Pumpkin and his Paper Bed (October 23 2014) (2)[i]

Waking up later than I wanted at 12:41 p.m. I guess I needed to catch up on sleep. Ana woke up earlier to do her yoga and reflect. When sharing Buckwheat Berry Pancakes at the table I notice a drop in her mood – it's been noticeable as of late. She hasn't been happy the past couple of weeks – becoming more and more defensive over small criticisms. It's probably the lack of sunshine I explain. The weather's been gloomy, windy, rainy, and chilly. Us 757 folk aren't used to back-to-back bleak weather like this. We need our sunshine. This authentic Black Tea we're sipping on really refreshes this meal.

Teaching a couple lessons at Music Makers.

Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Vegan Cream Cheese and Strawberry Jam. Blue Quinoa Tortilla Chips with Hummus. Banana. Black Tea.

Back to lessons.

I come up with a chord progression for Emmy, one of my vocal/piano/everything students, to sing a song along with lyrics she already wrote. Good times...

At The Escape running a couple miles and lifting weights – also enjoying a 15 minute sauna session.


Dinner: Lentils with leftover Curry Vegetables and Quinoa.

Ana messages me a couple things...

"I realized today that my defensiveness towards constructive criticism has increased and I need to just calm myself down. My eagerness to please is the reason behind this defensiveness. I know that you do mean well when you comment because I know you're not the kind of person to tell me mean things. I just want you and anyone who eats my food to be happy and love it. Your criticism is good for me to hear so I can learn to perfect all the dishes/ desserts I make. I also want to say that I'm glad I kissed you and hugged you before I went to the store. Slowly looking into your eyes and just experiencing you and giving affection to you makes me happy and lucky to have you. When you came into bed last night all I wanted to do was snuggle you.. & i didn't -___-"
