« Part 666: Back to Work Part 667 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 668: Progress Report »

Yesterday I felt a bit under the weather. It was one of those days where I started out feeling kind of icky and it just never got any better.

I went through my regular morning routine and later in the afternoon helped a friend out with her computer, but after that I felt rather flat and decided to lay down a bit. I had a bad night previously and couldn’t tell if I was just tired or what was going on.

When I awoke I felt no better, and was just as tired, so I laid low for the evening and called it a night early. So much for my plans of cutting.

I didn’t feel up to doing anything that required any type of concentration at all. Running a scroll saw included. I think that sometimes we just need to know when to slow down.

But today (so far) I feel a bit better. It is kind of too early to tell. I am going to go slow and see what the day brings and try to get back on track. Since I don’t really have a fever or anything like that, perhaps it was just too much running and I only need to slow down a bit. We will see.

I am certain that I will be on the mend soon and back to my chipper self. I didn’t even really want to write about it today but I didn’t want people to worry when I didn’t post. I am going to see what the day brings and go from there. Who knows? Maybe I will accomplish something after all.

Have a wonderful Tuesday! :)

take it easy sheila

pace yourself

i’m still amazed at the speed
that paint dries
been watching it for 12 years
and it still wins

maybe you need more exercise
or some yoga

Get well soon, Sheila

Looks like Scroll Saw withdrawl symptoms to me, nurse.
20cc of sawdust, every 2 hours.

Thank you all! David – I will try that. I will probably be able to see how much dust has accumulated under the couch, though. Humm . . .

Martyn – I need to head to the post office and bank to transfer money to pay my taxes (perhaps that is what is ailing me!) Then I do plan to spend the afternoon cutting boots on the saw. I have some good music lined up for the task. I want to keep moving that pile.

I love the pictures!
