Day by Day – Health Journey (26.07.17) First to-do list in a while + movie update

Hey there,

How is everyone?

I should be doing a What’s Up Wednesday post today but I’m lazy and I don’t feel like doing it. It’s a very calm day, I feel well, just a bit tired. I’m spending time with my sister and Rosa. Even if I didn’t want to spend time with Rosa, I would be forced to, as she makes sure she follows me around all day, every day.

I have a TON of laundry to fold and a ton of laundry to do. I’m taking care of the latter, having a load drying and another one in the washer. I’m super lazy recently haha, what can I do? I still have a small to-do list for today:

  • Call back to know about interview results. It’s been a week.
  • Answer emails.
  • I was approved for one of those online projects as a freelance writer and I need to get the details straight and start working on the project. The other is almost settled as well, which is great.
  • I need to answer comments, I have so, so many.
  • I also need to read blogs, I’ve been lacking in that department.
  • I need to unload the dishwasher and then load it again.
  • I need to cook dinner.
  • I need to go and buy some medicine I finished yesterday.
  • I have to water the garden and take care of the plants.
  • I need to drink enough water and keep up with the healthy snacks.
  • I will listen to my relaxing music before bed, as I’ve done every day.
  • I want to read a few chapters of the two books I’m going through.
  • I’ll watch the last episode of The Handmaids Tale, and I’ll miss it. Have you watched it/read it?

I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow for my back. I’ve had back problems since I was a child, so I need to pay them some attention.

I’ll now show you an updated list of the movies I was supposed to watch this month:

Day 1: The Godfather

Day 2: The Godfather: Part II

Day 3: Casablanca

Day 4: Memento

Day 5: Sunset Boulevard

Day 9: Les Miserables

Day 10: Babel

Day 11: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Day 30: The Shack

Extras:

The Truman show

Many documentaries and YouTube videos on various topics

Poldark

Game of Thrones

North and South

The Handmaids Tale

I’m starting Upstairs, Downstairs today. Do you have any TV series suggestions? I’m especially fond of period dramas. That’s my thing as you can probably tell.

I also want to share the albums I’ve been listening to on Spotify, to relax before bed:

I go to “moods” and choose “sleep”.

Then, my favorite albums are:

  • Peaceful Piano
  • Jazz for Sleeping
  • Peaceful Guitar
  • Night Rain
  • Sleep Tight
  • There are several just called “sleep” which are very good as well.

These help me with anxiety and to unwind and feel sleepy. It has become a nightly ritual I look forward to, just being in the dark, earplugs, soft music and relaxation. I highly recommend it.

I’m off now. Which movie, from the list, do you think I should watch tonight?

xx

    Some pretty good to-dos on your list! I quite enjoyed Lion, but I’ve not seen any of The Handmaids Tale, will have to add that to my list. Inception was good, though admittedly I’ve never actually seen Les Miserables. Keep us posted with how you get on, and fingers crossed you get whichever answer you truly want from the interview.

    Ooh! The Truman Show is a favorite of mine. Anyway, I hope you’re having a great Wednesday. I haven’t seen most of those movies on your list, but I think you should watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

    ‘Before Sunrise’ from your list is a beautiful one. And since you asked these are some of my favourites, The Borgias (2011), The Vikings, Mr. Selfridges, The Durrells (this is an absolute hoot)… and a mini-series, Close to the Enemy.

    I don’t know how The Walking Dead is not included on your list! You totally need to check that out! Trust me it’s not exactly what the title suggests but so much more! You will be hooked if you are not already 🙂 X
