I have the next 4 days off from work once I complete today’s work day. I have so many things I want to do and I think there is time to do all of them. I want to keep busy enough to keep my mind focused on the project and me focused on the right here and right now. I don’t want to be moving at 100 miles an hour doing things for the sake of doing them. I don’t want to be in a stressed out frenzy. It seems that with the pandemic going on and the political unrest leading up to the Inauguration of the new President , I have nothing but time at home to fill. I have been filling it with the 24 hour news cycle and I need to turn it off. The time to be totally creative is an exciting possibility. A perfect time to work on mindfulness and grounding myself in the creative process.
I have taken a couple of classes from Michael’s and I want to do the projects this weekend. I have quilts to quilt and tops to sew. I have a new quilt to start with the fabric already selected. I have a house to clean and tidy. I have workouts to do. I have football to watch. I have a knitting loom to try. I have washcloths to knit. I have hand sewing to do. I have plenty of things going on.
I have life to live here at home even though we aren’t going places, doing things or interacting face to face. Its been 10 months of living at home, working from home, mostly shopping from home, Zoom and social distancing. I hope that changes in the upcoming year. I got my Covid vaccine on Wednesday. I was tired after it for a day and I feel better today. It’s given me a glimmer of hope that maybe life will have some things slowly getting back to a pre-pandemic life. The restaurants and bars may open here in Feb. Maybe we can have some limited gatherings with food and a drink. I want to go to a museum. Maybe quilt group can meet or some other creative group in town. I need to join something with a creative function. That should be today’s research.
Happy Friday all!
