I had a lovely weekend, more or less. There was one last visit to the old house to do some cleaning. That set off my asthma in a major way, and I went to bed with lungs that whistled like I'd swallowed a squeaky dog toy every time I breathed. That was fun. Galahad was weirded out, and so I didn't get many cuddles last night.
Speaking of Galahad, he's lying behind my computer as I type this, sleeping. I love that he's near me when I'm home. It makes me happy to have him close. I hate being away from home. What I need is a work cat.
Sunday was spent doing chores and then I had a lovely couple of games of Exploding Kittens and learnt how to play Cribbage. Thanks to T, who took some time out of her afternoon to come over for a masked I'm threatening to start a Canasta evening. I loved playing Canasta back in the day, and having a monthly gathering to shoot the breeze and play cards with folks I like to spend time with seems like fun to me.
Life is still chugging along. The routine has been good for me, and so I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my iPad. In the meantime, I'm taking advantage of the non-writing to daydream. It's the best way to solidify stories, for me personally, and there's been a lot of time for that during my commute to and from work, and in the evenings when I'm not meal-prepping or preparing a blog post for the following day.
Update: Galahad is gently snoring, and I can't stop giggling.
That's where I am right now. I'm still not loving the long hours at work, but I'm happy to be working - a regular paycheque and the routine have done wonders for my mental health. Soon enough I'll also be writing, and that makes me extremely happy. When I can finally figure out a way to add lifting, running and martial arts back into the mix, I'll be golden. I think, if the plague is finally beaten back, I'll be able to add martial arts back before anything else. Lifting and running will have to take a back seat as I try to juggle everything else. I'm hoping I'll be able to squeeze them in as well, but I'm not seeing a way how, as of yet.
But that's a problem for future me. Current me just needs to worry about getting writing again and saving up for a new Mac, because hoy boy is this one crumbling. Oh! And getting my learner's license. I really should get on that.
Right, that's all the catch-up news from the weekend I have. I have another blog post to write and schedule, and then I think I'll retire to bed with a cup of tea for some pre-sleep kitten cuddles.
