I would be…


…hard pressed…

…to find any beauty…


….in these arachnids

although many would disagree.



Even this one, long embedded in resin

made me jump when I saw how close

it was to my hand.

Not a lot of water however, Victoria Falls

still made magnificent viewing.

withdraw to a quiet or secluded place

Even as pups Candi and Taji soon learned

where their day beds were located.


Five years later between the hours of 1000 and 1400

we expect to find Candi striking a pose

similar to this.

And at other times she simply keeps an eye on us.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge:…Retreat





Lockdown Number 1, 2020,

had barely begun last year

and it was our

wedding anniversary.

I suggested we try something different

and order home delivery from

our local hotel.

We had made a booking

for dinner there anyway.

We had never been in a position that

we could have a meal home delivered

so it was definitely something new and different.

We enjoyed the experience and decided

to  have a few more home delivered meals

during lockdowns 2 & 3, 2020.

 We also had dinner reservations made

for February 13, 2021 to celebrate our birthdays.

We were again forced to home delivery

due too a snap 5 day lockdown which

commenced at midnight on February 12..
