Operation Oysterhood: 16 September

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

Charlotte happiness – when your love brings home this gorgeous book written by one of your dearest friends.

Level one. “We’ve got good moves!”

Theoretically, I could travel to see my Mom in October. I thought that I would the moment it became possible, but I can’t say that I still feel the same. I would love to see her – yet it does not feel as safe as I would want it to before embarking on such a journey. We did have a lovely chat on the phone yesterday, and for now, it will still have to be enough.

Otherwise, nothing changes for me in level one, apart from not breaking the curfew unconsciously again. I am usually home by midnight anyway.

A morning of admin, and an afternoon of going through the edits of a beautiful manuscript by a Karavan Press author – Dawn Garisch. Much literary joy.

On my way home, I finally made it to Kalk Bay Books. Heartening to see the bookshop operating again. I like the new space very much. I also stopped at HARU to get my dinner.

And now, after the President’s announcement, I am going to have a glass of red wine and do some ironing and go to bed to sleep and dream of travelling – in the Western Cape.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local. Also in level one!

Recovery time.

“Physical distancing remains one of the key strategies to curb this pandemic.”
