Day 21 of the shutdown.  One of the few (very few) upsides is that I’ve been able to spend a lot of time on this blog.  Although it’s been a lot of fun, I’m so ready to go back to work.  Even more ready for a paycheck!  Also, I haven’t been able to whip up some enthusiasm to get into my craft room and create something.  I thought I would spend a lot of time in there finishing some quilts, creating some greeting cards, making a pillow or two.  Every time I go in there I walk right back out.  Depression?  Maybe. I don’t know, but I need to snap out of it!  A co-worker of mine going through the same thing said the song Reflections Of My Life is helping her get through it.  I had forgotten what a beautiful song this is.  I’ve decided it was worth uploading the video here:

A nice warm fire is taking the chill out of the room. One of the nice things about Texas is that it’s only cold for a couple of months each year.

Now that I have the website up and running I think I’ll spend time in the craft room tomorrow. I need to get the quilts for the grand daughters completed! Time to stop procrastinating. I’ve been in a quilting funk the last year or so. I have so many projects that I want to get started on. But I need to finish the two quilts I have in progress first.

Weather today, cold drizzle. 37 degrees

I’ve been off work for 13 days. What was supposed to be a nice stay at home vacation has turned into a 12 day (so far) furlough due to the government shutdown.
