This weekend was just what I needed. After a stressy week at work we were able to unwind totally and still got so many things done. Monday was a public holiday here in South Africa (Human Rights Day) and the extra day off just made it totally sublime. We had fantastic weather with a little rain on Friday and Saturday nights with warm sunny days in between.
On Friday night the Bean and I treated ourselves to sushi at Ollie’s restaurant (sushi on Fridays only) which is one of our favorite foods to eat. We also watched the full first season of 24 which we missed on TV. (This was done across the whole weekend in bits and pieces.)
On Saturday after a quick clean of the cottages, a good friend of mine and her daughter came to visit us for the morning. We drove around the reserve picking up Wildebeest poop (Gnu) for my veggie patch.
It’s the freshest manure I can get here. I also had a gardener to help me dig over the bed and get it ready for planting. We had a great girl day.
Sunday ended up being what we call a pajama day – really lazy – reading books, watching dvd’s and I got some more of my painting done. I am really happy with the tree trunk now.
On Monday I was up early (forced out of my bed by the guilt of not having done anything the day before) and got the pool backwashed, my seeds planted, washing washed, and some housework done. After the last few episodes of 24, and a few swims to cool off, I finished the acrylic part of my painting. Now all that I have to do with it is add some oil paint for detail and definition.
I hope you all had a great weekend too. Do you ever have pajama days? What do they entail?
