Fill-In Sunday


Cat and nurse picture, cartoon, laptop
I believe I can deal with procrastination.
I need to go "Marie Kondo" my desk to reduce distraction.
It does not do good to lose my attention.
(And do other things that just cost me tension).

I find self-caring to be a walk in the park
(Well, not really)
But when I get started self-caring gives me this spark
It opens my eyes, I can see in the dark
I can fight my anxiety and put it in a halt!


          It is a late morning for me getting up from a late evening from doing homework last night. I should say from the early morning because I went to bed past midnight. Part of me is thinking, "what am I doing?" I decided to go back to college to advance my degree. It has been a year now, and here I am still going. I am two subjects away from going up a level. Doing school work gets my mind off the stressful situations around me--family, work--which I love. 

          I made instant Pho and added ground meat. My friends would be shocked, as I switched to non-meat diet since last May but it is veggie meat :) so it's okay. I plan to do some work after this blog post entry, then go to church. I will go to the gym for an hour workout, longer than my usual and try to do about 10,000 steps of the treadmill and other machines. Yesterday, I only did 8,000 :( because I buried my head doing homework and it is just not easy marching in place as I type while my head was covered with books and papers. Can you imagine?

          Good Sunday to you all! May your day be restful or productive or both.

  1. Very nicely done. I love your fill-ins. I love your kitty too.

    Going to school is hard when you're working. I so remember, but I'm glad I stuck with it. It served me well.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a blessed Sunday and week. ♥

  2. Hi Carin, thank you for dropping by for a visit. Hubby and I are encouraging each other to keep up the target of 10,000 steps per day. Most days we can but some days are just too busy to accomplish. Have a happy new week!

New Year 2021 Gratitude

Welcome to my first post in the New Year 2021. Most of my off days are still spent indoors. It is cold outside. 39 degrees in Colorado. With still some social distancing, I still have many things to be grateful for this second wave of COVID. A family member was hospitalized in December but released in early January in better health. The COVID population in my hospital is low. I completed my 2/2 COVID immunization. It is something to be thankful for being in Tier 1A as I work in the intensive care unit. A working fireplace to sit close to - at home. A pedicure service for me and my daughter (and a cheese grater for callus removal *laughing out loud*) Chair massager at home to go home to after a long day at work. My family loves the chair, even little Josiah who is not even two. Funny Josiah whatever he does. He eats like a dog with a spoon and fork in his hands. Who needs those spoons and forks? They are just props. Kiddie masks fitting Josiah. He does not mind much wearing it. For many

Comfort

I harvested some greens from my indoor hydroponic planter . The greens can't get fresher than these, harvested right from my dining room. They are perfect with the Costco-size beef and pork.  I cooked six dishes. Most left-overs will be frozen for later like after-work dinner when most times, we are too exhausted to cook. I am grateful for the memory of cooking comfort I remembered from childhood in the Philippines--peanut stew, adobo, pork chops seasoned with lemon pepper, and sour soup.  I am grateful for the recipes readily available from the internet, the oven, instapot, and air fryer. I was able to cook 6 dishes in 2 hours, preparation time included. You'd think I was in a cooking contest under time-pressure. Only the judges (my family) are more forgiving and very appreciative of my cooking. I am grateful for the simple things I get to enjoy with my family--walking outdoors, however cold, before the snow hit--picture taking, and watching TV together. I am even thankful for
