I always enjoy these sorts of posts which Lecy https://asimplergrace.blogspot.co.za/ does. One writes about what they would discuss if they met a friend for coffee. Any thoughts or concerns are shared and it is an enjoyable way to open up about what is on your mind.
If we met for coffee, I’d suggest one of my favourite places that do the best toasted sandwiches. We’ll request a table by the window and sit warming up as the sun streams in and I’ll ask how you’ve been and what you got up to over the weekend.
I’d show you the pictures I took over the weekend in Greyton. We spent another weekend in Hermanus and it was such a treat to get warm weather in the middle of winter. Saturday we drove through to Greyton and found a stunning restaurant where we ate outside. I’d show you some pictures I took over the weekend while we wait for our coffee to arrive.
T-shirts in winter – that is how warm it was!
If we met for coffee I’d tell you that the drought is really getting me down and I’m finding the 50 litres per day tricky at times. I used to moan about laundry – try having a full laundry basket and water restrictions. Before the drought I’d enjoy a bath after a long day. I’d read a book and sip tea. Or wine – lets be honest the choice of refreshment depended on the day I’d had. I cannot do that in a start-stop shower while I worry if I’ve gone over 90 seconds. Washing dishes and saving every drop. Not flushing whenever possible (and then using grey water saved from around the house. It isn’t fun. Not having water in the taps in the office bathroom toilets. Hello to buying loads of wet wipes. It has been like this (50 litres per person) since 1st February but feels alot longer.
I’d apologise for moaning and we’d sip our coffee and focus on positive things. Dam levels are rising and we’ve had amazing rain, I need to remember this.
We’d order our lunch and I’d recommend my favourite toasted sandwich – chicken mayo, bacon and avo (delicious combo). While we wait for our food, you’d tell me about work and what you are enjoying at the moment.
We’d talk about My Kitchen Rules South Africa – I love reality shows and cooking programmes so combine the two and I’m watching every episode! Just finished watching the Australian My Kitchen Rules.
We’d eat our lunch and I’d tell you that I’m looking forward to Mark’s birthday (I love celebrating my husband’s birthday as much as my own). I’m doing a countdown until his special day (4 more sleeps). ❤
As the bill arrives, we’d say goodbye and agree to meet again soon. Next time, you choose the place 🙂
