So I was sitting in the garden trying to sift through the warring images up there in the head when a friend arrived, and asked if the kettle was on. Perfect. So we sat in the garden in the sun, on those nice new chairs, and chatted the afternoon away with tea and coffee at hand. Just what I needed to do. The timing could not have been better. And there was laughter too.
Life is like a jigsaw puzzle, and sometimes it is so hard to see how the pieces can all fit together. Neatly. Correctly. Especially when the pieces are people, and lives and responsibilities. I have come to realise that I really can't do it all. I can't actually do much, if I am honest. Not now. The spirit is willing, but even the spirit gets weary at times. But then, maybe I am trying to make a picture I can see and want, instead of letting the pieces fall where they are meant to go according to a picture I am not privy to yet. Maybe I am trying to play God here. Trying to make life fit MY way. Bigger sigh. You just had a glimpse of the warring mind. Enough.
The sun has shone all day, and it has been warm and beautiful out there in the garden. Everything is springing to life, and the colours are so lovely. The squirrels are not lovely. They have started digging up all my pots and seedlings again, and I have tried to net most of the garden. The washing dried in the sun today, and it smells of the outdoors. Beautiful. No sign of the mouse/mice today. I have also crocheted enough stars to decorate the heavens. And there are chocolate biscuits in the house.
And the quilt is finished.
It is big. Queen-size. 5ft 6" bed size. The most important part is that David loves it. So that is good.
Now it is time for the couch, and some tv or maybe my book. Bookclub is here on Monday and I have yet to get the books. Never mind read them. Oh well.
I hope you are all having a lovely peaceful weekend!
