Ten Thought Tuesday

Ten Thought Tuesday: March 26th 2019

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all doing well.  Here’s what’s on my mind today.

    1. I had a really rough day yesterday (I’ll probably be writing about it soon).  Today, however, I’m doing a lot better and it feels great.
    2. I ended up sewing another bento bag last week using a different pattern.  I am absolutely in love with it.  Check out my Instagram feed if you want to take a look!
    3. I’ve been extremely productive today so far and it feels GOOD.  I was up before the kids and by 9am I’d already completed 2 loads of laundry, made a fresh batch of granola, completed my son’s and husband’s lunches, sterilized my breast pump, emptied the dishwasher, made my bed and got dressed.  Yay me!  (On a side not, I really do need to start getting up before everyone else – I’m in a better mood and am more productive when I do).
    4. I’ve currently got a test batch of double chocolate muffins in the oven.  I’ve decided to try using mashed avocado, greek yogurt and a bit of oil instead of butter and I’m really eager to see how it turns out (they smell absolutely fantastic though!).  *Fingers crossed*
    5. Last week I was FINALLY able to go for a run outdoors.  Woot woot!  I’m just going to have to learn to pace myself though; I ended up running so hard that I had to stop before the end because of tightness in my chest.  It was so uncomfortable that I actually ended up unclasping my running bra once I had reverted to a walk.  What can I say?  I was happy to be running outside!
    6. I’ve picked my piece for my flute recital at the end of June.  It’s Pergolesi’s Allegro spiritoso from his concerto in G Major.  Here is James Galway’s rendition of the piece (my rendition will be considerably slower and will contain considerably less embellishments lol).
    7. Tonight, we’re eating porc tenderloin stuffed with brie and cranberries, with steamed asparagus and green beans and tri-coloured quinoa.
    8. My next Ten Thought Tuesday will happen in April!  Is it just me or did March just zoom by?
    9. I need to get the upper hand on my house.  I’m sick of it being so untidy.  But I get discouraged because it seems like an unattainable goal if I want to remain sane and not be picking stuff up (or negotiating with my kids to get them to pick stuff up) all the time.
    10. I think I’m coming down with something.  I’ve had a scratchy throat since this morning and have been dealing with a lovely case of the sniffles.  *Sigh*  I honestly can’t complain as I haven’t been super sick this year, but I really don’t want to be dealing with a cold either.
    11. I’ve recently discovered that eating sugar gives me headaches.  So yeah…I’m working on cutting that out of my diet by starting with reducing my consumption of things that contain refined sugar.

I hope you are having a great day!  What’s on your mind this Tuesday?

Je suis très touchée de lire ce blog, j’aimerais tant être une fée de gm pour faire quelques petites actions !!! à ta place pour amoindrir toutes les tâches à faire……bien oui tu es une maman extra et te permettre d’être bien !!!! est légitime, normale, vas-y , prends soin de toi, continue de faire tes “runs” mollo… et surtout pratiques la flûte – James Galway, un vrai délice à écouter, cela fait vraiment partie des musiques que nous adorons, le petit côté celtique folklore et l’accompagnement au piano c’est sublime, merci belle Sophie. Au plaisir de te voir bientôt. gm&gp en amour avec toi.

    1. Merci grand-maman. Mathieu en fait beaucoup – je suis chanceuse d’avoir un mari aussi impliqué, mais il m’arrive de me mettre beaucoup de pression sur les épaules pour aucune raison.

      J’ADORE Galway! La légerté lorsqu’il joue est exceptionnelle et son interprétation des pièces celtiques est impressionnante. C’est toujours un plaisir de l’entendre jouer!
