Creative Friday

Cederberg 2014

There was great excitement yesterday when we said goodbye to all the Scouts leaving for the Cederberg Adventure. Our two girls are there and will be gone for 12 days. There is no signal so we won’t have any contact with them, they are going to hike for 10 days with their group, up and down various mountains and work on bases, they will have to navigate with a GPS and carry their own food. It’s such an amazing experience and they’re going to LOVE it!! Many in the group are going back for their third time.

I miss them SO much already and can’t wait for them to come home but this wonderful journey is something they will carry in their hearts for the rest of their lives.

Going Solar in SA

Solar Jar

This is an amazing little gem! It’s called a Solar Jar. Just place in the sun for eight hours initially.

Consol Glass Solar Light

Flip the magnet onto the dot and…

Consol Glass Solar Lights

You’ll have eight hours of solar light from your jar!

I cannot tell you how much I love these little treasures! We are experiencing a major electricity crisis here in South Africa, our electricity provider, Eskom is battling to deliver power to the whole of SA due to maintenance issues and repairs etc… Our power will suddenly turn off for 3 hours at a time, sometime twice a day, with no warning. We have a schedule for power outages but they don’t seem to be adhering to it anymore. At least with these delightful jars, we can have some light available to us. I’m going to be giving these as Christmas gifts this year, they are practical and not too expensive. I bought ours at Trappers for R 149. With the way things are going in SA right now, we will have to seek out alternative power sources, apparently this power issue will not be rectified by Eskom in the near future. We are also looking at installing a gas hob on our stove to make cooking a little easier.

Do you use solar power in your home? If you have any links or ideas for us, please share in the comments:)

Mosaic Erin Sun

Mosain Kye Square

We’ve been winding down our school year this week, everyone chose mosaics from the craft shop and they’ve been busily working on them and have had tremendous fun!

We’ve had great excitement here today, the girls’ friends have just arrived from Australia for a holiday and came two days early to surprise them!! Oh my goodness, the shrieking!! It was wonderful!

Have a lovely weekend:)
