It is 11:43 PM and I am just beginning today's blog post. I spent most of today cutting and sewing a set of fleece hats for a show my troupe has coming up next week. Of ten hats I've completed five and hope to finish the rest tomorrow.
I began the day by giving myself an hour of reading time - non-school reading for a change and I did pause late afternoon to roast a chicken (with rice & onion stuffing), roasted veggies and gravy.
One lesson I took from this past weekend is how much I need to take time to do things for myself - like reading and cooking good food. And that I absolutely need time for silence and stillness. I made sure that I gave myself both of those things today.
Now I am tired, and a little wired due to the coffee I drank to keep awake to finish "just one more hat." I'm settling in to read and then to bed. I'm super sleepy.
Happy Holidays to all.
