Yesterday, I was feeling so utterly bored! Yes, I had many things still on my plate--many writing projects still to do. I still had chores to do, but I was bored...so I decided to fill my salt shakers. I got my supplies together--shakers, salt packets from restaurants, and tray. I started to tear the little suckers, and it felt great.
Being able to tear something, again and again, felt exhilarating. It's like I did some damage and something constructive at the same time. I did some mundane chore, without having to do any deep thinking. In the midst of that, I still had the pile of clothes to put away. I still had to make my bed, too.
Did I mention that it was already two o'clock in the afternoon? Did I say that I was still in my pajamas? Oh, yes, many of us have had those days. It doesn't matter if you are a stay-at-home mother or a work-out-of-home mother, we all have had a day like this. I think it might be an indication that we need to spice up our days a bit.
Perhaps it is the spring bug biting me. You know, it's like when you are aching to go outside and enjoy a wonderful spring day, frolicking in the green, green grass. Oh, yes, I can see us all wearing white--sundresses, white pant, and white t-shirts, and running in the sand in the beach on a bright, sunny day. Recharging our batteries is sometimes necessary. We need to rest our bodies, minds, and souls; then we can conquer the world when we land back into reality again.
What's to stop us from enjoying the warmer weather out there? Time? Money? Do we really need those things? No. How much does it cost to drive out to our local park, if the weather is right?
Whatcha gonna do, my readers? Are you gonna take me up on my challenge? Go out there and have some fun! I know what I'm gonna do--I'm gonna plant me some tomato and cucumber seeds for my garden this weekend.
Have yourselves some pre-spring fun for me. I already started by grabbing my mp3 player, cranking it up whilst I made my bed and put away my pile of clothes, all the while dancing like a crazy buffoon. Hehe!
God bless you all with peace, my beloveds.
