Actually, a great day! I slept really well last night. Got up at a reasonable hour and headed straight out, armed with a list, and ran errands. First stop was a takeaway coffee and I bumped into a cousin of mine that I have been really crap at catching up with since she moved back to Perth. Had a good chat - she keeps up with my TPP via Facebook and sheepishly confessed her thoughts on Twilight having seen commentary on my photos over there. The world is a funny place. She's giving birth in 2 weeks and invited me to the Bris (circumcision).
I picked up my fabulous shoes that I ordered in last weekend to cheer me up (purple and tarnished gold, with ribbons, there will be a photo). Lovely experience - the sales assisant was so helpful last weekend and called me yesterday to say they were in and then remembered me as I walked in the shop. Those shoes are gonna be fun and happy to wear, I reckon.
I did mess up one errand - took in my paperwork to deposit a cheque I am having trouble banking only to realise I forgot the cheque. Doh! However, I also did a massive food shop - I haven't done one in quite a while and the cupboard was quite bare. Did the lot - staples, spices, meal plan for this coming week and catering for Swancon things.
Came home. Did taxes, sorted receipts, did laundry, cleaned kitchen and tidied hallway.
Still doing taxes, and editing, and baking. But I realised, actually? I am happy today. Heh! And maybe being productive, and getting things done contributes to my sense of well being. That's something to remember, I think.
Also, I have a theory about food and eating. I'm not a particularly interested in food eater (I like ice cream and chocolate and sweets - that's my downfall). So cooking for myself, I can fall into food ruts. Eating the same thing over and over and usually just the main item - so lasagne, or a pasta or a stir fry - but no anything else - salad, or whatever. And geez how would that not get depressing? So I've been experimenting with adding contrasting flavours and colours - so adding pickles, or a marinated something on the side or a condiment or throwing chopped chillis into pasta. Just something the add an element of "different" to my palate and thus to life. Tonight I am having antipasto for dinner with kiwi juice. Colours and flavours! Yay!
