3 random things from inside my head

Thing 1

I hate my hair.

Surprise!

Tell me, you expected this from me, right?

Some observations

Yesterday I had to take a kid to an appointment which was in a converted house. The house, a two story with full basement older home, was turned into a business place. It was decorated and furnished to the type of taste I have and desire…minimalist, clutter-less and bright. Wood trim in places, dark tile, hardwood floors, lots of natural light streaming in from many windows…just lovely.

A ramble about the weekend

I had a relapse last night. And by relapse I mean several things, but especially my neck and spine injury which I managed to aggravate somehow just as I was feeling better. 😟

Intermittent Fasting for health and weight management

Thursday was a day of carbs. The entire week was carby, the worst kind too – white flour and sugar – and I knew that bad feeling would hit me soon.

It did. Thursday night I felt bloated, heavy, ugly, icky, lethargic, itchy, tired and moody. Not to mention my stretchy leggings were feeling snugger than they should.

Challenges during stay-at-home lockdown

Disclaimer: I’m going to describe a family situation that irritated me. I’m only doing this because Toronto’s strict lockdown measures are getting us all beyond frustrated, plus the weather has turned much colder making outdoor activities a little less enjoyable, meaning we spend even more time inside together. I’m just saying, we’re all feeling the strain of being together so much in this small house for so long (10 months and counting). Read with a grain of salt. Don’t pity me, I’m fine. And be nice with your comments. 😉

The look of surrender aka frustration aka acceptance

If you’ve read here a while then you know I like to write fiction. Some of you know I write erotic/romantic fiction. Lately, I’ve been on a roll with a particular story that is now into Chapter 10, and I’m not done.

I write at the dining room table facing the open concept kitchen in front of me. The living room is to the left of me.

The family is not here for the most part – the husband teachers his college students in his basement office, the kids are plugged in to their virtual classrooms in their basement rooms.

I take those moments when they’re schooling to focus and write. All good so far, right?

A little about mask experiences (type of material, hygiene practices)

The mask wearing thing will be with us for a long while, I think.

People around me seem to have generally accepted this fact and are carrying on to the best of their abilities. I mean, most people are sick to death living with so many restrictions so if they’re given a chance to *do* something besides sit in the house, but are forced to wear a mask, they do it.

We do it. Wear the masks, that is.

But I wonder if people are applying proper hygiene practices to their mask wearing habits.

A day in the life of lockdown Toronto 🇨🇦

I went to my mom’s this week and stayed a couple of nights (she’s been part of our bubble since the beginning of covid). Today, she took me to a suburban town to a store which imports some goods from Germany. They also have a deli and a bakery where they make prepared food inhouse. For instance, cabbage rolls. (I bought some). 😛

I was excited to go out. I’ve been sitting in either my mom’s house, or my own, typing, purging, cooking or doing other domestic things.

Meh.

So a trip to a new/different store was exciting! 🙄 For the occasion I even put on actual clothes. Yippie! 😄

Real clothes instead of leggings or yoga wear.
