It's a lovely day in Allie-land. Mild, hazy sunshine, and I was up at 5:30am. Good day to get things done.
So, I'm pulling floss colors for my new garden stitchery. But not very enthusiastically....I don't know what's wrong with me since I've been sick, I just can't seem to "settle" into anything. I have lots to do, and no desire to do it!
I think part of it might be that we're house-hunting. My goodness, that's distracting. We live in a tiny house, bursting at the seams, and we're looking for something bigger in a better city. I did find "the" perfect house on Saturday, a 1958 mid-century contemporary tri-level with a fireplace in my sewing room, but it didn't have enough yard and storage.
I'm spending far too much time on the computer looking for prospects. I LOVE "home" - making a home, being at home, decorating a home, and it's consuming me right now.
I've never loved the home we're in - it's never been "mine". So dreaming about a space that I love is weighing on my mind heavy lately. For a long time, I've decided to be content with what the Lord has given me, and minister where He puts me, but all this looking has stirred up long dormant feelings. It's hard to be content when you have a big fat juicy carrot dangling in front of your eyes.
However, "someone" is very content, no matter what, as long as mama is around....
Not very ladylike, but content. Maybe I should go take a nap too.
