GET TO KNOW DESIRE A LITTLE BETTER ...

Desire, you are on top of your game, my friend ... lovely LO with stunning journalling - thank you for putting so much effort into our {BOM} Challenges. By the way, if you pop into Desire's blog you will see that she is currently working on several challenges at once and still manages to keep up with each one - you are amazing - I am starting to fall behind and am taking on even more - my mantra for today will be "I CAN do it!!!" .... tee hee ...


Here is her journalling ...


Before I mention the things I love I just would like to mention the basic belief I live by i.e. happiness come from within and no one and no thing can begin to make you happy if you are not content and happy from within, therefore one creates your own happiness. And of course if you believe in the Creator of All, happiness is a sure thing. (you are so right, Desire)
This is my HAPPINESS list: * The most important love of my love is my life partner, friend and soul mate, Conroy who gives meaning to living each day as if it is my last and makes me feel loved and cared for. * The smell of freshly baked bread and having a warm slice with melting butter and homemade apricot jam. * Watching birds (especially Wagtails) having a good wash down in a bird bath situated in a beautiful garden. Wagtails exuberates such happiness. * Capturing the beautiful innocence of children on camera. * The smell of freshly fallen rain on a dirt road, brings back fond memories of life on a farm. * The comforting taste of plain old Cadbury’s chocolate melts away any bad vibes. * Peanut butter and honey with a slice of white bread toast – note the order. * The high one experience when completing a running/walking road race. * Climbing a mountain and experiencing the exhilarating feeling of freedom on top. * Freshly prepared Crayfish with a creamy sherry and prawn sauce. * When a scrapbooking design materialise and the final layout is just as I have imagined it all along. * Collecting my latest photos from the lab. * When out in nature and beautiful white fluffy clouds are offset against the bluest of blue skies. * My favourite drink Schweppes Dry Lemon & a tot of Gin topped with a stick filled with cherries. * 2-Ply Baby Soft Toilet Tissue Paper * Creamiest, foamiest … most delicious NescafĂ© Cappuccino or any other cappuccino. * Warm home made custard with ProNutro … my Dad used to call me ‘Miss Vla’. * Any home baked warm pudding. * Vaseline Intensive Care Hand & Nail Hydrating Lotion. * Environ facial products. * Watching my favourite TV Soap, Egoli. * The feeling of walking on air after a pedicure. * Home made Lasagne with lots of creamy white cheese sauce. * A neat and organised home. * Beautiful Persian carpets. * My laptop, can’t live without it * Wearing my wedding ring which at the moment is the second version of the original due to theft etc. * Wearing my late Mom’s wedding band and her Mom’s wedding band which I have melted down to make one band … which is also a second version of the original due to theft. * My in-laws who have done so much for us and loves me as one of their own daughters. * My Canon cameras, which in a way is an extension of me. * Waking up in the morning to the sound of bird song ... makes me want to get up and start the day with a song in my heart. * Crawling into a warm bed which has been heated by an electric blanket on a cold winters night ... makes me feel safe. * Taking that once in a life time perfect photo ... makes my heart skip a few beats. * Admiring nature's beautiful flowers and being amazed at the spectrum of colours and knowing that there is a higher power. * Walking in nature ... keeps my spirit upbeat. * Friends who accept me for whom and what I am ... give me a feeling of belonging. * To GIVE to someone who NEEDS ... makes me feel worthy. * Delft crockery … inherited quite a few pieces from my late Mom and Dad. * Setting a festive Xmas table. * Putting up and decorating the Xmas tree, especially love lots of lights in the tree. * Finding a piece of clothing in the shops that I like, in just the right size. * Taking a holiday and spending it at a luxurious lodge in beautiful natural surrounds. * Meerkats as they are a good example to human beings of how to care for your fellow beings and to stand together in difficult times. * Nyala is my favourite wild buck. * Proteas with their everlasting beauty. * Getting breakfast in bed, served by my darling hubby Conroy … this has been happening now for 24+ years. * Cold and rainy winter days. * Beautiful paintings of nature, the traditional way ... no modern stuff. * Lemon Meringue Pie. * Crystal Cut Glass pieces, inherited quite a few pieces from my late Mom and Dad.

Desire, please could you elaborate a bit about the Meerkat - I know nothing about them and I will post it here for all to see ...
I noticed that there are quite a few favourite foodstuffs in this list (obviously the walking keeps you slim ... tee hee) and that you have a deep love of nature - this list captures exactly what you are all about - I LOOOOOVE IT!!!


Love,

Stunning layout, as always and certainly portrays exactly who Desire is (as I have come to know her).

Mine should be finished this week-end.
