Making a Living Quilt Out of Pandemic Days.
Wednesday, October 28, 2020
I’m fortunate to be involved in a couple of organizations I value right now. I also love to learn and like to cook. I like to play games—word games and card games. I am in touch with our four children and their families. So my Covid life is a patchwork of all the above. Plus getting outdoors for a walk or some exercise.
But some days all of these things which ordinarily leave me feeling ‘robust’ and involved, now leave me scattered as I move from virtual this and that, to the grocery store, and back again to my computer. My DH and I sometimes fit in a Gin Rummy game and that’s fun. But he’s busy with his this and that too.
I tell you, I never feel organized, even though my spark points are up to date and we have dinner on the table each night.
But the thing is, I do believe I am making a crazy quilt of a sort with my life right now. I wish it were tangible...and perhaps I need to think about that. Because I do think my life is beautiful even if it resembles a creative mess of scrap cloth at the moment. My challenge is to stitch the pieces together. Working on that!
