Good morning world. It is Saturday. Have I ever mentioned just how much I love Saturdays? There is something special about them. Saturday mornings are full of promise. There is the knowledge that you don’t have to go to work (well not if you work a regular Monday – Friday job) and your mind is in a relaxed state. As I sit here at my computer, the fresh morning air is caressing my face through the open window beside me. I am being serenaded by the sounds of running water in the water feature and young Rainbow Lorikeets sqwarking in the Grevillea bush. The sky is showing brilliant blue through the lace curtains and all is peaceful in my world. The Tween and the Garden Gnome are still sleeping. The Diva has abandoned me to find somewhere comfortable to curl up and I am breathing! That is always a blessing! 🙂 I am a little ‘dull-headed’ due to the consumption of a couple of extra glasses of wine at my work Christmas party last night. I still remember everything about the night but I definitely became more relaxed as the night went on. I had a wonderful conversation with an ex-colleague that has provided me with some fodder for future blog posts. And I told a few people that I loved them. I think it was at this point that the Tween called her father to come and get us. 🙂
So this morning I intended to catch up on the past two days of posts from my fellow bloggers. I sat at my computer with the best of intentions. However I have decided to do some more work on my quilt and finish putting all of my Christmas decorations out instead. It’s not that I don’t love you all (because I do and I learn so much from what you write), however I have almost 200 posts to work through and I find it a little overwhelming right now. Whilst writing this post, I have been constantly distracted by thoughts. I have gone and re-read the opening chapter of the book I am writing and the book proposal I have submitted to the publisher. This has provided me with food for thought and fodder for upcoming blog posts. I need some time to plan these in my head and then write them. Since, I am feeling overwhelmed, I think doing something distracting such as piecing fabric together or putting my Christmas display together would be beneficial.
I know I seem so calm at times but right now I’m not feeling it. I don’t understand where this feeling of being overwhelmed has come from. I am happy. I am blessed. I think my mind just likes playing games. I really should bring it to heel and teach it who’s boss. But instead I come to my blog and write. Because when I write, it helps me make sense of all that is going on.
Well my stomach is growling so I guess that it is a sign to step away from the computer. 🙂 I’ll be back later this afternoon more than likely. And I promise to take photos of my quilt in progress…
Have a blessed day. And thanks for allowing me to ramble.
