The marathon was getting nearer and nearer which meant quite an easy run in the morning, followed by a massage (me at the receiving end!) and then some more massage (me at the giving end). I was quite tired, the driving exam adrenaline of the day before was still wearing me out. But I still met a friend in the evening whom I had not seen for a long time. Some nice Indian food and inspiring conversation. And she brought me a big jar of honey. I helped her with her MA thesis in May (language editing and translating the abstract) and when she asked me how much I wanted for it, I said that she could pay me in honey. She wasn’t the only one, I helped two more persons. Their honey had already been eaten a while ago… the thing with honey is that if we have it open at home, then one might as well consider it gone… we don’t usually buy any sweets and prefer fruit, especially dates. Honey is quite expensive and we tend to overeat it so we don’t buy it too often. It’s quite a blessing when someone gives us honey! Whenever I do someone a favour and they want to return it, I ask for honey. People have turned up with delicious jars of honey, straight from a local beekeeper! Honey, not money!
1. Own and live in a house.
Well, did some work but just a tiny bit. The massages I gave didn’t create any new turnover, prepaid gift cards.
2. Write AND publish a book.
Still too agitated and tired to write.
3. Win a major race.
Nice, easy run + receiving a massage. Really getting ready for the big race!

It had to be the delicious curry! There was also rice and some salad + mango lassi. We couldn’t finish the food so I took it home to my famished husband who appreciated it after a ling day of physical (massage) work.
