HOW THE MIND DOTH WORK!!!
This morning I just did not feel right, not myself, not rested, not ready to go with my plans for the day. So my thought was to not sew today as I am sewing a little more difficult item and want to take it slow and do it well. So the sewing was going to sit today as I was not feeling just right. Instead I headed outside in the heat and humidity to do the much needed weeding of my cactus garden. It is not a large large area but large enough that it took me one and a half hours. It has yucca and prickly pair and also some sedums at each end and a little evergreen at one end. Such a pretty garden, with bird baths and some wine bottles on a tree my husband made for me.
It was hard work and I had four large buckets of grass and weeds. All the weeding made my hands sore, but I will sew tomorrow I told myself. The buckets of weeds were hauled away and the hoe put up. I washed off my gloves and shoes. Looking back at my garden, it was a "sticky" job but now it was looking really "sharp" again. I know that is a funny pun, but I could not resist.
Now looking back at this mornings thoughts about how I was feeling, my conclusion is that I was not feeling good because I was not thinking right. Why would this person who has asthma and was told to not work too long outdoors in the humidity and heat, do this. Maybe because I like how "sharp" it looks again. Maybe because I just needed to be outside. And, actually with my sore hands, I was still able to do some baking, knit a little and embroider a little. So it did turn out to be a good day.
