As you know, on Sunday we participated in the
HOSPICE WALK FOR CHARITY
here in Johannesburg. It was quite hot during the walk and very tiring, so I took Mom's advice and have spent the last day just sleeping it off!!!
Well, my mate, the little 'squirt' - TOFFEE - decided it was a good idea to sleep it off too! (Never mind the fact that he DIDN't participate in the walk!!!)
Well at least he doesn't bother me when he's sleeping, so I am going to play the "Tour Guide" today and show you a few pictures of some fun things we have seen in the past couple of days in Johannesburg...
It's JACARANDA season and the Jacaranda trees are ALL in full bloom. Our city is a pretty picture of purple flowering trees!
Some of the main roads are also lined with these pretty trees!
Here is a little 'makeshift' roadside stall where curios are on sale to tourists.
(Beadwork is a big thing here in South Africa and you will find these types of stalls all over the place!)
Weaving is also popular as a craft!. Here are some
on sale at the side of a road.
Another interesting thing happened last evening which disturbed my quiet reverie...
It is 'rainy season' here in South Africa at the moment and that means
When it rains, they seek shelter in our houses. Although they are NOT neurotoxic, Mom is a bit freaked out by them. Well, yesterday evening, while Mom was cooking supper, I heard a shriek from the kitchen. Us dogs ran to the kitchen to see what was happening and there she stood, like one of your halloween contraptions...
The spindly dude had casually strolled into her working space. She wasn't impressed at all -stood there all shivering and useless!! Luckily "the Boss" came to the rescue and was about to throw the spindly dude outside, when Mom proclaimed in a broken voice,
"Wait! Flashy beast!"
This guys is about 15cm long...rather large I'd say!!!
AND he looks scary too!
Dear friends, will this suffice as our 'Halloween' contribution to bloggie-land?
