Do you ever get out of sync with the people you've surrounded yourself with? I don't mean a real issue, just out of sync...not connected in our usual way, miscommunications, missed connections, nothing to say, off in different directions.
That's what the weekend was like for me.
I hate when it's like that. It is not the norm in my family. We're usually in really good tune. So, when we're walking in different directions, it is very noticeable.
But, how do I FEEL about that?
Isolated and alone. Unable to say anything for fear it will come across wrong. Left out of the family fun.
I guess it's times like this that really make me appreciate the close family ties that we enjoy. Sometimes you have to step outside of normal to really appreciate normal.
So, what did I do with my very quiet weekend? I sewed and sewed and listened to an audiobook. I spent time working in the yard and I picked the crabapples for jelly...but I didn't cook them down to juice yet. I finished my little red backpack and am mostly happy with it. I may make one more adjustment and see if that will make me completely happy with it, so I'm withholding pictures until I decide about that. And, I did a ton of hand work on the Dresden Plate quilt, first building the sashings and cornerstones and then starting to sew them on. But, that is slow work and a lot of progress doesn't look like much accomplishment. And, I started the 20th jubilee block because that usually perks me up.
And, I waited for the weekend to be over, in hopes that our routines will get us all back in sync.
Everybody have a great Monday. Lane
