Operation Oysterhood: 10 November

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

Somewhere, pigs are flying!

A tense Tuesday sprinkled with good news on all fronts. The issued arrest warrant is so bewildering that everything else somehow pales in comparison.

I heard the news on my way to Kalk Bay to see Dawn Garisch about a safe possibility of launching her next book in real life. It is all looking better than good.

There was editing, proofreading, designing, running, despairing, admin, book delivering, pool cleaning, shopping, Skype with Mom, Krystian and Vatko (!), and the news that a dream debut author is considering publishing with Karavan Press. My morale was quite low this morning after a rather miserable night. But I work with amazing, inspiring people, and it is impossible to keep low for too long when they are around.

At the end of the busy day, I just wanted comfort food which I did not have to prepare myself. Obvious choice: HARU. It was time to try their burgers. They are fantastic! My only regret was that my love had to work tonight and couldn’t be there. On Tuesdays, they have a ‘buy one, get one free’ special for burgers, but even in my starved state, I could not consider eating two myself. Next time!

Someone else in our household was eating for two today: Salieri. She was feeling quite ill yesterday and refused to eat all day long (highly unusual for my “traditionally built” Salieri), but today she made up for yesterday’s losses. She is purring next to the keyboard as I type. In other feline news: I took my love’s cat to the vet for a checkup. She is doing remarkably well, the vet said. We are all happy about that.

And now, my brain will no longer cooperate and my body wants a warm bed to rest in. So, good night, dear Readers out there! I hope you are all coping with the madness of it all, preferably better than me.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
