Can you remember what you did over the weekend of 19 and 20 March? You never know when you might need an alibi. Gattina of Writer Cramps hosts this fun meme. Do pop over to her blog if you can.
On Friday I finally made my home-made muesli. My sister-in-law, Shelley, sent me the recipe and once Grant brought home my natural honey, I was able to make this delicious breakfast cereal. I will post the recipe in a while.
When I returned to my desk, I spotted this bird through the window. It's Ross' Turaco and you can only see the red under its wings in flight. Unless it preens and stretches for me!
Later that afternoon, James - who works for Sharda - asked if he could trim my lawn. He still had fuel left in the tank after trimming Sharda's lawn and wanted to help me. Wasn't that sweet of him? Typically in Africa you wear your protective eyewear on top of your head
On Saturday afternoon, Grant took me for a ride to the stream below the office. After this week's rain, the river level is up. We spotted and photographed birds here again
On Sunday morning Grant and I set out on our normal birding trip through the mine. This is typical of the bushveld where we stop if we see or hear birds. It's greened up incredibly since last Sunday. Isn't it stunning?
A pair of Egyptian Geese
I tried a different dish today: Chickpea and Paneer cheese salad. I downloaded the recipe off the Internet but tweaked it so much it hardly resembles the original! I will post this later as well
