"LIFE ISN'T ABOUT FINDING YOURSELF
LIFE IS ABOUT CREATING YOURSELF"
George Bernard Shaw
I am really feeling like this quote is true for me at the moment. I have been in a strange sort of mood for the past week and haven't felt like blogging although I have visited everyone every day. I feel in a very quiet reflective mood. I am still wanting to crazy quilt and have ordered several books and some silk ribbon and silk floss. I have also bought some paint to try out for the right colour to paint my apartment. I still want to create the Victorian atmosphere in my apartment and am reflecting on that and may do a story board for it. I just wish I had more energy, I find it takes me longer to get going in the morning than it did when I was fifty. I seem to move in slow motion and then get tired more quickly than I used to as well.
I spent two days writing the newsletter for the building and then had to go out to Coquitlam to pick it up from my daughter. I also sold some of my photos and photo cards so I have been printng those and getting some printed that I couldn't do at home. I love doing them at home, I have an HP Photosmart, a cute little machine that makes amazing prints. It's one of my favourite toys (along with my camera).
The weather continues to be amazing. Only a few drops of rain since May. So unusual for Vancouver.
I have quite a few ideas floating around in my head so am just waiting for the moment when I am ready to start working on them.
I have been working on The Artist's Way and The Joy Diet. I have also just finished reading a book called A Summer Of Secrets by Martina Reilly. It is a novel but the woman in it is in a plane crash and goes through treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is a very good book, a few laughs and good story with some very good info on PTSD.
I have also started a new eating plan put together by my daughter who is a personal trainer and is certified in nutrition so here's hoping!!!
Time to get to bed with the hopes of getting up early tomorrow and not waking up at 5 am and then wanting to back to sleep after I've read a little.
