calypte 17th March

Happy St Patrick’s Day ๐Ÿ™‚

Running late today (although not as late as the post implies – silly thing stuck as draft!). Had a lousy night’s sleep, for no particular reason I can put my finger on, so after being awake for ages around the half five mark (thankfully all the negative doom-saying brain chatter disappeared like clammy mist with daylight!) I ended up shoving earplugs in and sleeping ’til almost 10am! Oops! o_O

Having company yesterday really cheered me up, so glad I’m heading out again this evening and tomorrow. It also makes it easier to face heading back to work – figure I’m (and they’re!) just going to have to accept that I’m not running on full steam for a while. But, might as well do what I can for the time between the surgeries, and hopefully after my next absence I will be ‘fixed’!

In the meantime, enjoying the Joy Diet-inspired ‘chasing my yearnings’, at least at little. Trying to get myself out of the habit of putting everything off, always – at least, the fun but often dismissed as ‘pointless’ stuff. This morning I woke with an urge to do an UrsulaV-style ‘journal’ page with the wacom, followed by an “oooh… aren’t inks great to paint with?!”. Figure this is because I missed the creativity ‘daily’ yesterday (and, to be frank, for about a week or more!?). Not entirely sure I’ll make time for those today, given my cinema plans and late start, but I am at least acknowledging ๐Ÿ™‚

Another kind of creativity is cooking, and today I am chasing a random ‘might like to try that’ by drying my own raisins! Based on reading this, it’s hugely cost-inefficient, but I had a half-bunch of grapes that were a bit past their prime, the oven being on all afternoon can be in lieu of the heating, and figured why not? Will report back on the results ๐Ÿ™‚

  • meditation / morning pages / neck exercises / stretches / more meditation
  • make raisins
  • send books-in-danger list to J – easier to send them off to ‘good homes’, like puppies ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • little bit o’coding
  • emails x2
  • cinema
  • read
  • try for an earlier night, despite lieย in

  1. Glad you’re catching up on your sleep and have nice plans! what are you going to see at the cinema?

  2. Oh my gosh, do-it-yourself raisin making is something that never occurred to me. That might be a very satisfying endeavor!
