Am sitting here feeling pleased with myself. Despite a slow and uninspired beginning I have managed to fill my day with relatively useful things. I think I am resigned to being more of a human doing than a human being.
So…. after getting up , having breakfast on the doorstep and 3 minutes yoga. Followed by about an hour on twitter ( there is so much happening !) and putting off going shopping I went back to lying on my bed and read for a while.
Today , I told myself ,I was not going to criticise myself . So it was ok to lie about and read.
After 5 minutes I was bored so I put drain cleaner down both sinks where it made a very satisfying exploding hissing noise. Hopefully that will mean the water will now drain away quicker. Thus inspired ….and to my surprise I cleaned the sink with Vim and then the basin . After that it was back to reading again for another 10 minutes.
Next, I finally contacted the client about the latest portraits. Followed by fixing my little plug in things for storing info on and now I can save things again .
I was on a roll now so I daringly looked for a youtube video on publishing a book on amazon more or less for free. Found one and watched all of it.
By now it was lunch time.
Closely followed by watching Nicola sturgeon live. I don’t always do that but I was a little worried about family. I don’t know how she does it. I imagine having janey godley say all the things she can’t might help. I am glad she is keeping an eye on Scotland.
As I had fixed the saving thing there was no reason not to write something. So I did.
Then I heard thunder . Shopping was next on the list. It was lovely to meet an old friend on the way . I am definitely getting fitter now. Much less trudging home and more striding ..
It was only 3.30pm. Sometimes it seems a very long day.
Next my client arrived. Liked the portraits, paid and took them away. That was good. I never feel completely finished until a portrait is gone .
Then it rained and the little cat came in and stayed for a while. I’ve decided to call it ” covid” as it keeps a distance.
Found more David Hockney short films . And was inspired to draw anther view from my doorstep.
And now it is wine time again. Hurray!🍷
