A graceful life means putting inner wellbeing before superficial things. I’d rather have no curtains for the light to shine in than expensive silk curtains with a dark destructive soul. Being a mother, every day I come into contact woth how important it is to provide a space for my toddler to thrive. How important it is to protect him, even from close family who display neglect and abandonment and only contact him when they are lonely, forcing him as a child into that adult role. As adults we move through life with these wounds and unconsciously hurt others and ourselves. Learning to connect the mind, body, soul, heart dots means a conscious family. We keep letting go of toxic to make space for grace.

#donttellmom I’ve been #playing with my #food woke up late today since I blocked off rooms to have the morning to myself. I had the last bit of my #homemade #granola and smiled. I always toast my granola just a little extra to get it really toasty. It makes people smile and say hmmmmm, for me, my heart goes soft and I remember grandpa and how he’d love all his crunchy eats to be just a bit more toasted than normal. Today I really had fun and added some #lemon blossoms, #rosemary and #clover #flowers and loads of #chia #sesame #sunflower #lindseed #pistacchio #almonds #walnuts #gojiberries #cranberries #cinnamon and #vanilla and a good old dollop of playfulness #yum #love #eat #now #hungry #feedme #bliss #weekend

House of Grace diaries. There’s been such magic happening here at the house. I have been considering sharing some of it. Yesterday my guests left after a short two day stay. Before they left, they have me a beautiful plant with a special cactus in it. It was a thank you. August, the guy who booked got here with a severe food poisoning and he looked like walking dead. This season I’ve had so many people come here just to heal. While I wasn’t as open with my natural remedies to all of them and in some cases just offered some nursing and care, in August’s case they were open. I gave him three doses of a special potion and in no time at all he felt better. I prepared a vegetarian meal for his partner Christina as I knew she wouldn’t be at peace going out to eat with her boyfriend being sick at home. She joined me for dinner. It wa so lovely to hear about her life. She’s from Denmark and a pastry chef there. She had the most beautiful tattoos and was such a gentle soul. August spent the time just resting which is something he wouldn’t normally get to do. I don’t own a guesthouse. I have a home. A place where people come to be. Just be. Be themselves. All of you is welcome here. Sick. Happy, peaceful, Ive even had people looking to be loved and acknowledged by throwing tantrums. While those guests are not my favorite, that’s where the true practice of compassion and love is found. I get to be a housewife and mom everyday with all my guests and I get to live a life I love as a medicine woman. Every single guest this season has been a special one. And each has left a little story in my heart!

It’s 16:08 and I’ve only just finished washing the breakfast dishes. I had such an amazing day. Kristin is back to visit us from Germany for the third time and this time she has friends. At breakfast, I laid out Champaign glasses so we could finish the rest of the bottle I opened yesterday to welcome her back home. Naturally I forgot to have it at the table and when they left to the biscuit mill this morning I realized it would be such a waste not to finish the bottle. Now anyone who knows me knows I can go months and perhaps years without alcohol but washing dishes while sipping on Champaign was so delightful. I had an outthere thought while washing those dishes. My good friend David Wilkinson senior from Oxford and I had a conversation while I was in Oxford. His wife, Doreen believed that there was a tree spirit that grew trees. What if everything has a spirit. Like what if that’s why alcohol is called a spirit and what if alcohol when acknowledged or consumed dominates the spirit of time. So perhaps we take this spirit to preserve moments like we would in a ceremony..when alcohol is taken in love and the absence of fear... anyways... i did say the thought was bizarre...I’m done with the dishes and time again (for the twenty fourth thime today) to cuddle with my boy who seems to be reaching out for hugs and kisses. What are your thoughts on energy or spirit?

There’s no better feeling than when my guests feel so well rested that they’re not up yet. So today I took time to do some hair and make up and I guess I will play madam of the manor. I feel so blessed to have the most amazing guests. I get to be a house wife and love and nurture everyone who visits and they all leave as family. I feel so blessed! How has your festive season been and what’s making you feel lucky/blessed today?

I had been noticing this protrusion for a few days now but didn’t take time to hang out and discover. Turns out it’s the birth of a whole generation of new New leaves that will form a new crown. This is so beautiful to observe. #cycads #trees May look like #palmtrees but they’re not closely related. They actually go back to #Jurassic times with little alteration to their original form compared to other plants. They face the threat of going #extinct and I #feel #blessed to be the #custodian of one. It’s trunk stands more than a meter and a half tall and it’s also just produced two cones. #garden #comelovewithus #thehouseofgrace @ The House of Grace

The old (probably hand) crafted, curved historic staircase and the 1869 bar counter that doubles as a welcome desk. The thing that I love most in the picture is my garden hat at the end of the staircase. It says one thing to me...garden time! It’s also one of my favourite places, sometimes the place where I meet and greet my guests (if they don’t meet me in the garden first) who often turn into life long friends!

While the water shortages in Cape Town pose a serious threat to the hospiatily industry, I took some action, pulled out 300 square meters of grass that would have otherwise sucked up water and I've got pots of lemons and herbs that I will use to prepare meals. Its also so much more inviting that I've sat on the nest chair reading a book for the past few days while the sun sets. I've kept a little patch of grass for afternoon tea parties in the future. I am sure in a month it will look very different. I spend about three hours in the garden everyday.

Soon it will feel like an old french food garden. Everyday is a labour of love with no better feeling that eating from the garden daily.

Experience self catering in Simons Town with some history. Close to penguins, boulders beach, cape point and water activities. Built in 1853, The House of Grace
is home to Simons Towns very first Chapel. When I moved in, it was already a studio so I kept it that way. I've had my House blessing ceremony in The Chapel and have even had weddings and sacred chanting and other ceremonies in the Chapel. When I renovated the Chapel, I did the opposite of make it pretty. I intentionally tried my best to make it feel old. I ripped all the tiles off in the kitchen and bathroom and redid it with white cement and then took time to age the walls. I also created a feature wall seen behind the Beds that mimic old roof tiles that are aged and ancient. It really feels like you're sleeping in an old lost holy place.

Some interesting History about the Chapel, if you've ever been to Millers Point, Mr Miller lived at the main house and when he did, The Chapel was his office. His safe is still in the chapel, untouched.

Its the only unit with an option of either Bed and Breakfast or self-catering. While this studio is perfect for two people, we can accommodate up to four people in the studio by prior arrangement.

5 out of 5. The break away from home was just what me and my husband needed. I was so thankful for the body massages we got from Estee and her friend. The King size bed was welcoming and the lovely warm bedding I welcomed on that cold Saturday evening. Estee is very friendly and her warm, caring spirit I will never forget. The lovely supper and awesome breakfast prepared by her was appreciated. Her husband's hospitality and spending time with them in the house was very welcoming. May God bless the couple abundantly.
The owner of the guest house was warm and welcoming. I loved the space in the bedroom as well as the beautiful bedding and big bed we slept on. The food was lovely and the massage treatment received was wonderful. I was so blessed to stay at House of Grace. I was treated like a princess. You don't even hear the traffic at all and the view out of the window was awesome. I felt close to my God. The warm bedding and heater in the room was great and much appreciated.
Wir haben uns in Simons Town und im House of Grace sehr wohl gefühlt, schade das wir nur so kurz dort waren. Die Haus Dame mit ihrer freundlichen Art gab uns gute Tipps die uns sehr geholfen haben. Dieses Zusammenspiel ergibt ein besonders Erlebnis. Ich würde jedem raten dort zu übernachten wenn man plant in diese Gegend zu gehen denn hier wird Herzlichkeit und Freundlichkeit gross geschrieben. Es ist einfach schön dort. Denken gerne an das Hause of Grace und die schönen Dinge die wir dort erlebt haben.
