I woke up at 5.30 from the alarm and promptly fell asleep again. I guess I’m still not sleeping enough.
I rolled out of bed at six full of Monday motivation, tried doing yoga and had to troubleshoot the TV’s wifi connection for fifteen minutes before I could finally do it. I made breakfast. Then I thought the boy had overslept but when I had trekked all two stories up to his room it turned out he was already up and dressed.
Breakfast was had, the boy got ready for school, I read some news and then I read the novel-in-progress for seventeen minutes. Met my husband, we talked, I knitted. I had a slow start to the day and left rather late for running. It was pouring rain. I stepped into a puddle right away and had to run and walk with dripping wet feet:
Visibility was not the best and there weren’t any people out but it was wonderful.
There were several places where the path was all puddle. I changed my route on the way back to avoid some of them.
When I came back home my husband was taking a shower so I just changed into dry pants and socks and then I started making salad and chopping herbs for the sauce:
I was so hungry that I even took seconds.
I didn’t have a lot of time until my first student so I did the dishes, finally took a shower and got ready for teaching. In the end I taught all students online on that first day. It’s interesting that many don’t want to switch back to in-person lessons. After I was done teaching I sent emails, scanned sheet music and called a potential new student.
Then I had dinner even though I had planned to skip it:
My husband showed up and told me about his day, then the boy did the same, we did the dishes while the boy was talking to me some more. Then I spent quite a bit of time looking for the mask I had set out for him for the next day because I couldn’t find the ones I made for him before school break I had pulled out one that I hoped would fit. Well, it didn’t. We looked everywhere for the masks I knew I had but couldn’t find them. I even checked my photos to find proof of how many there should be. I upended my sewing box but all I could find was leftover fabric and some masks that only fit me. And then it hit me: I had shown the masks in my podcast. Which meant I had stuffed them into a basket along with all sorts of other projects. And they were down at the bottom. Phew. There are now enough masks for the boy to wear one per day until the end of the week. And then we can wash them on hot over the weekend.
It was almost time for bed when I sat down to start writing this post, write in my bullet journal and plan for today.
So. Today there will be shopping at the health food store, non-stop teaching for four hours in the afternoon with a mix of online and in-person lessons including a new student who is in kindergarten. That will be interesting.
