Tzippi Gets Up


Recommended Posts

So, I've been remarkably creatively productive recently. My friend and I have cowritten well over 300k words in a little over a two months. Prose, a ton of poetry (since when do I write poetry?) and I love it, but I'm  . . .not doing anything else. I'm not moving, barely cooking, doing the minimum at work because the only thing I really want to do is write. I'm not dealing with the quarantine much - I still go to work, etc, but the lack of socializing with anyone has been hard, and I've been concentrating on fantasy way too much. I've also been ignoring my other hobbies and interests.

 

So hard limits. My friend and I are setting times we'll write, and outside of that, doing other things. 

 

Goals for being a rounded person again:

 

* Writing main story 1 session per week only

* Move or garden daily (not just watering. Weeding, digging, building, moving)

* Cook 3x/week

* Meditate before bed

* 1 outing with LittleStockings per week.

* Back to crafting- work on knitting, weaving, embroidery, or sewing 3x/week

I promptly got distracted by the end of the semester and a bunch of my students gearing up to graduate! 

 

So, late to the party after RSVP'ing early. 

 

Successes: I have been moving a lot. It helps that it has been a rainy, lovely May here in SW Idaho (which is unusual), so I try to get out in the weather as often as I can if it isn't thunder-and-lightning-y. The 'Writing diet" has been good, too - I'm having more time to work on knitting socks and planning some other crafting ideas, plus writing poems and filks that I could potentially use for SCA Bardics with a few changes of place names to real world or SCA ones, instead of Witcherverse places. 

 

I haven't been great about bedtime meditating, but have been integrating mindfulness into my workday and trying to model mental health and self-care for my students. They are 14-18 year old boys, and think I am so lame, but whatever. No matter what I do, I'll be lame, which is incredibly liberating. 

 

So starting again today - going to cook tonight after Shabbat candles and songs and putting weeStockings down, and weather permitting, will take him out for a hike tomorrow. Maybe invite a friend and her kids as well! Social interaction, activity for weeStockings, and a chance to move and play outside!

 

Sad that my favorite nursery (for plants, not littles) is by appointment only, no kids, so I have to wait for Mr. Longstockings to get back from business truip to do more in the garden than weeding, but oh well. Late start to the garden this year. 

 

Great news - my whitecurrant apparently survived and is growing, my elderflower already has buds forming, and my stand of catmint has gone so crazy I can start drying some for tea now and have a ton by this fall. I also have enough mint to keep me in juleps and mojitos all summer.

Ok, littleStockings is napping, I'm making veggie and legume curry and rice/quinoa, cleaning the fridge. Going to take the wee guy out for a hike when he wakes up.
