I did not succumb to emotional spending mostly, well except for a new handbag, I stuck to my list and budget. The bag is a compromise, that is I could not go over a certain amount of money and it had to utilitarian.
I am a bit more stable emotionally today, thanks to a long nights slumber, then I got up and cleaned up more ash from around the yard and garden. While the eruptions and ashfall have lessened, we still have a lot of cleaning up to do.
The intense physical activity of sweeping and shovelling and hosing wore me out and helped to get rid of a lot of tension. Plus exercise helps the body release the feel-good hormone so I’ll ride the boost for as long as possible.
If you’re reading this I hope you are having a great weekend.
