This is .....

..... as close as we got to seeing lion!

A painting in the loung/sitting room at the chalet we stayed in! ummmm better luck next time.
Take care and have fun with all the challenges out there.

No …… I wasn’t ……

…….. abducted by Aliens!
Hubby and I disappeared into the Pilanesberg National Park for a week. What bliss! Not too many people and few cars. Total peace, quiet and harmony. If we were any more relaxed, we would have been in reverse LOL!

These are just a few of the photos I took.

Giraffe licking a salt slab

White Rhino

The rain clouds were gathering …………………………..
but very little action! 5 and a half drops of rain and then the sky cleared.
Pity, because there is nothing as special or exciting as
a full blown storm in the middle of the bush.

This was taken just as we were leaving a water hole.

Ah well, it’s over for another year. There is nothing like the African Bush to rejuvenate mind, body and soul.
Take care, be kind to yourself and enjoy the rest of the weekend. And thank you for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments.

Stop the ……

…………… the world, please ………….. I need to get back on …………….!

Where the b*&&$!* h*## (lost in translation) has the time gone? I go a surfing of my favourite blogs, think oooh that’s a great challenge and when I look again the next challenge, from the same blog is ‘nipping me in the bud’
Cora thank you for this image. She will be the main ingredient for a special card to a special person.

Oh what can I say June This image is just so wonderful and will pop up very often. Here I printed her out on a piece of calico and "Pinked" her with flocking
I'm just coming out of hibernation, but nature is cruel. Just when I think Spring is showing signs, it gives me a fat smack, which says 'back to thermal undies missy'. I must admit I am tired of looking like the Michelin 'Woman'.
Take care everyone, enjoy the last few weeks of summer (because it's heading MY WAY, and hehehe will be here for the next 9 months or so......)
Love to all and thank you for stoping by and leaving such great messages and comments. I do appreciate.

Yip, Lots ....

...To Do ... Hilda issued the challenge to Recycle. So I did! The Knorr cardboard was the base. The next bit was left overs (no, not the mince!) the bit left over from the wedding invitations that I made for a friend, really, is food on everbody's mind?!?!?!

The lady's face was a smudged, almost landed in the bin image and so almost gone and the dragonflies are from the packaging packets from Crafty Individuals. That's two out of three. Does that qualify, Hilda/Sam?
Have a great week everyone and do what you love and enjoy and thanks for visiting and thanks so much for your comments. As fellow bloggers, you know that it means a great deal.
