The transition to Summer seems to happen overnight. One moment the windows are firmly shut against the chill, the next they're wide open to allow the warm breeze to filter through rooms where air hangs heavy with heat.

We were fortunate to visit the Kruger Park for Baro...

We're back home after a really good time away compounded by the fact that in the Tankwa Karoo there is no connectivity, vast vistas of beautiful scenery and...silence. Arriving back to Johannesburg was an assault to the senses but saved by the fact we were in our own h...

We have had a few really chilly days this month - with heavy (much needed) rains in the Cape and snow in Southerland and other parts of the country it has been a stay at home to be warm time. The good thing is that there is time to sit and complete projects, brain-stor...

While going away is special I find that coming home is comforting if a little muddled as one settles back into the life. I missed my own bed and linen, instant access to books and notes from my daughter, I did NOT miss the constant pull of the internet. Being in the wi...

What a wonderful start to 2019. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary early February and filled a weekend with family gatherings, joyful laughter and sincere friendship. We started the celebrations with a Shabbat dinner at David and Miriam's home with family and f...
