Semi grumpy and cold

So here I sit multi tasking and cold. And it must be, because its winter in South Africa, but boy o boy it’s biting this year and heaters make my head fuzzy (the flue you know). OK, I can sit in the Sun, but then I will struggle to see my screen and I’m restudying something I was good at to help supplement my income when I go on pension just down the line.

Break: Time to go check my coffee water (made a fire outside)
Not ready yet.

You see, although I like my luxuries I also love the bush. Can’t wait till everything is in place and I sit relaxed amongst the game. The computer/electrical thing are just for consultation and to keep myself busy and an additional income when on pension.
Break: Now it must be ready
Boiling – this invader tree makes a good fire.

Yes, its 5+ months down the line and my operation seems to be successful. I’m beginning to pickup some of the 12kg I lost and can eat almost anything by now and will be rejoining the workforce shortly. I was also able to sort my internet connection problems (changed service provider). Although the D.I.Y. antenna did work when constantly low, it did not work for me as my signal kept on jumping between “Hero and Zero”

Break: Pit-stop (it’s the coffee)

This planning for the future really makes me feel good. Just one project in Limpopo and then I will do some solar studies. My retirement is going to be rustic but with style. I already started my fruit trees in pots and plan to have my little Eden in 2-7 years (2 years to get everything in place and 7 to be in style). And yes, I will not miss my music as I plan to continue going to TJ’s in Johannesburg once a month. And maybe this old bull will find it in him to get a cow (not meant to be ugly) to join him (that’s is however debatable for a loner like me, but then; even while I’m getting old, I’m not dead yet)
Enough of the shop talk, time to continue my studies

Cheers – I know it’s not Facebook but learn to laugh

Have the courage to use your own knowledge in life. It is a true state of enlightment.
