Tuesday Talk: Self Care Sessions Vol. 40

My office went on vacation starting June 28th, so I’ve been relaxing as much as possible.

Unlike past stayactions, I’ve been doing a lot with my free time. It’s not even a full week into the vacation and I’ve done more in 6 days than I do in a month. I feel proud of myself!

Here is my self-care for the week:

1) As I mentioned in my previous post, I went to the ballet! I saw “Whipped Cream” on Friday night, and last night I saw “Tchaikovsky Spectacular”.

I’ve become a huge fan of the ballet. I’m going to attend more often from now on.

2) I treated myself to chicken bites and fries.

3) I am continuing to do the body scan technique.

4) This is not strictly self-care, but when my expensive Catherine Zoraida earrings got tarnished, I panicked because I thought I’d have to pay a professional jeweler to restore them. A friend tipped me off about Connoisseurs polishing cloth. I bought the all purpose version and voilà! My earrings are like new again! I’m putting this story here because it’s now one less distressing thing in my life. I really thought I was going to pay through the nose to have a jeweler improve them.

5) I treated myself to some new A England polishes! I wanted St. George for ages, and I grabbed a few others that looked pretty.

What was your self-care this past week?

  1. Sounds like you’ve been keeping busy. I can’t wait to see swatches of the new polishes. I’ve had my eye on a few myself.

  2. I went to see Wonderwoman with Mr. Loca and had burgers and fries before that. The burgers wer worth it, the movie not.
