Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 39 of Level 3, 9 July 2020.



Thursday 9 July 2020, Day 39 of Level 3, after 66 days at Levels 5 and 4 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for wind, wind and wind this morning, and then rain, rain, and rain, lots more to come tomorrow ☔️; for being a busy writing 🐝, despite only having three hours of sleep, but I did catch up this afternoon, not being able to resist a nap; for dancing 💃 to Kfm in-between writing, and more to come; for being dry, warm, and safe; for not being Loadshedded as threatened; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙

I got home past midnight, and then had to Instagram all my pics of the day, and write my Facebook post. That didn’t leave me much time to sleep, Minsky being my alarm clock early in the morning, when she asks for some breakfast. 🐱

I had bad news about wind damage to my house in Hermanus, it having been so strong this morning that two doors were literally sucked out, before the rain arrived there. 😢😢😢😢

I wrote a story about a Virtual High Tea launch of a new cookery book called ‘Temptations’, loving the name, taking place at 3 pm on Sunday.

Bestseller ‘Temptations’ Cookbook ‘fattens the curve’, launch celebrated virtually with a High Tea on Sunday 12 July, features top Cape Town restaurateur!

I also wrote a mini review about our amazing dinner last night at Quentin at Oakhurst Barn ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Once my steps are done, it’s off to bed for a movie and popcorn. 🍿🍷

SA Corona Status : 238339 cases 3720 deaths 😷😢

The Corona Virus Lockdown (Level 5), announced by our President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier to commence on 27 March and to continue until 16 April, subsequently extended to 30 April, lowered to Level 4 from 1 May, and lowered to Level 3 from 1 June, 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.
