Friday Files - A Week And A Half

in #diary3 months ago

It's been a long, good, busy week. The first "normal", i.e. no public holiday week in a while. And we have been burning the candle at both ends.

Yesterday was, of course, kitchen day.



All in a day's work: the cooler weather means that the sourdough needs a little sun to work its magic before I finally turn it into rolls.




The days are shorter, the mornings darker and cooler. Gandalf is a wus. Watches through the window, above which live a family of Rock Martins. From there, he monitors the Cape Sparrow messy house nest-building. From his own, customised perch: the scratching post.

Friday (and the week) ended as it usually does - at the local.



With Selma doing what she does. Even with her phone.



They will join us at the market before saying good bye the feline family and the village and head back to Cape Town.

Until next time, be well

  • Twice a year Traci York hosts a challenge to bloggers to post daily for a month. I've participated (or tried) for three years I've known her via the blockchain. Twice I've succeeded. It's that time of the year again, and I'm giving it a go - on the Hive blockchain. Wordpress bloggers are also invited to participate.
