Sentence a day: June edition

Midweek confessions 2

I got this idea from Lindsay  You sum up a month with a sentence (sometimes more) per day.  It is basically a snapshot of your month!  Remembering a month day by day is not easy so I keep an electronic record and each day just add the previous day’s highlight or happenings and there you go – 30 days condensed.

Friday 1st June 2018:  Weekend – hooray! Had the most delicious butter chicken for dinner – awesome start to the weekend.

Saturday 2nd June 2018:  Cycling today is out because of the rain.  Had breakfast out and then did a bit of shopping.

Sunday 3rd June 2018:  Hubby went to Kirstenbosch early this morning and I read and drank tea in bed.  We made brunch when hubby got back and then in the afternoon went to gym.  I ran 4 km’s, came home to change and then went to the movies.  Watched “Life of the party” with Melissa McCarthy – brilliant movie.  Had dinner at Cattle Baron and came home for dessert (Dunkin Donuts).

Monday 4th June 2018:  Busy day, had an easy but relatively healthy dinner and watched My Kitchen Rules South Africa.

Tuesday 5th June 2018:  We went to the butcher after work, then to gym and afterwards did grocery shopping.

Wednesday 6th June 2018:  Warm day, said goodbye dry month and had drinks outside

Thursday 7th June 2018:  My Mom got most of her test results and they are clear.  So so so so extremely relieved!!

Friday 8th June 2018:   Delicious curry for dinner – I think this is my new favourite dinner.  Perfect for the cold weather.

Saturday 9th June 2018:  Rain and lots of it!  It cleared up for a bit in the afternoon and Mark went to Kirstenbosch to get a landscape photo (it looked awesome).  I pottered around catching up on laundry and started a James Patterson book (The store).  Poured more with rain later in the afternoon.

Sunday 10th June 2018:  Went to Langebaan and cycled 32 km’s.  Not my best cycle – distance or speed.  Tried a really steep hill and was exhausted afterwards.  Came home and had a late lunch and chilled watching “Life in Pieces”, caught up on “My Kitchen Rules Australia”.

Monday 11th June 2018:  Busy day so we had an easy supper after work.  Mark had work to do so I watched a horror (“Visions”) while I did some ironing.  I guessed the ending very quickly – think I’ve seen too many horrors and thrillers!

Tuesday 12th June 2018:  Ran 4.2 km’s after work.

Wednesday 13th June 2018:  Lunch with a friend from work, ended an hour early and had dinner at Cattle Baron.

Thursday 14th June 2018:  Rain!

Friday 15th June 2018:  Start of FIFA World Cup.  Got snacks after work to enjoy while we watched the soccer.

Saturday 16th June 2018:  Cycled 42 km’s and had lunch at Ginja Beanz in Langebaan.

Sunday 17th June 2018:  Read with tea in bed and then went for brunch at Fraiche Ayres. Went to play squash in the afternoon – I’m so out of practice!

Monday 18th June 2018:  Went to do a quick grocery shop after work and had an easy dinner.  Frozen yoghurt for dessert.

Tuesday 19th June 2018:  Cold and rainy.  Went to have dinner at Cattle Baron.

Wednesday 20th June 2018:  Ran 4km’s after work.

Thursday 21st June 2018: So cold! Thank goodness for heaters.

Friday 22nd June 2018:  Delicious curry for supper – seems to be our weekend routine at the moment and I love it! So glad the weekend is here and can sleep late for 2 mornings.

Saturday 23rd June 2018:  Hubby went to Kirstenbosch and Newlands to take more landscape photos and I drank tea and read in bed.  We had lunch at Rambling Rose and then took a drive to Cape Point.  We both hadn’t been in so many years and even in the rain it was stunning.

Sunday 24th June 2018:  Went shopping and had lunch with a friend.  Woolies had some amazing promotions on and I saved quite a lot while stocking up on new pajamas and a cardigan.

Monday 25th June 2018:  Heard my Mom is back in hospital and being treated for a UTI while they run more tests.  Hopefully she can leave after 5 days.  Had dinner (sushi) with a friend from work and her cousin.

Tuesday 26th June 2018:  Cleaned after work and then treated ourselves to dinner out.

Wednesday 27th June 2018:  Horrible headache for most of the day.

Thursday 28th June 2018:  My Mom could leave the hospital today.  I ran 4.2km’s after work.

Friday 29th June 2018:  Friday at last.  Had a delicious curry for dinner.

Saturday 30th June 2018:  Had lunch at Rambling Rose and then took a drive to Cape Point.

So that was my month.  Reading back, I can see how often I mention food haha!

  1. I’m so glad for your mom’s good test results and that she left the hospital! I loved reading all your sentences. One of these months I will remember to do this!


  2. Your mom’s good test results were the only things that trumped all the good reading, eating and running going on in your month! I might just have to try this in August. I’ll do a dry run in July and see how many times the words pizza, soccer and pizza come up. (Wait, was that pizza twice?)


    • I hope you do one of these posts – they are so much fun to read. Lindsay does them and I always enjoy seeing a whole month in a snapshot 🙂
      Pizza is always good – reminds me I haven’t had in a while – I need to fix that!
      Are you enjoying the FIFA World Cup so far?


      • I am enjoying the cup – but the teams we support are all gone! We’ll be happy to support great matches, though, no matter who plays. Are you? Also, I am definitely doing this for August!


      • Unfortunately South Africa wasn’t playing but we had a competition at work and I drew Germany. I was disappointed with their last game – been so many surprises so far! But still enjoying the other matches.


  3. Sounds like a good month. I hope your mom is continuing to do well – and that she didn’t have to stay in the hospital for too long. Yay for some good deals, seeing Life of the Party (loved that movie too!!), and reading in bed. 🙂



    • Yes the five days was better than some of her longer stays. I really hope that the rest of 2018 is less eventful for my parents – less hospital visits and tests and more enjoying their retirement.

      I want to watch that movie again because it was so funny. When she is giving her presentation to the class and everything goes wrong. I’m sitting at my desk giggling now – just thinking of it.
