Operation Oysterhood: 15 November

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

Early Sunday breakfast with a view at The Bakery on the Jordan Wine Estate was a real treat. I love Eggs Benedict, but not all restaurants know how to prepare the dish in a way that is really and truly what it can be. The Bakery does. Great coffee, too. And right now, a special on their olive oil: buy two bottles (0,5l, cold extracted, extra virgin) for R98 each and get one free. A real bargain! They also sell giant chocolate-chip cookies. We returned home with a bag full of goodies and smiles on our faces.

Despite it being Sunday, a little bit of work had to be done in the late morning, but then it was time for another treat: Sunday lunch with friends and this view …

It was one of those Sunday lunches that turned into a dinner, although we had so much lovely food in the afternoon that we were having bubbly only for ‘dinner/dessert’.

Batteries recharged. I think I am ready to face another week of chasing deadlines. Maybe …

Good night.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
