Tired but accomplished…

Today was another office day, cleaning up more work from my interviews and photos I took yesterday. I managed to get four stories done and submitted which has me pretty close to being caught up for the time being. I have one more story that I can start work on, however until I get some … Continue reading Tired but accomplished…

Reflex… DBT Skill

Today is one of those days that I'm feeling like I accomplished nothing, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary. I was up around 9:30, and played some Red Dead Redemption 2 for a bit while Lynn slept. After she got up, I caught up on some dishes, vacuumed, and cleaned up the back yard … Continue reading Reflex… DBT Skill

Taking down time…

Today was a low key day. So low key, in fact, that I unfortunately didn't get a workout in. I ended up doing some research for a project that led me rather deep down the rabbit hole, and I didn't realize the time. That said, despite being a low key kind of day, it was … Continue reading Taking down time…

Bookwork

Today was quiet. I got a workout in, did some reading, and finished the reading for the next unit of my course. Once I get the assignment done I will officially be on the downhill part of the course. I have two assignments and one unit left to do before I tackle the final exam, … Continue reading Bookwork

Content Warning: Unexpected triggers and self-care…

Today was nice and quiet. I was pretty much a home body today. I caught up on some housework, got some playstation time in, and got a workout in. This evening I watched a couple hours of television with Lynn, and have been doing some school work. Overall, I'm feeling good. I'm liking that my … Continue reading Content Warning: Unexpected triggers and self-care…

Finding a steady, but sustainable, pace…

Today was steady, but not overly busy. I was up and out the door early for a 9 a.m. interview. The interview went well and I got lots of information for a story I am researching. Now if only the weather would have cooperated a bit so I could get some decent photos. After the … Continue reading Finding a steady, but sustainable, pace…

Moving Forward

Today was a quiet one. I took the doctors orders to heart and gave myself another day to just let my body rest. It's not like I did nothing though. I finished a book, slept, and played some Red Dead 2. As far as actual productivity I got some files cleaned up on my external … Continue reading Moving Forward

A task completed

Today had a little bit of everything thrown in. Knowing that I had a meeting tonight, I turned my alarms off and slept until 0900, then played some Red Dead Redemption 2 for a bit before walking Taffy, followed by some time in the office, working on some graphic design and photo work. For lunch, … Continue reading A task completed

Downtime

This week has gotten busy. After a fairly quiet day Monday, Tuesday I was in a meeting or writing for most of the day, though I did get the car fixed as well. I now have a functional driver side window again. Yesterday I covered the store for Lynn while she was at the Alliance … Continue reading Downtime

Building positive habits and routines.

I was a home-body today, and I loved every minute of it. I spent some time playing Red Dead 2, cleaned up both of my cameras, and actually dug into the instruction manual on my primary camera to check out some different settings. I've loved the photography, and have already learned a lot, but there … Continue reading Building positive habits and routines.

Photography update

Well, today has not been a great day. I've been dragging ass all day. Tired. Grumpy. It's definitely a good indication that I've been pushing it hard, Maybe too hard. It is what it is though, and Lynn is on her way home, so having her close again will definitely help, and plans are underway … Continue reading Photography update

Sometimes you need dynamite…

Well, yesterday is the type of day I'd like to see repeated sometime never. I figured out that as good at communicating as I am with the written word, I suck when it comes to talking with Lynn. The resulting blowout was...unpleasant. As unpleasant as it was though, it got us talking, and actually listening. … Continue reading Sometimes you need dynamite…

Back in the saddle

Today was busy! Up and out the door early, conference most of the day, then my first workout in a few days. Damn that felt good. This evening I joined B for supper on his birthday. Still trying to figure out how he ended up cooking on his birthday, but I appreciate the gesture! After … Continue reading Back in the saddle

Getting back on track.

Somewhat quiet day today. Church this morning, then instead of going out for lunch Lynn and I grabbed some sandwich materials and had a quiet lunch at home. This afternoon Lynn napped and I played RDR2 and actually got myself downstairs for a workout. Between being fatigued and busy I have not managed to find … Continue reading Getting back on track.

Quiet time.

Fairly quiet day at home today. I'm more or less caught up on my work projects, for a switch. I was able to get a hunk of work done yesterday while I was covering the store for Lynn. I'm covering the store tomorrow as well, then taking part/covering a health and wellness Symposium in town … Continue reading Quiet time.

Today was busy. I was running sound at church this morning, then after church we did our usual lunch thing with people from church. After lunch we took a drive out to Halkirk to poke around the Snackshack, then home. After we got home I started my new workout from the Kinesiologist I saw on … Continue reading

Paying off.

My hard work is paying off. I had an appointment with a nurse in my clinic who specializes in weight management. According to her machine, since I saw her last in the beginning of March, I am down 6 lbs, but have lost 12lbs of fat and gained 6lbs of lean muscle mass. Considering the … Continue reading Paying off.

That’s a wrap, RDR2…

After taking a day and a half off, I am feeling recharged and ready to take on the week. I definitely needed the downtime, and with the way this week is shaping up, it's a good thing I took. Looking at the calendar, this week is shaping up to be busy, but slightly more sane … Continue reading That’s a wrap, RDR2…

Making a life worth living…

So much for getting back into my workout routine today.... I woke up this morning, and my foot frigging hurt. Back to Advil and wrapping it I go. Oh well, it could be worse. I just need to be careful I don't push it and prolong the injury. Today has been quiet. Lynn is in … Continue reading Making a life worth living…

Regaining my equilibrium

Today was definitely a challenge, but I made it through. The hardest part of the day was running the audio/video board at the church today for a friend's funeral. On top of everything else over the last couple of days, it was tough. With where my mind is it would be way too easy to … Continue reading Regaining my equilibrium

Working on my photography

Today was steady, if not overly busy. Ran a couple errands for the bookstore, checked out the town rummage sale, and managed to scoop up a couple of good deals, met a friend for lunch, then back to the rummage sale. I managed to get a good workout in this afternoon, finally incorporating the third … Continue reading Working on my photography

Sometimes stopping isn’t the answer…

Little Theatre is done for the year, and I am grateful to have again taken part. Despite the adversity I've dealt with during the month of February, I am grateful for the experience and for the production that this group of talented individuals managed to bring together. The hours may have been long, but seeing … Continue reading Sometimes stopping isn’t the answer…

Sometimes doing nothing is doing something important.

Well, I didn't get as much done today as I planned, but that's okay. After the events of the last couple of weeks, I definitely needed the down-time, because even my weekend off ended up being busy. After traveling home Friday, I ended up on the go for most of Saturday and Sunday, between theatre … Continue reading Sometimes doing nothing is doing something important.

“The list” by Toby Keith drives home the importance of putting yourself on your to do list.

A quiet day today. Country star Toby Keith has a song talking about life that should be required listening. "The List." Bounced between writing, theatre projects, and Red Dead Redemption 2. RDR2 continues to amaze me with the level of detail that the story has had. The only real knock I have found with this … Continue reading “The list” by Toby Keith drives home the importance of putting yourself on your to do list.

Taking a time out.

Taking a timeout in Paintearth County on Dec. 31 To say that the last week has been busy is a drastic understatement. After the last week, I am beat. Between meetings, writing, more meetings, theatre practise, and the general day to day of life I am wiped out. That's why today I slept in. I … Continue reading Taking a time out.
