Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 69 of Level 1, 8 December 2021



Wednesday 8 December 2021, Day 69 of Level 1 😷

My Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a very calm organized working day, getting a website edit completed and posting for each of my clients, without any major disturbances to distract me; for a client newsletter finally finished and sent out; for a Bakoven walk; for excellent Status meetings at newkings boutique hotel and Zest; for a lovely 26C summer day with only a mild breeze; for fabulous service at my laundry, dropping off bed linen; for a late afternoon walk to Camps Bay with a wonderful golden sunset, and some whales jumping in the bay; for all the wonderful years I spent at Melissa’s, Deli Co, and then Peppertree Café 🙏; and for being happy (and a little sad), healthy, and free. 🙏💙

What a sad end to the day in hearing from Viv that Peppertree Café and its owner Bernard Munnik are no more. It was my second home for many years. RIP Bernard. They are doing a Backabuddy collection for the staff. 😱🥲 The restaurant industry is going through another torrid time, 50% of bookings for this month wiped out in some cases 🥲🥲🥲🥲🥲🥲🥲🥲 Gary Peterson

For the first time this year I only received one Discovery Gameboard play, having been slack in the past week in reaching my 7500 step goal due to being so busy 😱😢

I am posting my daily Facebook post to journal this Corona Lockdown Journey, perhaps to serve as material for a future Book.
