Woke up at 5.30 and promptly fell asleep again. When he alarm went off I did actually meditate for five minute – rather fidgety – and wrote my morning pages. And then I spent ten minutes staring at the novel, correcting a word or expression here and there and then wondering where I had wanted this scene to go. It will come to me eventually, I guess. If not I’ll make up something else.
Then breakfast. I spent the time before my husband showed up making a new collection on my ebook reader with all the writing books on it. It is a bit ridiculous how much time and energy I spend on organizing my reading. Books get put into the bullet journal and on Goodreads and I order books and write the details down and put them in collections and delete them once I’ve read them. This is something that I only started seeing when I was less online in March.
But then I’m reading so much that a little book management is necessary. I only started cataloging my books when I bought the same book twice for the first time. These days with everything being an ebook that doesn’t usually happen anymore because Amazon warns me that I already bought the book before.
My husband got up and we rejoiced over the result of the EU elections.
Then he decided to skip running in favor of yard work and I went for a walk:
It was wonderful to be moving again. I itched to run but I guess I better wait another week or so. I have reached the point where I often forget the bum leg, though. I take that as a good sign.
Then I went to the tea shop, two different bakeries and the health food store. I came home and helped my husband make lunch and then we realized that with all my shopping I had forgotten to get parmesan. So I went out again to get some more. And gummy bears, as one does.
Lunch was tasty:
We’re still talking about Sunday lunch, though.
Then I sat in the kitchen doing nothing until I was almost late getting ready for teaching. Oops. I might have taught with dripping wet hair yet again. I need a bit more replenishing it seems before I’m back to normal. I’m never quite sure what this ‚normal‘ actually is, I get the feeling things are always off and almost never ‚normal‘.
I taught a handful of students who all felt as limp and unenergetic as I. I think we are all looking forward to Pentecost break.
Then the boy and I did some bodyweight training, a bit grudgingly, and had Brezn for dinner. After which I did the massive washing up and went to bed early.
Today there will be, um, teaching. Maybe a little spinning. Not much more.
