It has been the quietest day I can remember in a long time. My phone hasn’t even rung today, and I haven’t called anyone. I’ve even had very little email. I guess the whole world needed some down time.
I have barely left the house. I went to the garden to gather tomatoes and basil to make some soup for lunch and opened the front door to bring in some lumber I had left propped by it last night. I haven’t been any further than that.
There’s something quite lovely about being able to cocoon in my home, with no need to go out for any groceries or other supplies. I love it when I have everything I need at home. My mother always being prepared for almost any occasion – we did not go “to town” three miles away casually. I drive the few blocks to the grocery store at the slightest provocation. I think my mother probably had the better approach.
I had a really rough night last night so I needed a quiet day today.
This is going to be a busy week. I’m eager to be on the other side of it. I hate to wish time away, but I’m tired just thinking about all I have to do this week. But, I’m just going to improve my attitude and be thankful I’m able to do what I need to do and get it done.
I spent quite a bit of time in the studio today and got this basket out to see how it would work to hold journals at the show. I think it will work pretty well.
I have another half dozen journals in their final stages and another half dozen with one side done. They’re somewhat labor intensive, but whenever I carry one I never fail to get comments on it.
Well, I’m calling it a day and heading upstairs. I am not even going to walk into the studio because I’ll end up staying in there for 2-3 hours if I do. Hopefully I will actually get some rest tonight and wake up ready to meet this week head on.
