Pretty good day at that but still went to bed too late.
I think there are several factors to this, one that I am actually rather busy, two that being tired all the time means everything takes longer, three the waiting for the wood stove situation means I have half an hour less to myself and four I had to disable the screen time function on my phone because somehow it meant my sleep app was not responding either. Even though I made it an exception.
The screen time thing is one example for really simple and often dumb things making disproportionately big ripples through the day.
So. Yesterday I spent most of the day on my mother’s mittens, I knit all morning, finished the thumb after lunch, then taught all the students and after dinner I ripped the thumb out again because something had gone horribly wrong and re-knitted it. Lo and behold, mittens:
They are scratchier than I would have liked but, well, it is what it is. I now know the points where things usually go wrong and why which means the next time should go better.
My husband finally got to eat his lentils, there was dal, veggie rice and spicy eggs for lunch:
After lunch I had a nice little knitting break with a cup of tea, cookies and chocolate:
After finishing the mittens in the evening I finally did the millions of dishes from lunch while talking with the boy and then I almost forgot to do Duolingo. The owl was not amused:
I’m not quite sure what to do about Duolingo, I’m all the way through the Chinese course, the only thing that is teaching me anything new is the writing practice. Now I could do some other language, at one point I started Russian, Latin, Italian, French, Portuguese and Latin but I’m not sure I have the headspace for another language. And I definitely want to continue Chinese, I mean, I have barely started.
I turned the lights out just before midnight. Guess who is very tired today as well. And has another very long, very busy day ahead.
