Quick Update


  • Monday, dropped Mia at school – early, cardio at Waterstone VA, weights at Stellenbosch VA with Werner – first real gym day in a while, upgraded to WP 3.5.1 with Twenty Twelve theme, fetched Mia from Judo class – looks like good fun, watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

  • “He who has a ‘why’ to live, can bear with almost any ‘how’.” – Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)

  • Mia has figured out how to send photos via iMessage – her mom’s phone must be using a fair bit more data – so if you start getting photos from my number – you know who it was.
  • “You dodged a bullet there.” — Ernst, about relationships.

  • Saturday, Mia and I planted watermelon seeds in some potting soil, lunch at Babel – Babylonstoren – very good, dropped Mia at Roxy’s birthday party, drove to Greyton, Origin sunset session.
  • Sunday, Origin, swim, Campari and Croquet with Ernst in Greyton.
  • “Silo of health.” – Ernst, about mothers (you want to have children with).

  • How’s the health thing going? I pretty much undid the damage from 2012 – so far. 88.5Kg, ~19% body fat and I fit in a pair of jeans from 2004 again. If I trust the BIA machine I gained at least 1.5Kg muscle and lost 3Kg fat in January.

Have a fun week, crazy kids.
