Sunday 15 August 2021, Day 20 of Level 3. 😷
Corona Gratitude 🙏
#grateful for a me-catchup day, writing two blogposts for the week ahead, tidying up my desk and planning the work week ahead; for the most stunning summer day at 21C, and tomorrow will be even better; with beautiful wisps of clouds this afternoon; for an afternoon walk to Camps Bay’s Woolies and Pick n Pay, happy to see a former manager back at the latter and told that all the previous new managers have left the store again; for an invitation to the lovely home of Shubha Shuckla, let as Aquatic Villa, with a beautiful view over Camps Bay, the ocean, and the spectacular sunset tonight, spoilt with bubbly, cheese, bread, crackers and dips, and a chocolate and fruit ending; for the loud music of last night and tonight finishing off at 23h00 🙏; for Pick n Pay ASAP! App delivering the cat food this morning; and for being happy, healthy, and free. 🙏💙

The Corona Virus Lockdown (Level 5), announced by our President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier to commence on 27 March 2020 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 2021, extended but relaxed on 1 February, and relaxed back to Level 1 on 1 March 2021, moved back to Adjusted Level 2 on 31 May, moved back to level 3 on 16 June, and moved back to Adjusted Level 4 on 28 June, extended by two weeks on 11 July, and returned to Level 3 on 26 July, 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.
