Didn’t fall asleep until closer to 08:00…have no idea why, just tossed & turned all night. Then I woke up by some lovely workers who were tidying up the cemetery after the storm we had a few days ago. Nothing like the sound of a wood chipper to bring out your inner fury… I don’t mind a few hours of sleep, it’s the way I get woken up that makes all the difference.
Couldn’t go back to sleep, so I organised my planner most of the day. Ridiculous, since I have next to no social - or work life. But still, making lists & checking them twice gives me inner peace & it’s incredibly satisfying to plan dinners for a whole month & making a shopping list accordingly. Plus, it also saves money, gas & most important - time…which should be on top of everyones priority list. The only day I usually keep open is Saturdays. That day’s for movies, junk food & cosying up on the couch in the evenings… Yup, I’m getting oooold. ;p
You sometimes see a woman who would have made a Joan of Arc in another century and climate, threshing herself to pieces over all the mean worry of housekeeping. ~Rudyard Kipling.
