Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 58 of Level 3 Adjusted, 21 February 2021.


Sunday 21 February 2021, Day 58 of Level 3 Adjusted, Day 333 of Lockdown 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for lovely rain overnight and this morning; for an energetic walk and litter pick up this morning with Imtiaz, challenged by 200 steps between Victoria Road and Kloof Road with lots of litter, making up my steps goal for the day; for a fabulous sleep this afternoon; for Minsky coming home early this morning, after having galavanted somewhere in the night, so scared that something had happened to her; for a clean up at the Tidal Pool late this afternoon, Bakoven brothers Marc and Finn joining us too; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙

Imtiaz took strain with the amount of litter on the steps we walked up, but I helped him. I gave him a smoke break after we got to the top, and we enjoyed the view from a bench onto Clifton 4th Beach nearby . He was not very happy about having had to do this. 😱 We get on well, but his Taurean side came out strongly today, clashing with my Sag.

It was a coolish day at 22C, and very quiet at the Tidal Pool, with relatively little litter. A Discovery 200 points day.

The Corona Virus Lockdown (Level 5), announced by our President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier to commence on 27 March and to continue until 16 April, subsequently extended to 30 April, lowered to Level 4 from 1 May, lowered to Level 3 from 1 June, lowered to Level 2 from 18 August, lowered to Level 1 from 21 September, and moved back to Adjusted Level 3 from 29 December,  extended to 15 February on 11 January, and extended but relaxed on 1 February, is an unprecedented event in my lifetime. I am posting my daily Facebook post to journal this Corona Lockdown Journey, perhaps to serve as material for a future Book.
