I’ve been feeling pretty good today. I went for a long walk on the beach in the morning and it was definitely a mood-booster! Just getting outside and walking in nature has such an incredible, positive effect on my mood and energy …and just makes me feel generally good.
On the way back, I stopped at the supermarket to pick up a few groceries, mostly veggies, some almond milk and other random things. I never really know what to buy for Anders because I feel like he really doesn’t eat a lot of things. He mainly just eats bread, whatever he puts on the bread (ham, cheese, butter, pate, etc.) and then whatever I cook for dinner. Besides, we were already stocked up on those items.
I, on the other hand, am doing pretty well on this new-ish plant-based diet that I’m really trying to get in to. So far, so good and I really want to keep this for EVER!
I made a smoothie bowl for breakfast that I didn’t take a photo off (darn!) and now I can’t even remember all of the ingredients…it was, however a green smoothie and it was delicious. I’m thinking that maybe I should start posting my recipes here…
The rest of the day was basically spent cooking and doing laundry. Around 4 pm, my knees and legs were so tired from standing up all day. I decided to make a “sunshine smoothie juice” and to sit outside in the sun for a bit while drinking it. I asked Anders if we should “do something” with our garden… We have a really nice garden and lawn that we never use. We don’t even have any furniture, so I just sat on the grass. The other day I was thinking that we should at least have a few lounge chairs or a sun bed…or something. Anders said that if we should “do something”, we should have a swimming pool put in. So, we might do that. We’ve talked about it before…it’s just that it’s a lot of $$$$$ and the last time we talked about it, I think we agreed that we’d rather spend the money on travel or invest it.
Anders went out to see some guests staying in one of our vacation rental villas and left me to do whatever I wanted to for dinner (I made a salad with romaine lettuce, baked pumpkin, soy bacon bits, Parmesan cheese, raisins, sunflower seeds and balsamic glaze…and had WINE!!!).
Being solo for the night actually suited me very well, because I got all wrapped up in changing my blog …again!
I usually go through these changing phases where I have to completely re-do my blog, otherwise I’ll go crazy. After an hour or more, I finally managed to find a new WordPress blog theme (Floral) that I really like (for now).
And then…then I was thinking about sharing my blog on Facebook – again. I think, I might just do it this time.
What’s holding me back?
Nothing except for the fact that I KNOW that as soon as I start sharing on Facebook, I’ll start caring too much about likes and comments. I already have this problem on Instagram, and I really don’t want it to multiply by adding another platform into the mix. BUT, on the other hand, I should be able to distance myself from it and just say “I don’t care” and actually not care (*I wish*).
Yes, this is my life. This is ridiculous. I know, I know… I also know that I’m not the only one with this problem, but why can’t I just learn to not give a f*…?
I’m still working on it. Obviously.
P.S. I shouldn’t have had the wine because it made me completely bloated!!!!! Urgh.
