Life is good!

Hi to you all

Yes, I went shopping and I loved it!!! (doesn't matter if the basket is too small.. actually, correction!!! it will never be too small!!!!)
and I couldn't wait to do something, and this was so quick and easy...                
Before .....
And After..........
Tah-Dah !!!!!.......
I love the way yarn can transform something so simple and turn it into an eye-popping feature on your table.
Never will serviettes and condiments look the same......
(I loved my tah-dah moment)
Really LOOVED it!!!!  

Its been about 3 weeks since we had our first rain and really you cannot believe the difference it has made to our little world.  It almost feels like a new place and it even feels a little tropical (Ye, not really, after all, we do life on the fringes of the Kalahari Desert!) but we haven't had rain for so long, that we have forgotten what it use to be like.
A wonderful lazy summer day hide out to watch........
.....  dragonflies dance over the water.....
 ... the reflection of the clouds on the water....           
  ... new life starting .............
   ... tadpoles ...
 .... in various stages of life....
 ..... by the millions.....
 ....... weaver birds nesting .....
.....a gentle breeze blowing through the  leafy canopy...
and a promise of more ....
...wonderful,  wonderful, life creating juice...
  ... a strange sight in the desert, there aren't very many around...
..... a round stone washed open by the rain.....
and flowers popped up everywhere....





and lovely greenery every where....






even the not so real had a wash and looked clean and fresh??? really???  OK.. new!!!!



I love the gentle tinkle of a wind-chime....
A message to everyone....
A lovely cool, quiete place to ponder the wonders of nature...
 ....while a little nap is always in order...
And I am extremely happy to report that our newest edition to our donkey herd is doing much, much better...
   .....   Still very thin....
   .... but she'll get there... 
And so my friends, life is really really good and happy in my little corner of the world!!!!!!!!!!! and it's only 1 more day to Xmas.  
Still have a lot to do. tra-la-la-la-la...
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Xmas and I will see you soon.

Love
Amarie
