I did too many things for too many days in a row. I’m now in the middle of several days with nothing planned and only rest. Sometimes I forget that all little activities add up. Going to my moms to hang out for a couple hours is the same as a workout to others. Even just getting ready and meeting someone in a parking lot to buy or sell something is too much if I pair it with another activity, or two in a day.
I remember that now. My muscles, joints, and bones hurt. My brain has been fatigued. My whole body has been extremely exhausted. Therefore, resting is now what I’m scheduling. I need to be more careful about my scheduling activities. I think I got a good reminder this last week.
I am working on a fun project in my house and I’m super close to being done with it. When I am, you know I’ll take a bunch of pictures and show y’all. That’s my favorite part of finishing a project.
I have been spending time reading quite a bit lately. I got hooked on the Diana Gabaldon Outlander series. I finished the first book and I have just started the second. I’ve also done a little painting and some cross stitch. My quilt top is over half-way done so that is progress at least. I hope it’ll be completely done by Fall when it’s chilly.
We’ve had a little bit of sun and I put my hammock out. It is just as lovely as I remembered from last Summer.
On Saturday I had three events (which was much too much). I did my hair and makeup though so I thought I better share.
This next picture is a much more accurate depiction of what I have looked like since Saturday and what I plan to look like for the rest of this week until my next doctor’s appointment on Thursday.
What are all of you doing? Keeping busy? Relaxing a bit? Hopefully no matter what you are smiling. Hopefully I’ll be able to share my project soon!
