August 2018 was a strange month. On the one hand, it was full steam ahead, and on the other full stop! It was one of those months where everything costs twice as much and takes three times as long as you expect.
I learn and grow every day.
|🙂||🙂||I read five books this month, and the one that sticks in my mind is Intuitive Eating, mainly because it’s not just eating good food that we tend to deny ourselves. So much of modern life seems to rely on denying ourselves access to any of the things that make life worth living.|
I enjoy exercising my lean, healthy 59 kg body several times a week.
I walk more steps each day.
|Mostly good at the transplant clinic. The kidney is doing fine, my heart is doing fine, but my blood pressure is still high, so I’ve now got another pill to take. And another reason to lose weight. I’m so annoyed.|
Plan a more energetic wardrobe
|🙂||😐||I realised I hadn’t had a haircut for three months and got a quick trim while I was shopping one day. Can’t say I’m happy with it. Time to think more about that. It is frustrating, yet fascinating that my post-transplant hair is so different to my pre-transplant hair, and I still haven’t got a handle on it.|
We were invited to a Cocktail Party, and I blew my wardrobe budget on an event outfit, which I wish I had organised before. Though to be honest, if I had, it wouldn’t have fitted me anyway…
Thought about Wardrobe Diets.
I love meeting new people, and as I am friendly and outgoing, I make friends easily.
|🙂||🙂||It’s been a quiet month with many friends on vacation, relocating offices or otherwise unavailable. It was one of the contributing factors in my thoughts about the types of friendship, and also about L♥ve.|
Though I was a little busy with a bunch of lunchtime business webinars.
I share my knowledge, time, and money with those who need it.
|🙂||🙂||Another quiet month on the contribution front, with local shopping, sharing advice on forums, and picking up things other people have dropped.|
I am brave and adventurous not afraid to try new things.
|🙂||🙂||There’s a long story behind it, but I have accepted a challenge to write a short story a week for a year. I might even share some of them here.|
I live in a beautiful house, with a tranquil garden.
Happy and healthy creatures and find my garden a haven.
|🙂||😐||Both dogs were in and out of the vet; Pretty Girl for her lumpy leg, and Pretty Boy with an ear infection. They’re old, and I can’t help thinking that soon they will leave us.|
I got round to sharing the interesting results of my housework survey.
We’ve had some sunny days which reminded me that I was supposed to be thinking about how to shade the house in summer. Definitely have to get to that…
I did get stuff done in August 2018, but a lot of it wasn’t the kind of stuff that made progress towards my goals. Not much in the way of stickers for the same reason – most of my work wasn’t directed towards finishing Minimally Viable Housekeeping, but towards fixing website issues caused by the new Gutenberg editor.
I’ve been trying one of the dotted notebooks. I’m 40 pages in and I just don’t like it. Only 200 pages to fill before I can go back to lines. I wonder what that says about me as a person!
How did August 2018 go for you?
