Day One of No Reading Week

Well, I've managed to resist so far, except for a sneak look at my personal emails - in case there was anything urgent, you understand!!!

Anyway, posting in this blog qualifies as writing not reading and therefore is okay (she says, guiltily!).

I had a busy weekend with some friends coming over for Sunday lunch yesterday. So I got up and took the kids to school and immediately came back and fell asleep for an hour! But then I got up and pulled a load of ivy from where it is climbing all over the front wall and looked at my herb plants like a mother hen (it was blowing a gale over the weekend and really tested their resilience). By then it was lunchtime so I made myself a leftovers omelette and then went to get a newspaper, walking about a mile to wake myself up and get some exercise. As soon as I got back I went up to my studio (I feel I can call it a studio these days as I seem to do more painting than sewing in it!) and finished off the paintings from the Mary Todd Beam book which I started last week. By then it was just about time to go and get the kids from school. Then half an hour ago I made some rock buns (with a twist - I put some lemon zest, cherries, coconut and orange juice in too).

I don't know if I've been much more productive today than when I am reading. Maybe it takes more than just one day. I did take a few photos of the wisteria which is now in full bloom and smells gorgeous, and I sketched one of the branches and picked out a few fabrics in the right colours of green to make a journal quilt based on it.

I hope this entry makes sense. I had Zachary asking me how to spell various words for his geography homework while I was trying to type it.

I am now going to be very disciplined and turn off the computer... I will be disciplined... I will be....

Realizing that you can't READ my comment, I write to say how much I admire you for following these rules. I just can't seem to follow rules, no matter how well intentioned. Please let me (us!) know how it all works out and if it was worth it or not...

It's okay, Lisa, comment away! I get them emailed to me and my personal emails are the ones I allow myself to read! Although I have just spent an hour on the computer doing an online grocery shop and various other things which somehow I just HAD to do today!!
