A weekend away on Menindee lake had me thinking about my capacity. What am I really capable of doing?. How much do I think I should work? How to balance time alone and time with family. Time to craft and create and blog, and time just to hang out. Taking life as it comes.
I decided on a softie project. I was going to call him "Fred". That was my nickname when I was a littlie. But at times you make mistakes, take too long doing it, get all cramped up, it really is hard on your neck. Well I have since pulled him apart and started again. You know what I thought, I really should be out there playing. Fred is now rising from the ashes again, slowly.
Balancing aspiration with desire. Being in the moment and planning for the future. Having home cooked meals, a clean smelling house, a well exercised body and mind, a happy family and a reliable income.
Grateful to be even able to have these choices. To ponder them.
Old Dan dog has been a sick boy. A few weeks ago I really thought he would be leaving us. He has pulled through, for now. Danny boy was so happy to be swimming again. I could see him smiling.
Thank goodness we have had family here the last week. Hanging out together. Sitting under the big open skies. Helping to balance my thoughts and mood. Love you guys.
How do you find balance in your life? And thank you so much for dropping by.
