Good morning! How are you doing today?
It's a dreary day in my neck of the woods. It's cloudy, drizzling, and chilly. I started our pellet stove when I woke up...at 9:30...yup that's right. I stayed snuggled in bed until I finally coerced myself to pull back the covers and emerge from my warm cocoon at 9:30am.
I am still sitting in the warmth of the fire trying to get myself motivated to clean the house and make some bread. Not sure if it will get done today or not. I think it may be a self-care kind of day. Time for some hot tea, a good book, relax and just be. Be slow, be lazy, be kind to myself.
If you are feeling unmotivated, isolated, lonely for real conversation, be assured you are not alone. My husband is here and makes for great companionship. But I want my friends and the conversations we have. The woman to woman, artist to artist, soul to soul conversations. I miss that. I miss the hours we spent lingering over bottles of wine and plates of cheese and crackers. Where we laugh, we cry, we admit our faults, and embrace our successes. I want to spend my afternoon enjoying happy hour, hugs, and shared emotions. Grrr…I am done with COVID19. Will the real 2020 please step forward!
