read a book
read a magazine or newspaper

go to the museum

play games

and look very very cute
it's amazing how pieces of plastic and wire and other bits can connect you to the whole wide world

Freshly Found

Denise from Freshly Found hand makes beautiful recycled/re purposed items, I adore her work with old books, ties and sari's as well as her crochet skills, isn't it lovely?

the happiest colour in the world

is national geographic yellow!
I'm sure we all have our favorites, this particular shade, for me, is not one to be worn but one that must adorn a house, a room, and which adds instant joy to the space...
in all honesty I prefer a grey palette for my living spaces, but this yellow, it does good things for my Serotonin levels, what is your happy colour?
there are many clever people out there who collect and group colours, here is one of them...

this last picture comes from the National Geographic website, it was taken in Ireland, i think it's simply breath taking
May you find a little thing that makes you happy this week...

little india

Durban has the largest population of Indian people living outside of India.
so that means that there are an extraordinary amount of gorgeous ladies in their more gorgeous sari's, and lots of bling and head nods/shaking, and accented English, and curried everything and in little doses I'm finding it cool and interesting but in large doses I think it would be much too much....
so lovely Indian ladies, i think you are beautiful but very intimidating

work, live, eat, love

the annual trip to the in-laws complete
leaves me wondering why all we seem to do there is eat

admittedly i always end up doing dishes
and hubby ends up filthy and grubby

we visited with friends and family and babies
petted the dogs and discussed the treatment for rabies

it was random and hectic but also fun
