For all intents & purposes, we were out of the house yesterday for more than 12 hours (save for a 15-min wardrobe change after church) and the older I get, the more I find that taxing.
For this reason, spending the entire day at home today was most restorative. Here are…
- A lack of any schedule. Let me repeat… today’s first GoodThing was a lack of any semblance of a schedule. Things to do, but no place to go and nobody to see other than my own four favourite faces (5 if you count Pollux, our dog).
- I mentioned that I did have things to do – but they could be done at home. Today’s big job was to put together a video that Sophie did in preparation for the 2019 Cherish Conference in Saint John. She’s too old to attend, but Sis. Carter asked her to record some video footage talking about her experience of “Going… for God”. I’ll add a link after the conference is over…. for now, it’s still top secret! shhhhh! 🙂
- I finished another project (see below). This is the second “summer-of-2018” project that I’ve finished in the last couple of weeks. Any crafters out there will know that the #WorkInProgress basket has a nasty way of always looking you straight in the face – reminding you what procrastination looks like. This one’s just a simple cottage-style table mat that I improvised. It feels good to finish.
- Just for good measure… the FOURTH GoodThing today was just spending time together – all 5 of us (6 if you count Pollux) – in the evening, watching episodes of Dr. Who, projected on the wall. 🙂
