Operation Oysterhood: 10 September

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

My love and I walked on the Rondebosch Common this morning. The flowers were huddling in the wind, but they are still out there – very beautiful. Apart from the walk, the day was chaos. Everything and nothing got done. Most of it was good, but I felt frazzled by the late afternoon and there was no time to go shopping or cook dinner, so: HARU to the rescue!

After dinner, my love and I watched our series and had a few really good laughs.

Driving back home this evening, I listened to people discuss their vaccine hesitancy on the radio with a host who tried to stay non-judgmental. And I remembered the news of Denmark opening up today – fully. No more lockdown, any restrictions, no state of disaster. More than 80% of their population above twelve are vaccinated and now the entire country is returning to personal and professional business as usual. We could also have this – it is attainable – and yet, so many believe that horse dewormers might be a better solution …

I wonder whether they need any more writers or publishers in Denmark …?

I am in bed, surrounded by cats, and watching the Auger-Aliassime / Medvedev SF at the US Open with one eye while typing. Good match. And seeing Uncle Toni in the audience brings back many good memories. May he bring the young Canadian lots of luck in the future.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
