I slept in until 6.30 and that resulted in a) getting enough sleep (yay!) and b) no yoga, no meditation. I had breakfast and went online for a bit but was too late to work on the novel before my husband showed up.
Since it was going to be rather hot my husband made sure to get his run in a little earlier than usual. I started cleaning full speed and for once I actually did all the tasks on my weekly cleaning list, changed the sheets and mopped the kitchen and bathroom floors. Which made me very happy. Only then did I wash the breakfast dishes and got finished just in time for my husband to make lunch:
Brazil inspired rice and black beans and a salad with hearts of palm. More dishes, a short break and then it was time to get ready to leave the house. I took a shower, no deodorant or lotion allowed, and went off to board the train to Dachau. With my mask and my ticket. I was rather happy that I had made a screenshot of the directions because I couldn’t connect to anything while there.
Mammography was uneventful. I don’t envy the technicians who have to work in such close contact with people all day. The whole thing took less than ten minutes. I just missed the next train back but only had to wait for nine minutes or so, so that was good. Got back home with no problems, went by the health food store and then finally took off my mask.
At some point in the day we inspected the new salad spinner again and decided to return it, there is a crack in the lid in a place that will be under a lot of stress when in use. We’ll get a replacement soon, I hope that one will be okay. I also ordered new pajama pants for my husband and bought myself the ebook „The Big Bluff“ after listening to a podcast interview with the author while cleaning. I started reading it already (I’m on page 50) and am finding it fascinating.
When I had returned home my husband was already in the kitchen taking care of dinner:
Spaghetti aglio olio. He says that’s not cooking, by the way.
The boy and I watched another slightly ridiculous episode of Enterprise, we talked a little about language and the difference between ‚noodle‘ and ‚Nudel‘ as one does while doing more dishes, I started writing this post, declared the list for the day as too aspirational, planned for today and went to bed after reading a bit more.
So. Today there will be the running, Leberkäs for lunch, maybe bodyweight training, some yoga, preparing the next podcast episode, homework for my publishing class and some crafting. The boy and I will start to watch ‚Bladerunner 2049‘, I think. Yeah, I think that’s enough for a day.
Dürft ihr bei Euch kein Deo nutzen, wenn ihr eine Mammographie habt? Das habe ich die letzten 18 Jahre anders gemacht und es hat sich auch niemand beschwert. Ohne Deo wäre für die RöntgenassistenInnen auch unangenehm….
Nein, kein Deo und keine Creme. Es hieß, das könnte Schatten auf der Aufnahme verursachen. Ich stelle mir das für die RöntgenassistentInnen auch schwierig vor, war aber positiv überrascht, dass ich selber zumindest nicht gerochen habe.
