The joy of ordinary days.....
Staying at home today, I got to putter around in my own world
Nothing magic to report.... Beautiful weather in the morning... oppressive cold gray rain in the afternoon and evening. I had an agenda - as usual...
a list to follow [or NOT follow - as is often the case]
I am building a life.... trying to live my days the way I want my life to go
I take walks and enjoy my surroundings....
handle my household chores.... [always a challenge to stay focused!]
got the tree finished :-)
..and try to keep my own emotional self in hand while those in my house swirl in their own turmoil.
My intent is to be sympathetic.. to help where I can... but NOT to let their mental state drive me to the same location!
Isn't that always the challenge? To keep your own self above water?
And I did . Life is good.
For me, it's the small things.
Getting the sheets changes - is there anything nicer than fresh sheets when you get into bed at night?
A crockpot of food for tomorrow (I will be running around during the day)
a couple of quilt blocks pieced for a class that I am behind in...
just a day of lovely catching up in my own space.
and a new project to dream over..
I took pictures of some of the ornaments as I finished the tree.... these particular ornaments have stories and I will write them. [of course, at this point, I sort of regret giving all the kids' childhood ornaments back to them as they moved out because I probably should have written the stories first.. BUT... time will tell of the importance or not :-)] Anyway - I have some to play with - and thinking about it made me smile.
It was a good day for me.....
How was your day?
