Just doing lots of chores

Today was one of those day when you have intentions of getting things done, but you end up just running lots of little chores and not getting to anything you wanted to.

I went to the supermarket to pick up the groceries I’d ordered yesterday. Then back home I made some sourdough bread. My wife always asks me to make fruit and nut loaf, but I just want some bread that I can make a cheese sandwich with, so I rarely do it. But today I gave in and made bread with apricots and walnuts. I left it to rise outside on the balcony in the warmth of the day. It was a hotter day than we’ve been having recently, getting up to 30°C and very sunny.

I went for my 2.5k run. I took Scully in for a few hours of doggie daycare, because we had a bunch of things we needed to do that would be tricky juggling her as well. Then I had to help my wife return an office chair to her work and pick up a new chair. She’s working from home and picked up a chair last week for better posture than our dining chairs, but it wasn’t great, so wanted to swap it for a different one. I baked the loaf of bread after it had risen.

After lunch I went through some slides that the lecturer of the new data engineering course had made and wrote up some comments on them. And then before I knew it, it was time to do two ethics classes.

And then my wife and I went out for dinner. There’s a nice Szechuan restaurant near us that we used to go to sometimes, but we hadn’t been there since we got Scully, because they didn’t have any outdoor tables. But we walked past recently and they now have a couple of tables outside – probably a response to COVID. But it’s good for us because we can go there and take Scully. So we booked a table for tonight. I had my favourite dish, the chilli pepper prawns. Very spicy, but delicious.

And then back home, where it’s virtual board games night with the guys. I’ve already lost a couple of games of 7 Wonders, but I won a game of CuBirds.
