On the Mend

Day 320 of 365

I am on the mend–at least I am pretty sure I am. I feel my strength coming back a little each day, and though I have nowhere near the stamina I used to have for the daily chores of life, today, I managed to clean the chicken coop! It took me extra long, but I was so happy to do it. I love those chickens so much; it makes me happy to keep their coop clean.

I had some grading to do today, but I still went for a walk, practiced cello, and sewed a little. All of these things are treats to me and good for my soul, but the “sewing a little” was extra nice because I haven’t had time to sew for a long time. I love to make things out of fabric. I’m not super skilled, but I am getting better all the time.

My son always uses a grocery tote for carrying his music and rosin and pencils, so I made a bag for him out of scraps. He really liked it, but I love it. I have more scraps and hope to make myself one tomorrow.

The making helps me heal so much.

    Creating, cleaning, cooking, crafting…. and exercise…. are so good for the body and soul!
    Don’t try for all of them each day but some every week to nourish yourself. Keep moving forward Crystal…. spring is emerging…. it will all be pretty after mud season. 😩😁
