Day 169

I woke up around 6.30 am and figured that was enough sleep. I started the day with some Good Mythical Morning episodes on Youtube. Then quickly moved on to French as the family started their day. I am doing the timed practice runs until next week when I start a new topic.

Once hubby had slipped away to work, I threw off my blanket and got ready to workout. I sound more excited about it than I actually was. In fact, I didn’t want to do it at all. Luckily working out is a habit that I enjoy, so I did it anyway. Wifey joined me and 30 minutes later we had finished another solid workout.

Then it was time to tackle the Doodlewash – September 2019 prompt; 17. Gemstone. I didn’t want to do this topic (this is sounding like the theme of the day) but I found a great ‘how to’ by the team at Tombow. I couldn’t get my brain around the wing detail so I went rogue and made my own wings.

Once I had put the pencils down I started work on the weekly Food Plan and guess what? I didn’t want to do that either. It always seems to take me too long to work out which ingredients can be used for multiple meals. I have included two vegetarian meals.

Beef and Chorizo Casserole : Monday
Healthier One-Pan Chicken Stroganoff : Tuesday
Vegetarian Chilli Beans : Wednesday
Shopping Night / Pizza : Thursday
Peking Noodles : Friday
Chicken Schnitzel + Caesar Salad (burgers) : Saturday
Spinach and Ricotta Zucchini Cannelloni : Sunday

The afternoon was a mix of housework, singing and too many projects floating around my brain.

Since I’ve started blogging I have had four ‘blog award’ nominations and while I’m thrilled that people find my blog inspirational, I’ve felt a little shy about posting the awards. I have started working on the process though. Thank you; Eilidh Horder, Mel @ Decor Craft Design, 3 Sisters Abroad.

One last thing before I sign off, my lovely wifey has started blogging. It will be a collection of random thoughts that will make you laugh, cry and think (or whatever direction she plans on taking it.)

I hope your day has been filled with new beginnings, old friends and big smiles.
