Today has been a lovely day. Oh-soooo-wet-and-windy, but I loved it. I could see poetry written in the raindrops, smiles painted on the lamp posts, slivers of cake etched on the ground. I don’t know what it was. From the moment I woke up, magic clung to me like a shadow…
Heck, I even got excited about Matt accidentally spilling muesli all over the stovetop… muesli rain!
I waltzed in to work, held myself back from singing… ran in the rain to meet my lovely friend Bibs for a fun (and yummy) lunch at Finc – haloumi cheese, eggplant, tomato, mushrooms, etc… :-)
Then off to the library, started off working diligently till I couldn’t keep myself away from the shelves after all and got myself four books to read. I’m now on page 52 of “Boy in Darkness” by Mervyn Peake – an enchanting writer I am very glad to have found (thanks Dave)!
Since Briscoes was having a sale, Matt and I bought things for the flat, including a mirror (yay, no more using the microwave door to check my hair in the morning!), picked up ‘Gusto’ beans at Caffe L’affare and some mille-feuille from Moore Wilson’s & came home for a quick unpack-and-eat break.
Oh, coffee and pastry – you are excellent things for a rainy day.
Down again to town in the now raging rain, jeans getting utterly wet despite our umbrellas staying proudly (and miraculously) intact, for drinks at Electric Avenue…
Then coffee with Haidee, which is one of my necessary and favourite things to do every week. :-) :-)
I’m still very happy, in a nearly scary way. I actually can’t explain it, but I guess it’s a good thing!
I’m going to end this post soon, or it’s going to become a scarily happy post… last things are:
Thank you Cindy, for including my blog in your list of 50 food and travel blogs – I am surprised and very honoured!
And… have a peek at The Village Hearth! Not just because I’m doing a tiny bit of writing there ;-) … it’s a new, creative website which puts the fun right back into domesticity (not for the boring/frumpy).
Alright, that’s enough from me, I think! Hope everyone is having a great weekend :-)
