Could this have been the longest week of the year?
Well, it certainly felt that way and so I’ve been looking forward to this weekend. So much so, that I decided to put this post together and share some of the things I look forward to this weekend.
In fact, I have a jam packed weekend but I’ll just share a few things on my list.
Mark your calendar!
Four Paarl wine producers are celebrating the annual waterblommetjie season during the Waterblommetjie Festival on Saturday, 1 September, from 09h00 till 16h00. This indigenous edible flower is only in season during late winter and early spring and will be showcased in a variety of ways during a fun-filled day.
Boland Cellar, Domaine Brahms, Rhebokskloof Wine Estate and Windmeul Cellar are located within a 5km radius, which makes it easy for festival-goers to visit all four participating wineries. Each venue has its own signature waterblommetjies dishes, fantastic wines and amazing entertainment.
A couple of weeks ago, I got a taste of what the festival will have in store when we visited the participating wineries and I can promise you that there’ll be something for the whole family! From water-infused gin to waterblommetjie ice-cream, you are in for a real treat.
Going full steam back into the gym recently after weeks of not doing a thing, my body really felt the pain. Who said there was a thing as muscle memory?
Well, it’s my own fault actually. I didn’t just start off with a quick and easy workout. I started off with a 60 minute Rumble class at the Gym which is basically a fast pace, circuit-based boxing class!
My muscles didn’t seem to remember any way of recovering after that class!!!
It literally felt like I had shackles on my ankles and elbows (yes elbows) and every time I laughed my entire right side pulled stiff.
Must be age catching up with me?
