Can you believe this?

This is me crying BECAUSE I have waited oh so patiently for this whole time for boot camp to finally restarts tomorrow morning and I am so rearing to get cracking however, my hubbies cousin is in South Africa all the way from Minnesota. It is a once in a lifetime visit to them to our country, and it will be the first time I meet her and she and hubby have not seen each other since their teenage years. They are specially driving 4.5 hrs to spend one night and day with us. We are having dinner together tonight and breakfast together tomorrow morning before they leave. They wish to have breakfast at 8am which would be slap in the middle of boot camp.

I cannot...not go to breakfast, so I have to wait till Wednesday to join boot camp for this year.
Aah well, better be a big girl and suck it up.

It seems I'm crying for one reason or the other lol. Its either because of the heat or missing boot camp. The rain finally came (thx to Shiraleigh) for sending it to us from Cape Town lol.
It was so beautiful, my mom and I sat outside in the gentle rain till we were sopping wet. Today all the plants are happy again, Im cooler and happier and especially happy knowing that the small and big wild creatures on the mountains have a fresh supply of water once more.

We had a fire on the mountain due to the Chinese lanterns that were set off...Im wondering if they will ban them next year?

So.....I saw my nephew off today, gone back home after his holiday here. Spent some time working out a diet plan for my sons and now my sister is on board because her son gets married in March. Very exciting stuff for us all.

    I saw your comments on madeit3 s page and had to comment. Those Chinese lanterns not only cause fires but also cause hurt and pain to animals when they come down I have heard a few cases of horses being killed when they panic when the lanterns drop. They might look nice but they should be banned.
Hope you have a great week ahead

    It never rains but it pours. Too many good things all happening at once for you. So glad you had rain as it sounds like a real relief for everyone and everything.

    I'm with Mary - if it meant you'd miss this WHOLE session of boot camp I'd suggest asking her to have breakfast after it was done. But just missing one class? Family is WAY more important!! Have fun!!

    So sorry you're going to miss the start of boot camp, but it sounds like you have a special family time planned.

I love your description of sitting outside in the rain. What are Chinese lanterns? Are they the same as fireworks?

Here we woke up this morning to a scant two inches of snow but very cold with wind chills about -20F. So I'll be staying inside and thinking about you and your mom sitting in the garden in a gentle rain. Sigh.

Have a great week!

    emoticon you shouldn't cry about starting boot camp late, just as long as you start. You can also work in some exercise after your visit with family.

So happy you all got emoticon a much need resource.

Did you take any last of the year photos?

Hugs Mary
