Stone

Happy Sunday, Erbody!

If you’ve been following me for a long time, you know sometimes I write something resembling poetry. If you want to read any of it then help yourself to my Prose category 🙂

I don’t really think of myself as much of a poet but I enjoy good imagery and it’s quite an outlet, creating imagery relating to my own experiences.

Stone

So tempted to lift it.

To take a peak

In hopes that what lies beneath is different to what was there before.

But like the creatures that crawl about beneath the stone, we too are creatures of habit.

Our patterns remain more or less the same. We scavenge for nourishment, warmth and safety – in each other.

We are the creatures and we also have the power to lift the stone, to satisfy our curiosity, to see.

But what lies there is very likely exactly the same as what lay there the very first time we lifted the stone.

And that is why

Some stones are better left unturned.

I hope you enjoyed that! And I hope you are rested up and ready for the new week! I’ll see you on Hump Day😘

Thanks for reading!

Wacky Wednesday

Hi Everyone! I hope the week is treating you well🙂

It’s the 2nd week of my school holiday and I’m still loving it😎 Lots of gym and relaxing. I will have to ease back into work in the next 2 weeks though, but that is future me’s problem!

My mom came up for a visit from the Eastern Cape, my home province. I love that my mom never allowed the delays and detours of life stop her from having the things that she wanted for herself, but that’s a post for another day🙂

Today, we adventured the city of Johannesburg tourist style! I love this city, its vibrance and beauty. I will never leave! Ok, maybe when I retire or when I visit other cities, lol. Johannesburg has come a long way and we can be very proud of ourselves!

Show me some sights from the city in which you live! I’d love to see😊

7 Colours Sunday Lunch

Happy Sunday, dear readers! I hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend!

My favourite way of ending off my weekend is making a beautiful Sunday late lunch; yum yum!

Now, if you’re South African, you’ve heard of seven colours; a home-cooked colourful meal made up of a starch, meat and a variety of vegtables and or salads.

I’m gonna be honest; I have no idea what all the 7 colours are and I was raised to make this meal every Sunday and on special occasions😂 I can really only think of green, orange/yellow, red, white and brown; that’s only 5 colours. For me, if I have a green, orange/yellow, meat and starch, I’ve made 7 colours! Help me out here, if you’re South African, Please fill us in in the comments; WHAT ARE THE SEVEN COLOURS?!

My mom is visiting for the next 6 days or so and the older I’ve become, the more I treasure my time with her and the more I take in every little piece of advice she gives me about every little thing.

Today’s golden nugget is decifering the best tasting butternut or pumpkin off the rack. According to my mom, this 👇is not it! She was right, I boiled this, mashed it up added butter and sugar, and man, it was still terrible!

The rule is very simple when it comes to vegtables. The darker the colour, the better! I’ve learned my lesson and I’ll keep my eye out for better pumpkin in the future because, damn, this was terrible and I never want to taste it again!

Now about those 7 colours; South Africans! Comment below! What are 7 colours made up of?

Lyrical Challenge – Day 3

Happy Sunday, dear readers!

I’m so sad! Today is my last installment of the Lyrical Challenge 😕

The Lyrical Challenge rules are simple:

1. Thank the person who nominated you,

2. Share your favourite song/lyrics,

3. Nominate 3 other bloggers.

In the spirit of Sunday, I thought I’d share one of my favourite songs by Hillsong. A golden oldie! I love the imagery in the chorus! Enjoy it with me😊

Shout to the Lord by Hillsong Australia

Shout to the Lord

All the earth let us sing

Power and majesty

Praise to the King

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar

At the sound of Your name

I’ll sing for joy at work of your hand

Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

My nominations:

Patrick

Insomniac Writer

Lyrical Challenge – Day 2

I’m back! Wow, OJ didn’t tell me how tough it is to choose just one song to share! That problem comes with being a word lover, I suppose. I hope you’ve checked out her cool blog though🙂. And I hope you are enjoying these posts as much as I am😊

A quick recap; the Lyrical Challenge works as follows:

1. Thank the person who nominated you,

2. Share your favourite song/lyrics,

3. Nominate 3 other bloggers

So, today, I picked lyrics from a song by Davido. It’s in Nigerian Pidgin, I think. Anyway, he describes a woman I’d like to be: an attractive woman with no interest in material things and chases after his heart. Love really does boil down to two people who want to be together. The rest is just decorative!

Aye by Davido
Cause you want my love o
She no want designer
She no want Ferarri
She say na my love o
You belong to meee
And I belong to her o
Oh babyyy!
You go killie somebody
They say love is blind
But I dey see am for your eyes o (o ee aa)

My nominations for today:

Afro Chic

SkyLarity

Almandyne

I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend😘

Lyrical Challenge – Day 1

Afternoon Everyone!

As you know, Twitter is where cool things live and the 3 day Lyrical Challenge is no different! I couldn’t wait for Sunday so I thought I would start today until Sunday!

I had to be part of this, so I got myself challenged by OJ’s Pride. She has a great blog, you should check it out! Thanks so much for this opportunity, OJ!

So the rules to The Lyrical Challenge are simple:

1. Thank the person who nominated you,

2. Share your favourite song/lyrics,

3. Nominate 3 other bloggers.

Ok, let’s do this! My first song is actually an interlude so it’s short:

Newer Balance (freestyle) by Jhenè Aiko
I don’t need no other guy
Ever since you caught my eye
Oh you’re the only one I see
The only one that’s for me, my baby
And it would really be a shame
If you are just running game on me
Oh, baby please, baby please tell me it ain’t so, oh no
I got a strange feeling
That maybe I am dealing with a smooth player
Ooh, I’m praying

That you are who you are saying
Hope you are who you are saying

My 3 nominations are:

Beaton

Nshami14

Tina

Thanks for reading 🙂 I’ll be back with a new song tomorrow!
