Mom on Thyme on trying Vegan and having compassion

1 April 2017:

With an ‘almost’ hippie son in our home (well, he’s barefoot most of the time, wears his hair in a proper man-bun and has a tattoo or two … or three … or maybe more), we regularly get introduced to new experiences.   New is not always easy, but most of the time, it’s […]

Oor ‘hosts':

Ons kerkgemeenskap stel ‘hosts’ of kuiergroepe bekend en ek en Deon kuier in die week met almal wat bereid is om sulke groepe by hulle huise te begin. Ek kan sien dat hierdie ‘hosts’ mense is wat regtig lief is vir ander. Net gewone mense, gemaklik, sonder pretensie, mense wat iets verstaan van gee, sonder […]

Tiemie Ma oor 25 jaar en oor kamp

Vandag is ek 25 jaar getroud, met my hoërskoolliefde, en ons ken mekaar vandat ek 14 jaar oud is.

Hulle sê, as jy 25 jaar getroud is, dan gee jy silwer vir mekaar, maar hierdie jaar kan ons nie silwer gee nie, want ons sente is op.  As ‘n mens se sente opraak, sonder dat jy […]

14 November 2016:

They say that in India, basil was cherished as an icon of hospitality and in Italy, it was seen as a symbol of love.  This made me think.  I am naturally a very caring person.  Kind, kind-hearted, warmhearted, tender, concerned, attentive, thoughtful, solicitous, altruistic, considerate, affectionate, loving, doting, sympathetic, understanding, compassionate, feeling.   Name […]

Mom on Thyme on rye bread and olive oil:

30 October 2016:

Lately I’ve been wondering about the wholesomeness of life.  Something which can only be experienced when you have bitter-sweet times.  It’s like olive oil.  Olive oil comes from the olive fruit. But when you press the fruit real hard, you won’t find oil, only a white sap, tasting bitter. To get the oil, […]

Mom on Thyme on Mushroom Pasta and Thyme2B:

19 October 2016

Sometimes moms get tired and just need to be.  They get tired of thinking too much and planning all the time.  When moms are in being mode, dads usually have to take over.  Moms then, are grateful, a bit tearful and let dads cook, while they sit, and sip on wine which was […]

10 October 2016:

Things are not always what they seem.  You think you have run out of ideas – but then you didn’t.  You think you are too tired to think, but then you aren’t.   You think things are really bad, but then it’s not.  You think steak is too expensive, but then it’s on special.

We […]

5 October 2016:

When our twins were born, lots of people used to say:  “Double trouble is on its way …”.   I cannot remember much of this predicted double trouble, but I can remember lots of double joy.   Double joy in playing around, double joy in hugs and double joy in laughter.

As parents we had to […]

Mom on Thyme on Love and Pancakes|Tiemie Ma oor Liefde en Pannekoek

26 September 2016:

A fireplace, family & friends and music, are some of the most important things in my life.   And comfort food, when it’s cold and rainy like today.  Pancakes, (Pannekoek), to be more specific.  The official ‘care about you’ food.   It says I care about you in the love it is made with, the […]
