This was the day that I would have needed to get everything done that I didn’t get done all week, well…
I woke up from the alarm, meditated, wrote morning pages and worked on the novel for 25 minutes.
There was breakfast and reading and the boy and my husband had his breakfast in the kitchen again because making tea and muesli turned out to be a logistic nightmare in the annex. (Coffee and bread was easier, apparently.)
We talked a bit, then I did the dishes and we started planning the weekend painting. I started a load of laundry, sorted through the piles in the bedroom and moved them into the living room. I have an embarrassing mountain of mending that fills two trash bags. I did spot a t-shirt that the boy really loved when he was in kindergarten because it was striped like Calvin’s in „Calvin and Hobbes“. Ahem. I will throw that one away soon.
Then I went for a short run since there will be no running on the weekend this week:
The sky was blue, the earth is dry already and it was lovely.
Then I took a shower, put on makeup and moved the two weaving looms to the living room. (Small looms. A rigid heddle and a tablet-weaving loom.)
We went out for lunch this time and met the boy at the Greek restaurant:
Lamb for me and my husband and this is what the boy had:
That Greek is not very veggie-friendly, there is not a single vegetarian main dish on the menu. But you can make up for it with several appetizers.
Then we walked back home, I carried a bag full of old knitting magazines to recycling, wrote emails and almost forgot that I had to start teaching.
I wasn’t late but I had forgotten to hang up the laundry. I asked the boy to do it instead and he was nice enough to do it.
I taught all the Friday students and had a blast. I got to sing and play the piano and play ukulele and sing some more, lots of fun.
The boy and I watched „Star Trek: Into the Darkness“ and I knitted a bit and then I went to bed.
Today there will be all the preparing for painting and hopefully actual painting too. And not much else.
I’m really looking forward to having a nice living space again.
