Reality versus imagination


Its one of those weekends where I feel like I haven’t done enough, but when I actually look at what I got through I did a fair bit. Mowed the lawns, pulled an awful lot of weeds, cooked lots and finished my secret santa for my quilting group. There are however a few things that I didn’t get round to doing but I wanted to, and they seem to be the same things I was putting off last weekend. It’s not that I don’t want to do them, and I quite enjoy them once I get started. It’s just the getting started that’s the problem, and the fact my mind tends to focus on the things left undone.

Off to get myself some dinner now, and hope the storm outside settles down a little. I never used to mind them until I started living in a house with a tin roof and you have that moment when it thunders and the house shakes. It hasn’t fallen down yet though and I reckon in 50 years it must have seen its fair share of storms.



As usual I have been slack in blogging. But…now uni is over, for a while at least, I have more time on my hands and a to do list so long it is unbelievable. The trick is deciding what to do first and then finding the energy to do it. I am not encouraged in my efforts by the weather – we hit 39 C yesterday and this morning, while it is not so hot, it is incredibly humid and very dark out – stormy looking. Like it is about to rain any minute. All of which adds to the temptation to spend the day on the couch watching cooking shows.

However, progress is being made. My house got cleaned this morning and the work clothes are washed for next week. I cut out a bag to make yesterday and I moved my sewing machine to the dining table so I can sew while it is hot (and while I am watching tv). So things will start happening eventually, I just need to relax and go with the flow for now.

Maybe a nap first though. I think when it is the perfect day for a nap you should take full advantage.
