Bless-ed Arrival

So, as I was saying in my last post about our trip, we were picked up by lovely people who we didn’t know yet.  They drove us to their home where a room was prepared for us (and another room given up by their daughter for our kiddos!).

We were a bit groggy and grimy (24 hours traveling, remember!) but it didn’t stop me from being overjoyed and humbly blessed by the hospitality our hosts offered us. Including this incredible view of the valley and vineyards…

Girlie was especially pooped and was the only one to curl up for a late afternoon nap.

Meanwhile, the braai (barbeque!) was being prepared, I was content on the balcony, enjoying the view and my very own heater.  It was glorious. The air was just a bit chilly for me, and it was oh-so-refreshing!

Gorgeous.

My boy was pretty excited about our accommodations and the new little friends that came with them. He was a tad energetic.

Then Sweet N woke up and these two cheesed it up…

We had a great time getting to know our new friends that evening. In the morning we continued to lay low at their place.

Of course we can never enjoy coffee without sharing. Oh well.

The kiddos found plenty to do. And aren’t they cute all ‘bundled ‘ up? My daughter looks so different to me in ‘winter’ clothes.

And here’s me and the little one. I enjoyed wearing some warm clothes of my own and relaxing in our temporary accommodations. What a blessing!
