Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 75 of Level 1, 14 May 2021.



Friday 14 May 2021, Day 75 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful that every cloud has a silver lining, no matter how dark the cloud, a day very different to my usually happy go lucky days; for waking up early and getting my work completed early; for a beautiful sky day, with lots of clouds, and the rain clouds rolling in now; for a refreshing walk to Woolies, to buy veggies for a rainy day soup, the soup turning out to be super tasty by adding the left-over Mauritian sausage dish by Michele mmmm; for a second sunset walk through Bakoven, bumping into siblings Mel and Jason, who took over Roots Café and Kitchen a month ago, having written about them earlier this week; and for being healthy and Free. 🙏💙

The Sweet Service Award went to the Western Cape Blood Service, and the Sour Service Award to Sandak-Lewin and Portfolio Manager Greg Anderson, not for the first time!

Henry messaged in ill today. A new cleaner I was to try out for my litter clean ups didn’t arrive this afternoon. Two of the Trustees of our building have agreed to the R1 million maintenance repairs, none of which are urgent! This means a massive Special Levy, which I am unable to pay! Michele Antelme has given me some input to make me feel better already. 🙏

Early to bed tonight with an escapist movie. 🍿

The rain has just started falling, forecast to do so all day tomorrow too. ☔️☔️☔️

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.
