It’s already a beautiful day today. The sun has fully risen and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. It is cool out and calm, and the leaves are turning their final shades of amber before falling. How nice.
I am running behind a bit today, so I will keep this brief. (I know – I always say that!) I have been fighting a bit of a cold and I am hoping that it won’t get hold of me. I haven’t been sick in quite a while and I am hoping that I can battle this without it getting too bad.
Yesterday I did finish my project to send for the magazine. That was a good accomplishment. I want to show it here, but I think I will wait for the magazine to present it first this time. While I know they don’t mind me showing previews here, I think they would like to have the first presentation sometimes. And that is fine.
Today I need to button up the instructions for this project and send it on its way tomorrow. Then I need to head in a couple of directions. So much to do!
I hope it doesn’t seem like I am complaining about having lots to do. I really don’t intend it to be that way. I suppose if I had a complaint, it would only be that I wish there were more ways to squeeze more hours out of a day than I do. There are so many wonderful avenues of creativity to explore, there are times when I just don’t know what to do first. I think that is a good problem to have. The word ‘bored’ never enters my mind.
Feeling this cold coming on is tough on me. I want to ignore it and keep going full steam, but as I do so, I feel it creeping up on me. Yesterday I took a nap for an hour in the afternoon. I was afraid that I wouldn’t sleep in the evening, but it seemed that I had no problem at all. I actually awoke a bit later than usual this morning (almost 7) and the sun was already peeking over the horizon.
Normally I would be a bit angry at myself for sleeping in. But I found that sometimes we just have to take some extra care and be sensible about things if we at all can. So I will slow down the pace for a day or two and drink lots of tea and see if that helps. Maybe another nap, too. Perhaps I can dodge a major hit after all.
I wish you all a wonderful day today. It’s Thursday already and the weekend is right around the corner. Enjoy the day! :)
