Operation Oysterhood: 23 February

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

Letting my hair down at the end of the day.

I go through these weird phases. Basil. Fresh basil, I just can’t get enough of it right now.

Today was a good day. A morning of reading, some admin, my love stopped by for coffee, editing, lunch at HARU with Lester, who submitted the manuscript of his debut novel (!!!) to Karavan Press, more editing and then an hour of hanging out with the Cats next to the pool before it got too dark outside to read.

I meant to go walking on the beach today, but I ran out of time. It felt good, nevertheless, to simply get through a lot of the work planned for the day. And seeing Lester and talking stories, books, writers and, of course, Covid-19 (it’s impossible not to) over a delicious lunch was also good for the soul (although the Covid-19 conversation was full of sorrow).

Wait until you hear what the novel is about …! And if you haven’t discovered them yet, Lester’s stories are brilliant:

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

“Physical distancing remains one of the key strategies to curb this pandemic.”
