Sundays are cool days too.

Without wanting to be too specific, I do have to say that this has been a pretty good day for a Sunday as they tend for the most part to be boring days but maybe because I counted on that, this one turned out okay. And it isn't finished yet because I still have to walk Tyke and fix dinner and I am looking forward to those two chores very much.

Without me really planning it that consciously, I've made it so that my days for the most part are filled with things I like to do most. I like to do the dishes and I like to do the laundry and I like to cook dinner and I like to walk Tyke. These are all meditative sort of jobs and I don't need to rush through them and can take my time doing them. 

I never like to do anything in a hurry but like to contemplate the process as it takes place and pay attention to what I am doing. I enjoy thinking about each movement and act and watch myself and my hands at work. There is a lot of peacefulness in that and it quiets me down. I do not like being rushed through something.

Tyke enjoys his liverwurst sandwiches very much and when I say, "Do you want bread with liverwurst?", it causes quite some excitement here because Gandhi also knows what it means and rushes to the kitchen ahead of Tyke. I think she is really the smarter of the two, we just don't pay enough attention to her so it goes unnoticed. 

I didn't go to the supermarket because the ones of my chain of stores weren't open and I also piddled away my time doing a hundred other little unimportant things  that made me happy. All those thing that you do to fill a Sunday with. I'll have to go tomorrow because I am all out of orange juice and I have decided that I like drinking it very much. It's great in the morning and the evening when you need some quick energy. 

I am having two tilapia filets  for dinner because I have decided to eat more protein and less carbohydrates. I had toast today and two pieces of it didn't agree with my stomach well. I was uncomfortable afterwards and still am to some degree. I always feel better after eating protein and I always eat my chicken or fish first at dinner time. 

Tomorrow the Exfactor will be here to drink coffee and hopefully he will have gone to the phone shop to buy a protective case for my smart phone so I can start carrying it with me. I gave him instructions on what to get and I´m sure he´ll do a great job choosing something. He can always call me when he´s in the shop and he´s stumped. I hope he remembers to do that and doesn´t come home first like he did when he was in the grocery store and couldn´t figure it out.

We could be twins these days, the small things pleasure me so much.

Glad your Sunday has been so great.

I would dance for some liverwurst too.

It is very special that you and the Ex-Factor have such an easy going relationship.
