A couple of months ago I changed from working full time to having Wednesdays off. Oh, I love it! In preparation for all of the extra time I would have, I bought canvasses to paint, fabrics to sew, and glass to mould in my kiln. I had dreams of spending the day taking photos, having a tidy and calm house, and feeling refreshed for the rest of the week. The projects I had in mind, oh the projects! Did I mention my vegie patch? And the exercise, all the exercise I was going to get. The possibilities…
Well, I still adore Wednesday. Love it, LOVE it.
I do vaguely clean the house and do the washing (must go and put another load in right now). And I do re-establish a sense of calm and order to our home and family. I generally get dinner organised early, and make a nice after school snack for the kids.
I try to work on my blog, and research ways of taking it further, as well as continuing my ongoing research into dyslexia and dyscalculia for our Max.
I even bought some great exercise gear from Geometry Active Wear (it is brilliant – really holds everything in!).
BUT…I haven’t taken any photos for ages, my fabric is untouched (and I have some great orange fabric for cushions in there!), my glass has not been taken out of the box, my kiln is cold, and my canvass is still stashed behind the chair in my bedroom. Vegie patch? Non-existent.
And today Arch is sick, so no school for him. Instead I am sharing my day off with him, and taking him to the Doctor.
But I am patient. I know my time will come. And when that time does come, I will be ready!
