After my week of speed mural painting, walks uptown carrying my heavy painting stuff and climbing up and down my ladder, today was to be a day off.
And it was.
My stove started first time. It was rainy and windy outside and no need to go out.
I made myself “facon and eggs ” for breakfast. Someone gave me a large piece of prosciutto di parma so am experimenting with it. I think I need to slice it thinner ,but it’s very nice. I think it would help if I had a non stick pan as I don’t use any oil and the eggs stick a bit. I haven’t used any oil as I thought the fat in the facon would be enough.
After getting bored with the science programme on radio 5 I thought I might as well go and read upstairs. I am half way through a medium interesting book on my kindle. It has an awful lot of characters who I get a bit mixed up with.
Along with a few of ” the positano diaries” the morning passed very pleasantly. I’ve decided that I don’t need to go to Positano as it feels as if I have already been there.
After lunch I had a long conversation with my sister where we discussed all sorts of things and decided that next time we might do a video call.
I ate 5 chocolates over the course of the day as someone gave me them yesterday when I was painting. Obviously chocolate someone else gives you doesn’t make you fat and it would be rude not to eat it. ( some kind people brought chocolates or cakes almost every day for the painters. )
I am looking forward to spending another day finishing off the mural. I need to fix my fox’s leg and put highlights in its eyes. And there is a long low wall to finish.
I never used to be able to relax so today has been quite successful.
I did walk to the end of the street and take a photo , then did 5 salutes to the sun. I have 334 steps on my phone. I have reached 6000 once since I started.
Today there were only 31 new cases of the virus in Basilicata.
Tomorrow I have plans to paint dogs.
For now it’s wine and something entertaining from YouTube.
