Monday 19 April 2021, Day 50 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for the fire having burnt itself out, and for the hard work done by firefighters as well as persons who have helped accommodate UCT students, and who collected and donated supplies for the firefighters, pets, and students❤️; for a fabulous continuous 7 hour sleep; for a fire starting at a homeless structure at Maidens Cove this morning being extinguished very quickly ❤️ ; for getting my writing work done smoothly; for a shopping walk to Pick n Pay and Woolies; for a much cooler day at 21C, and very windy, not good for the firefighting; for a second power walk, having to fit it in before a meeting, choosing two sets of steps, each with 100 steps, one uphill and another downhill, protected against the wind on the paths, but almost blown over on Camps Bay Drive, connecting the two paths, gaining 300 Discovery points; for a productive Camps Bay Ratepayers Association Committee Zoom meeting; for the good service from Charlene Shapiro of CNC Products, dropping off an ordered bulk pack of mini Smarties 💙❤️, and for being happy, healthy, and free. 🙏💙

My blogpost today was about the Fire, and the history of each of the buildings which burnt down.

Devastating fire destroys parts of UCT, historical Mostert’s Mill, Rhodes Memorial Restaurant, not yet under control!

I’ve just had a lovely catch up chat with Barbara Lenhard in Weimar in Germany. When we can fly again, I’m coming to visit 💙

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, 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, extended but relaxed on 1 February, and relaxed back to Level 1 on 1 March 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.
