Productive vs. Creative
I have not posted for awhile because I have been in “busy” mode. Two of my relatives are going through life-changing illnesses right now. I have been spending quite a bit of time on the phone talking to various relatives since I live far from all of them. Normally I am not a phone head so that alone has been time consuming and tiring.
This has been a near perfect spring and summer in far northern California. So that has meant a lot of outdoor time in the garden and working in the yard. I also got a fire lit under me changing bedding and washing throw rugs and hanging lots of things outdoors to dry. And sorting things out to go to the thrift store.
In the midst of all of this family time and work I have found some time for spinning. I even did my first fiber dyeing session with what turned out to be hilarious results after I got over the disappointment. When I post the pics here soon all can share in the experiment which amounted to learning what not to do when dyeing wool fiber and yarn.
So I guess I have been very productive with tasks and somewhat creative with my space and fiber pursuits. Now the trick will be how to shift more time to the creative side again and keep everyday life and tasks from intervening as much. Wish me luck!
