Actually, its been one of THOSE weekends. Too much going on. Too many needs to meet. Feeling pulled in too many directions and not really being "in the moment" enough to do any of them well. I guess April is one of those overwhelmed months anyway in my schedule but I just can't seem to conquer it today.
So in the midst of it all, I tried to get some perspective. I went outside with my clippers and smelled and picked the jasmine [which is completely in bloom and completely covering many of our fences] along with some herbs. Its my favorite kind of bouquet.
Then I spent some time looking at the teeny, weeny little pieces I have of my upcoming collection. More on that later.
Then I made my favorite iced tea in my favorite brand new mug [I am in love with the shape of that thing] and had a few chocolate covered espresso beans.
I think I might be feeling a bit better.
It helps that the house has been quite for a few hours for the first time in days. And that its beautiful outside. And that I spent a bit of time taking in all of this loveliness, here and here. Oh my goodness! Just beautiful and stunning and inspiring all at the same time! Part of me wants to do nothing but make red and white quilts now!!
Okay, I'm feeling better.
It sure would be great if I could just finish a couple of these project today. Crossing things off my giant TO DO LIST always makes me feel better. Wish me luck.
BTW, A giant THANK YOU to all of you who commented or emailed me advice about my new status as a mom of a teenager! You are all so sweet and helpful and I know that all I can do is take it one day at a time. Thank you!!
