I've got a serious case of the do-nothin's!
Do you ever get them? It's not the blues exactly. It's not that I'm all that tired or frustrated or mad or lazy. I just don't feel like doing ANYthing!! Do you ever get afflicted with the malady? Maybe it's hormonal....It does seem to come around with some regularity. Yuck.
I've had them for two or three days now. I sit at the computer and read...following along with tears (like Teresa's mishap with her All Around Town quilt top) and with triumphs (like Thelma's Quilter's Tale) and wondering at the creativity and beauty of other people's projects! I wanna do something fabulous like that!
Sam has a UK Wildcats print picked out for the backing. This is one he's wanted for a while. You can tell by the wrinkles and fold lines that it's been in the closet for too long.
I just don't wanna sew today.
Or do the bills.
Or do my taxes.
Or do my laundry.
Or load the dishwasher.
Or take the boys anywhere.
I wanna sit and think or dream or leaf through magazines and blogs. I wanna play Spider Solitaire and eat the Turtles in the lovely pink and brown box that Emily bought me for Valentine's Day (not promising for this week's weight loss...)
I was reading in Ecclesiastes today. "To everything there is a season..." So true! Today is NOT my season for productivity! :-) The Psalmist writes, "Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you." (Psalm 116:7)
So today is a mental health day. A day of rest. A day to remember how good I've got it! Lord willing, tomorrow and all the days that follow will have sufficient work and inspiration to keep me busy. I'll be sewing again shortly....I get a little crazy if I go too long without touching my fabrics, making something.
Who knows! With a little soul rest, I might even tackle the taxes!!
.... Um...No. Let's not go so far as all that, OK!?
