I have trouble keeping my focus on one, two, no three areas. Let me just admit it now, I am not good at multi-tasking. I think I've mentioned that before, though.
I have birdie back in school so I have A Lot more time to "do" stuff, but there always seems to be too much stuff to do. Thankfully I get the family laundry done and put away, and mostly keep the house picked up. So, why do I still feel so out of it? Maybe because I am at a loss without my baby bird in her nest...no, that can't be it. I cherish my alone time, sad but true! I so enjoy quiet, and when hubs is gone off to work and the bird is off at school, my house is totally quiet. No TV, no music playing, just quiet. Aahhhh! Does anyone else crave quiet like I do? (I know my dad does.) There is so much noise in the world today with TV, computers, and music. All great stuff, just so noisy. I even try to steal away into my "woman cave" (my craft room), but you can only shut out the noise so much. They need to do their "thing" when they get home, so I try to enjoy the quiet while they are away. There, I've said it out loud for the world to know...I am a home body like my bird and crave quiet...boring, I know. But that's me.
However, I have been busy, (in my attemp at multi-tasking) to get stuff ready for my booth. I start it September 1st, so I have been making and creating. Will definitely be posting pictures once I'm finished and the booth itself is ready. Really excited and feel so crafty, just wish I didn't have "chores" to keep calling me away from the fun/crafty work I need/want to do. Doesn't everyone feel that way about their hobbies/favorite past-times? But life must goes on...
I am trying to get caught up on things I didn't do this summer because I said to myself, "I'll do this and that once birdie is back in school". That time has arrived, now where do I begin. Like working out! I have been horrible at this task. I know how much I need to do it, I have just had NO desire and therefore I haven't worked out regularly...at all. Shame on me. But with the cooler weather approaching, I'll do more. At least that is what I'm telling myself. I have not been motivated at all this summer to workout, or do much of anything productive. I gotta snap out of my funk and get busy.
I leave you with a verse I just found:
"...it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." 1 Peter 3:4
I have a long way to go to get to the gentle and quiet spirit that is pleasing to the Lord. But I am a work in progress, but at least I'm trying.
For the next post, I will be writing about our recent trip to Glorieta for a family retreat. It was a fabulous experience...so hang on to your seats in anticipation!
Until Next Time,
