Just Another Rainy Day
It only rains 73 days out of the year in South Carolina. I seemed to have forgotten that most of those days are in February. Today is a gloomy, overcast day here in paradise. The temperature is a balmy 57. It would be a good day for running (in my case dancing ) in the rain, if I could find the energy and motivation. They seem to be lacking.
I have an afghan to finish. I have a book to get started on. I have a couple of phone calls to make. Both of those will get done here shortly. I could in general pick up around the condo, run the vacuum, and sweep the floor. No motivation.
I read part of a novel I'd started. It didn't work out as a novel as, I didn't have enough knowledge to make it work right. I think I should look at it and take it a different way. It has great potential. Having read the first page at a book event on Wed. and getting feedback of don't leave us hanging. I think it needs another look. Even if it only becomes a short story.
I have an afghan to rip out and restart. It has not turned out the way I had hoped and I need to do something different with it. I have a Barbie doll outfit to finish. It has been years since I started it and I need to get busy and get it done. Don't know if I'll be making any more of those. I'm sure I have a couple of baby layettes that need to be made, too. Just no motivation today.
Curling up on the sofa with a cup of hot tea and becoming an official "Couch Potato." Maybe I'll find motivation tomorrow.
