The cold, wet weather has really set in for a few days.
I've used some of my new firestarters already keeping warm. Today I just stayed home. It was a great day for a sleep in, some reading, yoga in front of the fire.
I am half way through my second week off and I am content with myself all day. The last few nights though ... I wake in the early morning with the remnants of disturbing dreams colouring my mood for a little while. All the dreams have had a common thread of work, of frantic running around and deep feelings of anxiety. My days are calm and quiet although I have not yet given myself over to a day of complete nothingness. I feel I have to achieve something. I'm trying to keep a balance between doing and being. I am tired of my sleep being disturbed with that frenetic energy and anxiety though.
I cooked some basil pesto, made a batch of soap too. But then I took myself and my doggies for a long walk into town. I rugged up against the chill and off we set. It was nice, we walked quickly. No point to it but to get out. Oh and to get some exercise. We all liked it.
Tonight I am watching the last season of Dr Who and well, blogging.
The other thing I did today was make spinach and ricotta gnocchi which I enjoyed for my dinner.
