Yesterday ended up being a highly productive day. Once I finished this I went and cleaned up my office, cleaned out my library (this is actually a walk in closet that I have put bookshelves etc in), vacuumed the whole house, washed the kitchen floors and cleaned a bunch of the windows (I focused on the ones that had the most dog snot on them). I’m not sure why I am continuing to write out here in the living room. I do want to write in my office. It feels “right” again. I supposed the simple answers are the AC is out here and the kids are too. But the kids would come in my room if I went in there. Sooooo…. Habit then.
Since I have done a lot around the house I guess I can focus on writing today. And since I am feeling little better some yoga. I pulled out my yoga mat and block from my office when I cleaned yesterday. Chris was shocked when he came in my office and saw everything I got done before he got up. When I finished vacuuming he was nice enough to blow out the various filters from the vacuum for me. He got a crash course on how to take it apart and put it back together. The house does feel better. I am trying not to look around and see other things that need to be done. I try to clean every day but when the bug bites I try to go with it and that’s when I tackle the bigger projects. That being said I also need to make sure that I don’t lose myself in that and not write.
I found that I don’t write in the current journal as much. Part of it is because I am getting to the end and I am anxious to start using a new journal. The other part just dawned on me the other day. It’s too small. The pages are too narrow and my writing feels confined. Writing a page at night in a spiral notebook or something of that size I feel I can get it all said. Even if I go on for a few pages in this journal I feel confined. I got it because it was smaller and easier to cart around. I guess that I need to pay attention from now on.
I think I will wrap this up and see what kind of trouble I can get into on paper. Thanks for reading! Stay safe and have a great day!
