sunday afternoon and this is sure a year of breaking records. firstly, SNOW, then this morning -25. And we are still surviving. we are going to be introduced as members @ Family Church tomorrow evening. for that we had to do 10 teachings. quess who did about all of them at #99? yes, but now its done and it was a good experience and now we are part of the family. J went to his first RAIDER game last night (ice hockey) and said it was good. they have this hype thing going and that makes it a memorable experience. vir eens is ek nou moeg vir die rooi taal en ek nou maar sorrie vie die paar engelse wat nou nie meer kan verstaan nie. ek hoop dit gaan goed met julle. almal is seker besig met jaar einde want ek hoor nie so baie van daai kant af nie. toe-toe, tik ‘n vinnige hallo. ek besef ook dat ons suid afrikaners is glad nie so ingestel op die internet soos hier nie, seker maar omdat dit duur is daar en beperk. en hier is dit vrek goedkoop en 24 uur. ek betaal R150 per maand vir onbeperkte hoer as hoespoed konneksie. dis baie lekker. uiteindelik het ek vir cobus en dagan ‘n foto van die dokte en sy kar. ek hoop dit inspireer julle om ‘n komment te los want ek geniet dit so om te lees. kersfees is om die draai en ek het nie kaartjies gemaak die jaar nie en dis ‘n baie groot frustrasie want ek wou een doen met ons in die sneeu. nou’s dit al amper my pa se verjaarsdag en ek het nog nie eers ‘n foto nie. maar ek sal my dinge moet priotiseer want dit voel asof ek te veel dinge het om te doen en te min tyd.
tot volgende keer. liefde en soene. wf
Hallo…Its Friday eve and I am sitting on my bed busy with 2 peas. I love that site. posted some l/o on there and had wonderful response. anyway, j’s at the walk in and says its hectic. today was a computerday for me. i scanned a lot of pages and that takes time. last night we had friends over for a dinner … i made butternut soup and spagetti bolognese. was a great time. i have not done any scrapbooking in the past 2 days and hop to come around to it after i posted this message. i am bursting with ideas!! i went through some of my older layouts and I am very excited about what i am doing at the moment. i want to enter for Creating keepsakes “hall of fame” but (as i discovered on 2peas) so is the whole north america. but i am positive and would love to do work for the hof. this week has been a blurr for me, as if i have’nt been home enough, busy, busy, busy. but hopefully this weekend will be a little quieter and i just want to have peace!!! . So, goodnight, sleep tight. i am posting another page. WRITE A COMMENT!! love wf.xxx
WOW! we sure had an interesting night. at 3 both of us were wide awake and eventually got up. j phoned his family and i scrapbooked till 6:15. i am so happy with what i did and i just finished this page. i just love it (because i love them) what is it about this hobby that drives me to totally flowers? please can someone answer me (she cried!!) . it’s still snowing and guess what? the weather.com (see my links) got it right this time. earlier today it was snowing and the sun was shining. i love the snow. listening to m.w smith and the song is i have never been unloved. its great. thanks for the comments!!!!! (HOOT-HOOT) i got them in my blogger-behind-the-scenes-box so that i can look at them before i publish it. i really love comments. so, this being the 3rd l/o for the day, i am fairly satisfied but there’s some more in me. tomorrow we are having a dinner party for 8 and i am looking forward to cooking something nice. maybe soup and a shepherds pie or something. we have lamb here too, although the canadians dont like it so much. have i ever mentioned that the movies (5 theatres) are just a block from our house? we saw chicken little last friday and it waas only OK, but it was a trailor that made me cry: 8 below. a disney movie about 8 snow dogs. its a true story and totally a must see. j is missing matisse terribly and he would sometimes just tear up when he sees a dog like M. i definitely said goodbye properly and know that he is very much loved where he is now- with maryna- but i think j didnt sayhis goodbye like he ought to have and now have some hartseer. (for lack of a better word). anyway, wanted to log in quickly, almost time to fetch tia. enjoy the day and remember that ek sommer baie verlang. nou klink ek soos jana wat haar tale mix.
Yes, still snowing. The funny thing is that its like dust, just whirling around in the wind. Can’t even make a snowball. Funny thing #2 is that the wheather didn’t predict it. and its not -23 like they said its going to be. we all huddled this morning in our winter jackets, frantic search for lost mittins and then… it was too warm! PA’s weather is really not too bad. the river is iced and snow covered and it seemed to happen over night. beautiful. look at this gorgeous picture. its our electric fireplace on the main floor. i took some pictures but all of them blurred.bing. so, i’ll take some later with a tripod. maybe i’ll include one or 2 more. the light wreath was bought at IKEA. cool shop. huge and with the most wonderful bargains. we got the most adorable little pudding bakkies there for only 50 cent (canadian of course) johann loots (alias calvin/ old joe) said it looks like it cost only 50 cent. quess where he got his ice cream. LOL(Laugh out loud). ek skryf al die afkortings net vir my ma want sy ken dit nog nie. so ma moet gou leer!!!! 🙂 (dien ma die smile?) Anyway, I’m still onto 2peas. saw l/o there from a girl named hanni and was totally inspired. i have so no clue where scrapbking is going to end. so now i want to get into it making a 100 pages of just sketches and ideas and fun and art. I have to get out of the box otherwise… havent done anything tday bc elbie and eurika visited and drj had a few other ideas for me. i just totally adore him. he is such a charmer! since we have arrived in C, he took over the management of the finances and its been such a blessing to me. i just feel he makes the $ so he can decide how to spend it. so, its been a challenge to stay off it cause he forgets to pay stuff… but he is coming around quickly. he is such fun. we laugh all the time and he is so full of jokes and tease me alot. i love it. so its 01:47 in the afternoon. just wanted to say hi (hope anybody reads it…if you do LEAVE A COMMENT!!!) i’ll see if there is a pic thats not blurred and post it too. this website is the easiest thing since sliced bread and if anyone want to know more, email me. will write again. love and a kiss… wf
Maandag aand… today was a very frustrating (in the end) but productive day for me. I did 3 pages and are very happy with them. The frustrating part was the scanner that didnt scan the 2 pieces the same and I am just to tired to do it all again, so here is the pages I did today minus the shade difference thats not there in real life. so let me know what you think. j’s been home for an hour and a half and that’s how long i’ve been sitting infront of the laptop tring to figure “stiching”out. easier said than done. will write again tomorrow. goodnight. love wf.
maandag middag al. Look at the snow. Funny actually, as the weather channel didn’t predict any snow. We have a standing joke about that now. I love the snow. I just love it. It looks like powder falling down and then the wind comes and play hide and seek. And it’s so quiet when it snows. Last night was my fav tv program: grey’s anatomy. Its brilliant. and last night J was called out at 3:30 to the o.r. Bummer. He only came home at 06:30. Then dr calvin wondered where he was for gym. I sincerely hope that the snow stays around longer this time. but it will, I am sure as it’s getting colder. It’s like living in your icebox. but its not that bad.
news from basic grey is i’m not one of the 25. bummer. luckely i logged onto 2peasinabucket.com and on their message board (the pub) was all the news and tears. there was more than 560 album entries and i became too confident. sucker me. however, i am determined to to more and better work for creating keepsake hall of fame. i am not scared. and A taught us somethings about rejection. it’s really not so bad. on the message board at 2 peas, now that “snot en trane”and it helped me cope better with the news. fall down 7 times, stand up 8. i want to include a pic of the album cover. My next project is finishing my mom’s album and sending it to them. Then I want to make an album on my man DH (darling husband) and our love letters. I think it will be great. Also on my to do list is getting the office in place. I like to run a tight ship in that dept…something like a 30 second office where one can find any documentation in 30 secs. at the moment its rather a 30 min office (wat se jy daarvan Ryna). so i want to do that this week. also get to my fall layouts. i did some beautiful 1 photo l/o (lay out) for each girl, but want to s/b (scrapbook) the rest ASAP. As it is our 34th year we are memorising Psalm 34. Its so wonderful. Before I say goodbye, let me bless you with a part of it: I WILL bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psa 34:2 My life makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble and afflicted hear and be glad. Psa 34:3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together. Psa 34:4 I sought (inquired of) the Lord and required Him [of necessity and on the authority of His Word], and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. [Ps. 73:25; Matt. 7:7.] .. If you ponder it with me you will see that He is faithful and will deliver us of all our fears. jippea, great news. tot more, baie groete en liefde. wf
09:20 Just woke up and weather says its -4 outside. We are still getting use to the sun rising so late. Anyway, Jaco’s off to walk-in and the kids and I are off to church. Just have to get dressed quickly. Will write again.
