« Part 565: It Finally Got Me Part 566 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 567: On the Road to Recovery »

I slept eleven hours last night. That was besides the two hour nap that I took yesterday afternoon. I think my body is trying to tell me something.

I don’t feel all that bad. I am just (still) tired and feel like I can sleep more. My head is stuffy though and I have to take stuff for that.

I plan on doing some drawing today though so I can get back on track and at least push the pile a little bit forward. I will be happy if I can see some progress anyway.

So I just thought I would write a short note here so no one worries. It’s just one of those things and at least I did sleep a lot last night. I hope to be through with this in a few days.

I hope you all have a good and productive day today.

Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen. -Leonardo da Vinci

Sheila,

Love the quote – just make sure you don’t go SO far from your work that you can easily come back to it. That’s what makes a messy shop full of half-finished projects. Trust me! ;-)

Get some rest!

Thanks, Bob:
Just taking a step back for a little. I am still going to try to do some drawing today on some new stuff. I miss cutting. It seems like forever since I have been at the saw. It is so unlike me to sleep so much but one thing good about having cats is there is always one willing to be your ‘snooze buddy’ and curl up with you. How relaxing that is!

Take care and have a great day! Sheila

One thing for sure, those cats are the perfect masters of the snooze, Barnaby can sprawl out anywhere
(preferably in your path so you have to stop and pet him) and take a snooze forever and then suddenly
jump up an tear around the house and up and down the stairs and outside to prove that he was just
resting from all the work he did when you were not looking. Sounds like your body is just telling you it
needs some time to recuperate from something, it is usually better to let yourself get over the bug
instead of pushing your body to work and dragging the bug out for several weeks. Hope you are over
this bug soon and back to having fun in the shop.

Get well soon Sheila ! You must need the rest so don’t fight it , if you need a nap take it and get well. If you don’t post we will know were you are and we will have to deal with it . It could be a hard job for some us and we would proably fall into a trance But it will end when you are back take care
