Need time to sit and think

This weekend with the weird direction my mind was taking me, and the hectic pace of the weekend. I needed to calm down. I tried to just sit and think but for some reason my husband thinks it strange for me to sit without the TV or Radio playing. No nothing is wrong I just need to think. He felt it necessary to barrage with a lot of nonsense questions so I went into the bathroom. This is the most uncomfortable place to sit and think unless you are sitting in hot bubbly tub. I am 5’9” tall one day I will have a tub made to fit one of the tall basketball players so I can really know what it means relax and soak in a tub.

So I just go to lie in my bed so I can think. I fell asleep.

Sunday after going over my Auntie house to say good bye to a visiting cousin I finally sat down. I started crocheting my hat for the winter ….could not concentrate. I am crocheting in the round with a boucle yarn. For me the first few rounds take a little bit of concentration and then it’s all good.

Then I decided to draw my saffron flower.








I am not sure I this is the best I can do. Usually after drawing it a couple hundred times it begins to look the way I want it to. But I did this for my Needlepoint project.

I traced it on to the 14 count needlepoint canvas and I thought I had followed all the directions carefully unfortunately that was not the case. I did not leave 2 inches around the picture especially at the top.

You really can't see it that well because these pictures were taken with the cell phone.

So I will save this canvas for use on something else and then take the proper measurements and restart the project.

I just got another call from my cousin now her father has been moved to a hospice and is not expected to make it to the weekend. So the family is being called to rally round and support each other.

I guess I will have to sit and think someother time.

Wow! You have such talent! I can't wait to have a little more time to start crocheting again - I'm sure you will be an inspiration!

I understand that need to stop and think and falling asleep every time I try. :)

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…
Sew Perfect 4 Every Body Goals vs Dreams A conversation over Tea Hello , If you read this blog at all you know it has been almost a year since I have posted anything.
Like so many things with me a lot of unfinished objects...projects...business. I keep putting off the things in my life that I love .  I thought that i was trying hard to stop the trait but I
come to realize that is not so. I am my biggest obstacle. What is really bad is when I get the courage to
share something that i really want to do if that person makes the slightest  discouraging comment,
I am like what am i thinking. WHY DO I DO THAT! I am not really sure why that is.   Recently my husband had a problem with is knee it was swollen and painful.
 We go to the urgent care and then to the Emergency room next thing I know he is admitted to the hospital
and needs surgery to clean out an septic infection.  He would need to be 6 weeks off work.
He was top on my mind of course but the bills were like a animal crouching to …
