Operation Oysterhood: 15 August

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

A socially distanced Sunday lunch: I braaied for my family today – my love and friends. It was the first time that I had to handle so much food on a braai at once, and it went … surprisingly well. Thank goodness only one person was watching, though – it wasn’t all exactly by the book. We had the perfect weather for an afternoon in the garden, and The Cats enjoyed having us there. Although it was difficult to explain to Salieri why she had to eat her boring, healthy food when there was sausage on the braai. I made up for it in the late afternoon by spending the rest of the day in bed watching TV with Salieri sleeping on my lap.

I read another book in the morning. The hunger for reading is back. Finally. And I have slept for three nights straight again, although the last one was with Mama TV on throughout the night. Oh, well – whatever works.

A good Sunday.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
