Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 115 of Level 1, 23 January 2022



Sunday 23 January 2022, Day 115 of Level 1 😷

Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a catch-up day, on sleep especially, over 9 hours in total, not all in one go; for going shopping at Woolworths Camps Bay and finding what I was looking for, especially a birthday cake; for sitting down and writing most of a client newsletter; for a lovely late afternoon celebration of the birthdays of Capricornians Alex von Ulmenstein Mullerie Taljaard and Hans-Werner Klein, starting with sweet treats and moving to savouries, Mullerie bringing a double gift of Boerenkaas and Rose Klein the most delicious cheese straw type baking ❤️❤️; for a beautiful day and evening, with no wind at all, able to have candles burning outside; for the garage door working again; for it being so delightfully quiet in our building; 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,  returned to Level 3 on 26 July, returned to Level 2 on 13 September, returned to Level 1 on 1 October,  and the Curfew Curfew lifted on 30 December 2021 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.
