Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 79 of Level 1, 8 December 2020.



Tuesday 8 December 2020, Day 79 of Level 1, Day 258 of Lockdown 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a rainy start and end to the day, it clearing during the day, a pleasant 21C; for my housekeeper Portia coming to do a thorough Christmas clean of my home with me, long not done 😱, and always loving getting into a freshly-made bed; for Minsky and I grateful for Portia’s company, as Henry was off ill today, Minsky sticking closer to home today and not making any sounds and seeming to need a sleep catch-up after her exciting day yesterday; for receiving the Festive Season operating hours for Pick n Pay and Woolworths in Camps Bay; for a relaxed walk in Camps Bay, the Beachfront area being very quiet; for dancing to Dansdag on Kfm; for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙

For two months I have been contemplating how I would write the review of my many visits to Firefly Café in Camps Bay, it having been inconsistent, but improving in the two months of opening. Today I finally wrote it.

Restaurant Review: Firefly Café in Camps Bay is a unique neighbourhood refreshment station, starting to fly!

There have been lovely clouds to photograph today. I visited Law Enforcement Officer Ivor Ramsay today, he having been on leave for the last two weeks. Outside his office I found a beautiful white paper heart, which I brought home with me, for my KitKat love ❤️😻.

PS: Portia would be grateful for any char jobs. Please contact me for her details.

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, and lowered to Level 1 from 21 September, 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.
