Cold ‘n Wet News

It is raining cats and dogs here today which I am absolutely ecstatic about given the fact that the drought this end of this world is really bad now. The dam that supplies the water for the town I live in is only 10% full. We’ve had strict water restrictions for quite some time already, but if we don’t get serious rain soon, we are probably going to be rationed to water from tanks! Life, as you all know is so ironic, because the one simple pleasure I crave is a hot, candle-lit bubble bath, with Vivaldi’s Four Seasons playing in the background and it is the one thing that I am just not allowed to have right now. Maybe when I’m away on leave I will be able to indulge in a long hot bath sans the candles and Signore Vivaldi.

I heard from Jake again and I must admit that I am more than just a little intrigued.  He mentioned that he was going to have an early night because he had an early flight this morning.  I politely enquired as to where he was going to which I received these two replies:

1.  Cape Town, Durban, P.E, Cape Town, Home

2.  I should probably mention I’m a pilot.  You may wonder bout the schedule.

I had this freaky Déjà vu moment about a person from my past who wanted to be a pilot and I actually went ice cold.  It is this very person that caused me to stop blogging for almost three years after threats of physical violence against me.

I replied to him telling him that if I didn’t know better (and come to think of it, I don’t really), I would think he is a ghost from my past.

He asked if the ghost was also a pilot.

To which I replied, “Not exactly – he wanted to be, long story…May tell you sometime.  Now get your rest.  You sound like you have a long day/s ahead.”

I fell asleep although he did reply, “Sounds interesting.   Yes tomorrow is going to be bumpy.  Lots of frontal activity.”

Needless to say, there is not only frontal activity on the route he’s flying today – the rain here is evident of that.

I have to pop on at Sandra’s house after work today so that she can go through the work I’ve done over the past two weeks on audits for the British authorities for our exports.  While I did internal audits at my previous job for our SABS certification, the two I have finished now are so much more intense.

Mom has phoned to tell me that we are going to have soup and bread for supper.  I can only think of one thing better in this weather – pancakes and sherry, or gluwhein.

But, until supper time, I am going to have to settle for a packet of Big Korn Bites and a cuppa java.

‘Til later…

      Granny, we are going to probably have butternut and orange, or pea and ham soup, courtesy of Woolies.

      As for Jake, I must say, I am quite happy that he typed a number wrong and ended up at my phone. He comes across as an intellectual, old-soul. I want to ask him how old he is and what his last name is, but part of me is enjoying the mystery of not knowing.

    He does sound very nice! Enjoy the mystery until he is ready to tell you. I’m curious about your ghost from the past, if you ever feel like a blog to lay the ghost, so to speak.

      Adee, he does sound very nice. The term “old-soul”comes to mind. I may blog about the ghost sometime…if I continue to chat to Jake, it may very well be sooner than later.

    Ah, a pilot, he just gets better and better. Best you keep him a mystery, he’s bound to disappoint in the flesh.
    No supper here tonight, Old Spouse is away and the Bunn and I are stuffed from lunch.

      Cin, he does, doesn’t he? As for keeping him a mystery – that’s pretty much what he is and I think he will be for quite some time. Am off to have my soup ‘n bread now…keep warm!!
