A little R and R

Last week was just so busy and I was so tired I didn’t do much crafting. Usually, making stuff is my me time and a chance for self-care and relaxation, but I didn’t even much feel like doing that.

A weird word schedule. Too many dirty dishes that never seemed to go away no matter how much washing. Laundry that’s still in need of folding and a million other teeny tiny to dos.

I just said no to all the extras. No craft projects or blogging. Just enough energy to crash on the couch at the end of the day.

In 2008, my grandfather thur-hiked the Appalachian Trail. Thru-hikers typically take the occasional “zero day” as it’s called. It means they logged zero miles on the trail that day. It’s a chance to go into town to restock on supplies or just take a break and recover/relax.

I think that’s what the last week has been for me, a string of zero days.

I feel like I’m mostly back on track now.

Tomorrow, I’m expecting a delivery of the last things I needed to construct my craft fair booth. So I’m planning to have that done this weekend.

Then, I’m be detouring from my craft fair wares projects for a bit to sew some curtains for my sister-in-law and some more placemats for a friend’s wedding present.

So, while there are still dishes in the sink and laundry in the hamper, I’m feeling ready to tackle them.
