Weekly Report for the week beginning in 2013-09-23

Tuesday, Oct 1, 2013

Very unproductive week, most of the tasks scheduled for the week were left unfinished, even though this week saw advance in the most pressing projects that were overdue.

Had a great time cooking with S, as part of our Sunday routine; some great picadillo, with a spicy touch. Had another try at roasting a whole chicken, this time in a teriyaki pineapple marinade - the oven got completely splattered with oil. We have to remember to just pat the marinade dry and throw it in the rack, and also to tie the legs to prevent it from opening apart; and place an extra tray at the bottom of the oven… We’ve started wondering if it’s too much trouble.

Relationships continued to be a strong part of the week; I wrote a long-delayed letter to M, and enjoyed the long walks and cooking with S.

I started a personal project to take up wet shaving; ordered some supplies from Amazon, and have had success in using the double edge (or “safety”) razor. Lathering the shaving cream with a nice brush and applying it to the face brings an element of care and sophistication to my morning routine. I can’t wait to try different scents of shaving creams and after shave balms and eventually trying to lather shaving soaps.

Started measuring my blood pressure daily, and the numbers are very consistent and mostly in the optimal range.

Finished Crooked Little Vein, by Warren Ellis. Very energetic, easy to read, not much time to pause and think, but it was over much too soon.

Time Analysis

Sleep hygiene was poor again, even though I managed to track over 10 hours a day average. Time dedicated to browsing feeds (or Google+ or Twitter, or even Facebook) was the highest since I started tracking.
