I’ve been thinking of adding back my lists of Very Good Things on Fridays– something to finish up the week, a bit of reflection. I recently came across the notebook I used to keep the lists in- a gift from my friend Katey J- and I miss the practice. It keeps getting search hits so it’s obviously something I need to get back to doing. Fridays, then?
I didn’t have a chance to do one today, although I really should have. I could have used the lift this afternoon. I’m still feeling a little off, Hugo was- well, he wasn’t being himself either, actually, that’s how I’m going to put that- he was acting like a true jerkbutt this morning, and I didn’t get to accomplish the half things I’d hoped for today. I did burst into tears over absolutely nothing before noon, though, so I’ve got that knocked off the list for at least the next six weeks. Ah, medication withdrawals, you’re aces.
I’m glad I know why I feel so crap, at least, that it’s getting better, and that it will keep moving in that general direction. There’s a lot to be grateful for here, and I’m trying to be really aware of all that. I steadily sew on my new little projects- watercolor embroideries, small, fantastic disasters of color and geometry- and try to keep my focus on the small things: one stitch at a time.
Also- hey, everybody! It’s Craftsy’s fifth birthday this month. Get 50% off most-loved Craftsy classes to celebrate! Save today through my affiliate link, and help me keep doing this thing that I love. This sale is running through tomorrow- it’s quick, but good.
I guess in the end, I did make a tiny list of good things- a return to the Lists, little hand-stitched watercolor disasters, approaching the end of this whole meds quit/ withdrawal mess, and a sale. I’ll just be expanding on the theme next time, y’all.
