Day 149: Feels Like September Energy

It was pretty chilly this morning! Warmed up in the day but I can feel change is coming. For the past five month’s I’ve been on CERB and this month, I’m back to work. I’d been feeling a need for change for a year and I think I’ve finally figured out that I want and where I’m going. I’ve taken a gig with a studio doing social media and project management, all remote. Today was my first full day on the job and I really liked it! I’m not certain what the future holds but I’ve got a plan for now. I was texting a friend saying ‘I’m back bitchessss’ and she said “this feels like September energy“. Been wondering if it’s time to stop the daily diary on Day 150? I know the pandemic isn’t over, maybe I should keep it going? Tomorrow will tell!

Day 148: Young, Restless

I was not very productive today. Tooth was really hurting, took some CBD and Aleve to take away the pain. It was super hot out but I stayed inside all day. I didn’t work out, super lazy. Sean went to town in the afternoon and then I took him for a long rip on the wakeboard. He’s so good at it, blows my mind! For dinner, I made our new fav dish, avocado pesto pasta. I throw a handful of basic, a couple of garlic cloves, one avocado, salt, pepper, and olive oil in the food processor and voila, a deliciously creamy pasta sauce. It’s so good right out of the pot or the cold from the fridge. In other news, the YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS IS BACK ON TV. I can’t even tell you how much I missed the show. I know it might seem silly to love it so much but I’ve been watching it my whole life. When the show stopped due to COVID, that regular part of my day at 4:30 pm, when I wrap up work and wind down, wasn’t there. It’s a small step to normalcy and I’m glad to have it back.

Day 147: Ok One Moment, Over It The Next

I was dead tired today and spent the whole day watching Netflix on the couch. I also ate all the snacks I could find. I needed rest. I’ve had a bit of a sore tooth that acts up every now and then. I know I should get it fixed. Maybe I will next time we’re back in the city. I’ve been watching Good Girls S3, it’s ok. We also started The World’s Most Wanted but tbh it made us both fall asleep. I haven’t run in a few days and I feel like a slug. Hopefully this week I find my mojo and get back to it. These times are so weird. I love this post from @internetstacy, it’s ok to not feel ok all the time. We’re all just trying to get through this, hang in there.

Day 146: Sean’s Birthday!

A little bit of a different birthday than previous years but we made the most of it! Last night we had a family sushi picnic. It’s been over 6mo since I had sushi and it was delicious! I packed a cake and sparklers and we sang to Sean in the park. I biked home with the cake before the picnic so it was a little dishevelled but still tasty! Gave Emily one of my Masks for Music by Melanie Goldman. She’s created hundreds of masks and raised over $15,000 for the Unison Benevolent Fund’s Covid-19 Relief Project. Learn more or donate here. This morning we drive back up to the cottage and there was so much traffic. Sean and I were both pretty exhausted and fell asleep in the afternoon watching Netflix on the couch. Woke up to a beautiful sunset over the lake. At night we heard pretty loud music and a cottage down the road had a live band! We were just about to head over when our friends rolled up in their boat to check it out from the lake. There were about 20 boats in the water jamming along to the tunes. We also did a…
