Sophie the Cat says Good Morning! PRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR 


wrkinprogrss admires Sophie

Nice to see Sophie! I hope her business outside is concluded at a wisely appropriate time for all concerned. (Perhaps she's busy on errantry, a la Diane Duane's cat-wizards?)

Meanwhile, today, I will:

  • post this at PA
  • post at SR
  • check my balance mindmap (did a bit)

  • do at least 4.6 hours of job work, including the following tasks:
    • attend 10:00 meeting
    • order new laptop
    • file remaining bugs (made minor progress on this)

  • shower and wash my hair
  • cook rice and artichokes
  • call J
  • look for SR notes re moderate eating

  • make progress on kitchen wk (only a smidge)
  • do 15 minutes of Qi Gong
  • use the Balancer

I'd like to do these things, too:

  • pay & mail bills
  • do a Mood Log exercise or some other recovery-oriented activity
  • be in bed with lights and sound off by 23:30

Best wishes for your Friday and your weekend!
