A little while ago, I was thinking that I’ve been feeling and doing quite well. I haven’t had my usual miseries of sinus problems, aches and pains and the blues for a long time. Be careful of what you think! Lo and behold, my said maladies paid me a visit. Maybe it’s not my thoughts that brought them forth. Rather, I was receiving advance warnings of their imminence. I like to think it was that.

It’s so cloudy today and oh my gosh, I’m so tired! Complaining again. It makes me feel better just to let it all out. It’s only here, in my own space. Who else would give a care? I’m sure they’re probably feeling the same. It serves me right taking 2 weeks off, sitting on duff – well, not entirely the whole time. Sheba and I still had our daily walks. Goes to show a daily walk with the dog is not much exercise even in freezing rain. It’s good we’ve gone and come. I’m warming up with my tea. She’s laid out on her bed quiet as can be. Shhh!

I’m trying to organize my thoughts. I didn’t think  a swim on Sunday and an hour of aerobics yesterday would cause me such fatigue. But it has. The clouds adds to it. But that is my life, like it or not. I’m trying to make it work better. How can I make my life smoother and more productive with my energy level? I’m listening to some of my own ideas. Re-scheduling activities to different time slots and see how that works. Someone wrote a post on recyling old content for a fresh and new article. I could use the idea for other things besides writing.

Day 7 – Feeling some purple and red and off colour anger. Unable to make a picture today

Daisy Yellow has pointers on the 365 Something Projects. I am on my Day 8 of the project. Doing something creative every day does lead to more creativity. Things get easier and flow starts. I will have to apply that ‘do something every day’ to organizing my desk, the dining table where I do my 365 Somethings Project, my painting studio, my sewing space – in other words, the whole house! Maybe I could chart my progress here. That would make me accountable. I shall do it! I am already trying to pick up and put away as I go along today. Does that get points for me?

  1. I pray that your pain eases for you. Keeping your mind off it does creative things does help and makes us want to be even more creative. many blessings

  2. I agree you need to keep moving when the aches and pains start! To keep motivated sometimes feels like a full time job. I haven’t had yoga for two weeks and I am paying for it with shoulder pain, and sluggish feelings, tomorrow can’t come soon enough!!! But you did give me and Murray some lovely evening reading, your sense of humour is right up our alley😂

    1. Thank you, Terry! Humour is a must in our crazy weather patterns. It’s turned cold again but I’m feeling better. Still hearing Electric Avenue in my head from the step class this morning.


  3. I hope that you feel better soon and I agree that doing creative projects can be a good distraction. Also a year-long project is a good way to stay focused on the project that you want to complete.

    1. Thank you, Alice. I enjoy projects and chanllenges. Our weather’s turned cold again. I seem to feel better in winter when it is cold like it should be instead of unusual warmer temperatures. Thanks for reading.


  4. For someone who thinks of herself as having no energy, I think you get an awful lot accomplished. Aerobics classes, swimming, painting, 365 Somethings Project, walking Sheba… Not to mention very interesting 1002 word essays every day. It seems to me like you do accomplish a lot, but only you can be the judge. Just don’t judge too harshly 🙂

    1. Thank you, Des! Guess I’m feeling a bit of the winter. Getting a big bill for a new furnace fan added to the heaviness. But I’m over it now. And it’s turned cold again. So it was good it happend when it was warm. Always things to be grateful for. 🙂
