We're going home for a visit.

This is a quick post to say that I have been busy packing and cleaning and worrying for the last few days. We leave tomorrow for Denver, Colorado. We will spend the next six weeks between Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. We are leaving the summer here in Cape Town for snow in Denver. This will actually be the third winter we’ll have experienced in one year. We left our home during winter, survived our fist Cape Town winter (similar to where we lived before, but more rainy), and now are going to the USA, which is currently in fall/winter. I feel as though I have been wearing long sleeves all year long!
I made this for my belly dance teacher.
 I have been worrying because we are leaving our babies, our doggies, here . Our landlord, who lives next to us, is taking care of our dogs for free. It is incredibly nice, and one of the only reasons we can afford to go away. What is nice is that although their world will be disrupted greatly, Reeses and Etta will get to play in their own yard and sleep in their own beds. Etta has been refusing to eat the last few days, which has worried us greatly. We are unsure if she is sick, or aware that we are packing to leave. We’ve adjusted a few things and we hope that she will start eating again. We have notified the veterinarian of our leave, so if she does need to be taken in, it’s all set.

There are "my" colors. I adore them.

And now, another crisis steals me away….

This is A Daft Scots Lass' giveaway, all wrapped up!

I’m not sure how often I’ll have internet access, but I’ll try to post about my adventures when I can!

Happy holidays and safe travels! Love the necklace! I hope 2012 sees the beginning of an Etsy store ;)

Enjoy your holidays and family time. I too have been busy visiting friends last seen 5 years ago, and haven´t had acess to internet. Nice that your landlord is looking after your dogs. Because we have 5 cats we also have to get someone to care for them, otherwise it´s expensive to put them into kennels. All the best for 2012.

I got your parcel today. I was so stoked to collect it from the post office and haven't taken it off since. I've had a few people compliment by ring and ask where I got it.


Thanx again and enjoy the snow! Remember to take loads of pictures for us Souf Efrikéns that have to stay at home and enjoy a Christmas by the pool
