Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 18 of Level 3, 13 August 2021.



Friday 13 August 2021, Day 18 of Level 3 😷

Corona Gratitude 😷

#grateful for a fabulous Friday the 13th, happy and healthy after not feeling well yesterday; for a busy busy day, having to catch up on yesterday’s meetings which I had to cancel; for a hair colour by Isabella Page Morgan, postponing the cut to next week, as I ran out of time; for a lovely supportive meeting with Gaia Gift & Decor Boutique owner Landy Walker in the newkings boutique hotel at Zest Restaurant; for a wonderful Friday lunch at the home of Gary Peterson, on a perfect weather day, protected against the unseasonal South-Easter, shared with Rose Klein, Hans-Werner Klein, Terri and Dave, each one bringing something for the lunch; for good Utopia and Anatoli Status meetings; for a Bakoven walk, and for having the energy to do so; for dancing to Kfm; for a long phone chat with Gary about his exciting life; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙

The Sweet Award went to my dentist Dr Wim de Beer; the Sour Award went to Pick n Pay’s asap! App, a disaster, the second week running!

185 on Beach is literally … on the beach in Gordon’s Bay, superb views and service!

For the Lunch at Gary’s house Terri brought strawberries, bubbly and the lovely sourdough bread, Gary made a wonderful overnight-slow-cooked beef stew with brown rice and lentils; I brought the salad (lettuce, coriander and radishes from my Veg garden) and a bottle of wine, and Rose a delicious Chocolate Mousse topped with grated white chocolate. #thankyou all for a wonderful spoil.

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.
