Today was the day…
I woke up well rested and full of energy. No more side-effects from the J&J Booster. Mike had no side-effects at all from his, although he did complain of slight fatigue this afternoon.
A strong south-easter is howling again. Roaring across the bay rattling windows and sending hats flying. It’s good for drying washing and wind surfing. We watched one wind surfer zipping across the ocean. He must have been going about 30km or 40km/hour.
Seeing Fish Hoek beach above, I was reminded of this old photo of Fish Hoek beach posted on Facebook today by the FH Museum. This must have been at least 100 years ago…
Comparison…mine was taken much closer. Elsie’s Peak stays the same.
Today I was out on the balcony when I noticed an elderly gent at the house next door (Simon’s Town side). He looked like he was English (very pale – lacking some sunshine!). I waved and greeted and asked how long he was to be here. “3 months!” he called indeed in an English accent, raising his voice to be heard above the wind. “Yay! Welcome!” I responded. So it seems we may have some neighbourly peace til March at least. No more parties at that house I think, unless he’s a dark horse and suddenly produces a bunch of party-loving drunken geriatrics!
I have persuaded the guests who came into the cottage yesterday to stay another night. I have this weekend available so before I put it onto FB, I asked if they wanted it. They said they’d stay one night and decide if they want to stay longer. I gave them a reduced rate that was still good for me because I don’t have to clean, strip and remake the beds and do the laundry. If they leave on Sunday, it will work perfectly, because next guests arrive on Tuesday for 6 nights.
So good to feel back to normal. Grateful!
For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people.
The best is yet to come – we are only passing through.
Keep the smile going.
God bless you.
In His Grip,
Helga xx 🙂
