I woke up at six after enough sleep for once. Lounged around in bed for ages. Did yoga and meditated. Had breakfast.
The boy had said the day before that he wanted to eat breakfast but in the end I woke him up just in time for lunch. Twice. Before that I did all the dishes and practiced Chinese and went for my walk/run:
Turns out I’m fast when I do 1-minute intervals than when I run for 800 meters and then walk for 400. Because I get fed up with all the running I just stop somewhere around the middle and walk the rest of the way. Odd.
Then my husband made lasagna with a little help from me:
It was delicious and there is more than half left over but today we’ll cook something else.
In the afternoon I did some research about tarps, found out how to sign up for an app that streams Chinese TV and had both my husband and the boy come over to talk to me several times. The boy is working on a logo to submit for his graduation and wanted some help. Apparently, the feedback from my mother-in-law that everything was just wonderful, no need to do more work was not that helpful. Whereas my opinions about spacing, type, shading, how to position the text and how wide to make the metal band on the pencil where maybe a little more specific. I mean, all those classes I bought about book cover design and such must be good for something.
Then the boy and I watched the first episode of season four ‚Star Trek Enterprise‘ and it was actually pretty good. Huh. Then I sat there an binged three episodes of ‚Accidentally in Love‘ before starting to write this post, doing evening yoga, writing in my bullet journal and going to bed too late.
Today there will be the phone call to my mother, reading more of „Marriage and Murder“, making some more pasta from scratch and lesson prep because that didn’t happen before. Also, another episode of ‚Torchwood‘. And getting angry about the news and the covid numbers as usual.Yesterday morning I had a moment where I could convince myself that right now in that moment everything was fine, there was no danger inside these walls and I could just live my life in peace for a bit but then reality crashed down again. Meh.
