Cheers Given! smile
Cancelled our book club (set to meet tomorrow) when others also became ill with the latest upper respiratory virus that’s going around; I’d have probably gutted it out if it were “only me”—but it’s nice to be able to relax & catch up on sleep now that we’ve re-scheduled it.
I’m wondering now whether this entry really belongs under “be gentle with myself” or should go with “be gentle with others”—maybe both? wry grin
A further repetition today of the old lesson that hard work is not always rewarded (favoritism sucks!). wry grin At least so far, it doesn’t affect this project—“just” other parts of my job…. crossing fingers
Some good “Carpathian Fig with Oranges” preserves (imported from Greece).
Lots of payoff again this week, but also lots of work to sustain everything—& having so many balls in the air at one time is pretty stressful! wry grin
Worked intensively with several colleagues in order to provide respite & support for one of our group who is “going through a bad patch.”
Good work by a(nother) guest presenter. smile
Took a nap before going to meditation (it helped!). smile
Some old favorites [re-watched]: Jurassic Park, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, The English Patient, The Sixth Sense, & Scarface.
Some very good “Carpathian Fig” preserves (imported from Greece).
Great work by a guest presenter. smile
Stopped to help a(nother) stranded motorist.
Bought myself a pretty bouquet of mixed cut flowers (alstromeria, rosebuds, daisies, carnations – & a lovely flower with tall stalks & a sweet smell – as well as some decorative green foliage). smile
My meditation session was, as usual, very worthwhile—a nice bit of quiet time to enjoy! We did two 25-minute sits, with kinhin (walking meditation) in between & a communal reading of sutras (chants) at the end. smile
