I woke up super-early and spent the first two hours of the day or so online checking the news. This is not recommended. So no writing, no meditation, no morning pages and then I forgot my thyroid pill which meant a late breakfast.
The boy came downstairs for the daily meeting almost on time again. There really wasn’t anything to discuss but if there had been we would have been ready.I read and I knitted and there was a lot of talking.
I also went out to the health food store and because I didn’t get what we needed I went to the butcher and the bakery and a nearby supermarket as well. There were very few people around, everybody kept the distance and some shelves were still rather empty. There is still no yeast to be had in any form. Or canned tomatoes and such.
My mother-in-law was feeling better already, well enough to go to her scheduled eye appointment.
Then I helped to make lunch. Mostly leftovers but also chicken. And papadums:
Then I took a little break, did the dishes and started teaching through my iPad.Things went well, I taught all my regular students. There are of course major drawbacks to this but it’s the only way to have music lessons while keeping the right distance and therefore I love it. We are still figuring out what is possible. And today both my husband and I had to learn how to share documents with the students (and vice versa).
It is rather exciting but also pretty draining.
I had lofty plans of doing strength training afterwards but instead I ate some bread and cheese for dinner and watched a webinar about moving live events to livestreams by Patreon. It was aimed at musicians and so those ‚tools and tricks‘ they were talking about were pretty relevant for me. Even though I probably won’t do live events on my Patreon. But then maybe I should.
By the end of the webinar I felt myself nodding off so I just started writing this blog post, brushed my teeth and went to bed. I moved the journaling to this morning.
Today there will be running and pickup at the tea shop and then more teaching. I might teach my first ever singing lesson online. I didn’t have the time to record backing tracks or warm-up exercises but the whole thing doesn’t have to be perfect right away. I see more research heading my way later today. And this will be a very long day.
