Come Here to Dream, (Pen & Watercolor)

This past week, I took time off from sewing diapers so that I could focus on my family and home. It was a great little vacation! I effectively did my "Spring Cleaning", and discovered that I actually love working in my home. I love taking care of my home. I started working on putting up a bead-board back splash in my kitchen, reorganized my laundry room, and made of list of projects that need to be done around the house.

I also rediscovered the whole concept of sitting still, and doing something just for fun. I sat outside and watched my kids swim, without a laptop/phone/book/diaper-work. It was a little traumatizing trying to quiet my inner "gotta-do-something" voice, but I did. And I actually enjoyed it!

I took the time to do a painting "just because" to enter in a little art show at our local community center on base. Sometimes taking the time to do something "just because" can be just what you need to make you feel good about yourself. Try it!
