Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 14 of Level 1, 14 October 2021



Thursday 14 October 2021, Day 14 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a lovely rainy start to the day; warming up to become a humid day, but cold now and more rain on the way tomorrow; for zero Loadshedding today after a heavy shedding week 😱; for a working morning; for my Dinkel poppyseed roll stop; for enough time to have my favorite Appeltaart at Labotessa and seeing owner Johann du Plessis there; for a quick shop at Fideli’s, seeing the newly engaged owner Chef Judi Fourie there; for a good Status meeting for Anatoli and Utopia, doing so well ; so happy that clients of mine loved the JAN experience in Nice last night 🙏 for a refreshing walk to the Tidal Pool; and for being happy, healthy, and free. 🙏💙

I was so careful to charge my FitBit this morning, to not repeat running out of battery power completely and not record my steps, as happened last week. Today I forgot it when I went to town, missing out on valuable steps. And in all that time it never charged. 😱

SA Corona Status: 2 914 827 cases 88506 deaths 19 899 964 vaccinations.

FitBit 7500 steps 5,5 km 👣

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, and returned to Level 1 on 1 October 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.
