Same old, with a covid-twist

It’s hot.

Don’t @ me, I’m allowed to state this fact. We had a 6 month winter and I like it when it’s hot. I’m just sayin’…Also. Air conditioning is nice for sleeping. 🙂

No sparks of joy here while decluttering

After spending a few days in my mom’s clean house, I came back to mine and was overcome with a need to declutter and deep clean. No time like the present! (Ugh. I hate when I say stupid shit like that…)

Of course my return home was not smooth and uneventful. As I said yesterday, the look around the place had me suffer a conniption which catapulted me into action, so at least that. Right? Continue reading “No sparks of joy here while decluttering”

A couple of days ago my boot-camp lady sent an email advising us that she was finally able to secure a permit to hold outdoor classes at nearby parks. 😃

There are a few changes: bring your own yoga mat, maximum 10 people per class, distanced stations to circuit through, etc.

She will sanitize the equipment (weights, rope, balls etc) before, during and after.

It’s exciting…but, I’m hesitating.

Will nature calm disquietude and restlessness?

I waver back and forth between a house in the country (mainly his wish, and my daughter’s) and a small minimalist (aka empty and void of all nonessential clutter) place in/near the city with access to this, that and the other*.

What is the answer? Continue reading “Will nature calm disquietude and restlessness?”
