Living without DSTV makes all kinds of sense

There are many simple financial cuts which make it possible for me to be a SAHM.  Our cars (Hyundai and Kia) are 11 & 9 years old.  We don’t need expensive cell phones, my basic Samsung Galaxy Fame does what is needed (R750 at Pep cellular and is on pre-paid not contract).  I’m actually grateful not to have a more ...

A recently watched episode of Seinfeld, ‘The Apology’, reminded me of some past experiences. Stripping off my clothes in the car before entering a naturist (nudist) resort was terrifying. My heart pounded in my throat. What we wear conceals, our clothing is a shield, when Eve ruined it all, clothing signified shame. When Cliff first asked me if we could ... Read More »

A black widow spider in my herb box

Strangely I don’t think I’ve ever seen a black widow (button) spider before.  Now I discover that there’s one living in my herb box.  Discovery made when we found it preying on a carpenter bee stuck in it’s web.  Not entirely comfortable with this fact as I now read that their venom can be fatal to children.  PS, the first ...
