Yesterday was not as productive as I would have liked. I skipped the GP office stuff because I realized I can do that next week as well and that means if I have a reaction to the flu shot I will actually have the time to rest.
I spent yesterday evening sitting around in the kitchen and every time I thought, „Okay, let me just …“ start the dishes, do Chinese, grab my crochet project and go to the living room to watch something some family member or other would come into the kitchen and want to talk. And then my starting impulse would be gone. The only thing I did get done were the dishes because the boy showed up saying, „I’m eating dinner now and I’d like to take a shower after.“ So I did the dishes right away, then forgot to tell him I was done so he waited for 45 minutes. Oops. And when I had the dishes and pots all washed sitting there waiting to be dried my husband showed up saying, „That is a lot of dishes!“ Yeah, no kidding! That’s what happens if someone makes spaghetti with tomato sauce (from home-canned tomatoes from our garden), saltimbocca alla romana and then go and do some more cooking in the evening.
So I went to bed at midnight. Great!
Woke up at 6.30, read for a bit but still managed my full morning routine before my husband had breakfast. Yeah!
Right now I’m waiting for the firewood delivery to come, then we’ll stack as much wood as we can as fast as we can. My husband has been busy shifting stuff around so that there will actually be a place to stack the firewood because right now all the firewood storage is full of maple that need to dry for another year or two.
So the plan for today is: stack firewood until we run out of time, then leave the rest until tomorrow or so. Not that anyone will have time tomorrow, apart from the boy who got both covid and flu shot yesterday and is a bit handicapped at the moment. Then eat lunch as early as possible and take a much needed shower.
Teaching will start early and end early and while I thought I would have a break in between students I won’t because I forgot about the two new students who are starting regular lessons today. At least their sheet music should be in the letterbox right now.
I am very determined to not waste another evening so I’m hoping to open the manuscript, do the dishes in a timely manner, do Chinese early, watch some C-drama and go to bed on time. Wish me luck!
