You know what I did this afternoon? I dead-headed the garden. Then I did a Sudoku in the bath. And tomorrow I might even make a cup of tea and *gasp* read a magazine.
I’ve been on such a crazy schedule for so long, I didn’t feel like I could ever take a break. Catch my breath. Stake the new veggies out the back. Re-pot cuttings. Find cuttings! Walk! I haven’t been on a walk for the sake of a walk for weeks! I’ve crocheted my fingers into gnarly stubs. And all I’ve wanted was the chance to sit still for a minute and do a puzzle. Contemplate the garden. Smell the roses. Which, for the record, have come and gone while I’ve been beavering away inside.
Back to the magazines. I’m a great gatherer and hoarder of beautiful design/interior/lifestyle magazines. My favourites are stacked up in piles all over the house.
One in particular is Inside Out. I’ve been a fan since it’s first anniversary issue when my guy brought a copy home one day thinking it looked like something I’d like. I’ve still go it. And it’s a dream come true to see Crayon Chick in this current issue! I’m pretty chuffed with myself!
And tomorrow I might even find that moment to sit and read it. Bliss.
