Elections aside, it’s been an interesting week all things considered. I started out strongly, completely unmotivated but forcing myself to do stuff just by sheer will power. I finished a quilt and got a few other things ticked off my to-do-list. Tuesday I pottered along and then Tuesday afternoon we had a massive hail storm. Still managed to stay on task Wednesday despite excessive heat (and another big storm) and semi-finished another quilt which has been sitting in my cupboard for over 5 years because I wasn’t sure how to quilt it. Now the binding is on and ready to hand sew down at my sit and sew group on Saturday.
Today, woke up with a cracking headache and then spent way too much money buying new toner cartridges for my printer. It’s a good printer but getting to the stage where it would be cheaper to buy a new printer than buy toner which is not a good place to be, especially since I swore I was going to stay on budget this pay cycle. Other than that I am struggling to focus today even though the headache has started to clear up. But after a week of hot, we topped out at 37C today and my aircon is struggling to deal with the humidity so I am feeling hot and sticky. But I think most of my lack of productivity has been due to indecisiveness about what my next project is going to be. Do I start something new or finish something old? Do I want something by machine or by hand? Do I sew or read or work on the house? Do I try to learn a new skill or go with tried and tested? Unfortunately, there are no easy answers.
What I am finding is that I need to narrow the field a little. Plus, I think I need to decide my projects the night before and get everything set up and ready to go so in the morning I can just get up and get started.
