Any other time, I would have cowered and silently disappeared into the night but I am now too old to play that game so I am being the adult that I am and I stand here before all of you asking to be excused for my unexpected, albeit self-imposed, hiatus. I am officially back from hibernation just in time for Spring in a week’s time. Seven days should suffice to prepare me to be my cheerful, carefree, sunshiny bright self.
And here is how I plan to catch up…
Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenges!
Around the corner
Have you seen this baby gracefully gliding as it takes the corner? It is a beauty!
I love cars. They’re those things that make go “Ooh… aah…!” when they whizz swiftly before me. The car (above) is definitely the better thing to see on a street corner than a ‘lady’, right? But, sometimes, I do stand on the road side, not far from the corner.
Road trip corners
Traveling–road trips included–gives me a whole lot of satisfaction many things can’t.
More often than not, we encounter the unusual when we travel.
Then, there are those that demand attention!
Cars are one of my ‘shiny’ stuff that distract me without fail. I am almost like a man in a woman’s body. I don’t know much about engines and horsepower and all that but I do appreciate power. I have also learned to love the rotary engine.
My baby no more
There are a lot more cars I wish I had or at least I could take for a spin. When I find them, I steal shots of them. 🙂
Cakes are my ‘Ooh, shiny’ stuff, too
But, even better than cars and cakes are SHOES! They are not only ‘shiny’ to me but I can drool over them, especially my favorite Jimmy Choo.
Shoe Love Affair
The last time I got myself Jimmy Choo shoes (I only had two pairs), I got them from a friend who was in Europe. This time, I ordered online as Jimmy Choo had a sale. It was delivered direct from the UK to South Africa. This was a momentous event for someone with a shoe love affair, especially with Jimmy. I was so ecstatic and excited about my new babies that I did not notice at all that hubby bought a new big screen UHD TV that could have bought another pair of Jimmy–on normal price!
However, my best ‘shiny’, that which can never be ignored by yours truly is appropriate ‘above’: the sky, with its sunset and moonlight and clouds. I’m like a crazed paparazzi when the sky beckons.
Sunsets and sky
It’s a catch up. 🙂
Good night to all of you, from me and sunny South Africa!
