DownTime


Today has been quiet, apart from making some cards, of the greetings card variety, from small paintings. Sometimes it's a good thing to just do nothing, or not a great deal, anyway. Other than think. Had I had good in my heart, I'd have ironed also, but... though I might do so this evening while watching House, one of the few series I actually watch on television.

I had intended to work on the quilt I was working on yesterday, but I still don't think it's up to much, and besides, Advo was sound asleep on it when I went to mix the paint, so that was left to one side. I posted a couple of parcels, chatted to some friends on line, and played Solitaire on the computer, how sad is that! And now it's teatime. What I have done, though, is to remember a couple of projects that I have been putting to one side; so at least I know what I'm doing next week!

And, of course, in a couple of weeks I'll be gazing at the view from the shudio window, and possibly even painting en plein air! Now won't that be interesting?

You must know how happy I am to see someone else whose decision making strategies can include and consider the coordinates of a furry feline family member. Your day sounds quite productive and so very fine. Advances come in many styles, don't they? Mostly in retrospect, I find. Thank you for sharing. ox

Thanks for the reminder that it is OK to do nothing much, I really needed that one today.

We need those solitaire-stare-at-the-sky times to regroup and gather strength and ideas. You are so remarkably productive, it warms my heart to hear that you do pause from time to time!

Sometimes quiet days are good. I need them so I can let myself catch up with the other bit of me that went streaking ahead at 100mph. Your studio looks like it will be fab!
