June 17th, 2018.
Giving myself some time to relax.
It seem unreal to say that since coming back from Japan I have been busy every single day, but it does feel like that. As usual, I’m never quite sure where all the time goes, but especially on the past few weeks time just dissolved.
I think it has to do with my “secret project”, as it’s been taking up a lot of my time on a daily basis, but doesn’t feel excessive as it’s something I’m really excited about.
But today I had the type of day I haven’t had in a while: a slow, completely work-free day.
To be honest, I prefer busier days, as when I do little I tent do get headaches and feel like I’m wasting my time; but sometimes, like today, it is necessary.
Mainly because of this little pug up here.
She has been having issues with her stomach for a few days, and it got pretty bad.
The vet gave us medicines and a new diet to follow (she has pancreatitis and we believe that – after reading reviews online – the brand of food we usually give her changed their recipe slightly, causing her some stomach sensitivity).
Whenever Maya doesn’t feel well, my life stops. I dedicate my day to make sure she is looked after, so I’ve been just spending time with her, barely leaving the house.
Luckily, after some medicines, her pain seems to be gone, and now I’m left with some bottles to collect her poop (I’m sure you all wanted to know about that), and some probiotics.
Because I was mostly indoors today, not doing much, I thought I would get around to select a fragrance I liked: a few weeks back I received this kit with samples of each perfume LeLabo sells.
I had smelled them before, but couldn’t quite pick my favourite as so many are really nice.
So I got some strips of paper to spray each on, and tried my best to organise them from the one I like the most, to the one I like the least.
The winner turns out to be Labdanum 18, which unlike the other options on my top 5, I had no idea what it contained (or even knew what it was). When I went to the website, I was impressed by how well each scent is represented, and I was surprised to see the notes in Labdanum 18, since I really had no clue.
But anyway, the one time I left the house today, I headed to Homebase quickly to grab a large pot, paint and plant-care goodies. Oh, and soil!
In fact, I’ve been needing to re-pot my monstera as it has grown a lot since I first got it.
I got around to do just that this afternoon; I’m a bit sad to have to move it from my bedroom, but it looks beautiful in the living room, and I’m hoping it’s going to grow even more, now that it has a much bigger pot.
I’m now here with both the puggies, in the couch, writing this blog post, putting together a new month folder for my bullet journal, and about to start cooking dinner.
Felix is hanging out with friends this evening, so I’m looking forward to watch a horror…
do you have any suggestions?
What have you been up to this weekend?
