I woke up at six, stayed in bed contemplating all kinds of things and then decided to skip yoga. Had breakfast, did some research, finally wrote my blog post and made the list for the day.
When my husband went running I changed the sheets on my bed, did the weekly cleaning, talked with my mother-in-law for a few minutes and almost started working on the podcast. Lunch was a surprising amount of work considering that we had leftover lasagna. My husband picked all the herbs (does one pick herbs?) and salad and made penne with tomato sauce for the boy who had eaten all the vegetarian lasagna the day before:
I did the dishes right away, had a rather short break and then dived head-first into teaching all the students. There were technical problems with one students but when I changed to the laptop and used an ethernet connection instead of the iPad and wifi things went fine. I’m afraid that my router might be near the end of its life already. Anxious me wants to buy a new one right away. Tech-loving, geek me wants to buy one that’s way faster right away. But rational me thinks that things being wonky once in a while is not a good enough reason. I should restart the router later today.
Teaching went reasonably well and all students agreed that video lessons are the way to go for now. Phew. I squeezed some podcast editing in between other things.
The boy and I watched some Enterprise and some Voyager. And then I managed to go to bed almost on time. Win!
Today there will be running and the getting the podcast ready. Also sewing. And more Star Trek with ice cream. Part of me wants to spin for a cowl. I had started to knit it from alpaca that I had around but discovered alpaca makes me itchy and unhappy. So. I just have to pull out all the boxes of spinning fiber and spin 400 meters of 2-ply in the blink of an eye. Never mind all the unfinished spinning projects. I’m still intrigued by an article in Spin-Off where the author claimed that one can easily spin sock yarn in a weekend. The one time in my life when I thought I had managed to produce 100 grams of cabled sock yarn in a weekend the yarn turned out to be much thicker than I had intended.
Anyways, some stash-diving will happen this weekend. Both in the fiber and the yarn stash.
