I live in the Southern Hemisphere and it's full summer here now. But we had a BBQ after watching a match on Rugby World Cup on the telly during October.
With technology these days, we don't receive many things by snail mail. However, last week I received two Christmas cards in our post office box. The card on the left from my dear blogger friend, Penny, Snap That, sent from Canada. And the one on the right from my birder-blogger friend, Margaret, Birding for Pleasure, sent all the way from Northern Ireland. Penny and I met up in 2011 in Kenya and have mailed each other for years. Penny has been a stalwart friend, albeit online and supports me in prayer; we also share a lot of each having a parent in an old age home. I haven't met Margaret yet (note I say "yet" as I believe we'll meet one day, maybe at a common birding site!) but she has supported me in prayer and with encouraging words. She also prods me gently to take part in this interesting meme! Thank you, my two beautiful blogger friends.
A CUP OF CHEER:
Watching rugby is a religion in South Africa. A tradition followed by many. Watching Rugby World Cup is no exception and we all watched the matches every Saturday evening.
Even the dog, Skabenga got to know the time the family sat down and bellowed and yelled at the TV screen!
Once again, I imagine the word prompt should have me posting about Christmas lights. But I love sunrise and sunset. And this was the sun rising - with the street lights still ablaze - over a township along the N1 National Freeway between Cape Town, Bloemfontein and Johannesburg.
