What to do on a dreary raining/sleety day? A good day to stay home and enjoy the silence, solitude and simplicity I love. And so I did. It was a good day but there were things to do. I made turkey soup, and that was fun. I finished the scarf I was knitting for my grandson, and that was fun.
I wrapped his gift and one for my daughter, and that was satisfying because I’m excited about the gifts and want to get them in the mail tomorrow--but not really fun. It took over a half hour to wrap, write the notes, fill in the mailing labels, and seal the packages ready to do. Simple, necessary, satisfying tasks that take time!
That was yesterday. Today I mailed the packages on my way to meet my sister for our birthday breakfast. Born on the same day, six years apart.
