I'm struggling to find time to do everything these days.

Christmas was good, but busy - Dog and parents kept us busy. Do grocery shopping, set the table, clear the table, fill the dishwasher, empty the dishwasher, find things to watch on the telly to please everybody, walk the dog, feed the dog, give computer lessons, keep things tidy, print crosswords, ... And I'm lucky that I'm not the one in charge of food in our household.

Then it took me a while to wind down, and there were all the things I wanted to do - meet friends, go shopping, walk Timber on the beach, ... I was scheduling the days like a project. It all got too much.

Finally, I'm starting to slow down. Today was a good day. Dog park with Timber and BB, feed Timber, have a bath, have lunch, give Willow a scratch on the head, read a book, close my eyes for a while, go to the dog park with Timber and BB, feed Timber, ... and here I am.

Tomorrow will hopefully be the same again. And I'll do a bit of drawing too. But I think it'll be a while before I paint a watercolour again.

And as soon as I finished watching Blue, I started Susanna! They are like short stories - they only take a small amount of your time, yet, they are completely immersive. Seeing Anna Paquin in this has reminded me that we must catch up on True Blood - we're way behind. Hey, come to think of it, why don't they have True Blood on Netflix? I feel I've run out of things to watch there - I tried Being Erica, and I tried Drop Dead Diva, they are fun, but they lack depth.


Just finished watching Season 2 of Blue. I wish they had stuff as good as this on Netflix!
