Thanks to the dogs I’m up with the sunrise today.They reckon they saw or smelled something outside and went crazy. At first I was inclined to be grumpy with them but now, watching the sky change from dark to sunny, I’m thinking they did me a favour.
The first hint of direct sunlight is kissing the upper rows of Glencairn Heights on what is yet another perfect morning by the beach. We don’t get to see the summer sunrise from the house but winter, where it really matters is going to be a different story altogether.
The list of jobs on the house is drawing to a close. Not so much that there is nothing left to do but because we’ve pegged our return for Monday and most of the critical “get it fixed for the tenants” issues are resolved. Hopefully Mainway will return today and complete the bath and shower by Saturday as planned and we should focus on the last big job – the curtain rails.
In a sense it hasn’t been much of a holiday – we’ve both been exhausted – but it has been a change and a first step forward to a new direction in life. Plus, I haven’t had a Jhb-Stress-Chest since we arrived here.
No sense in sitting on the couch admiring the day. Time to head out for a run !
Magic 35min run to Long Beach, Simon’s Town and a walk on the beach with Sand’s. Good start to the day!
