The last couple of months I haven’t felt like doing anything but sleep and watch TV. I’ve been in hibernation mode. For me, that’s really out of character. I almost always have four or five projects going at the same time. I haven’t even been interested in sewing or quilting much lately. Have you ever felt like that?
I had 11 days off over Christmas and New Year’s Day, and I had all these big plans of finishing several quilts I had started. I only worked on one a little bit. I did watch a lot of movies and TV shows that I had recorded on our DVR and got it back up to 70%! We haven’t had that much space on our DVR in years. That was probably my biggest accomplishment during my time off. I know, pretty sad, huh?
I’m starting to wonder if I have a touch of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Dave thinks I’m being a hypochondriac and I just need some sunlight. Maybe I need one of those SAD lights that simulate sunlight. I do think this cold, gray Iowa weather is really having a negative affect on me this winter and a trip to a sunny climate is in order. Do any of you have SAD or know someone with SAD? I think I need to find out more about it.
I’m slowly trying to get back into the swing of things now that the holidays are over. I have several quilts waiting for me, but I haven’t felt like working on them. So I finished a new name tag. I thought it was time. I was getting tired of my old name tag. I really like how my new one turned out. I do wish I had used a stabilizer on the back of it so that you can’t see the threads behind it. I’ll have to remember to do that next time.
