Friday gratitude

Hello from a very cold Cape Town!  Sun is shining but wow it is chilly at the moment.  Typing this with icy fingers while I wear layers of clothing and wonder if it is too soon to do a countdown until spring.

Been a busy but good week.  Quarter end this side so that always keeps me out of mischief and I finished up yesterday.  Last night hubby and I decided that last night we were too tired to cook so we went to a favourite restaurant and had a super chilled evening there.  Good food and drinks plus no dishes.  Yes please.

Friday means linking up with Lindsay http://theflynnigans.com/ Charlotte http://mypixieblog.com/ and Beth http://coffeeuntilcocktailsblog.com/  with my list of what made me happy during the week:

  • Yoga on Friday evening. What a relaxing and tranquil way to start the weekend.
  • Girls night on Saturday.  Had a great evening.

  •  

    Breakfast at Primi over the weekend.  I love slow weekend mornings where we can linger over a cappuccino and good food.

  • New yoga clothes for winter. Less excuse to skip a workout when I’m warm!
  • Chilli biltong with a crisp glass of wine after a long day
  • Getting the perfect card for my in-laws anniversary
  • Rain and the fact the dam levels are rising.
  • Having an article I wrote about fitness published online.
  • Date night with my ❤
  • Clean and tidy home – always makes me feel instantly organized!

    It is a long weekend for us and 3 day weekends are always welcome!  I’ve got yoga tonight after work.  Need to pop onto my in-laws to drop off their anniversary present before I go.  Then tomorrow we are going up the West Coast.  I’ve got a spa appointment and my nails cannot wait.

  1. It might be cool where you are but it’s starting to get warmer where I am and I’m so grateful for it. Today is a bit of a rainy day but most days this week we’ve been able to hang outside for awhile and that’s so great.

  2. Oooh a spa appointment sounds so good right about now! I feel like I haven’t had a manicure in some time so should really do something about that!

    What a lovely week you’ve had! Yay for slow weekends and dinners with friends and family time. PS: I always find that new clothing inspires me to workout more often!

    • It was so relaxing and I floated out there feeling super chilled! I chose a nail treatment with my manicure – so it looks very natural with just a shine but will hopefully strengthen my nails in time.

      Yes – new workout gear always makes me want to work out more!

  3. My best bet at girls’ night is when I take my daughters to the old ballgame! Tell me more about your winter yoga duds. I’m envisioning mittens and a tutleneck …
