Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for another beautiful summer day, the berg wind giving it away that rain is on the way for the weekend; for finishing an unplanned but hot story last night, which gave me some extra snoozing time this morning; for seeing my dearest friend Stuart Bailey for the first time in 85 days, driving to Stellenbosch together for a meeting, with a long catch-up time, even though we chat on the phone regularly; for receiving a message from Sportsman’s Warehouse that my repaired FitBit was ready for collection, at no charge; to buy beautiful cheeses and preserves at Dalewood Fromage on our way home, the first time in more than three months❤️❤️❤️; for collecting my favorite of favorite Tiramisu dessert treat from Janse at Home at Janse & Co…. mmmmm; for finding three multipacks of Smarties outside my door when I got home, sent to me by Charlotte from Knysna by Woolworths ❤️❤️❤️; for having time for a quick walk when I got home, with the most magnificent sunset; for dancing the rest of my steps of the day; and for feeling happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for my quietest day in the 52 days of Lockdown; for an energetic walk beyond Bakoven this morning, the Camps Bay Promenade being too full on weekend mornings; for Victoria Road in Bakoven having minimal dog poo; for a catch-up day back in bed for most of the day after the walk, catching up on the writing of others, and even a snooze, there being a slight nippiness in the air; for a shopping walk to refresh myself outside; for being rescued by PPA on my way home; for THE most amazing sunset tonight, listeners challenged by Kfm to send a pic, mine getting two special mentions, for 300 Discovery’s for my heart exertion rate for over an hour this morning; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

#Grateful for another beautiful 26C day, before the weekend rain arrives; for loving this Lockdown, yet being able to shop, fetching gloves from Litekem and some essentials at Woolies; for being able to pick up litter along the way; for receiving a Discovery Vitality Gameboard play, not getting one last week; for more dancing and power walking in my ‘gym’ today; for the Vitamin D I get from my sunshine terrace; for there being no silly April Fool jokes except one from Fairview; and for feeling good and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
