Last night after a delicious dinner of pan-fried yellowtail and salmon served with creamed spinach, baby potatoes and Greek salad we watched an episode of Master Chef Australia. I have my own personal “master chef” in the form of my darling husband and although he does not cook like those poor pressurised contestants he is pretty close!
Lollz and I stayed up late to watch “Anne with an E” on Netflix. We are both thoroughly enjoying it. I read avidly as a child but although our local librarian highly recommended Anne of Green Gables, I was not drawn to it. I think it had something to do with the unattractive cover! I now realise what I missed!
On the subject of reading, I do have a book on the go during Lockdown. My friend, Sharon, in Cape Town, gave me “Eve’s War” when I was there a few weeks ago. I have just started it and it is awesome!
Although I only got to bed late last night my eyes popped open at 07:00 am. The Earl got up before me then I got ready for the day and Lollz was not far behind. Once again the day started with slightly overcast skies which cleared to bright sunshine by mid-morning and there was a bit of wind. For the first time since lockdown, I went to the shop. We were all in the mood for a treat so I added Magnum ice creams to the basket and got a few ingredients that I needed to bake some cupcakes! I very seldom bake but today I made HFLC chocolate treats. The recipe I used comes from “Low Carb is Lekker!” which Lekker means – nice!
Because they are low carb they are not particularly sweet – which suits me but some like it a tad sweeter so I added cream cheese icing and a Ferrero Rrocher chocolate for Lollz and gave it to her for her tea-break treat.
The Earl completed another project today which gave me great joy. A while ago I asked him to get one of those thingies that you can hang a garden hose on. He purchased it but did not get round to mounting it but now with all this time on his hands, it is done!
Yesterday on one of our Facebook groups our executive Mayor Paul Swart posted these words – Invowners van Kaap Agulhas, Ons dorpe was by 12uur vanmiddag vry van enige positief geregistreerde virus gevalle. Thanks to God.
Loosely translated – Residents of Cape Agulhas, At 12 noon today our towns were free of any confirmed positive Coronavirus incidents. Thanks to God.
That is reassuring but on another post I found this:-
