May 7 – Pretoriuskop

I woke up feeling refreshed after only about 5 hours of sleep, but it felt so good to sleep in a bed last night. The shower also felt wonderful. My final flight to land in the Kruger National Park at Skukuza was scheduled for 10:00 am, but I still had to pick up the SIM… Continue reading May 7 – Pretoriuskop

Packing

Moving day is 19 days away and I am leaving for South Africa in 28 days.  I am currently packing for both so I can find what I want to take on my trip, even if I haven’t finished unpacking in my new apartment. I have to be brutal in cutting things down for this… Continue reading Packing

I had… Continue reading What’s With This Weather?

The Geese are Back

I guess it must be spring – the Canada Geese are returning.  They generally return in the last couple of weeks of March – so they sure aren’t early, but we generally do not still have over 2 feet of snow at this time of year.  I hope they can find food. I saw one… Continue reading The Geese are Back
