Exam Time

A Big Hello To All My Friends Out There

I am thrilled to see so many international hits on my blog!!!!!!!!
All the way from Nigeria, The Philippines, Alaska, Germany, Russia and the USA, and of course, home!!!!!!!  It's simply just wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!

This last week mom's taxi has been running little Miss J  back and forth to write her varsity exams.  It's been quite stressful.  Now she has a small study break till her next subject on  Nov 07.   
Exams though, really freaks her out!!!  She gets really nervous and jittery and can actually make herself quite sick.  This last Monday she wrote "Legal Aspects in Accountancy" and struggled a bit to study, so Miss Molly spend her week-end helping her little sister study.  And it worked.  Thank you Molly!!!  You're the best.

I have also crocheted a new bag while watching TV and waiting for Miss J at varsity and I must say, I am really quite proud of it.  This one is for my other sister, Makie and I hope she's going to like it.  
It's actually the second bag I made for her, but my other sister Zennet, decided that she wanted it.  So another bag had to be made and this is the bag I made the first time.  I found this pattern on 
Attic24:  and this was my very first bag I made.  I must say, Lucy at Attic24 is a great teacher.  Her step-by-step instructions are easy to follow and her blog is wonderfully bright and happy and makes for easy reading.
             A Bag For Zennet
Now the next bag I made for sister Makie, is mostly my own design.
I had a few hexagons left from a previous project  and this is how I used them.
            A Bag for Makie
Cool!!!!!! Even if I say so myself.  
It's time to start supper and I think I will make a nice chicken curry tonight.  It's just a little cool today, so a curry will be just perfect.

Keep well my friends and I will see you soon
Happy blogging

Our Furry Friends

Hello Dear Friends

Yesterday 6th October was World Card Making Day and I am so glad to say, I have finally finished the cards I made to enter the World Card Making Day Competition!  I hope they get there before the deadline of 15th October and hold thumbs that it will go well!  I hope you thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful day as much as I did.  Imagine, a special day for card makers!!!!!
Today I want to share with you some of the other animals on the farm. 
Leopard  -  Mr Winston...

Black Leopard - actually a monkey in disguise.....

Brown lion cub - a teddy bear look-alike

White tigers and white lion - They are just so darn cute!!!!

And now for the more domesticated ones:
Bontie - found the kitchen sink the coolest place to be on a hot summers day ....                                                                                                                 
Dozer - the "Dozy Great Dane" - watching TV and giving his approval...
Brandy - the "police watch dog".  Nothing happens on this farm that she doesn't know about.  She even controls Dozer!!! ...
Lola:  She is sooo sweet and almost fairy-like.  She is Dozer best  friend....
Angel:  The "queen" of the household.  She doesn't really like anyone, except hubby, and spends her whole day grooming herself... (Very, very moody) and she can give a look that gets both humans and animals to back off!!!!!
  Popcorn:  doing what he does best!!
Rosco, well he's the handsome one, a really lovable and friendly boy! 
and then there is Tar - a real farm cat. He has found a little vervet monkey who somehow got left behind from the troop and then decided to stay with Tar.  They have become best friends.  Sorry, I do not have a photo of the monkey!  Will try and get one and post it as soon as I can.  He's not very camera friendly....
Bontie, Brandy, Lola, Rosco and Tar are all rescue animals.

Hubby's been sick this week, but thankfully he's getting better each day.  Has to be back at the doc again on Tuesday. 

This has been fun but I have to go now.  Will visit with you soon!!

PS:  I really can't believe I could forget one of our pets!!!! and believe me he is by far the hardest to over look because he is right here next to me and talks all of the time. Soo Sorrryy Blue!! 
Now that really is all of our pets!!!!!!!!!!
