Good Day, God!
Under the thumb of my flu-like illness resting has been relatively easy to do. I only overdid on the day I had real tea — too much of it. But, without caffeine I have been more than happy to stay in bed.
I was particularly happy yesterday after I spent a few minutes removing clutter and making my “sick room” LOOK nice. Thank You, God. It was a lovely lesson on the “practical importance” of beauty.
Now I am in my office which is overflowing with beads. Not just the beads I brought back from Prescott and Quartzsite in Arizona but years’ worth of beads. Today I took a necklace Kit that bought me at the Hall Museum gift shop in Prescott and I turned it into a shorter necklace, earrings and a bracelet! I am sitting here smiling, God. Smiling even if my desk is piled with “potential projects.” Maybe tomorrow they can be set aside . . . or maybe assembled?
I’ve been zipping through Dearie, a biography of Julia Child. The book starts with a history of Pasadena of all things.
Being free to spend time with books is almost worth the pain of being sick. I confess that it took a few days of mindless reading before I could move on and mostly up to Eli Broad’s (to rhyme with road) autobiography The Art of Being Unreasonable. Eli delighted me. I love it when billionaires care about giving to good causes!
Hmm. You are right. All of us can experience the joys of giving!
Speaking of giving, God, I have been well enough to wash the sheets, do dishes and some cleaning up. I’m finally giving a wee bit back to Kit after he has spent so many days doing everything!
