Happy days are here again.

A scene between Villiersdorp and Grabouw in the Western Cape.

A new week has begun.

And I am a happy camper at the moment! 🙂 My significant other arrived Friday evening around 8 pm., and we’ve had a busy weekend of looking for and buying some of the fittings needed for the reno of the guesthouse, as well as exploring and visiting a ‘new’ town (this time one of the oldest towns in the country, Tulbagh, ca. 1699) one of our favourite pastimes. We also managed to fit in a quick visit to my son. The weekend flew by!

Having lunch with Daisy at Hussar Grill in Paarl.

The builders have arrived, and they are just about to start doing some of the walls that need to go up to change the one guest cottage into two separate units. Happy days! I am at once very excited and very nervous. I’m quite sure it’s the right thing to do, so I’m hoping that we manage to do everything in the time I’ve allowed for it, and that we don’t have too many hitches in the completion of the task. And most of all, I’m hoping that everything looks professional and beautiful when we’re done – I don’t want anything to look scruffy and rushed.

I’ve once again realized that life is so much more fun if you don’t have to do it on your own. Sharing the everyday things with someone just makes things so much more manageable and less daunting.

There is a definite change in the air – autumn is well and truly here! I love having to cover up, especially at night. Being too hot to sleep has never been my favourite thing, so snuggling in under the duvet is a treat and a half!

Vine leaves turning red on my son’s veranda.

Good luck for the week ahead, I hope it meets your expectations! 🙂

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! :)
