Second day of layoff today, and I did my best to keep busy.
I did some work outside, started on a few more mini-dice towers, and made the family dinner – home made pizza from scratch, which took up a large part of the day.
I’ve also been trying to keep moving while I’m off. I spend the nights walking back and forth for 8 hours when I’m working, so I don’t want to get into the habit of just sitting around. I’ve been taking at least a half hour walk around the neighbourhood twice a day, after meals, just to keep the blood sugar down.
After dinner we played a board game for a bit, which was fun. With the kids being older now, and working and attending university, it’s hard sometimes to find the time to spend with both of them at once.
After all of that, I did still manage to get some writing in. I started on a random scene, just something that popped into my head, about a woman meeting an older man in a coffee shop. I don’t know if I’ll take it anywhere, but it was something to write. Got my words in and passed 1667
