Operation Oysterhood: 16 April

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

Ladies’ lunch …

… but we did not drink the lovely pink wine as one of us (a doctor – medical, not literary) had to do serious work in the afternoon. The gorgeous bottle will have to wait for another occasion.

It felt so good to cook for my friends again and to talk about family and art and hope and life and the craziness of the times we are living in. The Ladies arrived in stunning dresses and wearing make-up, bringing their outer and inner loveliness into my garden and making me feel better about the world. It is impossible to despair with such amazing people in one’s life. My cup overflows with gratitude.

And in the evening I had leftovers with my love who opened a beautiful bottle of red for us and brought delicious chocolate cake and watched a little bit of tennis with me. It was a tough day for Rafa fans, but his opponent played excellent tennis and the better player won the match today.

As I often say: One can’t have everything. I did have a beautiful day no matter what.

And here is a video that always makes me laugh: Federer and Nadal

Good night.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
