Lockdown in South Africa Day 25

The weather started out sunnily this morning but then a strong wind whipped up and it looks like we may have a rainstorm later today.   I managed to get a load washed and dried but the second one had to be brought in before we had a shower.

Being Monday, Lollz is back at work online but she and the Earl took a short trip to the shops and got us croissants for breakfast.  Because we seldom eat carbohydrate foods – especially refined one – this was a real treat.   A croissant is the only carbohydrate food that I miss!

We also had a zoom chat with some friends with whom we were in Kruger National Park in February.  That was fun and kept us amused for about an hour.

I have now completed my household chores for the day and am sitting down to my favourite challenge of the week, Share Your World from Sparks

In your opinion what animal is the most majestic?

The definition for majestic according to Dictionary.com is ‘having or showing impressive beauty or scale”.   I think the elegant giraffe the most majestic of all. She is an exceedingly tall and beautiful creature and to me is more of an African icon than any other animal.  There are a number of other animals and birds that I think are majestic too.   It’s actually hard to choose.

Of course, the king is also majestic

What seemingly innocent question makes you think “It’s a trap!”?

“May I have a glass of water?” from a child just put to bed.  He probably doesn’t want a glass of water – he wants attention!  I have fallen for this trap too many times!

What weird potato chip flavour that doesn’t exist would you like to try?  (NOTE:  Potato chips are called ‘crisps’ over the pond in the UK and Europe, I think.  Thanks to Sandmanjazz for reminding me we all don’t speak the same English!  😆   )

Olive and avo is a wonderful combination on pizza, in a salad or on a cracker so why not make an olive and avo chip flavour?

Share some gratitude with people if you like.  Images are certainly appropriate!

    Thanks sincerely for Sharing Your World. All your choices for ‘magnificent creatures’ are right on the money! So beautiful. Thank you for sharing some images of these majestic animals! 🙂 I have to agree that the whole “I want a glass of water’ is mostly b.s. and is a transparent attempt at getting to stay up a few moments longer and/or get mom or dad’s undivided attention. 😆 Lastly, I think there is or was an avocado olive combo chip over here in America. Lays ™ ran a contest a few years back where they invited the public to make up combinations and submit them. They then manufactured a limited supply of different flavors. I thought (and still do think) that a bacon, lettuce and tomato flavored potato chip would be yummy, but apparently I’m in a minority on that. Heh.

    Thanks so much too for that wonderful meme on gratitude! Such wise words! 😀
