|Traveling light! NOT!|
It's been too long! I'm finally going back to the motherland! Tickets are booked! I already have most of my stuff in suitcases. I weighed and weighed and weighed my luggage pieces. Everything was more or less in order. I took a bunch of things from my eBay store to sell to my people back home. People had been asking me to either sell things online to them and ship to South Africa or to bring them stuff when I went back home. Well!
Here we go!
The plan was that Calvin was going to drop me at the airport. Very nice of him to agree when I asked. He was going to have to go to bed very late. My flight was almost midnight. I spent the last day at home going over luggage. To be going home after so many years, is so exciting and nerve wrecking! There are things that I had been accumulating over time, with intent to give to my family when I got back home. Now, to remember every single one of those items! Thankfully, when my sister was in Los Angeles,I had sent her back with some of the stuff. Those were simpler times. It was just after I got married, so less drama in my home.
I have family spread all across the country. I would have loved to rent a car and do a cross country road trip. When I talked to my people back home, everyone was like, are you trying to get hijacked? Ah, sh*t! There goes my fun already!
I packed up to the walnuts I got from my clients. Those were for my sister, Pumla to use in one of her amazing recipes. Check her out on Afternoon Express, SABC 3, my South African people. She's a regular guest on that TV show, doing a cooking segment. Also, her second cookbook is out, find her @ Pumla Brook-Thomae on all social media for orders. I know how expensive nuts are, especially walnuts, so I took some of my clothes out to fit those in there, haha! It was a big bag as you may have seen in the previous blog.
