I know it's stating the obvious, but sometimes I need to remind myself. So far today, I've done pretty well. I did wake up later than I wanted, getting a later start, but I did work out, I had a shower, ate breakfast, and now I'm sitting at my computer with my coffee ready to attempt to restart my writing. Later on, after lunch, I will continue editing.
This weekend was a good one. Friday, the painting supplies I had ordered from Wallack's arrived. The Amazing Flatmate drove me to pic them up, and I spent the afternoon outside in the sun, doing the first of the painting exercises I have on Skillshare and drinking bubbly. It was a great afternoon.
Saturday had me up and in a good mood, largely because of Friday's loveliness. I taught martial arts via Zoom, and while I really do miss the interpersonal interaction, and being able to see my students well and keep track of them, and I do miss my hour and a half classes, it was still good. I'm still helping folks. I'm still useful.
I don't really remember the afternoon well. It clearly wasn't something to note.
Sunday was spectacular. I had breakfast outside in the sun, with a lovely pot of tea. I read all morning outside. I learnt from my last foray into the spring sun, and wore sunscreen. It has been an age since I've sat outside in the sun, reading. It was so nice.
All of this has helped me recenter for this week. Or, today, at least. I was able to haul my lazy arse out of bed, late, but not too late, to workout. I'm feeling tired, but at least I'm not also frustrated with myself.
Right, I'm going to harness this nice feeling and get started on my writing. But first:
