30 Minutes in the Life: April 2017

As I mentioned in my last blog, I recently flooded the house.  The horror of the water quickly turned to Adrenalin as I threw towels all over the floor to try and dry up the inch deep water that was now going down the stairway.  Wet towels are not fun to pick up and having picked up at least 30 and the moving furniture…

30 Minutes in the Life: March 2017

My blog is going to be a little different this month.  Instead of 30 minutes of photo’s I am re-editing old photo’s and doing 30 minutes of thoughts. When we moved to the USA from South Africa in 2001, we moved as a 4 member family.  While there were a number of South Africans living here we had no family.  Richard thought he had…

30 Minutes in the Life: January 2017

I started blogging with this group of ladies in July 2013.  Time goes quickly when you are having fun.  I am thankful for each of these ladies and for the encouragement and inspiration they give me each month. It has been a wonderful journey. For this months blog I decided to go to the local Japanese Gardens to be part of their Oshogatsu: A…

30 Minutes in the Life: December Festive 5

Well I am not sure that the circle blog is going to happen this month.  We all seem a little behind and overwhelmed with all the Christmas happenings.  By the time this goes live, Christmas will have happened, but I would still like to take the time to wish you a safe and happy Christmas Season.  May 2017 be a wonderful year for you…

30 Minutes in the Life: November 2016

It is so hard to believe that we are approaching the end of the year.  July to August, I slept, watched movies and read.  Two months gone just lying on the bed.  Then it was back to work, but not back to life. Progress post surgery has been slow.  While I tried some short walks they have really been short.  Today I decided to…

30 Minutes in the Life: October 2016

I am not sure where this month has gone, but 30 Minutes in the Life is live again.  This month I actually got out and took photo’s.  For the past 3 months ever since I had foot surgery, Richard has wanted to go off road bicycle riding.  I have not felt up to going anywhere, but he could have gone.  I think he really wants…

30 Minutes in the Life: September 2016

I have spent the last 9 weeks in recovery and it still goes on.  I can drive but I cannot walk far.  I find I need to get my foot elevated pretty quickly.  I attempted to take some photo’s juggling the crutches yesterday and that just did not work.  So for this month I am just going to continue to share the Seattle Stories….

30 Minutes in the Life: August 2016

Please bare with me this month.  At the beginning of July I had foot surgery, and while I tried to do what I could to get blogs sorted out in a space of 2 weeks, it did not happen.  So I am going to share images that I took back in December 2015 at a fundraiser.  Some of you may know that I am…

30 Minutes in the Life: July 2016

How time has flown.  This month 30 Minutes in the Life celebrates 3 years of blogging together.  It has been an incredible journey for me.  I have learned so much over this period for the photographers I have blogged with.  I have shared in the highs and lows of their lives, watched their children grow, and come to love the ladies and their stories….

30 Minutes in the Life: June 2016

30 Minutes in the Life, June 2016 is due to go live in a couple of weeks and I was at a loss to where to go.  Boca Raton, is not like a big city.  There may be a few high building but honestly it is not like Seattle or Denver.  Like the rest of Florida it is pretty flat.  I decided to head on…
