I didn’t really get anything done on the weekend. I basically spent it all talking with my husband and son. The boy’s second test was negative as well so we got to spend time with him again. Phew.
So on Monday morning I set my alarm for 5.15 in an attempt to do yoga, meditate and write before breakfast.
Well, yoga and meditation happened. So did breakfast.
The boy’s grade is still officially in quarantine so he is having video lessons, plus he was busy preparing a presentation for his English conversation class. About Shakespeare’s English. He gleefully immersed himself in research but had to throw a lot of it out in order to keep within his 15-minute timeframe.
The weather was gorgeous, cold but sunny which made my walk/run rather enjoyable:
I came back home, helped a bit with cooking, took a shower and had lunch:
I only had a very short break before teaching started. I had told everyone to come in person but three students opted for video lessons anyway. It’s a bit weird to switch but I changed the position of the tablet I’m using for video and that made it all easier.
After teaching I had bread and cheese for dinner, talked very briefly with the rest of the family, did all the dishes, pots and pans and got ready for bed.
Nope, no writing, no nothing.
Today there will be the walk to the health food store and some teaching and I’m hoping for a bit of free time in between. I did decide that I won’t teach during fall break, not even a student here and there. This always feels weird because I’m leaving actual money on the table but I really want some time away. If I could I would want to go away for the week and hole up somewhere pretty to write. Since I can’t I will try to do a virtual writing retreat at home. I’m already looking forward to it.
