Can you remember what you did on the weekend of 22-24 October? You never know when you may need an alibi (lol!) so why not join this interesting meme hosted by Gattina from Writers Cramps
It's amazing how dry everthing is in the Free State at this time of the year. Since I've returned from the Sudan, I have also felt dried out, dried up, listless and without direction. However, when we woke up on Saturday morning, the clouds were heavy and grey and by the middle of the afternoon, the heavens opened up and rain poured down. Not only can I literally HEAR the shrubs and grass perking up and growing, but my spirit has been rejuvinated and refreshed. The Lord in all His goodness, has showered me with His blessings and I feel ready to meet the challenge of being back in South Africa again. Amen!
Saturday dawned with an overcast sky. By mid - afternoon it begun to rain and then...
...and rained! We measured 20mm by the evening and the clouds were building up for more rain
Since Tuesday I've started to take Shadow out into the garden. Here he sits in the window and longinly watches everything going on outside. I know he'd love to get into the garden but it's too soon to let him out on his own. For now we go out on the leash
The first time I took Shadow out into the garden, he lay down and rolled around on the ground. I'm not sure whether this is one way of marking his territory or if he just enjoys the feel of the soil
Shadow spends most of the time in the garden sniffing at the flowers and shrubs. Many interesting smells - mostly of other cats - to be investigated
Shadow contemplates his next move up the garden path
Shadow, who has been a flat cat for the past five months, now enjoys having a scratch in the compost in my flower beds
Shadow meets and touches noses with Clarice, my gentlest cat
