Resting by processing

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  This week has been a whirlwind for me.  How was your week?

I am resting today by putting my feet up (still in Florida) and processing my notes and going through everything I have jotted and taken pictures of.

What is your process for de-compressing after you have received a ton of information?

Happy Crafting!

Are you resting today?

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Are you resting today for me?  I am on day 2 of the Reach Out Morongo Basin’s Craft Fair.  I am not resting much but I am getting to talk to people and do a bunch of crafting.  It’s a break from the routine but not one with my feet up.

I would encourage you to go out of your comfort zone and do something different today.  If you always go get breakfast on Sunday morning maybe order your eggs different.  You just might discover something new and like it.

Happy Crafting!

Forceful rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Are you resting today?  I hope you are not having to find your front yard after all the rain we’ve had up here in the high desert.

I find it funny that sometimes we overbook ourselves and Mother Nature has a way of slowing us down.  In this case it was a sudden stop.  Nearly 18 hours later and the highway is still shut in parts.

So instead of Card Class yesterday we will move it back a week and I will get things done now instead.  Here’s to being able to re-focus and get a few things planned.  It’s amazing what happens when the main road to town is washed out.

Here’s to everyone staying safe and dry.

Happy Crafting!

Resting with girlfriends.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Sometimes the best way to re-charge is to check out with a few girlfriends and be a tourist.  So today I am taking a tour of the Orchid Nurseries, the Gem Show, and grabbing lunch.  What do you do for fun?

Happy Crafting!

Definition of rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday and it’s my day of rest.  I googled “rest” and several things came up.  These examples are from the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

  1. We will not rest until we discover the truth.
  2. The workers were resting in the shade.
  3. He is resting comfortably after his ordeal.
  4. She went to her room to rest for awhile.
  5. The coach canceled practice to rest his team.

Other than the first one every other one is about allowing your body to find comfort to restore.  This allows for you to come back stronger and again to do more of what you had been doing.  I know with working out that the rest days are so important as long as you have done the work.

The second thing that pops up with rest is restaurants.  This implies to rest you must not work.

How do you enjoy your days off?

Happy Crafting!

Sometimes failure brings rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Have you ever been so stressed about something that finally coming to the end of it is a relief?  Whether you succeed or fail you are just glad it is over.  And then you seem to sleep for days to get over the ordeal.

This is how it is in my home with my daughter.  Every time there is a big test at school, drama with a good friend, or a competition for band she gets a little on edge.  Once the ordeal is done she is just exhausted.  She seems to sleep for days on end.  After a day or two then she is back to “normal”.

So what are you stressing about?  What’s just finished that you might be mentally or physically exhausted over?  How do you process what just happened so you can continue?  For me, the answer is usually to create.  This allows me to check out.

Happy Crafting!

Day 9 of 12 Days of Christmas

Today’s blog post is about resting and having fun.  So my question is how do you let your mind go?  How do you get new ideas?  How do you stretch your creative muscles?

Comment with where you get your creative ideas and get a ticket per comment.  Make sure to post separately.  Please don’t repeat within your own comments.  You can repeat or duplicate from someone else.

Rest is often a break from the routine.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  This is the day to rest and re-charge.  Rest can be defined as a break from the routine.  So, I will ask you, how do you break from the routine?  I need some ideas for the bunch of us to do.  Here’s what is being contemplated.

In October the play “Carrie” is being done with Theatre 29.

In November (the 3rd I believe) is the Beer & Wine Tasting at the Boys & Girls Club.

On November 30 there will be a first time Tuba Christmas at The River.  (Joel is coordinating.)

Please let me know if you have other ideas.

Happy Crafting!
