Saturday 17 April 2021, Day 48 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for another summer day forecast at 24C which became a 28C one; for a very relaxed day, starting off with a tea and croissant treat with Vivian Warby at Firefly, being addressed by Daniella Kisten of Minted Ginger, supplier of Chef uniforms and aprons from a neighbouring table, leading to an interesting restaurant catch-up, promising each other a tea date; for a beautiful turquoise blue ocean today, very calm and almost flat; for hearing the ‘Love my Life’ song by Robbie Williams for the first time, with amazing words, a song of self-affirmation, including ‘I am Free’, something I’ve never expressed gratitude for before, #thankyou Linda Gotlieb 🌹; for being able to see The Funeral of Prince Philip at 4 pm our time, finding it by chance via a German TV channel, so moving, despite its small size, with its ending of William, Harry, and Kate walking together in leaving the Chapel ❤️; for a power walk up the 100 Houghton Steps, gaining 300 points, bringing me closer to my goal of points to achieve by the end of this month; for the amazing surprise of there being almost no litter, having come armed with a garbage bag; for my Bakoven sunset pic of earlier this week being posted by Daily Maverick today (Photograph above); and for being happy, healthy, and free. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a cool 19C day; for a busy working and writing day; for an energetic walk through Bakoven and up all the lanes and steps up to Camps Bay Drive, getting a good cardio workout and 300 Discovery points, a walk I loved doing with Imtiaz; for not having DSTV to see the Harry/Meghan broadcast, having heard the essence of it on all the news broadcasts on FaceBook during the day; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

#Gratitude for another beautiful sunny day, the wind picking up this afternoon but not too badly; for an industrious working morning and afternoon; for the luck of having adopted a Kitten, which I’ll fetch later this week, thanks to Johnny Nortje for sending me a link to the adoption agency 😻😻😻; for an energetic Camps Bay cardio walk uphill, including the dreaded Houghton Steps, worth it for the 300 point reward; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a very relaxed day; for it being sunny, but a very windy day, so I walked with Carmen from my cleaning team up to First Beach Clifton, picking up litter from Glen Beach onwards, being more wind-protected in Clifton; for a quick pop in at Pick n Pay to get my Daily Maverick 368, with hardly any customers 👏; for a spoil croissant at Firefly Café, loving that Manager Jason came to sit down at my table to chat, not having seen each other in a month 💙; for Vit D therapy on my terrace this afternoon; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
