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.

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.

Here’s mine for this week:

Our foundation is dug and cemented and filled and whatever else you are supposed to do with it. A guy that works with Henk had buildt a fishpond and little river, so he had some grass that we could plant so long.

We fetched it yesterday and placed the blocks like a checkerboard. The idea being that the grass will grow to cover the gaps, then cover the whole lot with fertile earth and the established grass will push and grow through the layer. In theory. Let’s see how it goes.

Soos Belowe in ‘n meer omvattednde post, hier is ‘n paar foto’s van my Rittelfees 2009 experience. Verskoon tog asseblief die swak kwaliteit – my Cybershot het finaal die gees gegee, en my LG chatterbox is nie bekend vir sy kie-kie neem vermoë nie.

pretDraf

Die Saterdag oggend pretdraf. Ek hoor die musiek buite en dink  ‘Hectic, Rittelfees begin vroeg vandag”. Meanwhile was dit ‘n paar die-hards wat om die blok draf. Eindstreep was by WesGemeente Kerk.

OppadGrondeToe

Oppad gronde toe. Relatief naby parkering gekry by die begrafplaas se ingang.

tente_2

Deel van die gees wat in die dorpe heers. Orals staan tente, opblaas swembadjies, vuurtjie brand. Lekker man.

dieToue

Die laaaang tou by die ingang. Kind in ‘n pram het toe sy voordeel. Net so 5 minute gewag toe kry ons ‘n pass na héél voor – bypass sommer ook security checks.
