I realized today that Spring is almost here.
This is a good season in my life. i can go outside.
I can do some physical activity, and breath.
I am luckier than most people. When I wake up in the morning, I have a choice of what I would like to do that day. I have this choice because unlike many, I am not currently working full time, or even part time. Well, actually, writing my blog is a part time job. But it doesn’t feel like a job, so I love it.
I have written poetry before about how many hats I wear in terms of what I like to do. I obviously love to write, I crochet, I am a musician, I needle felt and I garden.
This morning after the kids (all 4 of them) went off to their various schools, I did my usual cleaning (as little as possible:)) and was bombarded with ideas for the day.
Since I have been writing this blog, I always read and write first thing in the morning.
I will usually post something at night also. having lived gone through my day. You never know what will happen in one day. Either way, I am writing now, check.
I think after this, I will start some seed for my vegetable garden, which is a lot easier than one would think. I will post something on that separately. Next, I will needle felt a mobile for my neighbor down the street who had her second child two weeks ago. I love needle felting and am pretty good at it. Needle felt present, next check.
By time I am done needle felting, the kiddies will be coming home.
Noise and drama. Drama and noise. But I love ’em.
No one wants to hear what I do after that because it’s the same thing most mom’s do when their kids get home.
That’s that. I feel lucky and blessed to be able to choose.
I guess that’s the point of this post. I have always heard that people should do a job that they love. For most people, that is not a reality. I get to do what I love everyday, but there’s no pay in that. So I have to love it or I would just sit around writing depressing poetry all day. Wait, I love to write. Scratch that.
I hope everyone out there in blogging land has a great day today.
Like I said, this is my season, so get ready for a potpourri of different how to posts, poetry, stories and hopefully an announcement that I got a job writing.
We shall see.
