.Overcast Durban.

So, the holidays are in full swing. I thought dogsitting would be a holiday, but running after these two is more work than play! They are destructive at the best of times, demand attention, and just want to either run after a ball or sit on my lap. I braved a trip to Durban today…

-Zululand-

My oh my oh my. It’s been FAR too long since I have posted. Life, this thing that happens at an alarming pace doesn’t allow me a moment to breathe. And when it does, I chose to take this time out to catch up on much needed sleep. Sigh. Also, when every other weekend is…

With perfect weather, yummy food and…
