Thanks for popping in. Day off today. Late spring cleaning, light housework, making each room nice and tidy. Titivating, prettyfying. I have to be busy, even if Clarity is off the menu!
The weather was rather mis, so in the afternoon I settled down to another favourite pastime of mine, a jigsaw – which certainly does just that: Passes the time.
I listened to my newest book by Kate Morton, The Distant Hours, whilst sitting with a rather challenging Wasgij in the living room. You see, now that’s another conundrum for me: I NEVER sit in the living room during the day time (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day!). It’s unheard of! The living room is the place we collapse in the evenings, in front of a log fire and the goggle box! It’s almost taboo to sit in there during the daytime, when you should be working! Who made that rule up? Well, today Oh Absurd Rule Maker, I fart in your general direction. The jigsaw is set up in the living room, and I am not moving it!
These jigsaws are really cool, because they are NOT what’s on the lid; rather they are what what’s on the lid is looking at! Yeah, I know. I can hear you saying “why would you waste your precious time doing that ??” Thing is, looking for pieces and trying to reconstruct a picture from absolutely nothing and no lid is a perfect distraction and relaxation for me. And whilst colouring, doodling and drawing may yield a greater haul at the end, the jigsaw process is perfect for this tired head. Requires no real thought, allows me to listen to a story, yet keeps the hands going. Total switch off. Next best thing to being asleep, but awake.
One thing I would like to point out though: Check out where the TV is.
Yep. Behind me. Not interested in the box. It’s mostly just A WIND UP. Remember what we all agreed? No news is best.
So I shall love you and leave you till tomorrow. Must get back to that wasgij!! I’ve already been online, looking for the next one to tackle!!
Don’t forget: HOCHANDA.com tomorrow. 2-4 pm, Stamps. 6pm Groovi. I think you will love these designs.
Love and hugs
