I woke up at 5.15 from the alarm but it didn’t do me any good because I hadn’t gotten enough sleep. Which meant nothing happened before breakfast. It would have been better to sleep longer.
Then breakfast and after that I finally used my time properly and wrote 800 words. I had to trick myself into thinking that I was just playing around:
When my husband showed up I knitted a few rows. Did the dishes and went running:
Came back home after 7.2 kilometers with a spectacular 8’45/k average (not kidding, anything under 9 is really good for me; I’m still walking a lot), turned around and hopped on the bike with the trailer to go grocery shopping.
Got everything I needed, put the groceries away, enrolled the boy in a workshop thing in the fall and helped to make lunch:
Very good. Oh, and I googled Persian dishes with lamb and sour cherries, as one does.
Then I fell into a kind of slump and researched train connections to the boy’s fall workshop thing. Did the dishes and started preparing the sour cherries my husband had picked in the morning for jam-making.
Taught one student who brought a friend who turned out to be a former student of mine. Very nice lesson.
Went back to the cherries and pitted them all and cut them in half because this time I’m very determined to not have jam full of cherry pits. I put the cherries and the sugar together and stored them in the basement. I’ll make the jam later today.
My second student of the day canceled because of work and I was spent anyway so I had dinner. My husband and the boy showed up a little later and when the boy had finished eating we looked at the train connections some more and I helped him decide which workshops he was actually interested in. Lots of interesting topics like machine learning and neural networks and WOOP.
I then started writing this post and contemplated the things I had wanted to get done that day like getting the podcast ready and writing at least 1,000 more words. Instead I made a new list for today, did more dishes with the boy’s help and finally took a shower. The day had been so packed that I didn’t have the time earlier.
Guess who went to bed too late yet again?
Today there will be the jam-making, bodyweight training that I forgot about the day before, writing like crazy, getting the podcast ready and some spinning. Also quite a bit of teaching because one of my Friday students rescheduled to tonight. Oh, and a new student (she was already here once and got dizzy in a singing lesson) and the boy will go out tonight with his classmates.
We are a little busy around here at the moment methinks.
