We've heard it a billion times: while we're waiting to "hear," we're supposed to be writing something new.
Can you do it? I can't do it, am not focused enough. I want to do other things, things that bring quicker gratification.
So I turn my efforts toward cooking and crafting. Today, I sewed a lovely curtain from Italian fabric to go over the laundry closet my husband took the door off ten years ago.
I've decided that while I wait to "hear," while I wait for Dave to finish our decade-long remodel, I'll fix up some things.
Next, I am going to reattach some new weatherstripping to the windows. I know. But it's better than waiting.
In between my house projects, I've been creating silk flower pins with my girl. We cut and burn and glue, then stick a sparkly little something in the center. We have baskets and baskets of these.
Maybe I should have a give-away. Because I haven't yet. Because they're fun. Because the flowers are really pretty, and would go well with a nice book and some Oregon Dagoba chocolate.
Because that would be something super gratifying, for me, and for you, too!
