Day 545 I wonder if mind over matter can really work.
Thursday, February 11, 2016
My mind thinks I can do lots of things just like I used to but the reality is my body does not cooperate. I had to sit down 3 times during the time it took to really clean my glass top stove today. My back got really sore with the reaching because I'm so short I can't reach the back where the knobs are without standing on my stool. it did take quite a bit of scraping and rubbing to get it looking pretty good. I haven't done that chore in a long time.
I did sew today. I decided that I couldn't chose between the 2 colors for this years quilt and treated myself to doing both of them. I finished one of this months squares today. I think it might be some of my best work.
I also mailed all 6 pillow cases and the quilt.
Tomorrow is garbage and recycling day. So by the time I got them to the curb the cold air had really bothered my lungs. There are things in the car I should bring in but I'm not carrying heavy things in cold air. I don't want to get sick again.
I also crocheted a lot today. I found a website doing something called 365 Granny Squares. A new square for each day. I decided I would try it but with a twist. Each month I'll take my 30 or so squares and turn them into a lap sized blanket. That way when I catch up I can change colors every month. For Jan. I have a medium brown, light yellow, burgundy, white and a moss green. Some of the squares are just so pretty.
I need to go to town tomorrow. I have several things I need to take care of for mom and dad. Just what I need is a running around day for someone else. Oh well.
