Cape Town

I did this watercolor ATC when I came home from the waterfront. It's for you SB! I had a lovely day! 30 degrees C(86 I think in F). My kind of weather! After an illegal sunbath( I went to the hotel opposite the street, our hotel, the Westin, is fabulous , but it has only an indoor pool), I went to the waterfront. Always something to see there! I had a lovely salad there with a South African wine. I even took 2 ATC's with me and worked on them while waiting for my meal. (btw I made friends with the waiter of the hotel with the pool and told him I was not a hotel guest, I can come back tomorrow.........honesty is always the best policy) And here is my "office". I am amazed that within a day I can make such a big mess! I won't show you the rest of my room......... But it feel a bit like home like this. Blogging is slow here, but I will try to make some visits now. See you later.

  5. and soulbrush wants to say a huge big thankyou, what an astoundingly glorious atc. ek is so jaloers as ek die mooi fotos van die waterfront sien.....ek weet dis vir toeriste maar dit het wonderlike 'views' and 'environment'...oooh geniet jou tyd daar en geniet die sonskyn- en baie dankie en ek het jou so lief, jy is die beste vriendin wat ek kon ooit gekry het.

  6. Listen to you, Kiddo! Wow! A little sun, a little water, a little wine, a little paint...sounds like the high life to me. :) I know you had to work to get there and you have to work to get back, too! The painting is great and the work space...well, that is great, too!

    Thanks for sharing, Marianne!

  8. hi marianne!

    SB will love her ATC. It is beautiful.

  10. Hi Marianne!!! I am still so jealous you get to go to South Africa! I wish I had your job! Such fun! I like the looks of your desk even on your trip at the hotel!!! I love my time creating something late at night on a trip after my hubby goes to sleep!!!

  11. Ha ha, heel herkenbaar....
    Ik kan er ook altijd in een mum van tijd zo'n zootje van maken.

    En stinkend jaloers op je mini laptop!!

  13. And here is my "office". I am amazed that within a day I can make such a big mess! I won't show you the rest of my room......... But it feel a bit like home like this. hihihihihihiiiiii erg herkenbaar!! Mijn tafel is 'bijna' leeg *grinnik ;-)
