Today I am thankful for.....

.....the perfect day.
This morning, when I woke up, it was raining outside. I've always loved waking up to rain so I stayed in bed, a bit later than usual, just to listen to the sound of the raindrops splashing against my window. I silently wished that  I could lay like that a little bit longer but I had little Korean kiddos to teach so I got up, had a quick breakfast, hastily got dresses and was just about to grab my umbrella when my phone rang. It was my co-teacher who happily informed me that all classes got cancelled for today due to the "Typhoon".

Now, the rain falling outside was hardly what I'd call a Typhoon and not much worse that your average rainy day in Cape-Town, but who was I to argue? So I immediately got back into my pj's, pulled the covers over me and  listening to rain until I fell asleep again. I love my kids, don't get me wrong, but no school today? Hurray!!!!!!!!

The rest of my day consisted of napping until afternoon hours, reading, tea with a friend, peaches and strawberry yogurt, a walk with my neighbour and her  dog, a quick workout in the gym, a cup of cinnamon milk and an early night!!!

Now that's what I call a perfect day!
