Hello All. How are you in this bonkers time? Lots of change to process isn't there. Thinking of you all.
How is your weekend going? I was finding myself late last week with a bit of a frazzled brain and since I always like a good list or a bit of structure I came up with this idea. I've been working on some 'daily C routines' - so far I've got 4 ......
Something to CLEAN (as usual our place is a little bit of a shambles in places so channelling some energies into restoring a bit of order. With some ABBA to keep it boppy. Doesn't music help the mood.)
Do something CREATIVE. This one I think we all have a good handle on right? Wink! Grab out some of that craft stash or sewing stash or paints or inks and get stuck into a project. Share a pic with your crafty (and non crafty) friends. I've been enjoying seeing some cards, some quilts and other projects on the go. I'm starting some ATCs this weekend and trying a new technique for them. (I forget the name!)
Reach out and CONNECT. Feels like a good time to get much better at staying in contact with family and friends via email/phone and perhaps testing out facetime/skype. I'm choosing a few people each day to say hello to using technology and having those exchanges helps us all feel in this together. I think this one will be really important if we do end up needing to stay home based for a longer time. We need to swap our regular gatherings for a different form of connecting.
And find the CALM. My brain has been a bit of a whirl this week and are you finding when you go to bed your mind just wants to play through a whole playlist of 'what - ifs' ? Doesn't quite make for a good sleep. So I'm having a conscious effort this weekend to regroup the brain cells to do things like a short meditation, twist Jack's arm to play me something peaceful on the piano, read a novel, some slow calm breathing, a little gardening. What helps you find the calm?
