Health for days journey – day 4

Good morning (well it’s past twelve but..) dear friends,

How are you today? Happy because tomorrow is Friday? (Do you work weekends?)

I would like to report that I have managed to do my yoga last night before bed, so I’ve been really good and have been doing it for many days and loving it more and more. I also managed to watch an episode or breaking bad with mah man. I’m actually loving it.

I’ve had my oatmeal for breakfast. I didn’t feel like coffee at the time, I think I’m going to make myself a cup now, and get a big glass of water. (I actually got up and did this, spilled the coffee on my microwave plate, need to wash it, ha!)

Coffee in hand, let’s see what I would like to do today:

  • Try a new workout. Zumba for days. But easy. I have two left feet and my coordination never kicked in, since I was a baby.
  • Wash dishes from dinner and from breakfast (and lunch, I will certainly get some dirty)
  • Dry and put away dishes from yesterday.
  • Organize my home office. Yesterday I picked up a bunch of things around the house that were in the wrong place and being sooo organized I dumped them all on my desk and closed the door.
  • Cook something delicious for our anniversary dinner.
  • Maybe do some dessert. Am I allowed to have dessert today?
  • Make my bed;
  • Open my bedroom windows for a while, then close them and turn on the dehumidifier. (We are having humidity issues)
  • Beg Mr. R to vacuum the living room because I hate doing it.
  • Do my Yoga.
  • Read some Harry Potter and Hellie (my friend’s novel)
  • Call my uncle and make sure we still have lunch plans for Saturday (I’m going to meet is new girlfriend whose name is…. Rosa. That should be funny)
  • Confirm that my mom is coming with us to my doctor’s appointment on Saturday morning. She wants to go this time. Poor doctor.
  • Confirm that my sister’s boyfriend is coming to stay with us this weekend. My sister and Rui’s brother are coming and maybe my sister’s boyfriend too. We have the kids this weekend haha! Rui says he’s going to make them work in the vegetable garden.
  • Watch a movie.
  • See what we need to buy for the kids to eat during the weekend (They’re 19, 19 and 21) but for us they are the kids.
  • Read some blogs (I follow so many people but I make sure I’m present.
  • Work on some Awards. No joke I’m nominated for 10 at the moment, and they take time so… maybe you’ll have to endure two or three today. Sorry.


Some thoughts:

Why do I have almost 600 followers and only about 100 people read my posts? Is this normal? Does it happen to you guys? Why do people follow and then don’t read? Am I doing something wrong?

If you follow and read but never left a comment, please leave a comment today, introducing yourself and calling my attention to your blog, okay?

Have a wonderful day, my friends. See you later.

  1. Congrats on your anniversary! 😊
    Looks like you’ve got loads of work to do. Oh and btw about the comments – it’s quite normal. Sadly, the number of followers doesn’t automatically indicate the number of people who actually read I guess sometimes when you’re following too many blogs, you tend to miss some posts.

  2. Awesomeness. Sounds like you got a full weekend coming. I got tons of plans as today is my last day of finals lol.
    Anyway, I love that you have most of your day planned, anytime I do that it never works out 🤣
    The follower thing…very normal I would say. There are people who do read and comment, I try to do that as well however I can’t always comment which also depends on how busy I am and how many blogs I have to catch up to. 😊 but there are* people who never read and only go around giving likes lol. I have several people who are known culprits that tend to like my posts one after the other. My notifications go crazy sometimes lol. But for the most part you’ll have a loyal following. 😊

  3. It’s so motivating to see you plan your days. It really makes me want to do it as well. And I think I will! As for followers, yes, it’s quite normal. Some just don’t have the time to read every day and others, as another commenter has mentionned, just follow to be followed back and like without even reading. I wish I could read and comment on every blog and post I follow, but sadly, I just don’t have enough hours in one day. Someone needs to invent a pause button so that we can put our days on pause and get more time out of them for what we really want to do.

    • That would be amazing! I could do a little of all my hobbies each day + all the tasks! Do the list, I would love to so what you’re up to. I’m super nosy and love to see other people’s lists!


  4. Your confusion about the follower point is valid. But I realised that a lot of people are busy and they do probably get to your blog later. Or they do not because they are constantly on the move and just end up putting up their two bits on life. Let not the number of likes and comments validate you Cheila. We all have become too addicted to validation and it has got to stop somewhere, if you know what I mean. Now if I sound preachy, throw some popcorn at me (and I will catch it just like your Rosa ;))

  5. At the end of the day if you enjoy writing who cares how many people read or follow you? Obviously it’s amazing when people do follow or read and I get super excited but at the same time my blog is for me x x x plus your blog is awesome so if people don’t read then they are missing out z

  6. Hi! Stumbled across your blog, and it got me thinking about the followers vs. the readers. I like to think it’s because people follow many blogs, but don’t have time to read every single post so your posts get lost in the shuffle. I have noticed though that certain people are much more present than others, and it makes for a much more enjoyable experience while blogging. Happy Thursday!

  7. I love reading your blog every day! Perhaps some people don’t have the time. For me, sitting down to read everyone’s posts is the highlight of my day!
