It's another fairly full week which, once again, I'm looking forward to.
Social: it's choir practice tonight as usual. The outdoor workshop has been cancelled as only a few people signed up to attend, so I won't be missing out and there will be an extra online session to make up for it. I'm not sure whether the lack of interest was due to anxiety about mixing in a large group or due to clashes of commitments, so it'll be interesting to see what happens when the in-person practices resume.
I'm hoping to meet J for lunch on Wednesday but it depends on her other commitments, and I have a Zoom meet arranged for one evening with E, P & L when we are hoping to take part in a quiz or do another online escape room.
Online Classes and Talks:
Today: Photography, History in Music
Wednesday: Nutrition Club
Thursday: Indian Cooking
Friday: Journaling, Nutrition Focus
Health and Fitness:
I'm hoping to complete 30 minutes of walking every day, still in 10 minutes slots, and also re-introduce the daily knee strengthening exercises, which I've stupidly let slip and am now paying for! If that goes well, towards the end of the week I'm hoping to re-introduce one of the 20 minute exercise videos.
Home and Garden:
Home: The weekend housework routine is going well and I seem to be more focused with only the two days to fit it all in. I have found that, so far, I am not looking for all the excuses under the sun to avoid getting started! I also have a short list of odd jobs, each one of which can be completed in under ten minutes, so I'm hoping to clear that list this week.
Garden: I think it's just a week of enjoying the space. M will be here on Friday for a bit more planting, give some attention to the two existing climbers, and carry on with the weeding. That list may change because we are forecast rain from Wednesday to Saturday so, depending on conditions on the day, only the new planting may get done.
Food: I'm reviewing my meal plan for June/July. I don't plan for specific days but have a list of suggested meals for each week so it's flexible and suits my needs. I have lots of new recipes I've added to my folder which I still have to try out so some of those have been written into the plan. To start with, this week sees the addition of four new recipes in the meal plan; I don't usually try quite as many new recipes at once but there are no new ingredients so everything should be fine from an allergy point of view. I have to finish off the shopping list and then hit the shops either this afternoon or tomorrow.
End of Lockdown Adventures:
