Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for an action-packed day, but well-timed with one exception; for a sunny warm 21C day but with the South-Easter blowing; for my rolls and also eggs waiting for me at Dinkel Bakery;  for good Anatoli and Utopia Status meetings, the first time we’ve held them in the morning, as the client postponed them to today; for dropping off Chef Prim Reddy Chapter prize of Adhara Extra Virgin olive oil as a 2021 Top 10 Woman Chef at her Indian Chapter restaurant in Blouberg, sadly she not there; for a good status meeting at Harvest Culture Continue reading →

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a stunning 30C day today, after four days of wind, the beaches in Camps Bay being jam-packed with happy swimmers and picnickers; for an amazing start to the day; for the City of Cape Town taking a first tiny step to fix the broken fence, and for removing the flattened pedestrian sign at Bali Bay 🙏; for a lovely lunch to which I was invited by Dale Kushner at the offices of film company AFS Productions on Kloof Street; for being able to leave my car parked at their offices and being able to explore the bottom end of Kloof Steeet, for a second (late afternoon) walk to the Tidal Pool, seeing a luxury bus with EFF supporters shouting out of the windows and blowing their vuvuzelas, being transported back to Hout Bay from Brackenfell 😱; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for reaching the 100th day of Lockdown, having enjoyed this process and learning so far, sadly feeling at my lowest today in all the past 100 days, yet so happy to celebrate with the most beautiful music performed by Daniel Hope with Hope @ Home on Tour, from Zürich with the Zürich Chamber Orchestra, largely dedicated to the celebration of American Independence Day; for having Joel come to work today, not cleaning up Camps Bay for a change but transforming our apartment garden; for an energetic walk to Clifton Fourth Beach and back in sunny mild weather before rain comes along tomorrow; for a complimentary taste of Unframed ice cream, now available at Sunset Sessions 🙏; for a shop at Pick n Pay; for a shorter walk to Bakoven; finding horrid litter in the driveway of a house, mainly with beer bottles; for all the love in the sky today, so many 💙 clouds; and for a very early night in bed, to get over this pain. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
