* Make stuff while watching TV

Winter! Home season! Same basic schedule for two seasons in a row! Calendar seasons I mean, not sport season. I mean, when I said home season I meant sport season.

Same three days WORK, same four days HOME with three cooking practices and one cleaning practice. Same six days PLAY; but I'm counting Sunday referees as a pro bono class and I have my Tuesday plyos class, that makes three personal clients and two group classes. Same four blocks of PASTIME, but fine tuned; what I want to do for pastime is write blog posts, watch movies and TV series, see people, and make stuff. I'm getting a good sense when I need to power down and just watch something, and when I've had enough of that and want to write stuff. I'm also getting good at switching between the serenity to stay in and the courage to go out.

I've been doing these charts for years, you know, and I do feel like I finally have a handle on work, home, and play. I'm going to set cleaning habits this year like I did my cooking habits last year, though. That leaves pastime to level up. It's not that I have pastime goals, that would be ridiculous. It's really that I want a pastime system per Egression #108. Which maybe is also ridiculous, but. I just want to get more out of my pastime. I don't want it to be more productive. Obviously the point of pastime isn't productivity, it's enjoyment. I want it to be more enjoyable. Sitting on the couch watching television has been my go to for downtime, but I can feel myself getting bored with it. The wrong thing would be to kneejerk Do Something and goodbye downtime, what I need is to think about something to do for downtime. Making stuff while watching television seems to fit the bill, for example, making stuff with my sewing machine doesn't fit the bill, mahhh setting up the machine, sitting at the table instead of on the couch like God intended for pastime, and generally too serious and goal-oriented. But hand sewing silly costumes for Odie is fun and sort of a puzzle without a predetermined solution. So stuff like that.
