We enjoy Family Day twice a year ( 2nd Saturday in April and the last Saturday in November an Easter and Christmas craft market ).This November was fortuitously a sunny day in between rainy days. Our garden was looking wonderfully green. Meeting new faces and catching up with family news created a buzz of conversations. Many family members shared their spread, and there were some tasty spicy foods as well as Paul’s bucket of KFC that he dished out to everyone as a starter. There were some new faces this year as well as the regulars. On this occasion residents were expected to braai their own meat on skottel braais or charcoal braais. And so a new traditional begins. Cooking one’s own food. Everyone found out that they could actually cook and that standing around a braai in the good old South African tradition is a fun activity. Crafters sold some of their wares. Everyone went home smiling.
