I am ashamed to admit that I haven’t done any crafting all week. Well, a little knitting at jury duty, but I am feeling like that doesn’t count. (Yes, I had jury duty. It was my first time. Luckily I didn’t get chosen to serve on the jury. I did love seeing how that whole process works though.)
I do this thing to myself where I start too many things at once, get overwhelmed, & just stop. Everything. It’s like I’m saying, “I will never finish it all, so why try.” Then after a while I realize that I really won’t finish anything by not doing anything. So, I start moving again. Today looks like a good day to start moving again.
My youngest son, had his first ice skating lesson today. He LOVED it! He couldn’t stop smiling & stepped off the ice with a look of pride, asking when he could do it again. His passion for things often feeds my own passion. He gets an idea that he wants to do something, & won’t back down until he’s had a chance to try it. It’s inspiring to see a 5-year-old so determined to do something.
I have to take a second to comment on the weather (I normally wouldn’t because it’s such an old lady thing to do but what the heck…). The ice & snow is melting, the sun is shining, my ears aren’t freezing off… what more could I ask for? While I was kid-free this afternoon, I attempted to clear the driveway of all the ice that has accumulated in the past few months. As I was standing at the huge ice dam at the end of my driveway, the plow guy drove by, stopped, backed up, asked if I wanted some help, & cleared a good 4 feet of ice away! I would have hugged him if I could have reached him! How nice! Thank you plow man! So since its so nice, I thought I would get the truck washed…. looks like everyone else in town had the same idea! I’ve been waiting in line for half an hour. Yawn. But at least I spent the time wisely, writing this enlightening post! 🙂 Yippee, its my turn!
