The Weekender Series – Feeling Grateful & Big Catchups

In addition to blog more I’ve introduced a new series titled ‘The Weekender’. I’ll include visuals of what I wore, views, location and food. I’ve introduced a new series titled ‘The Weekender’. I’ll compile images from both the weekday and weekend. It’s a vlog but written, titled, the weekender.

Happy New Year! I am so delayed with this post because a lot was going on during the end of the Christmas season going into the new year. But I am back and feeling inspired to get back at it. Join me as I share the last few days of 2021 going into the new year.

December 16

Kickstarting the day with an easy homemade iced coffee [ Read Here: My Easy Homemade Iced Coffee Recipe ]. I spent most of my doing content that was scheduled to be done. For the past few days all I’ve been doing with was content creating and by this day I was so exhausted but I made certain to complete what needed to be done but to also make sure I was taking it easy. J and I went for some ice-cream and to the cinema with our siblings and watched the premier of the new Spider-Man: No Way Home movie. It was so fun and the atmosphere in the cinema was incredible (you can’t hold a Marvel fan from the emotion). If you have not seen it as yet I recommend you do. With Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, our friendly neighborhood web-slinger is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life as Peter Parker from the high stakes of being a superhero. When Peter asks for help from Doctor Strange, the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man. We had chicken breasts and a yummy butternut squash and ended the evening satisfied with waffles.

Starting the day off with a light, breakfast courtesy of J. It was so good! As always I proceeded with the remaining content I needed to get done and also work on other projects. I went out for an errand but came back home early enough to enjoy lunch, enjoy iced coffee and finish off You on Netflix.

Not an easy day at all. My family and I were woken up by the sad news of my paternal grandfather’s passing. He was ill for a bit but I had so much hope in him recovering and getting back home. It was and honestly still is so painful to experience and it hit home really deep for me because I immediately went through a moment of missing and thinking about the passing of my maternal grandfather and my mom. Of course death is not easy at all and honestly my mom’s hits the hardest. But overall it’s been difficult but I’ve been trusting God with EVERYTHING and I know they are all in better spaces and not experiencing the pain the felt while here. They have each played such important roles in my life and although I lost my maternal ‘oupa’ as I would call him in 2009 and my mother in the year 2011, it’s still fresh. I’m grateful for the times and memories we made together. The life lessons and discipline that came in the form of love. If you are experiencing pain and sadness due to the lost of a loved one I want you to know that you’re not alone and may the higher forces comfort you during this period. Sending you love and light.

The adjustment time they call it. A few days after burying my grandfather and Christmas was not the same. I got to spend Christmas with J and his family who were so welcoming and warm. So appreciative of that.

Christmas on film.

Ending the year easy with movies and lazing in bed. I’ve also been enjoying playing some new albums in the background like Adele and Summer Walker. I enjoyed the Netflix movie directed by Halle Berry titled ‘Bruised. Check it out.
