That went well.

Yesterday morning I took my laptop upstairs and set a 30-minute timer and wrote as much as I could. I managed

(the blog words not being written in that 30 minutes, of course)

which was a lovely surprise! I’m going to do it again this morning, and I expect similar results.

I didn’t write any more in the evening, though. I concentrated on reading about how to cook brown rice and how to make homemade salsa (that’s not going to happen anytime soon).

I took two large salads to work yesterday because two nights ago I cut up the last of the romaine lettuce hearts (?) I bought the weekend before. I didn’t want them to go bad, and I figured if I had salad cut up, I’d eat it. About 10:30 I was very hungry, so I ate an early lunch. And then at 4:30, I ate another late lunch. I love eating, so this is working out okay, except I’m done with beans for a few days. Nothing wrong with them, I’m just getting sick of them (that didn’t take long).

Have a lovely day!

Morning, Week 33

Last week was super productive! Just not in the words department.

Yesterday at Costco and Whole Foods was fun! I will likely never shop at Whole Foods again unless I need something specific or unusual. But Costco was a win. Desk fan, scale, paper towel dispenser, and some food I love but don’t usually buy in bulk. Nom.

The week, while productive, was not wordy. I was focused on food, oddly enough, and I washed dishes nearly every night and cooked for the family more than usual. Then in the evenings when I usually write, I was focused on food videos (damn you, YouTube, for being so helpful!) and research.
