Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 65 of Level 1, 4 December 2021



Saturday 4 December 2021, Day 65 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a day of catching up on sleep and work for my clients; for the weather encouraging me to stay at home, it being grey and gusting like crazy, with rain to come; for a walk to Woolies and Pick n Pay, managing to not get blown away; for the NSRI coming to assist two paddlers at Bakoven, in trouble die to the strong wind; for whales being spotted in Camps Bay; for our Loadshedding being this evening, meaning an early night 😴; for my German tourist clients on their way back home; for danceable music on Kfm’s Blokparty 🎶, and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙

For the past four days technicians have been hammering and drilling in installing a new air-conditioner in the next door apartment 101 belonging to Rhode Snyman. But the noise today was just too much, almost all day, when I was trying to catch up on me, needing peace! 😡

PS Perfect colourful short end to the day with a double rainbow 🌈🌈
