Trapped at home again because clutch leg is infirm. Kate called and caught me mid tears. She cheered me greatly and then the “shame” started. I am really just fine, just frustrated and tired of not being able to do what I want/need to do. SO . . . . . . . .
I decided to concentrate on the good things that have happened to me.
Jean fixed my computer. Chris came by to chat. Martha brought me a casserole. Katherine is taking me to lunch tomorrow. Cat is coming for beer tomorrow night. Some folks on flickr liked my drawings. A little girl and her mom stopped by while I was drawing outside(see above), and I got to encourage Evie to go home and paint paper. The rain fairies have taken care of the yard for me.
Life is good.
Paul is in Chile now and Erica and Z will fly down in a few weeks. After some nightmare nursing home adventures, Edna is now in a place that seems to be good for her. Meghan’s having an attic sale this weekend and I will go help her and enjoy the event.
I’ve been drawing some and planning lots of projects that I will never get around to doing. I miss my Wednesday knit group, but should get back to it soon. I’m working on my Viajante which is lots of knitting in the round. Very relaxing.
I started my Halloween decorations. I made this mini-mummy I saw on Pinterest. You just shape a body with a head on four limbs out of soft wire (I used the spiral binding from a notebook that I took apart) and then wrap it with fabric strips. I recycled the clean part of my surgical dressing and used that. Love to recycle. I need to glue some eyes on it. Great project to do with grandkids.
Spend some time today listing the good things that have happened to you lately. It will lift your spirits.
