Every morning I get up around 5am, shower, go to the kitchen and make tea (for Richard and Mom) and hot chocolate or coffee for Connor. Richard and Connor get their cuppas in bed. Friday was no different ... When I went into Connor's room this is how I found him sleeping ...
When I leave the house in the morning this is the first sight I see as I open the front door ... it is my friendship garden ~ originally planted by my friend Alison and then added onto by my friend Natalie ~ The roses that Natalie planted are blooming beautifully.
I jumped into my car and was dreading the traffic as I got going about 20 minutes later than usual ... this is what my road looks like just as I pull out of the driveway ... and I am off and going for another day with my January teddy bear on my dashboard.
Around the corner this man sets up 'shop' every morning where he sells boerewors rolls ... although the weather was overcast and a bit wet he was still out there preparing for his day. When I see this I am really thankful that I work in a building which is temperature controlled, dry and pleasant.
I spent time in front of the PC then and cleaned up the e-mails and downloaded photos and then took Mom down to The Glen ... I made a list of what I needed to do and got everything done in an hour ~ Go me!!! I went to Dischem / Clicks ~ for a birthday gift for August!!! How prepared is that!!!??? / Pick 'n Pay for milk and burger patties for dinner / The watch shop for batteries for my watches / Woolies for meat, yoghurt and pork pies for my hunny / Dropped off some glasses in the recycle bin at the one optometrist / Made an appointment to have my eyes tested on Tuesday afternoon at the other optometrist / Popped into PNA to see if they had anything for some wedding invitation samples I need to do. Mom and I then popped past Norma and had a cuppa coffee with her and we were back home by 11h30.
Richard has just arrived home from his ride ~ he says it was really great ~ and I am now going to work on those wedding invitation samples. Hope your weekend has been ultra~special and that the coming week is super productive. See you tomorrow.
