Better Now

I am thankful for meal planning and prep. I tasted Marrakesh stew for the first time at 13th Ave Coffeehouse the other day and now I’m making my own.  My version has way too much heat but it’s very tasty.

I’m thankful for pilates. I did my first session the other day and my trainer said I was strong. I was like, whaaaaa??? Nobody has ever told me that and now I want to workout more. Soon I’m going to be thankful for the Y because I’ll be getting a membership.

I’m thankful for Audacity which is apparently much easier to use than Garageband. The guy who trained me on it showed me how to amplify and I’m surprised I remembered how to do it when I got home. Anyway, I’m thankful for that guy and for the pre-recording studio at CJTR.

I’m thankful for fresh laundry and supper with my dad. We started watching La Mante on Netflix and it’s very scary. Dad didn’t find it to be scary but I did. I’m thankful for time with my dad and conversation about penitentiaries in Ontario.

I am thankful for The Princess Bride in book form. IT. IS. SO. GOOD.

I am thankful for coffee with Geoff, who was one of my theatre school teachers and now the Artistic Director of the Globe. We ran into each other once when I was in Toronto at the Dora Awards. I was volunteering and he was a guest so we didn’t have time to catch up. This weekend we did and talked theatre for a long time. I’ve forgotten so much since theatre school. It was nostalgic and lovely.

Today, I was prepping to go to my subbing job and found out it wasn’t till next week. I’m thankful for today so I can get some other work done.

I know I have more to be thankful for but I have to finish my to-do List before Five Alarm Funk tonight at the Casino.

P.S. I have a small confession. I know I told you I gave up caffeine but I had a small dash it in my decaf this morning. It was heavenly. You probably don’t care but I felt like a fraud.

P.P.S. I got back onto Bumble even though I told you I wasn’t going to online date anymore. So that’s another confession.

Okay. I feel better now.
