Sue and I can now quit worrying about that and start worrying about other things. The church community pulled through and all beings may experience happiness. I still have to survive the budget meeting, but that will be okay.
Yesterday I realized I have been going about this time off thing all wrong. I wrote out Beacon Birthday (substantially complete, no lyrics). I went to the spa and got a lemongrass scrub and hot stone massage, which I needed like you would NOT believe. I went to Sue’s to do church business. I did a small shop, which Jeff is going to get the benefit of today as I have a nice brekky planned for him. I did not go singing, but I did record SIX SEPARATE SONGS by singing into my phone. I’ve had songs in my head for days, and I composed and recorded, on the spot, six songs. I don’t even know if they were the songs that have been kicking around my head. But I certainly seem to have no shortage.
Being off work has made it possible.
Margot came and snuggled with me again. She likes my bed better now that I’ve gone back to using the duvet cover.
And I quit worrying. Life is short, and the part of life where I’m mobile and get to enjoy myself is vanishing before my eyes.
I also figured out what I am giving for Christmas. It is good. I think my friends will like it.
