# Math Monday

math monday

Today, I’ll keep the mathematics short. There are only a few numbers that matter right now and that’s:

• 2 hours till we catch the ship to Athens. Let’s get the vacation rolling. Berlin and Paris, just around the corner.

That’s pretty much all the math I can think of right now, apart from:

• 20 kg each is what we’re allowed to take on the trip. We’re sharing a small luggage and wonder if they’ll give us trouble (the airline is pretty strict). We don’t even have scales, so we’ve taken turns in lifting it and coming out with our very own humble estimations.
• 5 is the number of dresses I’m taking.
• 4 items left on my to-do list.
• 28 hours till take-off.
• 12 boxes packed as we prepare to move out of our beloved apartment.

Photo taken mid-week. The photo on the wall is now in a box somewhere too.

My week has definitely had more numbers than these, but forgive me. All I can think of is packing and the trip. So this banana is off for a week of holidays and a couple of reunions with good friends.

Hold tight — I’ll be back before you know it.

Oh and by the way, how was your week in numbers?

# Math Monday

The numbers came flowing in this week, mostly in the negative. I rummaged through my adolescent physics binder and came across this familiar formula:

disappointment + lack of motivation = major deflation

Any angst-ridden teenager is familiar with this bleak aspect of things, but let me tell you, at 25+1 major deflation sets in quite comfortably. But I’m going ahead of myself. It’s Monday so let’s get down to the Math, shall we?

• 137 is the number of photos I took this week.
• 12 (or thereabouts) is the number of photos that ended up being good (Sam, you’re not the only one!)
• 1 pair of new sandals this week! I simply fell in love. Don’t you just love them?
• There is a catch (or not a good catch, you could say)

• 0.5 pair is OK. The clasp on the one sandal doesn’t work properly and the shop refuses to change the shoes or the faulty clasp. Aaaarrrgghhh!
• 2 new books in the mail, both on nutrition. I am trying to take on a new eating lifestyle based on the food-combining diet. It makes sense and so far my stomach has calmed down. I’m a sensitive one.
• 15 days until Berlin and Paris! Woohoo!

Straight out of Beverly Hills, it seems

• 6 days until our friend George comes to visit from Cyprus. We only found out today, as this was a surprise we were meant to find out through snail mail. That card was never sent, so thank you MSN.
• 3 is the number of eggs I used in an attempt to make Eggs Benedict. Two worked out fine, but from the first one I only had the egg yolk left, which looked like babybel cheese by the time I was done. Great.
• Our brunch yesterday: toast, tomato, avocado and one of the successful poached eggs!

• 387.26 is how many Euros it would cost for me to be with my Mom and sister, who are having a wonderful reunion in Surrey right before graduation. I miss them so much, I actually checked for prices. Way over my non-existent budget.
• 1 present ready and sent to Estella, of Star of the East, for the swap she’s organizing on her blog. I love mail!

A special surprise

• 5 wasps located inside our balcony rail. How? Well part of it had rusted and so they sneaked in and were making a nest. Spotted them today and freaked out! I would have had a photo for this, if I weren’t too scared to go near the place.
• 10 bottle caps saved for a special project I’m working on. Soon to be revealed, hopefully.

I have this exact same door in a watercolor painting I bought 2 years ago. I wonder if it's from Chania originally.

• 1,853 words on the blog this week!

How was your week in numbers?
