Some argue that a routine can become a rut. I like to know what is expected for the day – Tuesday, groceries, for example. Thursday is my recharge day. I do baking or sewing or quilting or reading on a Thursday, usually a creative pursuit. A sort-of “me” day, a day where nothing has to get done. I can choose to meander or beeline to a task.
We are a one-car household. Our family made the decision a number of years ago, to go from two vehicles to one. My husband carpools to work and we use our feet or public transit to get around town when he has the car. There is normally a set day for when the car is available for my use, hence Tuesday being grocery day. So when the schedule gets changed – thanks carpool – it is a wrench in the workings.
You never really think about the effects of a routine on your energy levels, until the routine changes. I was thrown off my usual routine this week, I lost my Thursday, my recharge day.
The days were flipped around, so Friday was my recharge day instead. It felt a bit funny, but I was happy with my productivity. I pulled out the tote with my batting (the bottom tote, of course) and finally got a tablet cover made. Here are the instructions I used – http://so-sew-easy.com/quilted-tablet-cover-zippered-pocket/
I have been reading Oh She Glows Every Day cookbook by Angela Liddon. It inspired some of my own experimentation with smoothies and smoothie bowls this week.
So far, next week looks normal. We can never tell what is going to come our way though. I’ll do my best to get my Vitamin ‘N’, and all my other vitamins to keep those batteries charged and ready.
