Idling away the day, sketching
I see my lifeline as a circle or spiral that is ever expanding and ever reshrinking. There are days and occasionally weeks when my energy seems to grow and times like now when i seem to be withering under a foggy fatigue--all things that happen when one is dealing with a variety of autoimmune conditions its resulting effects. Acceptance along with a bit of stubborness and fight are helpful. We have been so busy lately that finally this week, I decided a slow down was needed. I called in a cleaning lady yesterday, I'm fixing simple meals and leftovers and I'm keeping my days easy. After a small errand today (picking up perle cottons to match my latest fiber work), i lolled over lunch and afterwards tea. I ventured outside to water a few plants and clip a few spent flowers. I've noticed that I'm attracted to dried shriveled flowers and wildflowers as well as seed heads. I took the tansy collected last week and added some pearly everlasting.
