Week 62 - Aug 2nd - 8th, 2015 - Start of month 15
Sunday, August 2nd to Saturday, August 8th, 2015
Not in any particular order this week. But we've managed to keep busy again with both office support and MLS duties. The time does pass by so quickly though from one week to the next. It just flies by.
Our Grandson Noah celebrated his sixth birthday on the 7th. He'll be in the 1st Grade this school year and he just got done 'bustin muttin' at the Rodeo at Bear Lake. Good boy, Noah!
We attended Tzaneen District semi-annual conference last Sunday and enjoyed being with members from many of the Branches in the District. And a very lovely YW Choir sang too.
We had to put up one more sign in our flat. This one is for the 'Mission Kitchen', South Africa Branch of the Botswana/Namibia Mission. Melanie does quite a lot of baking and cooking for members, Elders, etc. (me).
Our Afrikaner contractor friend's crew is now building up the basement structure of the servant's quarters in the mansion up the hill a bit from us. We've been watching this go up from the dirt. It'll be the equivalent of a multi-million dollar mansion if it were located in the USA. They dug and jack-hammered for weeks to get this small area excavated so they could begin to build their way out to the top-side.
Melanie decided it was my turn to pose with some of her favorite trees, shrubs, bushes, flowers, and in this case a nice healthy cactus plant. It's healthier than I am for sure and blooming too.
While we were down to the care center visiting our friend Jimmy we saw this group walking outside. Notice the little girl carrying a baby which is wrapped around her back. Just like the mother's do it!
This has become one of my favorite meals now. Chicken ramen noodles with a boiled egg and some chicken breast pieces along with some chopped green onions. Yummmm!
Each morning we love to go on a walk together in our gated secured and guarded community. Here's sort of a series of pictures of some of the homes and things we see as we walk around the area. No doubt it will mean more to us than to you, but at the end we enjoy a brief time on the porch visiting and talking about the day or whatever.
