Friday Libré and I visited the SPCA in Stellenbosch... that was a first –oh my goodness, what an experience!
Sad and emotionally overwhelming, but I strangely felt surrounded with love... Animal love. Obviously animals have a lot of love to share, but I guess I didn’t realize how unconditionally they share that precious love. Circumstance doesn’t determine whether they give love or not... That is the extremely sad part... Sad that there are people out there who find it so easy to abuse animals. And even though the poor little innocent bundles of love went through something horrible, their eyes are still filled with love without limit. Their eyes beg you to take them home just to be with someone they can love.
I really felt the need to take (another!) pet home, but I know that 2 dogs, 2 cats and a budgie is enough for now. Maybe I will change my mind in a week’s time... When it comes to me and animals, you never know... He he!
A combination of semi-precious stones, crystals, ribbon and a felt brooch. Carla will be selling these at the Stellenberg Christmas Gift Market, so keep your fingers crossed that this will be the start of something big!
This weekend I did a lot of things I have NEVER done before... 1. I baby sat for one of my best friends... 2. I changed a poop diaper!!! 3. I cut my friends’ fringe and it looks pretty cool! 4. I got sick on the side of the road... Stomach bug galore!!! 5. I felt the extreme urge to punch an extremely stupid guy in the face, but I didn’t do it…Not like I ever will... 6. I won a game of pool, and... 7. I played one game of darts AND won!!!
So after all of this, I feel like I am almost ready to have my own children, but the giving birth part is still something I don’treally feel like going through, especially if the cramps feel like the ones I had just before I got sick. Secondly, I am so grateful for having Sarel as my soon to be husband, because I realized (again) that there are a bunch of silly, silly, super silly guys out there... O my hat! Thirdly, I think I have a little bit of ball sense... He-he.
Carli invited us to her first birthday party on Saturday morning. It was great spending some time with our friends and their little ones. And it made me wonder if we will ever have enough energy to have our own children. What if we get a little hyper-active monster? I guess monster is not the right word to use, but you know what I mean... Looking at these photographs, I feel relieved because I know that Sarel will be the best dad in the world!
Marchand de Goede is one of our very special, close friends, and because he will be our wedding photographer, I spent some time looking at the photographs on his website. His incredible talent for capturing the perfect moment always strikes me and I can’t help but look forward to see what our wedding photos will look like! The photograph of Amelie’s little toes is my favorite, it actually brings tears to my eyes... Incredible!!! Things like these makes me extremely excited about our wedding day. I can’t freaken wait!!!
