Day Out

Yesterday morning I left the house - just left it all for the day.

I needed to get away from everything.  My head kept telling me that I had so much to do and as Dad was away at the Working with Wood show - I should use the time to do all the household chores that I had been neglecting.

Instead I went out for the day.

I bought the undercoat for the walls and then went shopping with Elizbeth and finally sat in the car for an hour reading, while she attended her lecture. Bliss.

I found myself stressed last night at what I had not achieved, but after loading 'Dances with Wolves' and 'Out of Africa' soundtracks onto my Ipod - and falling asleep dreaming of the African and American plains, I have woken invigorated and refreshed today.

So listening to my soul yesterday, really worked; and today my mind can get back into gear.

renovations are like that aren't they? Some times you just have to take a break from that long to do list and have some fun!
