Wow - it's amazing how the simple act of making something can be so rejuvenating.
I moped around the apartment all weekend, did a little knitting, but mostly blew off the stuff I had planned to do. Was it the weather? My mood? Who knows?
I finally got my shit together to mail my brother's now-belated birthday present and after I wrapped it I decided to decorate the wrapping paper since plain blue tissue paper was really not special enough for a belated handmade birthday gift. So I got out my glue stick, scissors, and a pack of origami paper that I picked up ages ago, and made a flying kite design on the package.
That was it, that was all I did.
But suddenly, I felt the urge to DO STUFF!
I knit a few more rows, I went to the wine store, I changed the ink in my printer and finally printed a bunch of stuff I've been meaning to print, I made salmon and quinoa and a salad so I have food for a couple of days....
Wow. I caught myself and tried to figure out where this sudden burst of energy had come from, and I realized that I hadn't done a single productive thing all day until I sat down to do my little art project. Afterwards I just felt so focused and organized....... I obviously need to do more things like this first thing in the morning!
