First I flew to Johannesburg and when I returned Friday I flew to Sweden (Gothenburg) with my brother to visit my family.
My uncle has had a tough half year in which he got a stroke and had his leg amputated.
We really feared for his life a while.
I was so happy to see he was doing so much better now. He looked good and his spirits were high again.
I am so happy we made the trip to visit him. We also visited a sweet aunt of mine I haven't seen in 5 years and of course I enjoyed my stay with my dear Swedish sister (cousin) Anna.

We had one day of rain and for the rest lovely sunny autumn weather. It was fun to travel together with my brother and to see my family again.
I still have a few days off before I fly next week.
The first (yesterday) I spent relaxing and sleeping as 2 trips in a row is tiring I found out.
The kids have Autumn holiday now so I decided not to continue painting the corridor. I will do that after my next trip. Tomorrow we will visit my Mom and see Johnny English with the family. I think the boys will love it and think I will too ;)

Mul means root, it has a similar etymological origin to the Punjabi language word Muli which means white radish. A Mantar or Mantra is "an empowering formula for repetition". The Mul Mantra is thus the root statement of Sikhism
This is a mantra which is in my head lately. This song just makes me feel good and helps me to get over a bad mood. Well I just hope it will make you feel good as well.
May I introduce myself? I am Bassie I arrived yesterday to do what my predecessor didn't succeed at last year.
I have to make these 2 mature ladies pregnant. A big job for a young boy like me...... but I will do my best.
My new Mom doesn't know where I come from, but she thinks I must be from a situation where I was around people, because I am very tame.
I arrived yesterday and without any fuss I stepped out of the trailer right into this yard where 2 ladies were welcoming me with grace and curiosity.
My Mom will call me Bassie , named after a terrible clown who always says "Everything is for Bassie"
Being a male I think it is my right to have first choice on everything and the girls will get the leftovers. My Mom doesn't agree, she thinks emancipation hasn't reached the world of the deer yet. Well personally I would like to keep it this way.
The girls have to go on a diet anyhow otherwise I can't make any babies according to the man, who brought me here. So I am just doing them ,more than one favor.
Please keep your fingers crossed the ladies will loose weight so they will ovulate and I will succeed in what Lancelot couldn't accomplish.
It is a little painting of a shell which I will hang in my toilet.
I struggled with a landscape for weeks. I know I learn from this but I don't like all my lessons in life ;)
Than I got the idea for this painting for my toilet and this is how far I got in one afternoon.
Amazing how things you do with your heart are so much easier.
Well at least they are more fun. ☺
Tomorrow afternoon I will continue and make pictures of the progress.
The renovation is nearly finished. After my next trip, which will be to Suriname again I will paint my toilet and corridor and then I will take a few weeks off. I hope to get more time to do art . In 8 weeks my new shed will be delivered and I have to paint it 3 times!!!
The house is back to normal and clean again. That feels great!
Slowly life get back to normal as well.
Thanks for all your patience I also hope to become a better blogger and blog friend soon.
