What a tiring day! Work-wise, this is one of my shortest days of the week. It was the to-dos when I got home that were overwhelming. I spent hours in the kitchen. Of course, I also had to go to the grocery store because I forgot some items.It felt like Thanksgiving in the kitchen. The never-ending tasks. Lots of dishes. I was making dinner for tonight and tomorrow as well as making a breakfast dish to take to work tomorrow. In hindsight, I should have purchased something. Oh well.
I felt rushed to get through the kitchen tasks. At one point, one of the girls asked me why I was in such a hurry. The reason…one of my coworkers gave me a bag of t-shirts headed for a donation. I gladly took them off her hands so I could play with my sewing machine.
By the time I sat down to play with those t-shirts, I was wiped. I did manage to make a few headbands for the girls.Now the rush is over. The things I had to do are done. The things I wanted to do are done.
Lord of all calm
Now I need to slow down.I can’t go into the last moments of the day feeling rushed.
I like to read, I like to stare blankly at the wall, I like to be still.And as I am gazing into the haze of the computer screen in front of me, I know that the time has come for me to get ready for sleep.
And enjoy the last moments of the day.
