Yesterday I cleaned the bathroom and upstairs rooms after dinner. I don’t like to do housework but it has to be done since I still don’t own gnomes to do it for me. I’m too much of a perfectionist to hire a cleaning lady so I’ll do it myself but sometimes it’s a lot besides working 36 hours a week, working out and a social life. So I wondered last night: when do you do your housework if you have a job or children who are still at home?
Tomorrow is girl’s night out. After work K. and I are going to an Italian restaurant for some pasta and after that we are going to the movies. We’re going to see “Remember me” with Robert Pattinson and Pierce Brosnan. I’m really looking forward to this.
Today after work I went out for a run and it was a bad run, I had to walk several times. Reasons?
First of all it was very warm, temperature was 22 ˚C (71 degrees). This is a temperature we have on a normal Summer day in July or August and a difference of 14 ˚C (57 degrees) compared to my Sunday run. I’m not used to these temperatures yet, the difference is too big at once. Second, I was overdressed because I didn’t expect it would be so warm. Third my right leg hurt during my run. Fourth since I haven’t been running much lately straight from work I’ll have to get used to that again, but I will.
So this wasn’t a good run but that’s okay, there will always be good and bad runs. My next run might be good again or maybe a bad one again but then the next will be good.
Weather: 22 ˚C/71 degrees, cloudy, humid, not much wind.
Distance: 3.8K / 2.3 miles
Average time: 7:20 /km
Average speed: 8.2 km/hour
Goal total km’s/miles week 14:
22K / 14.2 miles.
So far week 14: 12.8K / 7.9 miles
Pic of the day:
I’m adding something new to my blog: pic of the day. Every day I will take a picture from my daily life, or something I see or do. Now all I have to do is remind myself to take a picture everyday. I intend to forget that sometimes.
Tuesday: bleh, bathroom cleaning.
Wednesday: precious jewels. I don’t wear much gold jewels but today it happened to be that it matched my outfit. These jewels are precious to me because they were all given to me by the most important persons in my life. I got the watch for my 18th birthday from my Granny. The necklace and the closed bracelet were a gift from my parents. R. gave me the earrings.
The charm bracelet I also got from my Gran with a bracelet on it with my initials and birth date on it. When my Dad was diagnosed with cancer he wanted to give me something to remember him, I could choose anything. But I choose a “simple” bracelet which says “your Dad” and with his birth day on it. After that I got one from my Mom and from R. These 4 people are the most important people in my life even though Dad and Granny aren’t among us anymore. So all these jewels are precious to me.
What’s for dinner:
Yesterday simple: pork meat, potatoes and green beans.
Today a rice recipe. Before preparing:
Ready to eat:
A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
