I Needed That
Well, it felt good to sit down this morning and click that New Post button. That was a long break. I'm betting, by far the longest I've ever taken. I enjoyed every moment. There may be more of that in my future. I got several emails and comments from readers wanting to know if I was okay. I was better than okay! I found myself unplugging from technology for the last month and plugging into life. It's been wonderful. I want more!
Since we last met, our home became waterfront property for a day during the floods, I had a bad bout of the flu, traveled to Virginia, read a whole book, booked our summer vacation, paid off a large debt, welcomed spring, bought a spur of the moment but necessary car, drank several margaritas, filled trash can after trash can with weeds and debris from my yard, made curtains for the studio, spent lots of time with friends and have made walking part of my regular routine. That was a wise way to spend a month, wouldn't you say?
Right now I'm in a nesting mood and feel a deep urge to go one room at a time, cleaning and organizing from top to bottom. Last night I had a dream that I filled my car with stuff from the house and drove it to a donation center. It was a very satisfying dream. If I disappear again, know that I'm here washing windows and alphabetizing my spices. And know that I am well. I am just feeling an urge to keep my world small right now and to not let the demands of life overwhelm me any more than I have to. Also know I do miss this little space and all of you too and I've no intention of giving up blogging.
So that's what I've been up to. What have you been up to? I'd love to hear!
