I'm taking a break!
Haahaaa - I didn't have any steam to let off, but my vacuum cleaner went up in smoke this morning instead - it was smoking hot!! It's not actually funny, as will cost me money, but I do see the humor connected to today's challenge about letting of steam!! ☺☺☺☺

Air punches done - I don't have any steam to blow off at the moment, as you know it's just .... love is in the air♥ However, in keeping with the 'punching' theme I thought this poster suitable☺
It's like summer in the middle of winter here - yesterday & today I have the kitchen & lounge doors open. I believe a cold front is due from Thursday, so winter woollies are close at hand. My brisk walk done, I need to continue & finish prep for a talk I'm doing tomorrow for a Seniors Group .... The benefits of Yoga. I want to choose a short sequence of exercises they can do, so that they can experience it. So, less talking, more action, which will be more beneficial to them.
Starting with my early morning yoga class, followed by the talk away, it's back-to-back tomorrow. I've also decided that whilst my relationship is in the beginning stages, I need to free up time. My life is jam-packed full of many things, much I can't shift/change, so I need to be off DC Friday to Sunday - Fridays I'm always across town visiting Dad & teaching yoga, etc. So I'll take a break later today, returning next Monday.
~~**♥♥ Thank you E angel Helen for your early morning visit & wishes ♥♥**~~
Wishing you all a terrific Tuesday & an unexpected pleasant surprise ☺♥
At home, the blender, but for away it would be zip lock bags or small plastic containers for nuts, dried fruit. I don't carry 'meals' with me, only snacks. A banana or naartjie doesn't require a container either.
~~**♥♥ Thank you Helen & Barbara for being my E angels today ♥♥**~~
I had a lovely Skype with my daughter in Sydney earlier & did a load of washing as I believe we'll be without water for 2 days, from tomorrow 8am. I have a client later, then will brisk walk.
Wishing you all a marvelous Monday filled with ♥♥ JOY ♥♥
Thank you all for your lovely comments, thoughts & loving support for my relationship♥
This morning I went for a brisk walk & all day was spent with Clive & late afternoon I visited a neighbor who is suffering from depression. We had a good chat & she's agreed to return to yoga on Tues eve, her daughter will be her backup just for one eve☺
For the past 30 years I've totally believed in myself & my choices. It started with leaving both abusive marriages & also following a spiritual path opposite to my family's wishes.
Thank you for today's Encouragement, angels ~~**♥♥ Helen, Irene R, Sole, Barbara, Joanna, Susan & Kim J ♥♥**~~
Wishing you all a blessed Sunday & believe in yourself ♥☺♥
So that you have an idea of what Clive looks like, here's a photo taken last night, dinner date at Throbbing Strawberry. I had wild mushroom pasta, he had pizza & we shared wine - I ensured he had more than me. He arrived with a bunch of beautiful pink roses. It was a terrific night from beginning to end, with loads of talking, getting to know even more about each other.
Today I had a client for her first 90 min session of body alignment, followed by an inspirational reading/counselling. My 2 precious grandsons are visiting, I had a game of soccer with Kai whilst Kiran napped. A quick post & i'll check in later for your posts.
My bathrooms are cleaned regularly, so this is up-to-date.
Thank you for the shower of E's from angels ~~**♥♥ Helen, Vanetta, Rita H, Irene R, Barbara, Rushley, Sharron & Joy ♥♥**~~
Wishing you all a super Saturday ☺♥♥☺
Easy but great stretching & oxygenating exercise.
Thank you for your early morning E welcomes, angels ♥♥ Helen & Alison ♥♥
The clot in my leg has almost gone. Now for THE news ….
I hope this is not going to be an ‘epic’ for you to read but some background is vital.
I’ve been divorced from my children’s father for 39 years. After 8 years I married my son’s scout master, who turned out to be a monster behind closed doors & divorced him after 2 years. I’ve lived on my own since then, 29 years, but have dated the odd man here & there. 6 yrs ago I subscribed to a dating site for 3 months (much to my children's concern at first ..... don't get in his car, meet in public, don't go to his house, etc – met a few men but nobody for me. My profile is still there, but my message says I’ve been unsuccessful, so I’m busy with projects & wish everyone well.
Every now & then I get a message, but can’t reply unless subscribed. A month ago an interesting man sent a message – 2 weeks later (as a birthday gift from the site) I was given a free week to communicate, which I did with Dan, an amputee, born in Texas, living in SA. We met, no chemistry & great as a pen pal only. Clive was the only other person I sent a message to & after 1 email we had coffee for 2 hours (after I’d put him off 3 times, being the week of my daughter’s hijacking trial).
I had thought ….. ‘let me get this coffee date over with & get back to my normal, happy, organized life. Mmmmmm that didn’t happen …… Clive then took me out for 5 hours on the Sunday & we spent 7 hours together this past Sunday. Tonight is our 4th date, a romantic dinner ☺♥
We’ve spoken non-stop over these few dates & all the boxes are ticked, except 1. So …. in my already ‘full schedule’ I need to find time for Clive, so I know my DC time is going to be limited. This is TOTALLY unexpected!! I hope you all understand…… “Love is in the Air”
Wishing you all a day filled with ♥♥ love ♥♥
Thank you for the shower of welcomes back in my Inbox E angels, how blessed I am ~~**♥♥ Helen, Rita, Irene R, Meezan, Vanetta, Barbara, PAT, Rushley & Sandra ♥♥**~~
A picture from Dad's 90th Celebration yesterday rules over any other I would have posted. With us is my grandson, Kai ☺♥♥ It was a delightful day. He had 94 family & friends attend (mostly from church) for a sit down lunch at the Promised Grill Restaurant. Food was delish - I had grilled hake, butternut & creamed spinach, followed by chocolate mousse & cream ☺☺ The speech I prepared went off well - quite a challenge as seating was all around & I had to project my voice without a microphone. I based it on ... "A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way".
I'll have to think on the spice/herb challenge - may only be able to do it tomorrow. Loads of news & something very unexpected to share tomorrow ~~ suspense!!
Wishing you all a terrific Thursday & count your blessings, we have many☺♥♥
