I can’t sleep this morning. I had a little toss and turn in bed and decided to get up. I’ve been rewarded with remembering to put my bins out and a beautiful sunrise. I haven’t been up in the dark without a mission for a while and when I put my bins out the stars were glitter and it was still: most calming after being tossed around by the wind yesterday.
This week has been full of breakthroughs for me. The best week after a bit of a stagnant month. I got my car back after being on foot since early June. The car free time hasn’t been as painful as I had imagined and I’ve actually enjoyed walking, so I want to continue to make time to do it, even with the luxury of a car in the driveway. I am really grateful to my dad for getting my car sorted out. I haven’t been able to communicate effectively with mechanics.
I have a Fitbit and it’s great to have feedback about my physical activity. I have continued to increase my steps each week. I find feedback the key to improvement for me. I love the sleep information. It records how often you wake during the night and gives feedback on this and an overall sleep efficiency rate. So I am gathering some data on my sleep:). My friend Jen from Semantically Driven has a post here about her experience with Fitbit as well. Information is Power!
I’ve had some great wins with my passion project this week too. The Digital Shed project has become a finalist in the Learn Local Awards for Innovation in Digital Literacy, so I’m off to an awards night in the big smoke, late August. The best news for me came at a meeting with Federation Training. We have began our discussions regarding commencing a joint Community Based VCAL next year. This has been a goal of mine since the beginning. So thrilled about this and what it will mean for our local students as well as the VRI.
Lots of other great things have been happening but my alarm just went off so the bonus time I had now comes to an end:). Back soon I hope.
