Time out

Up until now the winter has not really bothered me, except for the darkness that creeps in so quickly just after sunset.  But I know that the only constant in life is change – things will change, always!

And so it is that today the wind has a chill in it and the weather forecasters use foul language like ‘very low temperatures’, ‘extreme cold’ and ‘sub-zero night temperatures’ when they talk about the weather for the upcoming weekend.  As it happens we are heading to the Drakensberg for the weekend that looked like this on our last visit:

This picture was taken from the top of the koppie to the west of the cabin and if you squint and look carefully, you will see the cabin and the kombi down by the stream.

and you know how busy I will be this weekend 🙂  A fire like this in the fireplace does not feed itself you know!  Every now and then someone actually has to get up from the couch to poke it and add more wood.  It’s tough, but someone has to do it!

I need this time out like a baby needs milk and I intend making the most of it.  Who knows, we might even get snowed in… in which case we will have to postpone next Saturday’s class  I promise to take lots of pictures and post them on my blog next week together with our layout for Saturday 16 June.

So, whatever you do this weekend – cover up, stay out of the cold and look after yourselves!
