Even though I didn’t get enough sleep I did all the things yesterday. Until I ran out of steam in the evening.
I did the morning routine, had breakfast, blogged, opened the manuscript and did half an hour of revision, did the dishes, a load of wool things and got on my bike for cardio for half an hour. Picture of me in my bike helmet and very much not stylish clip-on sunglasses:
And this is where I ended up to turn around. The whole ride was through fields and trees and I just turned around when I reached the next town over in that direction:
(Sorry for no alt text today, I’m pressed for time and am hoping the text includes all relevant information.)
When I came back I thought it was early enough to take a shower before lunch and/or get something else done but husband was in complete cooking overwhelm/chaos. We did have a long and heated conversation about whether it is possible to cook a meal like this on your own. He started the beans at 11 and I was gone for about half an hour and when I came home something was burning while he was getting the parsley ready.
The food was delicious, burgers, red beans, roasted potatoes and fried slices of eggplant:
He almost forgot about the potatoes in the oven until he suddenly wandered what he had planned as a starch. Well. The empty salad bowl was meant to hold red beet salad which he didn’t have time to make. I was all fired up after eating and made the salad after lunch. It did take all of ten minutes. Though I know that all those five and ten minute things do add up.
I did have a quick shower before eating, so that was good, and after the meal I went into full on overdrive, made the salad, did the dishes, folded some laundry and hung up all the hand knitted socks and wool things. Ate some chocolate, and played some games and then went on to teaching.
After work my energy totally flagged which was not unexpected. The boy came downstairs and told me he’d go out with friends which he never does. Good for him, and I’m crossing my fingers he won’t catch any viruses.
Then I sat there for hours, first eating, then playing games, looking at social media, doing Chinese, watching some TV and then I was really unwilling to leave my comfy chair and warm blanket. I did turn the heating on early in the evening so at least the house is slowly heating up.
I went to bed way too late and only realized that I had been waiting for the boy to come back home without realizing it. Dumb mistake.
So. Today I woke up at the usual time, fetched my phone and that was it with my morning. Right now I’m waiting for windows guy which is not ideal. He is supposed to come at some point between 11 and 2. I also want to get yogurt and go to the health food store. There is only one grocery store in town that still carries my favorite Greek yogurt and all the others are clearly inferior. I bought a new brand last Thursday and I can barely make myself eat it. Nope, not going to happen.
