Which meant I had more time than I thought.
I had turned the lights out at 11.30 the night before, so still not enough sleep. This is getting tiresome, literally. I did wake up at 6.45, wrote morning pages, did yoga, meditated and measured my blood pressure and then stepped in the shower. I managed to be done with all of that by the time my husband showed up for breakfast.
I ate my muesli, crocheted a bit, talked with my husband, decided to knit him a pair of fingerless mittens from the leftover yarn from the other pair, finished the grocery list, did half the breakfast dishes and decided to walk to the supermarket instead of taking the bike because it was extremely windy. I wrote my one lone Christmas card and posted it.
Walked to the supermarket and back. It was extremely crowded but I didn’t have all that many things to get, so that was okay. I did like the walking but only until my feet started protesting vehemently. Sigh.
I came back, unpacked the groceries and then had to wait for a bit before lunch was served:
Since we only had two red bell peppers my husband made the executive decision to stuff them with meat and bulgur and let the boy fend for himself. He got the rest of yesterday’s potato salad with some fake meat.
Which he fried just as I was thinking about having a nice break to myself after lunch.
My first student wanted an online lesson because she was feeling under the weather. The second canceled. The third came on time and was a delight as always. Then I had a break that I used for some foot mobility training. The fourth student didn’t show up and the fifth canceled. At least I got to teach the last student of the day.
I used my longer break to do the dishes and start writing this post. In between my husband told me about a video he had been watching about Verona. Now that sounds like a nice vacation. And it only takes about six hours to reach by train.
Then we got talking about music and specifically the song „Desafinado“ that he has been practicing for a while and so we went to the annex and played the song for a bit. It’s been years that I last sang it, might have been a decade or more. For that it went pretty well. Playing Bossa Nova is what we used to do all the time back in the late nineties. It’s nice to go back to it at times.
Then I did my second round of Duolingo for the day, watched some C-drama while crocheting. Did not succumb to the temptation of eating ice cream or all the cookies but instead had some tea.
Today will be pretty full, I want to change the sheets and clean all the things. Only three students and maybe I’ll watch the next part of the Agatha Christie mystery with my husband. Now that I’ve finished reading the book I’ll probably understand it better.
