Corona Gratitude 🙏
#Gratitude for a sunny day today, despite it still being a chilly 14C as a result of a light South Easter, August looking like a wintry month all the way through; for the assistance I received from Ash Perremore Anthea Fletcher and Zoe Harbourne, who all tried to help me with my Amazon technical problem, not having lost hope yet to overcome it; for the amazing news today, that will bring an end to a five year trauma linked to my house in Hermanus, which should be confirmed tomorrow 🙏💙, Johan Prins having been sent to my Tourist Guide class with a purpose, and us becoming friends, another life lesson in the making, celebrating with a 🍷; for a walk through Camps Bay, very quiet again; for chats to Jenny Stephens, Stuart Bailey, and Johan x 2; for all the love in Camps Bay today, the sky having so many 💙-clouds 🙏💙; for a Discovery Gameboard play as well as a Cashback for low kilometers driven last month 💙; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙
My Blogpost today was a Review of my Lunch at Villa 47 yesterday, a feast and excellent value for money.
I’m not giving up on the Amazon challenge, feeling that I’m getting closer to finding someone who understands the Amazon job application process technically. At least I know a lot more about my iPhone, browsers, and what the Amazon company stands for, trying to apply its standards and principles already. This is one of two German-sparking jobs that came to me, not looking for a job, but I love the idea of working again, alongside my Tourist Guiding when that takes off again.
Chef Charles Hendricks of The Cheesecake Checkout came to present a Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake to me today, asking for advice on how to market his cheesecake business. Jenny and I will do a Taste Test tomorrow. Chef Charles is a cat lover too. 😼😼
And speaking of cats, two drenched ones have just rushed back inside, sopping wet from the surprise rain ☔️.
The Events Industry is making a silent but bold statement tonight, lighting up our City icons to attract attention to this industry seeing red in not being able to earn an income. 😥❤️
Bilboa reopens in Camps Bay tomorrow.

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, and lowered to Level 3 from 1 June, 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.
