Today's South African find...

On the side of the road, on my way to the grocery store, naturally. Yes, they are real.

While Gumption is still in the process of being made-over, I thought I'd share some pictures this week of things that have been going on on this side of the world. Hopefully, I'll be back to full functioning levels very soon!


PS - What do you see on the side of the road normally? I'm sure nothing as cool(aka, weird?) as that.

A very soggy Monday morning

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! This weekend was a bit drizzly at times, but we woke up to a torrential downpour this morning. On my way to work (which I often hope, in vain, will be cancelled due to any sudden extreme weather), I found myself praying multiple times that the rising waters would not touch the bottom of my car. I don't think you can see it too well, but in the picture above, the truck is driving through about three inches of water. Thankfully, I made it just fine!
Gumption is still in the process of receiving a make over, so I'll be back in exactly one week. Thanks for being so patient! I can't wait to reveal the new look. :)

Hope your Monday morning is much drier than mine!

The traffic stretched all the way up and behind the hill, for well over a mile or two (maybe three?). Thankfully, I was driving in the opposite direction.  

The other thing that happened this morning. Neither would admit to who started this.
