I am grateful for another mostly worky day. I am also ambivalent; I wouldn’t mind not working for a bit if the prospect didn’t stress me out so much.
I am grateful for lunch with Julie this afternoon. If you ever go to Hong Kong West at Richmond and Fort here in Victoria, I recommend ordering the Black Chicken. It’s not on the menu. I don’t know what’s in there, and they won’t tell me. It’s really, really good.
I am grateful for the wisdom that allowed me to take a break this afternoon. I googled “Optimum time for a nap”, and found that it’s best to go for less than 20 minutes or more than 90 minutes. I didn’t have 90 minutes, so I set my alarm for 20 minutes, but awoke after 10 feeling great. I’ll do that again.
I am grateful for an hour or two with my boys tonight. Julie was out, and we went for a quick walk up to Summit Park. It’s beautiful up there when the sun is going down. My boys clamber around rocks like mountain goats, and it’s fun to watch them do that.
