Week 33 is open

Is it rude to ask? On the couch again.


I know there are quite a few people who do these quote edits, I do them purely because I like them.  I have started my little Facebook page with famous quotes and also quotes from bloggers attributed to themselves, of course.  I am trying to grow my page.   So, I’m not sure if it is rude to ask people to like my page?  If you don’t think its rude and would like to “like” the box is on the right of this blog.


On to the subject of asking questions.  I have been told that I ask too many questions.  I was quite surprised and quite hurt by this, because my questions are not out of being inquisitive, but rather out of interest and/or concern depending on the situation.
I’m not one who talks about people, so there is no other reason for me to ask questions other than those I mentioned.  I am also not nosy.  The last time I asked a friend a question, well I was rebuffed, and it still hurts really badly…
What is your opinion?

On my bicycle…


The Daily Prompt

Have you made your bucket list? Now’s the time — write about the things you want to do and see before you become dust in the wind.


Throughout the years I have been much of an armchair traveler – and also a traveler in books.  My favourite programs are the travel ones, so it was quite amazing, and I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to travel outside of Africa.
Last year my family and I had the opportunity to visit family in Germany, whilst there we had the chance to visit a few other places.  I have realised that I now actually have a bit of a travel bug.  I want to travel and see as many places as I possibly can.  I absolutely adored Amsterdam and London, and would love to go back there again for a second visit, although there are also many more other places waiting for me…

Do you know anything about dreams?


(I used the above photo as I don’t have any Lily photos)
I seem to dream such a lot lately.  Some of the dreams stay with me for days.  My latest “stay with me dream” is as follows:
I am walking in my back garden and suddenly hundreds of Arum Lilies appear.  Their colours are the most amazing shades of purple and blue that I’ve ever seen.  I try to take photos of the Lilies, but as I get closer the blues and purples seem to be moving and flowing into each other.  It was so exquisite that in my dream I had to put my camera down, as it could not capture what my eyes were seeing?
Do you think possibly had any meaning?

My Entry: Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge.


I know that this is not a well taken photo, but I thought I’d share it anyway.  I found it quite ironic that it looks as though the little birds embroidered on the cushion appear to be watching HRH so sweetly, whilst back at the ranch, I have to get him a little bell collar…
As for the embroidered bugs on the other pillow, don’t know why, but I like it :)

“You’re too short to be so cheeky”

People  016

“You’re too short to be so cheeky”

He told her almost every day.

She tried to come up with funny quips,

To say something back – in some way

She said things about dynamite,

and how she was perfect quicker than most,

but that didn’t help as he replied

that she should stand on a post.

He was never at a loss of words

And had more replies than most.

But, one day he said again

“You’re too short to be so cheeky”

And she said “Well, I don’t care”

He stopped in his tracks,

and all he could do was stare

She told him that she might be short,

But that she was very cute…

He stared at her a while and said

“Well that I can’t refute”

True story.
