I’m pretty sure I’ve never spent this much “quality time” inside my house. Ever. And it’s almost impossible not to see all the half-finished, and some not even started, projects I’ve been meaning to do -once I had some extra time. But it’s so hard to focus! I’ve made progress on some work projects and a little less progress on some personal projects, and I can tell you so much more about how the State of Ohio works thanks to the Governor’s daily briefings. And you know what? I’m going to say it’s okay if I don’t wind up with queen-sized quilt that I made from fabric scraps I found in my crafting stash, or fluent in Italian, or knowing how to juggle! Of course, if I *do* learn some cool new skill… that’s okay too! (I’m looking at you pickled carrots, and you too watercolors!)
While I paint my soothing watercolors or pickle those carrots (once I get all the ingredients), I’ll be listening to some old-school, Newbery Award winning books like: The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George or Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan. Or maybe I’ll hang our with Claire while she Gourmet Makes some high-end Reese’s Cups (while I snack on my Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs -heh!)
Whatever you wind up doing this week? (Or not doing this week?) Be kind to yourself -things are tough and you can only do what you can do, okay?
