crepes and caterpillar juice

thismorning we went out for brunch. I have problems with food markets. there is just so much food and it looks amazing and smells amazing, my senses go into overdrive - making it very difficult to actually choose something to eat. today, however, it was easy to settle with crepes

everytime i eat crepes i remember paris in autumn, walking along the rue mouffetard eating chocolate crepes [yes it does sound pathetically romantic] so today we ate crepes. and because we were at an organic food market we had fresh apple juice.ilove fresh apple juice -the layer of apple foam on top, not so much- My sister commented that it was like drinking a caterpillar [which was disgustingly accurate] and now everytime i try drinking apple juice i see this little caterpillar face.

chuck. and other good things

the weekend is upon us* but lets get real. when its holidays i feel like i'm permanently in weekend-mode. I feel like i could go to bed and sleep until forever. [butfirst]

due to my sisters obession, i have fallen rather inlove with chuck. when it first came out i thought it was lame-and now im eating my words.

"My job on my set, I believe, is to first just love people and gain that trust with people where they know that I really do love them and care about their well-being, so that when they are running into problems, they will hopefully, at some point, come to me and ask me, 'What is your peace all about? What is your comfort all about? Where do you get your love? Where do you get your talents?' And I can turn to them and say without blinking, 'Jesus Christ.'"- Zachary Levi

[dear zachary. you are amazing.]
but in my heart, and on my list of priorities at the moment, this food is pretty much owning you. sorry.

today, when i was walking around the old muizenberg village with B, i found the prettiest felt roses. [you should buy them for me]

happy weekend time :) night

tuesdays child is full of grace

goodmorning children. If you were born on a tuesday then you supposedly have grace. I was born on a monday, which obviously makes me an exception to this little poem/rhyme thing.
[the biggest cupcake picture i could find. it looks amazing but there is no way ill be baking today- im still trying to finish my christmas biscuits]

it was happy and sunny when i woke up, and it still is, but now the wind is blowing so hard i can't go outside for fear of being blown over.

Im re-reading Harry Potter. War&Peace was a bit too heavy for me while suntanning. ilove Harry Potter, id forgotten just how much i enjoyed reading them.

today. today today today. this morning was lovely. we went out for breakfast.
[ive had this stuck in my head the whole day]
We're not grey people, we're not dirty, we're not mean.
We love everybody, but we do as we think.
When the weather's fine
we go fishing or go swimming in the sea.
We're always happy,
life's for living, yeah, that's our philosophy.

and i bought a new bag. and the weather is beautiful [yesterday it sucked. but it was still fun walking on the beach with you j] so i have lots to be thankful for

[i love summers in capetown-when there is no wind-] but then,
the kind of sadness you feel in the pit of your stomach

[i wasnt finished daydreaming]

gold dust

today, i am wearing my princess dress. [C thankyou for fixing it] it's goldsilk and goes all the way to the floor and it's one of those things that makes me feel pretty when i dont really look it.
it is a golden day. the sunshine is golden, my dress is golden, my nailpolish is golden and hopefully by this evening my legs will be golden too*

lastnight i slept under the stars, and i watched the sun rise thismorning. amazingly, wonderfully, beautiful.

ah. hot days make me feel sleepy. maybe ill go sleep in the sun. have a happy day*

i have, the most beautiful nailpolish in the world

interesting fact about me #8: i hate bruises. there is just something about blood pooling under the surface of your skin that makes me want to gag. I have a huge bruise on my leg at the moment. I have to avoid thinking about it when i put cream on. bleh.

interesting fact #9: second on the list of things that i hate, are moles. on peoples skin. gross.

interesting fact #10: the rebel in me loves boys with tattoos. [yes i am that shallow]

off to have italian* night

ghosts can't cry

[how cute is this picture?]
happy monday. happy cupcake monday. yes im a slacker i know, and im sorry.
[listening to jax panik. on repeat.]

today was the most amazing day we've had in a while. and i am now thoroughly sick of the sun* I need to be distracted. so i dont over-think things and so i can forget about this feeling in my stomach. the best distraction today has been Henry James's a portrait of a lady- im almost done* and i can be distracted tonight because we're having a themed family dinner :) [yes my family is that cute]

and C* happy happy birthday. i hope you had a wonderful day filled with sunshine and wishes.
