They aren't long, just a quote, a few words, a tag, date and time and publish: done. I enjoyed working on the quotes. I played in Photoshop. Today I learned how to fill a section with a pattern instead of just a color. I learn a little bit at a time.
Today's crafting helped me think my way through the rest of the month and the personal challenges ahead. From Tuesday's worries--I'm having surgery on my right should Wednesday--to my birthday slice and our grand finale celebration, I imagined each day.
My husband worked today so that he doesn't have spend vacation time to care for me later in the week. I will work Monday and Tuesday and then start my spring break early with the shoulder repair. I need to shop for a dress I can pull-on underneath a sling. I need to grocery shop. I should have cooked more ahead, but I know I won't starve. I know surgery will go well. I have a good doctor and family and friends who will help. Today I could have done all sorts of things to get the house or my wardrobe ready. Instead, I spent it on students and writing. I felt a bit guilty when my husband came home to a quiet house, no dinner made.
I'm thinking these quotes will make nice note cards. Work is never wasted.
