bake day.

So this morning all 5 of us went for medical exams for our permanent status here. Ugh. Just the waiting and the going back and forth that made me wanna scream as I have a zillion things to do here at home. Today we are also baking the cupcakes... Tia is mixing the batter for me. Awesome to have such capable girls to help. Okay, and now for the best part of the week... look at my cards!!!! I seriously took 50 pictures of them yesterday. They remind me of a bed of flowers. and the box they are in comes from an antique store... they are called cheese boxes. Love the old with the new look. If you want to see more pictures... click HERE. There's about 12 images of the box there.

The winner of yesterday's RAK is Roslyn!!! Email em please and I can send you some goodie stuff.

Tomorrow is the doctor's birthday. Good times to come. Just want to share a quick little verse with you that made me laugh out loud when I read it this morning. Psalm 37 30-31 Righteous chews on wisdom like a dog on a bone, rolls virtue around on his tongue. His heart pumps God's Word like blood through his veins; his feet are as sure as a cat's.

Have a great day...
Leave a comment... I am doing a RAK every day this week

Hi there,
Your cards are beautiful. I know what you mean about the waiting...too bad an appointment time can't mean just that.

Gorgeous new look blog Wilna. Way to go. Also a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to both you and Jaku. Hope you both enjoy your days. And if I was in the neighbourhood I would definately have dropped in for a cuppa.... only thing is the airfaire is a bit out of my budget at the moment.

Mariette said...

Sjoe dit is mooi jou kaartjies. Ek is ook mal oor die stukkie Afrikaans wat nou op jou blog is, dit laat my darem voel of jy ons hier in Suid-Afrika nie heeltemaal verlaat het nie. Baie geluk met jou verjaarsdag. Sorry te ver om in te val, maar sou graag wou.

caro said...

Veels geluk mnr & mev die dokter... julle bly nog altyd jonk vir my !

Alles wat mooi is vir julle hele gesin & geluk ook met daai visums.
Mage die Here julle nogmals seen.

As for the flowers Jaku, I'm afraid you're gonna have to find big buck to impress Wilna, now that she's making these beauties herself!!!
I would be all of a dither if I had to choose between the polka dotty ones & the lacy tops... but, secretly, it's the pink tulle, that makes me long for tutu's and such girly things.

Ok, so pop & marshmallow on a coffe for me & I'll toast you with some fresh tea. ENJOY the special time!!! xxXX

Hello there Wilna
happy birthday to Doc. and to you tomorrow.

Seriously missed this site was on holiday and even considered taking my laptop to see the daily blog and often words of inspiration....sadly back in the real world of SA and work/school/laundry-at least we have sunshine today.

Have a happy week ahead.

At the time of posting this comment it is Wednesday afternoon, 5pm here in Cape Town and according to your blog it is Jaku's birthday today, therefore....

Wishing Jaku a fantabulous birthday and a sunshiny 37th year!!

And it's your birthday tomorrow, Thursday, so I promise to come on and visit and wish you for this very special day :) Now if only I lived closer I would have definitely dropped in on you tomorrow :( what a pity but I'm nonetheless sure you'll have a marvellous open-cake day (I really giggled reading that as it's the first time I heard it and it's just ingenius!!)!

That's rather freaky and fantastic at the same time .. hehe, both of you being the same age and your birthdays being one day apart!!!

I absolutely looove the littly flowers that you made up Wilna and the invitations are just too die for, you are truly amazingly talented and MM can thank their lucky stars for having you :)

I know it's been forever since I've been to visit your blog and it took me an hour today to catch up but it was definitely a very enjoyable hour, but I do apologise because I love to drop in to your blog because you are just so inspirational, but sjoe, it's been a crazy little time in my life with work, and still is, and I just haven't been finding any time to do anything I love for myself, but alas... today I just MADE the time and I'm very glad :) And what good timing I see with you having littly RAK's, you're such a giving person, it's very refreshing and an amazing example! So, please do say a little prayer for me asking God to just make things a little less stressful with work even if it's just for one day, every bit helps! I even had an argument with him today about how he made us and that we have to waste prescious time going to the loo.. hehe.. but then I did praise rightafer him for doing such a marvelous ingenious job on us ungrateful humans :)

I'll check in again tomorrow (my time) to wish you! Oh, and before I forget, how are you doing with the exercise??? I've been thinking about you everyday and saying a special little prayer just for you! :)

Toodles for now, Bella {hug}
