I woke up at 6.15, apparently I had slept through my alarm which was a bit worrying. Later that morning it turned out that my Fitbit stops vibrating for alarms and timers when the battery is too low. So it wasn’t me sleeping through the alarm, it was the alarm not going off.
At least I was still early enough to make breakfast on time. Afterwards I started watching an online lecture that had been sitting there for weeks. So, progress.
We did all the usual morning things, I returned two things that I had ordered, one because I was dumb enough to order the wrong sheet music for a student and the other because it was totally not what I had expected and then I walked to the farmer’s market for asparagus and potatoes.
My husband decided to not make asparagus for lunch after all. Comfort food:
Then I fell into my usual slump after lunch but for once I did manage to do the dishes in time and did my singing warmup before teaching. The yarn I had ordered for the boy’s scarf did arrive:
Then it was student after student after student without a break until dinnertime. The boy and I decided to watch an episode of Star Trek because today is a public holiday, so no school:
That is the same beer I had when I was in London, only this time I bought it right here at home. The best before-date was the end of 2017 but the store where I bought it assured me that it would still be good. And it was.
And then I realized that yesterday’s post never went up. I had an error message at first and then forgot to try and upload it again. I’m using a blogging app which usually makes things much easier. But. It no longer worked. I think the problem is on my host’s side but I’m not sure yet. I had to copy and paste yesterday’s and today’s post and I didn’t get it to upload pictures. Seems there is another task on my to do-list. This is no fun.
So, today there will be a bit of cleaning because we decided to go out tomorrow. I hope cleaning today will make tomorrow less stressful. Also, we will be having dinner guests on Sunday which means I need to do more grocery shopping. The guests only told us which weekend they’d prefer last night. Of course I had already done all the weekly grocery shopping early because of the holiday.
Today will be a day off with maybe spinning in the afternoon, tomorrow will be somewhat crazy with yet more grocery shopping, loads of teaching and then a sprint to the train station for a concert, Saturday will be all slump plus maybe a bunch of teenagers wielding knives in our basement and Sunday will bring more knife-wielding and dinner guests with my husband’s usual cooking extravaganza. Fun!
But first I’ll do a gauge swatch for the scarf. First things first always.
