I slept until 6.30 almost because I had gone to bed so late. Dawdled and had a rather late breakfast. So, no writing and no yoga. I spent a long time talking with my husband about the pandemic and patience. Then I called my mother on the phone and told her that I am worried that she is meeting so many people. Mostly unmasked. I’d say that’s a very bad move for anybody but especially when you’re her age and have pre-existing conditions. I hadn’t said anything for months now but I was getting more and more worried. Not that I can change anything.
We had planned to have leftovers for lunch but since there weren’t enough for all of us my husband made some eggs and baked beans as well, and we ended up with too much food again. Flädlesuppe (pancake soup?) out of bowls because I hadn’t done any dishes all Saturday:
And baked beans, eggs and rice:
The boy had been tasked with drawing yet another birthday card and because he was so pressed for time I helped him find a nice flower picture to copy. I did all the dishes with his help, then wasted some time. I finished reading „Goodbye, things“. I’m not that impressed but then I have read many books about minimalism already so there wasn’t really anything new. Not a bad book either.
My husband and I hung up a load of laundry, we helped my mother-in-law set up her new phone and helped her with various things tech-related and some admin. Then I looked at how my week had gone and didn’t even have time to plan the next one before it was time for dinner.
The boy and I watched an episode of ‚Enterprise‘ that was pretty good, then I watched two more episodes of ‚Love O2O‘, did even more dishes, started writing this post and went to bed slightly too late.
Today there will be the planning of the week, lots of teaching, the arrival of my new iPad, some Chinese practice and hopefully not too much scrolling on my phone.
