Thank gawd it’s Friday, mostly because it’s a warm and sunny 3 day weekend but also because this has not been a very good week (I’m a mess physically, with allergies, back problems that had me home from work yesterday so I could attend my first physio appointment, and now thanks to all this I’ve got a freaking throbbing headache). I thought I’d keep things simple today with photos from , the site I like to call the Brazilian . I love peeking into the homes of normal folks…there’s no over-decorating or over-styling here.

I’ve booked a table. The one outside under the tree. Food and wine and good company and a heavenly setting. The vineyard, the restaurant and tasting room in a converted farm cottage. at Franschhoek in the Valley of the Huguenots in South Africa. I don’t think it can get any better.
