Phew. Long day and a full one.
I woke up at 5.30 and promptly did not do my morning routine. Instead I went online and then decided to play a game on the iPad. Not the best move.
I made breakfast at 7.30 and then started researching for my upcoming online lessons. I did that on and off all day. My husband showed, the boy got up at 9.30, I did dishes and then I asked my mother-in-law what to bring her from the supermarket.
I walked all the way through a beautiful day, passing the Greek restaurant with one lonely customer in it. The supermarket was much fuller. I held my distance as much as possible and bought quite a few things. I even scored some flour, tomato paste, pasta and toilet paper. On the walk back I was regretting that I hadn’t taken the bike.
When I came back home my husband already had lunch almost ready:
I did the dishes, ate some chocolate and got ready for work. There might have been a bit of a discussion between family members. We’re all feeling the strain. At least the boy sat down and did some of his school work. Finally.
I talked with all the students about online lessons. There was a phone call from a potential new student. The boy helped me test different setups for video teaching. Turns out that my laptop camera is actually the worst I own, both the iPad and my phone have better quality. Guess I’ll switch recording the podcast to the iPad in the future. I also tested the new iPad clamp for my tripod and where to put the device for best camera angle.
Meanwhile my husband was hard at work getting the garden ready and hanging up laundry. Since it was rapidly getting darker and colder my husband headed out again while me and the boy took care of the rest of the laundry.
Afterwards it was time for me to help the boy. He needs a new lightbulb for his room so we went through the whole box in the basement but there was none that fit. And then I got him a hammer and nails, we looked at the sparkling lights set-up in his room and he hung them up.
I ate dinner. And talked with my husband. And started writing this post and did email and then I did the dishes, took off my makeup and got ready for bed.
Today there will be cleaning and teaching and my first video lesson ever. For both piano and ukulele. Afterwards it would be great if we did strength training and then I’d like to watch some Star Trek.
And then the weekend.
