One for the Ladies

I’t s National Women’s Day in South Africa, so here’s wishing women all around the world an extra-special day, and a rose to go with that 🙂

ROSE for Women's Day

My day started with a magic yoga class, reminded by our teacher to dedicate our practise to acknowledging ourselves and the special women in our lives. On that note, I’d like to share a lovely site with you: Woman of Worth, by a fabulous fellow South African.

Next I discovered the latest local Oprah Magazine, which comes with a free CD. This includes inspirational poetry, such as Maya Angelou’s Phenomenal Woman, so thanks to O for that!

Then, for something harder-core, we took a spin out to Zwartkops raceway where Women in Motorsport were celebrating the day. Of course the guys got their turn too, most notably on the gnarly endurocross circuit, but the ladies had a blast!

Now it’s time to chill, so Ill leave you with a quote:

“A woman’s beauty does not belong to her alone. It is part of the bounty she brings into the world. She has a duty to share it.” – J.M. COETZEE

Well, we sure were blessed with a glorious day, before today’s cold crept in.
I never buy Oprah’s mag, but thanks for the hint about the CD *Cin dashes out to the local Woolies*

Apparently Woolies was handing out flowers yesterday too, but I missed those…must’ve got my O from the wrong branch 🙂
