So in the end I got less than six hours of sleep. Woke up at 7.30 from the alarm, did a full morning routine and was in a much better mood. I also was a little more productive than the day before but did lose big chunks of time to being super distractible.
I did not manage to mend anything but did knit a couple of rounds on the sweater-in-progress. I called my mother on the phone and near the end the call just dropped. It turned out that our internet was the culprit. Not sure if it was the provider or something else but I did restart the router and since then everything has been fine.
The boy ate breakfast with us and then went outside to shovel snow. He actually remembered that we had talked about this and I was very grateful. The weather was gorgeous, snow and blue skies. I should have taken a picture but I didn’t.
Lunch was tagliatelle with porcini-tomato sauce and a mixed salad:
Then I ate some chocolate and drank some more herbal tea. No peppermint tea anymore. I also found that the antiseptic lozenges don’t agree with my poor tummy. They contain peppermint oil.
I spent the afternoon mostly playing silly games and reading a chat online but I also cleaned the washbasins and toilets, refilled two fountain pens only to find that the next one I wanted to use was also out of ink, folded a load of laundry and helped start another one, planned the week and finished watching a recorded Zoom call about intuitive writing, and did a lot of dishes.
I ate dinner on time which is an achievement in and of itself, did Duolingo, started writing this post and actually started watching my C-drama around 8. I bought yet another book („A Merry Life“ by Sarah Branson). I met the author online, heard that it had Firefly vibes and that was it.
So a pretty good day I would say. And my voice is getting a little better. Fingers crossed that I’ll be back in singing shape by Thursday. And today it’s back to teaching.
