Social Health: (Helping Kids) Karate Classes = 5 Scouts Meetings Zoo = 3 Ocean = 2 Park = 1.
Going well, it motivates me to get things cleaned up that I may have friends over again. Whales just passed by our karate class, I don’t know why that’s cool, but I like it.
Physical Health: (Exercise) Watching my food in a medium way, still not fully back to exercise, but doing a lot of outings and yard work so it is all I can do for now. When I come back it will be Abs and Total Body. Taking a while to come back, but still teaching martial arts and that stuff.
Mental Health: (Writing) I like the clarity from writing, I feel like I need it to be productive at this time in my life.
Saturday: My dad left on a repair trip, my husband took me out for tacos for our anniversary, I did some garden work. I was able to clear up the square foot garden, the kids planted flower seeds, I put down edging and a pathway layout.
Sunday: Last karate at home this week gardening and black sand beach. Started moving the wall out to the front behind the shrubs, I don’t know how much work that is going to take… but I hope the project doesn’t lag behind the supplies too much I don’t want to lose momentum until the front garden is ready. The hedges we planted last year mostly rooted, yet are not large, the mulch works well, in general, the path laid down by last year made this year possible, I want to move the wall forward to give the garden more room, make it more stable, the mulch I made last year works well, so after putting the wall up I will much next to it, and make a DIY bamboo planter behind to spread the bamboo out…
Monday: Last week my husband finished work forms for a new job, while my daughter did her work alone for the first time, this week my husband has started work in this state for the first time. Goal setting: retouch hair Sat 10AM, fix the leak in the small pond Sat 8AM, get school more organized Monday, rebait for bugs in the house Mon 7PM, move the soil to garden area Sat 11AM, paint for fun after lunch, start book project about time management 6-7AM, Rimworld at night 1 hour 7-8. (Future: Pebble paths, patio screen, plug mushrooms, paths/walls/ponds). Purchased some watches to help stay on time, hopefully. My kids met the neighbors today it was nice, we haven’t been as social due to the pandemic, they like our chickens which is cool, the neighbor beyond the neighbor actually pets the chickens, which is so sweet.
Tuesday: Last week we covered the periodic table of elements and nomenclature as well, this week we finished out Social Emotional Learning class, had a cake for that, and did quite a bit of Health covering topics like the respiratory system, the skin, addiction, assertive communication, abuse, ending the cycle of abuse. We went outside as well, it’s been easier to watch both kids outside so it is nice to increase the time we spend outside closer to what it used to be.
Wednesday: Last week we went to the zoo and did martial arts and painting and dancing it was nice, this week we went to the beach and did karate, then drama, then lunch, then swimming, it’s harder than the zoo, but I like it better, whales passed by and that was really cool. I started learning a little Hebrew from a student, it’s always nice to learn a new alphabet I like symbols.
Thursday: Last week new chemistry kit came in and it felt really good. Started Mario is Missing for Social Science. This week we did a lot of Social Science, we hit the quota of 2.5% then did another 11% of the course. It’s an easy class, but we do slow down like to watch biographies of Sacagawea, ext. My daughter took class notes for Agriculture and Social Science today, not a ton of notes, but it was the first time, so that was cool. We ran a bunch of errands, I don’t love it, but at least we did the gas, mail, trash, on one day instead of breaking up a ton of days.
Friday: Last week made magnet labels for a new time schedule to try to keep track of the day better got some fountain stuff that kicked off a reno of the front garden. This week I worked for two days on the wall, but didn’t have time the other days so I’m hoping I can finish that wall this weekend, because I can’t move the bamboo until I move the rocks, I can finish the fountain until I move the bamboo… so step A, I hope I can get done this weekend, or at least step A 1.0…
Finish the front garden!
> Butterfly Garden Project: Looking at the front garden plan trying to break down steps, 1. building the wall by the hedges to move the rock pile in the way of the bamboo as well as to define the front area. 2. planting the bamboo behind the rock wall 3. defining the area for the bamboo to grow into. 3. weeding the garden beds/bamboo bed. 4. putting down weed cloth and securing it in the paths. 5. gathering and placing stone in the pathway. 6. planning a near by place for compost. 7. trench for electrical. 8. placing fountain pot. 9. Fill and assemble fountain. 10. Adjusting fountain possible water plants… find a place to return outdoor toys…
> Front Garden: Level slightly with cuttings, mulch a path on side of wall to help hedges grow in, perhaps sun flowers and watermelon?
Fix the small pond – Get more organized – Live life to the fullest
