Farewell, June! Woah.
Had a super-low energy day yesterday, a ‘lovely’ reminder that all is still far from right. I confess I’m getting anxious about ever feeling well again, or more to the point, having to face life again before I feel much MUCH better Oy. On the plus side, today was 110 days of meditation in a row, and I’ve had a daily practice with only a few blips for must be over 18 months now – and it really helps. I’m able to acknowledge the anxiety, and deal with it a little better.
Anyway. Today is so far feeling much better, and my head is FULL of plans! Mainly cooking and decluttering 🙂 Got a bag of carrots that need used, so thinking maybe a smaller batch of (experimental ginger?) soup, and perhaps a root veg casserole for the freezer (although I’ve already got some in there, hmm!) to add to plans of sweet potato chilli (can I bung a few carrots in that?! ;)) and a lazy take on a roast veg lasagne. I eat well 🙂
On the decluttering, I got my toiletries box more or less sorted – no shocks! – and realised the sagacity of the KonMari advice to group similar items in the same place: I must have body butter in at least 3 different places (and I don’t mean the opened/being used ones!), and shower gel much the same. No wonder I have quite a bit!
I also sent my old, big stereo away for storage at my dad’s. I do ponder keeping stuff like this, but (a) it works fine, and (b) I still have a pile of media that only plays on that, even if I only ever use my iPod these days. Will have a think – at least, it might as well stick around to see if it has a place in the new place 😉 An added bonus of this approach (on top of the main getting the flat ready for photos/sale in a non-intensive manner) will be allowing me to live more minimally for a bit, and see if I can make that stick. Plus, it highlighted a storage space that needs a lot more attention: have I even been in that cabinet in the past year?! Oy So, can pick away at that over the next week or so.
Anyway, tons of possible plans for today, given I’m heading out this evening! Tonight’s cinema choice is Baby Driver, so I’m hoping that’s fun. I was getting annoyed at the trailer, but I didn’t see the group going for Despicable Me when there were options! And tomorrow is full of excitement, as I’m off on a day trip… to Fife! LOL!
