Coronormal, Day 175

Up early for my run, Morning Office, Mass, fruit breakfast, and then a marathon of [online video] interviews and assessments relative to a possible diagnosis of some of my peculiarities. Though the interviews were done by 15:30, they wiped out my day; it’s exhausting to sit through your life being cast in an unfamiliar perspective,…

Coronormal, Day 174

I slept later than was ideal, so there wasn’t good time for running before setting up before saying Mass, so I said the Morning Office, then went to Mass, fruit breakfast, and settled in to work. As it turns out, I wasn’t concentrating well, so I finished up Job in Legends, then launched into Moses…

Coronormal, Day 173

Between chilly and fresh, so that with a hoodie is too warm, and without is distinctly cool, I took the longer course without timing it. I had some aches and pains at first, but these diminished as I ran. On the other hand, I was relieved to get home. Morning Office, hot breakfast, off to…

Coronormal Day 171

Fresh run in the morning, Morning Office, and then I celebrated the Mass for the first time in months. Margaret and I went to Rick’s for breakfast (sitting outside, as we do), then returned to work at home via Sainsbury’s, where we picked up some odds and ends. A CFP prompted me to think about…

Coronormal Day 170

The day was unexpectedly warm this morning, so as I took another untimed (1.4 mile) run I shed my hoodie. Morning Office, a bit of work on translating a poem from the Greek, Mass, breakfast, a rest-of-the-morning meeting with Fr Andreas about teaching homiletics, dropped off my black jackets in preparation for clerical season, some…

Coronormal Day 168

Has anyone noticed that over a relatively short interval, the time of sunrise seems to have raced from ‘before I would wake up’ to ‘Holy smoke, is it that late already?’ I did wake up in time to not rush, so undertook an untimed full morning run, cool weather, Morning Office, Mass, hot breakfast, and…

Coronormal, Day 167

Untimed mile and a half, Morning Office, Mass, crumpet for breakfast (out of fruit), some more reading in the Talmud, off to the city centre to pick up Margaret’s repaired MacBook, home, to the grocers for soy milk, lunch, more research on Elijah and his meteorological intercession in rabbinic sources, leftovers for dinner, and Dicte…

Coronormal, Day 166

I was late out of bed, and felt reluctant to go at all, so I planned to return to the short route this morning. I admit that I’d hoped for a noticeable difference in time since I’ve been running a longer course, but alas! the mile path ran at 9:36. My friend Zanne, who just…

Coronormal, Day 165

The air was distinctly chilly this morning; I ran with my hoody on for the first time since summer started. No timing, since I timed yesterday and I don’t want to feel pressure to stretch anything. It was a satisfactory mile+, then Morning Office, ‘Sunday’ with Will Crawley, hot breakfast, Morning Worship (featuring Greenbelt leaders),…

Coronormal Day 164

Distinct chill in the air this morning: I ran my mile+ in 13:49, not uncomfortable but very glad to be done. Morning Office, hot breakfast, trip to the grocery. Worked on and off on Legends, got distracted a lot. That, it runs out, is a day. Curry from Majliss for dinner, and Dicte in the…
