Operation Oysterhood: 23 April

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

Nancy, Monique and Lulu, designing a book

World Book Day – I did not realise until quite late into the day. Every day is a book day for me, and I will support a book celebration any day, too.

I had a very bookish day planned for today, involving reading, bookkeeping, book design and book proofs. In the morning, I went through the mental list of things to do, braced myself, had coffee, read for pleasure, got up and got going. Somewhere in the middle of it all, I aired my brain by cleaning the pool. And the washing machine ran throughout most of the day, doing the accumulated laundry. Clean bed sheets tonight. The small pleasures.

It is getting cold. I am grateful for my new winter slippers and the electric blanket in my bed.

My love and I had braai leftovers for dinner and watched some TV tonight, and we are both ready for quite a busy – work-wise and socially – weekend.

No sore cheeks. A few hours of sleep every night. Getting there; I can almost smell the Big Rest.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
