Operation Oysterhood: 21 December

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

— @HaggardHawks

After yesterday’s laziness, I was up early today and started work around six a.m., continuing until around two in the afternoon, lockdown- and festive season-style: in bed. Then, it was time for a shower and some food shopping and house cleaning. My love came to dinner and I braaied for us again.

Simply delicious (even if I say so myself).

It seems that the Mountain might prevent me from seeing the spectacular, once-in-a-lifetime planet alignment, but I will be out there hoping anyway …

One of my book reviews was published today: LitNet. And Joanne Hichens’s Death and the After Parties went live on Kindle this evening. Ebooks are not my cup of tea, but I meet readers all the time who prefer to read on their devices. The paper book went into its first reprint before the end of this year and will be reprinted first thing in the new year, so let’s see how the ebook does in the meantime.

First: The Great Conjunction!

“On the night of December 21, the winter solstice, Jupiter and Saturn will appear so closely aligned in our sky that they will look like a double planet. This close approach is called a conjunction. The fact that this event is happening during the winter solstice is pure coincidence, according to NASA.” – CNN

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

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