" Good guesses.", says Farmlady.
Mostly I've been lazy, but I have been helping with the potting shed too,
I had to put a SWEATER on this morning . It was chilly out there. The dogs were fine with their fur coats but a t-shirt wasn't enough for me.
Do you see what I'm doing here? I'm going nowhere. I've got very little to blog about.
Sweaters? Dog fur" holding nails? It's a blogjam. A "What do I say next." kind of day.
I'm kind of tired of everything.
I didn't even go to my gourd meeting yesterday.
My feet hurt and I'm tired.
Yes, I'm whining.
Take a look at this... I just went and took some photos of the bed in my extra room.
On the floor.... at the foot of the bed.
Good grief! Hobbies gone amuck!
And Look! Here's the clearly/confusing oxymoron* of my life.
This is my grandson's desk for creative endeavors when they are visiting.
Look at this mess...
Do you see the small 2011 calendar behind the basket, against the mirror. Look closely...
HA! It's July and I haven't even opened it yet.
All of this bring to mind my life long quest for simplicity of thought and what comes to mind is another oxymoron: sadly/amusing. I look at this room and then I look at the unopened calendar and I see a huge gap between what I seem to be doing and what I really want to do. I see too many things going on at once. I'm too old to be multitasking this much.
It's straining my brain.
It's time to slow down and do one thing.
I will just do KNITTING and felting....
and, of course Blogging. I can't stop Blogging.
...and a little gardening. After all, I can't not garden.
...and what should I do with all these gourds?...
...and the acrylic paints, pencils and glues?
What about the jewelry stuff?
AND MY PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY!!!
My cameras are permanently attached to me.
This is not as simple as it seems....
A friend said recently that my house was full. I was listening to you "C".
I think "Your house is full." is a koan*. As in "When you can do nothing, what can you do? (Zen koan)
I think that I will go for a long walk tomorrow and think about all of this.
I guess I had more to say than I thought.
If anyone has advice....direction... answers?
Koan: A paradoxical anecdote or riddle, used in Zen Buddhism to demonstrate the inadequacy of logical reasoning and to provoke enlightenment.
