Tuesday,Made it through Monday;)

      I loved this as Swedish cooking almost always has cinnamon involved.  My youngest daughter turned 25 today and I called her to wish her Happy Birthday.  She commented that my cold seemed to be hanging on much worse than hers.  Gee I wonder why?  Not due to a compromised immune system, or mom or stress, do you think? No it must be the cinnamon.

     I just tried to get through yesterday the best I could. Mom's memory is so bad and her new thing is to cling to me and ask questions, none of which go together or make sense.  I am really trying hard to be patient. But the constant interruptions to my train of thought are hard.  

     I made a large stew in the crock pot and did some sewing yesterday before I went to the studio.  But I did not get done what I wanted.  I tried to get some things done last night late after I got mom to bed.  I will try and finish those things this morning.  I am due at the studio at 4 p.m. for a couple of hours.

     I shattered the cookie paddle attachment to my Bosch mixer and I have been waiting for the part to come in, and it had arrived last night.  So about 11:00 ( mom was in bed)  I whipped up 2 batches of cookie dough that are in the fridge.  Mom does not know so she cannot nag me about them.  I am getting sneaky.  

     I have fed mom and I am going to get into the shop and get things done and then I have to take her to the store for eye drops and personal things.  Several things came in from Amazon yesterday to help me complete Christmas projects.  Just wish I had more time to work on things.

      I actually de-stress when I work on sewing and projects.  Really any kind of work will calm me down as long as I don't feel pressured to hurry.

     I need to get to work!
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. When I sewed morning, or noon, or night, people said to me, "Doesn't that stress you and wear you out?" "Absolutely not, sewing relaxes me." People found this hard to believe. a person cannot sew well and stress over things. I got lost in sewing and creating.

    my immune system is not compromised, I don't think, but I am on and off trying to get well and then sick. I hope you get better soon.

  2. You need to celebrate that you made it through Monday--I suggest a 15 minute break of just doing whatever you want, be it sewing, reading, a cup of tea or dancing wildly to inappropriate music in the kitchen (I usually dance to ZZ Top or Pistol Annies--I may look silly but it's wonderfully refreshing).
