Operation Oysterhood: 29 December

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

Salieri wasn’t well again this morning and vomited for the first time in weeks. I think she is better now, and has eaten well since the early incident, but just in case I made an appointment with the vet for tomorrow afternoon. I will see how she is in the morning to judge whether to take her in (always very traumatic), or allow her to be. I stayed longer in bed today just to let her sleep in loving company in the morning and the afternoon. In between, my love and I went for another walk around the Common and then I did some garden work and had a delicious lunch with my lovely friend and her delightful godson. In the afternoon, I actually returned to editing. And it felt great. I needed a rest, but I also need to complete this work.

I started reading the latest Benny Griessel today and am really enjoying it, a proper page-turner. Great stuff.

Quarantines are back. I will comply if exposed to COVID-19 again, but I wish we just vaccinated everyone and moved on. I read today that a Dutch anti-vaxxer who opposed lockdowns and mask-wearing died of COVID-19 at the age of 53. If this is the kind of freedom people are prepared to die for, they really can’t be helped, but I am so sorry for the family and friends who loved him and now have to deal with the pointless loss.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local. Get vaccinated, please. Live.

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