Sometimes, there is a period of needful rest, boredom, and even perhaps loneliness which must often occur before one decides that “the things” that have been put off are better to do than to remain in this state, unproductive. Therefore, it is important that one get rested, bored, and tired of lonely, to the fill on occasion in order to ever reach those “XYZ” priority goals. I’m working hard at it. I am not there yet. But getting close.
Currently: I’m enjoying the exercise…and my hot cup of tea…and a little inspiration from Ali Edwards, whose scrapping style I adore. I’m not feeling so swell today, so the sitting and feeding my mind is a welcome distraction.
Yup, I’m starting to think about painting the mud roomm and doing some needed touch up and drywall repair. The thought has entered my mind. But, as I said, I’m not quite there yet. The thought of Christmas approaching and my not being pulled together for the holidays IS a motivating factor. Indeed. I remember it here and there.
And then go back to enjoying the beginnings of crisp days of fall, light button ups, and hot tea. My porch swing is sounding appealing, with a quilt. Mmmm. Just as soon as I finish my albums.
Oh, I hope to get caught up on their memory albums this fall before other activities pull too hard at me! I’m working hard at it! I have done Red’s preschool and 1st grade, Boy Wonders 5th (and I’m not sure what of his early years are mixed in his regular albums…I may need to pull those out), and Godlilocks K and 4th grade years. Still. Much. To. Do.
I really have a heart’s desire to get this project done so we can enjoy them. Photos on the computer don’t really do any good, and I love the history of those moments. To celebrate life is an important discipline for me in the midst of the mundane. It feeds me and them.
What are you doing that feeds you right now? What inspirations has God laid on your heart? Where are you growing…as a person, and in delight? Are you delighting in the everyday? How so?
