Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a warm day caused by the pre-rain Berg wind, a winter week lying ahead of us from this evening; for Joel coming to help me clean up in Bakoven and Camps Bay; for seeing Eugene van Eck running past my home, doing a half marathon all the way from the Waterfront; for a relaxed afternoon; for a dinner spoil with Katie Friedman lying ahead; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
