Journal - October 1




I’m grateful for a happy start to a new month! My Instagram reached 3K followers today and I can’t quite believe it. I feel so thankful to have found something I enjoy doing which people seem to enjoy, too!


The start of the month seems to also have brought a sudden new chill. I went to bed wearing 3 layers – a t-shirt, thick cotton pyjamas AND a thick fluffy dressing gown. On top of that, I was buried under our down and feather duvet. I still woke up at 3 am freezing my butt off! And there was Piers, sleeping happily, topless.


I can’t keep up with daily pages anymore, not if I want to free up some time to work on monthly trackers and planners, and allow for unforeseen events. I will do a daily every 2 or 3 days now. But then I can’t call it a daily anymore, can I? What do I call it? A bidaily?


Tried a guided meditation on Daily Yoga. It was so bad! Like he was trying to sound soothing but it sounded like he was telling children a ghost story!

Meditation Zen

I’ve been tracking my meditation sessions on my Fitbit, which shows me my heart rate. This is what it usually looks like:

Today, it looks like this!

I mean, call me Guru Sheylara! Have I reached the first height of zen? Or, maybe, did I just fall asleep?



Today I’m grateful to the people who have made (spoiler free) elaborate character charts for Dark (Netflix) so I don’t have to. It makes watching this mind boggling series much easier!

Crabby apples

I seldom venture to the lower garden because it gets very wild there. So I was shocked to see that our crab apple tree has grown a million red fruits!
