I awoke incredibly late today. I couldn’t remember the last time I slept until 10am. I was groggy and it was already snowing. I checked my phone and had a text from Diego. He complained that there was too much snow to come and visit me. I looked outside and saw that there was only a few inches on my car. I also realized that while I had been driving in a few inches of snow since I got my driver’s license, he wasn’t used to it.
I had a long to-do list, a disgusting apartment, and that knitting project to work on. I had to get it done by the 30th. I hadn’t decided if I was going to give it to him in person or mail it. There’s a kind of hiking convention on Saturday and Zak had been asked to be a key speaker at one panel. It was an honor and I wanted to go to support him and give him the knitting. However, it was a 4.5 hour drive each way and I would see my hiking group there. I wasn’t sure if I was ready to see them yet. Or I could finish it and mail it to him. I shouldn’t have waited for so long to do what he had asked me to do in August.
I managed to get a fair amount of the knitting done in between my other chores. I started meditating today and even exercised! I danced. I haven’t danced in a long time and it was clear how much I missed it. That was the original way that I lost my first 20lbs of college weight before I was able to start running. I thought about trying again to follow my eating plan. I actually did today.
When I thought about today in advance, I pictured a calm day as the snow came down with me curled up on the couch, drinking tea, watching TV, and knitting. That wasn’t exactly what happened, but it was a good day. Diego texted me around 8:00 asking about my day. I told him what little there was to tell. He had spent his whole day on his bed watching TV and had even less to say. I went to sleep very satisfied with everything that I accomplished.
Today I gave up my desire to finish my knitting and got many other things done.
Today I’m grateful that I was able to dance again, that I meditated, and that I got farther on my knitting.
