Another glory day. Early up, bircher of my dreams, and a swim. That's right, A SWIM. In the depths of winter, where actually it was gloriously sunny and the Clovelly rock pool was a charming 19 degrees and I braved it for a good 6 minutes or so. And then sunned about on my towel in my bathers soaking in the vitamin D. It felt amazing, and a sign of things to come (even though I suspect the water will cool down a little more, before it starts getting warmer again, since it is only August).
I had a nap and ate some very good leftover cheesecake from my dinner party the night before (roasted maple strawberries with a gingernut base) and listened to a bit of JR. The light in my room was all golden and sunset-y and I felt rested and full.
