Don’t worry, I haven’t gone anywhere… I’ve just been working on other things.
Actually I was in a bit of a funk last week. Even hubby noticed it. I didn’t even manage to make decent dinners. Usually I can at least do that. But my energy and attention went… somewhere else…
But now it’s back! I’m back to veggie stir frying. I’m writing – I have a couple of long posts coming soon, once I figure out how to split my quilting story into manageable chunks. I’m getting stuff done, finished, clearing out the stagnant projects, almost in time for the new lunar year!
Yesterday I had some time before the bus came to take me home. I was tempted to wander the aisles of Value Village, but there is nothing I really need (actually I found a great coat and dress there the other day!) And the lure of the road not-yet-walked called to me… so I took it. I wandered for half an hour in the piercing sunlight, admiring funny little houses built in the 50s, flat empty lawns, strangely quiet streets and some surprisingly lovely trees.
I recharged myself instead of losing myself to mindless time-killing.
I highly recommend it – walking down a road simply because you haven’t walked it before. You don’t have to go far. You’ll open up a different perspective. And a little sun in the eyes and air in the lungs will do you a world of good.
And when you’re done with the roads, try the alleys behind them. See another side of things.
