Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 31 of Level 3, 26 August 2021Chef



Thursday 26 August 2021, Day 31 of Level 3 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for rain for most of the day, the weather not as wild as predicted; for an organized working morning; for my rolls waiting for me at Dinkel Bakery, the lovely Cain telling me that Gary Peterson had been there for coffee this morning; for stocking up on good old German Maggi liquid at the German Food Shop above Dinkel; for a quick shop at Continental Butchery on Kloof Street; for good Utopia and Anatoli status meetings, so good to see how well the bookings are looking for September, and how amazing the growth in Facebook and Instagram followers has been in the past week, due to Utopia being a #Datenightrestaurant Finalist in the Kfm #Bestofthecapeawards; for seeing Chef Jennifer Morris for the first time in about 2 years, bringing her her 2021 Top 10 Woman Chef prize of Adhara olive oil (Venishree Mayer) and having a cup of tea with her; for being spoilt by a Christmas Cake and a box of ingredients if I wanted to bake one myself too, with a Christmas wreath, sent by Chef Mynhardt Johannes Tobias Joubert V 🌹🌹🎄🎄🎄🎄; and for being happy, healthy, and free. 🙏💙

My Blogpost today was an introduction to Chef Prim Reddy, also a 2021 Top 10 Woman Chef, who needs little introduction

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.
