There is nothing like a sunset under the African skies. The colours are intense and the sense of peace and calm which surrounds one, fill one with awe, is one of the most amazing experiences one can experience.
It changes from light to dark in a heart beat, then the magic begins. A midnight velvet sky, lit up by millions of stars. Winter in the Southern Africa is very different, to North America. Most days got up to 25 C. Going for a swim everyday is also on the cards!
Part of my trip, included packing up a two bedroom townhouse and preparing it for the next owner. Having moved as many times as we've had to over the years, one just get on with the job. It took six days, which was great. When all the packing was done, I got to spend some time with special quilting friends. Popping into a few Quilt and Fabric shops, one is the size of a very large supermarket.
What do you get an eighty year old for their birthday? This had us all debating for months on end.
A Tablet, the largest one we could find. He now has his own email, one of the grandsons set it up, part of his email adress is 007. We all got excited, for now we could send photos and write on the email, except the games on the tablet, he is having far more fun with that. So when the email pops up, he is minimizing it! We have gifted the task of email to the grandchildren, they are going to teach him that part. We will continue to call him, as we always do....
