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!

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!

Resting sometimes means sleeping in.

Did you notice I am a little late this morning?  I decided to sleep in and take it easy.  Once in a while a break in your routine is a good thing.  Life is not always meant to be scheduled but also to be lived.  How do you intend to live today?  What makes you wake up in the morning?  For me, it is often you.  What can I create to help you to be more creative?  If you have a certain something that you don’t know how to do or wish someone would think through the template for you, tell me!  I am working on new classes as I type.

Happy Crafting!

P.S.  I want to hear from you!

Change of routine for me today.

Today is a good day to rest and stay out of the sun.  The back of my arms are a little tender today since they don’t normally see the sun.  But today is a new day even if my skin isn’t.  To re-charge today I am attending and enjoying a concert.  Not a bunch of creating, blogging, and planning today for me.  What’s on your adventure list today?

Happy Crafting!

Resting by trying something new.

I don’t know about you but I often like what is familiar and what is comfortable.  I will find myself going to the same restaurant, sitting in the same booth (I prefer over a table), seeing the same waiter/waitress, and ordering the same thing.  It’s easy.  I don’t have to think.  But sometimes your brain or body gets stagnant and you need to try something new.

So, today we are watching a new movie…the Avengers.  And we are trying a new restaurant.  I will let you know how it goes.

Don’t be afraid to break up your routine and try something new.  It might be great.  Here’s to an adventure.

Have you tried something new recently?

Happy Crafting!

Defining rest.

Have you ever searched or googled the word “rest”?  One dictionary site defines rest as the refreshing quiet or repose of sleep.  Another says it is a bodily state characterized by minimal functional and metabolic activities.  If you click into the images section you find several images…a rest stop sign, someone sleeping, and some pretty powerful quotes.  Here are a couple of my favorites.

Let yourself rest.

Rest & recover.

Rest more to grow bigger and stronger.

I think the biggest thing that hit me were all the rest area signs.  This reminded me to put my rest in an area.  To set aside time and space to rest.  Don’t get too busy to not replenish.

What do you do to rest?  Do you change your routine?  Is there a place in your home that gives you the best rest?  Now that we’ve talked about resting I think it’s time for some crafting therapy.

Happy Crafting!
