charmingly rustic light filled little cottage by the sea, be mine?
it’s freedom day in south africa today, which also meant a very long and freeing weekend for whoever took off monday as i did. i filled my days & nights with a sleeping late, watching mad men & 30 rock, drinking tea and red wine and gin & dry lemon with friends, napping, eating eggs + avo on rye every breakfast, celebrating a birthday, beach walking etc… lit the first fire of the season – the days are getting shorter, colder and my feet are actually requiring socks in the evenings.

wouldn’t mind feeling like this right now.
just had to show you the way my sister-in-law wrapped all the homemade stollen & cookies that she gave everyone at christmas (cut-out reindeer tags!):
i ate those cookies all at once. AT ONCE. more cookies (note the vanillekipferl / almond crescents, my favourite):
and some more holiday pics, just cos i miss it:
i didn’t take a lot of photos this holiday because i was either eating, reading, drinking, eating, lying in the sun, snoozing, eating, drinking, walking on the beach, riding my bike, eating, napping etc etc. you know? but i did wander onto the beach one evening before sunset to take these shots. the sky really was all pink & blue! maaagical.
going back to work on monday, but at least the weather will still be allowing this for the next few months…
hope you had a great holiday! all photos by Yosigo (bañistas means bathers in spanish)
ps: happy new years eve. please be safe on the roads, yo!
i’m on holiday for a wee while. just over 3 weeks to be exact, boom! i won’t be on the computer much (or at all, hopefully) – but i have set up some posts to go off like clockwork around here. so, to keep going with the summer / holiday spirit…. here are some lovely old beach pics for you:
From 1959 to 1963 my father took photos of ordinary people in Cape Town.
