being thankful

Even though I am not American
I thought I would make a list
12 things
that I'm
thankful for...

First up,the kind of obvious,quite serious,but still very true things...
1.My mother
2.My cat-daughter,Maya
3.Jacques,the love of my life
4.My best friend in the world,Liz
5.The rest of my family
6.Having a job
7.Pictures of my dad - they keep him close to me

and now,the less serious,but no less important,things that I'm
thankful for...

8.Pizza,any kind,anywhere,any time
9.A cold shower after a long hot day
10.Beautiful roses that grow in my 'garden',and pretty up our apartment
11.My new fridge,that still makes my heart very happy
12.Good stuff to watch on tv,when I'm super bored

Happy Thanksgiving to all the American people!

Hope you all had a 
great day
spent with friends,
or any other loved one in your life

I am more than just jealous of this American holiday

I want the great food you all have been
talking about all week

Believe it or not,but I've

Shocking,I know

black cats make everything better

 That last one,that's my favorite!

Today I...

...can't seem to remember how to answer the phone correctly

...adore red pepper hummus

...wrote an exam in my head

....plan to clean the apartment when I get home

....have a 5th cup of coffee

...wish my best friend lived right next door

...have very little work to do

...feel excited for the coming weekend

...wonder why I have so little self-control?

...won't let my snarky co-worker get under my skin

....realise how lucky I am to see my Mom every day thankful that I have a job

...feel very much in love

happy 4 years!


I'm a little late posting about this,seeing as our anniversary was Tuesday,November 10,
but nevertheless,I just wanted to let everyone know just how
much I love this little bugface

He makes me super mad,and super happy,sometimes just minutes
apart from each other
He makes me think,makes me feel,makes me believe more in myself

I don't always know what he sees in me,or why
we were destined to be together
But I never doubt that we were
meant to be together

>3 I LOVE YOU >3

at the end of the rainbow

Dark and ominous sky...not so much.The sun came through,and created this...
A double rainbow!That conveniently ended right at my Mom's house
I looked everywhere,but just couldn't find the pot of gold.

it's a wonderful wednesday

...since it's been raining the whole freaking morning!I adore this type of weather,and so my mood is much better today.Although,I must say,some people at work are irritating the crap out of me,I'm trying to not let them get to me.I think I'm just way past due to get out of town a bit,and relax somewhere that's not here.

Don't get me wrong,I love our little apartment (although I hate the neighbours with a passion),but when you spend all your non-working time in a certain place,you will obviously get tired of that place.So I am looking forward to our one night out of town,which will hopefully be spent with my bestie,getting drunk and dancing our asses off while talking lots of crap,and basically just having loads of fun.

the weekend...

...was not very good.I had trouble with our stupid neighbours (who,though they are all 3 over 50,act like bratty,whiny children) and for some reason my boyfriend and I just weren't on the same page yesterday.This doesn't happen all that often,luckily,but I don't handle bad moods and confrontations well,so whenever someone else (especially my love) is in a very bad mood,it automatically turns my mood sour as well.I hate that about myself.

So I spent nearly the entire day in bed,with Maya,reading a book.The weather was perfect for that,since it rained all day long.Which is not a typical thing to happen in November in my town,so I made the best of the weather and cuddled in bed.Would've loved to have cuddled with my man,but as you read above,that didn't happen.


BUT,I am hopeful this week will be better,since my sister,b-i-l,boyfriend and I are going to Cape Town on Saturday,to visit a friend for her b-day,and to celibrate my boyfriends' b-day (Nov.19) and my best friend's boyfriends' b-day (Nov.17).It's going to be a really big b-day celibration.LOL.Can't wait to see my bestie.It's already been 2 months since we've last seen each other,so I am beyond excited to see her again.There's no one else in this world who can make me as happy as she can,which is saying a lot.

It's the weather

I am in a much better mood today,seeing as it's not as hot as a marathon runner's balls after 20 miles,today.There's this lovely cool wind blowing,it's cloudy and kind of looks like it might rain (but I know it won't).Colder weather just lifts my mood so much,it's really weird.That's why I'm such a raging bitch basically all throughout summer,and parts of spring.

This is not from today,but it's almost what it looks like outside today.Minus the wet road.
No rain yet.Here's hoping!
