I had set my alarm for six but fell asleep again and only woke up half an hour later. I did manage to take my thyroid medication, read the „Daily Stoic“, meditate for five minutes and write morning pages but again thought I could write the next bit of novel a little later. (I don’t know when I will learn that that never works. Not ever.)
Had breakfast, wove the ends of my Comodo cardigan in, talked with my husband and son when they had breakfast and researched stuff on the internet. It is rather interesting how often each day I tend to go down a rabbit hole, finding out about something I’d like to buy or do.
I had started to read the „Ultralearning“ book the day before and that got me thinking (I’m only a few pages in, but still. Oh, and I have yet to finish any of the other non-fiction books I started reading over the past few weeks.) And I read a few articles and blog posts on mental load and that got me thinking.
I had a pretty slow morning because I didn’t have to do grocery shopping. I also thought we would have barbecue for lunch but it turned out that my husband had forgotten all about it and that we didn’t have everything we needed.
Lunch was really yummy and for once we were on time. And the boy showed up both for breakfast and lunch almost on time!
Dishes were done right away and then I read a little before starting to get the podcast ready. That took me most of the afternoon. In between I decided to buy yet another online lecture about writing and watched a video in an „online writing summit“. I’m not that impressed but then I have been doing these kind of things often enough. I signed up to see two instructors specifically and those session are yet to come.
Then I watched the first few session of the lecture I had bought. I found those much more informative but I’m not quite sure they are worth the money. But then I have only started. And I have to remind myself that I used to go to singing and improvisation workshops all the time and most of those were a waste of money but not all.
I got the podcast ready and uploaded but had forgotten to take project pictures before the light became bad. It was a pretty gray day with on and off rain. I’ll have to take those today.
Then it was time again to watch Star Trek, I brushed my teeth beforehand again so skipping dinner gets easier, spun a bit, made pizza dough for today, wrote in my journal and turned out the lights.
Today there will be all the things again, cleaning, pizza-making, writing and all that stuff. Oh, and I’ll publish the podcast.
