Woke up early again. I’m still practicing that sleeping thing. Scrolled through internet stuff for an hour, then did Day 3 of yoga. I’m really liking this.
Breakfast was had and I spent quite some time reading Beth O’Leary’s „The Swap“. There was a slow bit there after the beginning but two thirds in I’m back to loving it.
It was supposed to rain but then the sun shone and therefore we tried getting out the door for running early. The woods were packed even though you can’t see it in the pictures:
Running went pretty well. I’m slowly (very slowly) getting there.
I did finish a pair of socks in the morning and am finding myself without a proper knitting project. And without yarn that I can just cast on. Unless I want to knit a pair of beige socks. I still have ten skeins of sock yarn that need dyeing. Look, socks:
My husband and I prepared the chicken we got with out eggs this week. We get our eggs delivered from a nearby farm every Tuesday:
The dumplings were made from store-bought dough. One of these days I’ll learn how to make potato dumplings.
After lunch I spent most of the afternoon sitting around and reading. At one point I got up from the kitchen bench and took care of this mess:
This is what happens when you leave the breakfast dishes for later and then prepare all the food. Just when I thought about getting the sewing machine out it was already time for dinner.
We watched an excellent Voyager episode (season 6 finale) and the very first episode of Enterprise. Let’s just say that there is a reason I never re-watched that one. Some aspects are great, like the ship design and the uniforms, others not so much. Captain Archer is just so – American. And very Kirk-like, only thirty years later.
So that was my Saturday. Apart from running I didn’t really get much done, haven’t really started on my big, scary homework-thing that is theoretically due on Monday. Which means I will have to do everything today. Like, preparing and recording a podcast episode, scary homework thing, mask-sewing, cleaning, laundry, yoga, the usual daily chores and helping the boy get part of a paper ready. Right. That will so totally happen.
