2014 What a way to start

So time has flown past so fast and the short holiday that I had was to short to even notice.

But true to the new year And celebrations we did enjoy it.

Just a short entry I have a lot to do  before the weekend.  But A update none the less.

 

When life has so many unexpected events happening in your life that it feels like you going to drown in the sea of expectations. It felt like that to me. I was thrown into the deep end of this. everyone expected me to swim. each thing that hit me made me feel like sinking. I wanted to give up and drown. Drown in sorrow and sadness. Feeling the feelings of despair and  unsuccessful emotions. But somehow I kept going something made me want to keep going. Even if it was slowly.

So my planned holiday got canceled and the time I wanted to write, read and just do nothing was filled with unfortunate lists of things to do. So I was negative. Negative to everything.

Christmas past and to be honest it was just another day to me. This year it didn’t feel like the festive season.

New year was a blast. But still I was negative. Making it one of the least favorite new years.

What I then found to be is that I had a waist for a holiday. It made me grumpy and Agro at everything and everyone

If it wasn’t for friends and family I think I would have been a sour old lady before my short break was over. So after countless wining and chats I got to be positive about life.

I only saw the negative but when I counted my blessings I started to see that they are more than the bad.

God blessed me with so many things I could only go down on my knees and pray.

Don’t let the negative in life take over stop and look t what is positive in life. in your life

Back to reality

Hey to all I hope everyone had a fantastic festive season. For that I have had(smile)

I know that I have been neglecting my blog but with good reason. For the last couple of weeks I have traveled, moved, celebrated and enjoyed a Holiday over the festive season. (wish I could do some of it all over again. Sigh) But any way I am back to reality. It is some what more comfortable then I would like to admit. Routine, work, people. I seem to have missed it a little.

Deep down I wish that 548760_396792177065425_570958745_nit was again the start of my holiday where I was on my way to my cousins wedding (what a way to kick start a holiday) Ithala game reserve lodge. WOW what a place to be. Gorgeous place to have a wedding.

In Kwazulu-natal South Africa, I found myself in a peace of Eden. Beauty of nature and rustic architecture made it a place were you are one one with nature. (And not far from technology)

Surrounded by bush veld trees and wild animals made it more  like a Jungle book scene then a wedding venue.

Naming just some of the Wild Animals listed at this reserve – Elephant, Rhinoceros, Giraffes, diverse buck (spring buck, water buck etc.) zebra’s, baboons, monkeys, etc. 67982_10200290735693341_1407795641_n380589_10200290728893171_1366168301_n

Enough advertizing. We had such a wonderful time there that it seems like a life time ago. The wedding was all and all lovely and was a good start too. Having a wedding in one of world’s most beautiful places is amazing to witness and maybe one day, shall I be as lucky to get a nature wedding too.

I admit I am a sucker when it

comes to weddings – I just love it. (maybe I should have become a wedding planner)

So after the wedding my holiday was on track with every moment planned – doing nothing for as long as I could. Until the big move. (oohg) What a mission boxes and furniture every where you looked making me nerves . How am I going to move all that.

I must say I have some pretty awesome friends that was more then happy to help me move. (Next time I am moving with just my clothes. Into a place that is already furnished) Sipping ice cold beer under the big oak tree was a reward like no other. We were done everything was in its place. The relaxing can start again.

Just wait Tomorrow is the end of the word (LOL) we had a streetbraai to make a moment of 21 December 2012. Friends all together laughing talking and eating amazing watermelon while the men stood with braai – meat ready like just South African’s can.

Family – The one thing that I have plenty of (not complaining about it) it is great to have so much to be thankful for. Christmas is the best time to spend with family and friends.  Now it seems like a dream. Everybody has their special way of celebrating Christmas now.

New years – Time to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new. New years resolutions made for what would be – hope to be a kick ass 2013….

So to end my post for today I would like to say may all have a happy New year filled with Love, Joy, Happiness and peace.

Holloween.

It is that time of year again……

 Trick or treat, smell my feet
give me something good to eat…

In South Africa we don’t really celebrate Halloween. We know of it very well, but due to diverse cultures

and religions. We don’t have an annual Halloween night.

Though some club parties have been held in the Halloween spirit.

It is still not as BIG as maybe in the USA or other parts of the world.

One of my favorite movies on Halloween.

A few years back the movie Trick Or Treat was released

I loved the entwined stories that all have one thing or one person in common – SAM.

Sam is the reminder of how Halloween should be celebrated and in every part of the movie he is correcting the Halloween traditions.

So Hope you don’t break some traditions this Halloween.

Happy Halloween to all
