Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a beautiful 27C day, with no wind, slightly less manic in Camps Bay than it was yesterday; for getting some client work done; for showing my new CAMPS BAY CLEAN Cleaner Gift Bakoven, and the litter HotSpots, and then sending him off to the Tidal Pool to clean up litter there this afternoon, filling ten Council bags today; for preparing for my 4th Advent celebration and pre-birthday party, so sad that so many of my friends were ill and could not join us, and even more Continue reading →

#Grateful for a beautiful day at 28C and 31C in town, with two summer days to follow before the weather changes; for an organized writing morning; for my apartment being cool this afternoon when I did a little snooze; for an energetic walk through my little alleyways in Bakoven, not thinking that I would have the energy to do so in the heat, and gained 300 Discovery points; for a drive in the breeze at sunset to meet two German tourists at Utopia Cape Town, having a drink with them; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
