I am in a funk and definitely not good company today. I wonder if I have any chocolate....hang on, I bought some for Christmas presents. That will do. The person destined to receive the box can have something else. I can make something. Biscuits. That will do. Now where did I hide them........
I am not going to talk about why I am in a funk. All I am going to say is that I am very tired of a whole lot of things, and that it has to do with human nature. This is turning out to be what I suppose could be one of the lower points in my life, if I get to look back over the whole thing one day. A dip. One where I have learned many lessons, battled to stay positive (thank you, God, for instilling a spirit of thankfulness in me - it is keeping me sane) and ate a lot of chocolate. Not to mention a time when I drank a lot of coffee.
It could be worse, of course.
So I am heading back to something I know, trust and understand, my sewing machine. And I am going to sand the wooden things I cut on the scroll saw. And I may crochet something. Or I may just finish that prayer shawl I started in the summer. David is cooking tonight, and I could not be more thrilled that I do not have to conjure up something myself. The Autumn quilt is finally finished. I will take some photos tomorrow.
Day 9: I am so thankful for these four walls, which are a haven, a shelter and somewhere I can just relax and do what I love doing, with the people I love being around. My family. My home.
