Tracy: “…and I really want a Twista Choppa Pro, but not for Christmas. It can chop and whip – it has 2 attachments”

Henk: “But you have one.”

Tracy: “No, I have a Braun multi mix”

Henk: “Ja, so why do you want a Twista Choppa Pro?

Tracy: “For the same reason I want garden solar lights,  and haven’t complained about juicing lemons by hand – it doesn’t use electricity!”

Early morning on our way to Cape Town.

Tracy: “I need coffee.”
Henk: “You have to get decaf”
Tracy: “But I want espresso. Do you think you can get that in decaf?”
Henk: “That’s like wanting dry water.”

Here’s mine for this week:

Went to water the future lawn yesterday. Lili brought her gieter with. Henk spent more time refilling it than watering the rest of the grass. Lili used toddler logic – water the bricks so that they will grow into walls… or some such – who knows how those rainbow cogwheels behind her dove eyes work.

A bit of the foundation is visible – the plinth to be exact. The builders have poured the floor and started on some walls.

and I keep on changing my mind about the bathroom layouts. 😉

Here’s mine for this week:

We visited the in-laws on the farm this weekend. It was also their annual wyk bazaar. About 9 families hold a fund raiser for their church. The total was over R42 000!
Later the afternoon we went to check up on some sheep and see if there is any sign of lynx up in the koppies. Henk and I posed by a dinosaur egg.

There are hardly any sharp boulders up there. Cause of the extreme temperatures the rocks heat up and the outer layers flake off leaving sound shapes. I love the colours of the boulders. Not too clued up on the science involved, but I imagine it’s due to oxidizing metals.

I edited the image with Picsay on my phone – adjusted the size, exposure and contrast. It was actually one of those washed out over-bleached sunny days.

Tracy: “So, do you know the story of Alice?“
Henk: “No”

Henk: “So what are we watching?”
Tracy:Alice in WonderlandTim Burton’s version”
Henk: “OK”

After 5 mins.

Henk: “Didn’t you say this was a Tim Burton movie?”
Tracy: “Yes. Why?”
Henk: “So where are the funny creatures and stuff.”
Tracy: “They’re still coming”
Henk: “But this looks like an Austin flick.”
Tracy: “I know. They need to explain the back story; the creatures will still come”

Few minutes later

Henk: “I don’t think this is a Tim Burton movie. Where’s Johnny Dep?”
Tracy: “There, the white rabbit just rushed by. The creatures are coming. Hush. ”

Alice FINALLY enters wonderland, drinks the Drink Me, eats the Eats Me, and scrambles through the little door.

Henk: “AHA! A crooked tree and it’s looks dark and eerie. This IS a Tim Burton movie”
Tracy: * face palm *

Here’s mine for this week:

There is a gap between this Sunday and the previous Sunday entry. Henk had a brain-fart: decided to dig up the area where we had put the grass squares, embed the grass in the hole, and cover it all with dirt. My job was fertilising and watering.

It actually worked. The grass was pushing through the dirt. Here, in the pic, Henk is sorting out the garden hose so I can water the grass, and Amelia is playing a game of picking up rocks that fell on the foundation-cement-moat and relocating them.
