Sometimes luck finds you and you get the opportunity to do something that truely
makes your heart sing.
The other day i was supposed to be working a late shift,
I had whizzed around all morning, tidying and completing as many chores as possible.
Just as I was about to get ready to go to work, my boss called and offered me the day off
. . . Yes . . .
So since the house was tidy i thought this time is man and I looked to my sewing cabinet
I had new fabric and an idea in mind, but I needed a table to cut my fabric out
My dining table was covered in clothes ( I had just folded) waiting to be put away by their owners
So I went outside to our outdoor area
under the marquee I could feel a gentle breeze blow across my skin
I could hear the cicarda's chirping
And it was just a beautiful day
I felt filled with joy
So I cut out my new skirt and then was ready to head inside to start sewing, and then I thought why go inside ? It was lovely outside why not enjoy it
I grabbed an extension cord and miss Bonnie and set myself up
Within a an hour my skirt was almost complete.
The simple things
A gentle breeze, the sun sparkling on the water in the pool, the cicarda's and the hum of Bonnie.
Too many times I run around doing this or that and rarely allow myself to stop and enjoy some of the simple pleasures in life.
But after this I intend to stop more often and give myself more time off
"Life is like a cup of tea, it's all in how you make it"
