Hello Friday



My weekend is just over 3 hours away and I am SO glad!  It has been a  busy week – but a good one.  Just need some relaxation!  There is something about winter that just takes it out of me – I have less energy with the cold temperatures.

Anyway each Friday there is a link up with The Peaceful Posse which is hosted by Lindsay http://theflynnigans.com/  and Charlotte http://mypixieblog.com/

We list what made us happy during the week and I always enjoy seeing what fellow bloggers are up to and adding to their lists.

My list this week:

3 day weekend!  Mark and I took Friday off last week and went to Franschhoek.  We walked around and then had lunch at Franschhoek Station Pub and Grill.


Mark had their chicken schnitzel and I went with the cheese burger.

Even though it was a very cold day, we opted to sit outside and I was glad we’d layered up warmly.


Quick selfie with the love of my life 🙂

The rest of my gratitude list for the week:

  • Rain (and more is expected tomorrow)
  • Visiting my Father-in-law on Tuesday after work.  He had an op last week – it went well and the Dr is happy.
  • An Uncle of mine that had a serious health scare is on the mend.
  • Miktart
  • Awesome Wednesday evening spent relaxing and enjoying biltong and wine before dinner.  Great start to the evening
  • Movies after work on Thursday.  Watched “The House” with Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler – hilarious!
  • Debbie Macomber books
  • Found the new Oreo biscuits (peanut butter) for hubby.  He is thrilled!

What is on your gratitude list?

    • Totally agree – we nearly did 🙂


  3. Awww what a fun list (and love that pic of you both!). Looks like you had a great week 🙂 I’m German and a vegetarian which is definitely an oxymoron since I miss the food. Your pics made me drool 🙂

    Glad to hear your FIL and uncle are on the mend, hope you have a great weekend ahead! Xoxo
