Woke up at six again and did yoga and meditation. Got breakfast on the table on time so the boy wouldn’t be late for school and then I wrote actual words in my actual novel-in-progress.
My husband started the wood stove, I crocheted, I did the dishes after his breakfast and did my ten minutes of Mandarin on Duolingo and walked to the health food store.
My husband had made tomato sauce from the tomatoes he had harvested the day before and when I came back home he had peeled the potatoes and started to cook them. And then I made gnocchi from scratch:
The family verdict was that these are a favorite for all of us:
I had to start teaching only fifteen minutes after finishing lunch and then there was one student after the other until seven. I ate dinner and then tackled all the dirty dishes with the help of my husband and the boy.
And then I sat around watching cozy sewing videos on YouTube instead of writing some more of getting ready for bed.
Today there will be running, loads of teaching again and some writing if I’m super-determined.
