Quiet + Rest
(Sorry, babe...but I love this photo!)
It's days like today that I feel like scribbling words on paper (or the computer screen) or threading floss methodically through fabric.
Lately, this blog has been a little quiet. These last few weeks have been a time of adjustment for me. Back to the grind of school and work. Watching my hubby calculate complicated math + aerospace problems into the late hours of the evening. Feeling a bit done after six and retreating to the couch.
Dishes are left undone. The laundry from last weekend is still folded in the basket. Our office looks like a paper and fabric museum. My blog has been quiet and still.
I know that I'll catch wind of motivation again, but for now, I feel a bit like quiet and time is what I crave. It's okay to rest--to stop running around like a crazy person and stop and enjoy life. At the same time, I don't want rest to turn into laziness. Or quiet into boredom.
I often think that fall is a time for nestling in for the winter; a time, even amidst the holiday season, to enjoy the warm of your home and the quiet of dark evenings. A time to slow down a bit.
I do have lots of blog ideas floating around, but for now, they will rest until I'm ready to tackle them with more than a mediocre effort.
I promise that lots of exciting things are happening--just wait :)
Do you ever feel like quiet and rest are luring you in? That you crave and need some time to stop doing and simply rest?
