ... Left side, right side or in the middle? 
Yah, we all drive 'wild' to prevent a flat wheel!
If you want to test your reaction time, come and visit!

To conclude, 
beautiful rosebud before the first frost arrived two days ago.

See you next week! :)

Photo Friday - 22 April 2011

I've got the idea of a PHOTO FRIDAY
from my blog friend, 
That way you can keep track of all your activities throughout the year.

We had lovely rains on Monday - 47mm in half an hour's time!    
Marquard never ever had as much rain as this past year.

My dogs love it to go running in open spaces...
...for now, WET open spaces.  
The golf course is near our house, so I took them there to get rid of all their energy.
(Note: I walk, they run!)

Tuesday evening: 
Bible study at our house.
We enjoyed chatting and drinking tea afterwards.

Me and my friend, Paula,
attended a food demonstration on Wednesday.
My favourite was the
créme brûlée. It's a WINNER!
(…also a calorie winner!!!)

After the demo I strolled through the beautiful Waterfront Mall.

Casper's classes at the University was finished for the day.
He quickly helped me to buy groceries.
There will be many hungry bellies at home this weekend!! 

It was House- and Gardenclub meeting on Thursday.
Anisa of Succulent Decor in Pretoria talked with us.

All the kids are at home this weekend  - YIPPEE!!!

Our Friday morning started with a church service 8h00.
Thank God and Jesus
for the care, love ...
for our lives...

Ek het die idee van 'n FOTO VRYDAG 
by my blog vriendin, Betty , gekry.
So hou 'n mens rekord van al jou bedrywighede deur die jaar.

Dit het heerlik gereën Maandag. 
47mm in 'n half uur!!
Marquard het nog nooit ooit soveel reën gehad soos die afgelope jaar nie.
My honde 'love' dit om te gaan draf.
(LW:  Ek stap, hulle draf!)

Bybelstudie by ons huis.
Ons drink lekker tee en eet vetkoek met maalvleis na die tyd.

Ek en my vriendin, Paula,
was Woensdag in Bloemfontein by 'n Kos-demonstrasie.
My gusteling was die créme brûlée. Dis 'n WENNER!

Daarna het ek 'n bietjie by die mall rondge'stroll'...

Casper het my gou gehelp om kruideniers te koop.
Daar gaan baie honger magies die naweek by die huis wees!

Dit was Huis- en Tuinbouvergadering Donderdag.
Anisa van Succulent Decor in Pretoria het met ons kom praat.

Ek is SKATRYK!!!!
Al die kids is die naweek by die huis - LEKKE!!!

Ons Vrydag-oggend het begin met 'n kerkdiens 8h00.
Dankie God en Jesus
vir die omgee, die liefde...
vir ons lewe...
