I was able to have a very restful sleep last night that included dreams! I love to dream, but rarely do, or at least I don't remember any when I wake up. When I awoke this morning I had so many creative thoughts to write about or talk to someone about. I felt inspired and full of positive thoughts. They were all racing around in my mind and I wished I could have bottled them up.. so that I could sort them all out later. After being awake now for awhile they are starting to fade and my mind is racing with all the activities I need to do today. Bummer! It was so good while it lasted. If I were a writer I would look forward to these times and just tell everyone...leave me alone for as long as it takes for me to create my story, because Now is the time.
I just have to quickly update my past few days of activities, because this blog has become my diary of sorts. I like to look back here occasionally and say...Oh yes that was what I did that day or week.
I missed 3 days of "work outs" at the gym, but got back at it yesterday. My old injuries have flared up and I need to think about what caused it. I have arthritis in one knee that feels like a sharp bone puncturing me. I had severe tendinitis in my left ankle and foot that I had therapy on a few years ago that helped tremendously. That has flared up a bit. And last but not least, the three toes that I broke 20 years ago, have been hurting. SO I may have to rethink the way I have been doing some of the exercises. I have been going now for 2 months and had not had any problems until now. No weight loss yet either...but I LOVE going. I really enjoy it and look forward to going so much. I would be upset if I couldn't go for some reason.
We had our Auxiliary meeting on Monday and tried to get in gear for our Lenten fish fries. I have a co-President who helped me out the first year as she had done this before about 10 years ago. I was her secretary during her term of President. I used to have a terrible fear of speaking in front of a group, or being in charge of an organization like that. I am very happy to have conquered that fear for the most part. My partner is very assertive and outgoing, and I am well...as she told someone the other day.."diplomatic". Is that good or bad? I guess diplomatic is good. So I will accept her compliment graciously. Ha.
The other thing that I have been doing is working on the quilt, and it is coming along nicely, but will not be completed for some time. I have one row across assembled.
And last but not least...the orchid is still blooming beautifully. I need that to look at each morning for inspiration.
