No, I’m not talking about a novella from me or anything else I have (not) written.
Like I said in my last post, I’m almost done tying up some loose ends that will permanently make room in my mind and life to focus on happier things like writing again in January 2021.
I can’t wait until this weird year is over.
I’m talking about the rumblings of the next lock down. Basically a Christmas lock down.
It’s as obvious as the snow falling outside my window right now that we are headed towards another “real” lock down circa March 2020 when only essential establishments were open.
If the powers that be had only used common sense (which is obviously not so common), we could have been better positioned by now…
Nothing will change much for me when we shut down again.
My family’s “reserves” from early pandemic have remained untouched – freezers and shelves are full, medicine cabinets refreshed with everything needed to combat whatever is thrown our way and my pharmacy knows to deliver our prescriptions for two months worth at a time.
The only thing left for me to do is buy what we need to prepare for Christmas week meals – pepperpot, garlic pork and other traditional eats. that we always indulge and look forward to.
The question is – how are YOU doing?
Update: Minutes after I posted this, the hammer dropped – as of December 17 we are shutting down. Let the toilet paper games begin! 🙄
