Semi Good Day…

The past few days have been really hard for me, but yesterday was a semi-good day.

One of the guys that works at the casino Sean and I are Facebook friends.  He is an incredibly talented artist who often posts photos of his work on his page.  I showed some of his work to Mom, who subsequently paid him a number of compliments – to the point where the poor man was blushing.  He asked me if he could paint me something as a “thank you” gift and while I kept telling him it wasn’t necessary, he insisted.  I eventually gave in and asked him to paint me black and white arum lilies.  I got my painting yesterday!  I have taken it to Cousin Lara to be framed, which is going to cost R500 (so I am saving).  This is what the painting looks like.  Once it is framed, I shall post another pic.

From there Mom and I popped on to the post office where there was a letter for me.  What a pleasant surprise that was.  It was from Ken Cornish, one of my dinner companions during our recent cruise on the MSC Sinfonia.  He can be seen in the photo on this post.  I can’t remember when last I received a real letter.  Ken says he is too old for “this new fangled e-mail.”

Last night my stepsister Benita and her daughter Alexa joined us for dinner (they are busy with training in the area), along with Aunty Carol and Uncle Barry.  I had such a headache by the end of the night, and I didn’t even have any wine…

Well, I had best go do something constructive, like continuing the job search.

‘Til later…
