Dec 312017

So I actually slept longer than usual today, my husband got up early and did not build a fire in the wood stove and all of that results in a slightly later daily blog post (shrugs shoulders).

I am still trying to wrap my head around 2017 as a whole, and failing. I’m also still not writing, no idea why. I am completely low on energy all day so that might have something to do with it.

I am contemplating all kinds of things like restricting social media (I have the suspicion that my feeling of „It’s all too much!“ stems from consuming too much social media at least in part.), or not eating sugar and drinking alcohol until my weight is back down where I want it to be, or like doing loads of challenges.

I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions but I am doing goals this year and I might write my goals down and put them on the side of the fridge even. We’ll see.

Yesterday was spectacularly unproductive but I’m completely okay with that. No idea if I will write any words today or not. I am still thinking about how to develop a daily writing habit, though. Not for the blog which is going rather well at the moment but for fiction. I have been thinking about the fact that I spend some time every morning writing several hundred words for the blog, and have also been thinking that I might use that time and energy for fiction but right now the solution of just spending less time online reading stuff and more time offline writing stuff seems more attractive.

Today will be mostly a normal Sunday, there will be leftovers for lunch because we have a ton of them, and we are planning to make cheese fondue tonight (not a normal Sunday activity). We will all do our thing during the day, and in the evening we have planned to watch some „Star Trek“ together, and maybe some concert videos (we started recording conerts this morning at 6; there is „Pop around the Clock“ on TV again, and the ones that really interest us are all on in the early morning), and of course „Dinner for One“.

There might be champagne in the fridge. I might decide to go to bed before midnight even. I remember that last year the whole thing stopped being fun somewhere between 10 and 11, as it always does. But the boy told me I’m not allowed. We’ll see.

I ran out of yarn on the crochet blanket which means I will be ordering tons of yarn today. And I almost bought a book even though I have new rules in place. (I’m trying the “buying way less books“-challenge yet again.) But then I found that the book is available in a German translation as an ebook at my library so I’ll be reading that in German for a change.

I don’t think I will be able to think everything through that I want to in one day so I’m giving myself another week or so for that.

2017 on the whole was a rather full and interesting year, that much is clear.
