Corona Gratitude 🙏
#grateful for a busy working day, from 6h00 onwards, social media posting this morning and finishing a client newsletter this afternoon; for it being rainy every two hours, twice when I needed a walking break, so I had to wait until late afternoon to walk to Pick n Pay, chatting to the nice new Store Manager Domenico, a freezing walk at about 14C, rain not having been forecast for today ; and for being happy, healthy, free and cold 😱 🙏💙
My Blogpost today was a profile of Orangerie Chef Nicolene Barrow of Le Lude in Franschhoek, a 2021 Top 10 Woman Chef.

The Corona Virus Lockdown (Level 5), announced by our President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier to commence on 27 March 2020 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 2021, extended but relaxed on 1 February, and relaxed back to Level 1 on 1 March 2021, moved back to Adjusted Level 2 on 31 May, moved back to level 3 on 16 June, and moved back to Adjusted Level 4 on 28 June, extended by two weeks on 11 July, and returned to Level 3 on 26 July, 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.
