The day started pretty well, I did my complete morning routine and wrote for half an hour. Called my mother on the phone, did the dishes, got a load of laundry started and folded clean laundry and put it away. I took a picture of the Moorland blanket in progress:
I made Spätzle from scratch and almost burnt my thighs because the wood stove is rather hot especially if you stand in front of it for the time it takes to make noodles.
My husband had opened a bottle of sherry so that the boy could taste some:
Then we looked up sherry on Wikipedia, as one does.
We had made Kässpatz’n and they were extra delicious. This time we actually finished them all:
We had this delectable wine with it, a blanc de noir from that friend of friends. Yummy.
But that was mostly it for the day. I succumbed to brain fog and sloth-ness. I did plan out the upcoming week but the rest of my list stayed unticked. The boy and I watched another mediocre episode of ‚Star Trek: Enterprise‘, then I watched another pretty good episode of ‚Find Yourself‘, sat around twiddling my thumbs for some time, started writing this post right before bedtime, finally got ready and went to bed.
Today the boy will have to go to school in person, I want to go for a run and will teach all the students. One more week until Easter break. I read that there might be another lockdown until April 18 which I am endorsing with all my heart. Yes to lockdown in times of increasing incident rates. I will happily stay at home, not go anywhere and not see anyone, even if I have already done so for more than a year and am sick of it already. Just think about it, what’s more important: you having fun or someone dying? You get it? Right. We’re set then.
