Ointment for the soul

Today, on my only day off for rest, I decided that my soul was in need of some soothing. So I put on my sexy yoga pants and baggy T-shirt, and headed for the nearest craft store (what else would I do to soothe my soul, of course?), where I spent a good hour wandering every aisle relishing how nice it was to be able to do so without a husband tailing me and complaining “can we GO yet?”. Another baby step in learning to enjoy my solitude accomplished…

I found a couple of projects to work on, which will keep me busy for a while. I find that I often have a hard time staying in bed, even when I desperately need to, as I get bored and feel lazy laying around doing nothing; so I learned a long time ago that having a project to keep my hands busy helps with that problem. Not to mention that there is just something incredibly soothing about sitting down and creating something from nothing, from beginning to end. 

The only downside is that I may say now that crafting and creating is soothing, until I get halfway through a project and it is frustrating me so that I am screaming at it…happens every time. In the end it is yet another lesson in perseverance I suppose…

Wish me luck and if these are successful projects I will post pictures of the results!
