I sit here in front of the computer, absolutely shocked that I had accomplished everything on my to do list for today, with the exception of watching a movie, which is my plan to do next.
Yesterday was a pretty quiet day where I focused on relaxing and figuring out what I really need/want to do around the apartment. That and I have done a lot of thinking about a question that seems to have stuck in my mind since I read it on an 'happiness' blog over the weekend. The question was something along the lines of, describe in detail, what you would love to be doing every day to earn a living while living. I don't know why, but this has really stuck in my mind and hasn't really let me think on anything else. I enjoyed the relaxing and the peacefulness of the day. Enjoying hot green tea with lemon and the dream incense I decided to burn. I ended up napping and dreaming peaceful dreams. Overall it was a good day, I woke in time to make dinner, watch some tv and fall asleep relatively early. Actually falling asleep before I wrote in the blog as I had planned. Oops. I guess the rest was needed and more important to my body.
Today, I woke rested and just feeling productive. I started in on a number of items I realized that I needed to get done, and I just went through it all. The only step backwards today was I destroyed my local web installation. I decided to uninstall it and reinstall it later. I created a new exercise routine that I will be starting in the morning as an update to my morning ritual of meds, coffee, email and breakfast.
I'm looking forwards to baking some dinner tonight, and packaging up the left overs in my food storage containers and freeze them for later. I know I will have extra, for I decided to cook for a family instead of just for me. I'm hoping to get into this routine now, and do this several times a month so I have good healthy inexpensive home made frozen dinners for quick food through out the month. Tonight - Buffalo breaded chicken tenders with chicken rice. Hopefully it turns out as good as I hope it will. I will be making enough for at least 4 meals, maybe 5 depending on how things bake up.
My plans for tonight are to watch a Netflix movie so I can return it and not get charged the new ridiculous rates they created for getting a DVD instead of just watching everything online. After that, if I have the energy I will be looking into how to create new catalogs and moving my photos to them in Lightroom. Hopefully this will help speed up Lightroom, and help me organize the photos, helping me get prepared for my portfolio edits. Tomorrow, more photo work, and reinstalling my local web.
As I write this, I find I am still thinking on what I would love to be doing every day for a living, and the more I think on it, it is changing little by little and making it more 'practical' for me in my health. The biggest thing for me to think about with getting more details about it, is how can I make it come to life! I'm sure I'll describe it more on this site as I figure more out about it.
Healthwise: Yesterday and today breathing has been good. I've not done a lot physically, but I have accomplished a lot. Overall, besides resting more than I normally would like to, I have to save health was ok. The downsides were caused by my feet swelling more than usual again, and a bit more morning congestion than I've had in a while, but nothing that isn't easily handled.
