Friday ‘fun’.

Posted on
Triple therapy – wine, knitting and my garden. (An old pic, but you get the idea…)

The cat is back!

I’m hoping that we are done with the vet now (nothing against the vet, she’s awesome!), and I’m hoping there will be constant improvement and healing for the next few weeks. I wonder how many of his nine lives our Roomys (Ice cream) have used up now?

It is a cool, windy day here. It was supposed to be hot, but I’ll be the last one to complain about the wrong prediction! This steady cooling down, albeit with a spike of heat here and there, is heaven to me. I’ll live happily in a place where the temperature never goes below 0°, and never above 28° (Celsius, of course!)

My little table painting project bummed out completely. The guy at the hardware store obviously gave me the wrong undercoat to use. I did the undercoat, and waited the appropriate time for it to dry. Then I started painting – three layers, and waiting patiently in between for every layer to dry. It was looking good, just needed a soft sanding to be perfect. And that is where the pawpaw hit the fan… As I sanded, the paint started coming of, and I could peel it off in big plastic sheets!!! So I ‘peeled’ the whole table. And now I have to start all over again. Aaaaaarrrrggghhhhh…. :/

To make it usable for the guests this weekend, I put a tablecloth on the table with a plant on top. You’ve just got to love life’s little curve balls….

Fortunately, it is Friday afternoon now, and in a couple of hours I can pour myself a cold glass of fabulous South African wine, put my feet up, and start enjoying the weekend. Bliss. 🙂

About zelmare

Hallo to you from the southern most part of the African continent - South Africa!! To put my life in a nutshell : I raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), I became a doting grandmother two years ago and recently bought a house in the Western Cape, and in doing so, realized a dream I've had for many, many years. I love traveling, which I don't do often enough. I love living a simple life - cooking, gardening, knitting and of course, blogging. There is still a lot I want to do and see in my lifetime, but time will tell how much of that I can actually accomplish. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people here on WordPress! :)
