I have not been feeling the best. Kind of down and tired. I seem to have little cycles like that. I used to ignore them and just force myself to keep going, but as I am getting older I am starting to give in and take a break. I have not been doing a lot the last few days. I have spent time in the garden---still clearing out debris. This usually takes some time each spring because I leave most if it in the fall for the animals. I feel the trade off of shelter and seed heads for food is worth the extra work in the spring. I have also been working on a painting for my cousin- you can see it here. It is in it's beginning stages- which I call the ugly stage. Right now I hate it and I usually have to force myself to keep working on it and not just toss it in the trash. Most times I get past this and can turn out a decent painting that I like. I have also been working on a table runner that is part of a present for a friend's wedding this summer. I am not happy with the way this is turning out- but that could just be because I am not so great at sewing and I was raised by a seamstress so my standards of sewing are set pretty high. My Mom is excellent at sewing. I have never paid for a comforter in my life- and I doubt I ever will. I cannot sew a comforter from scratch by myself, but I have become pretty darn good at sewing new duvet covers to go over old comforters when I get tired of them. Anyhow- the sun is shining today and I am hoping that I will start to feel my energy and enthusiasm return and not feel so blessed tired. Sunshine is like magic medicine sometimes, isn't it?
