The weekend.

Saturday has come and it is raining, really raining. We need it! Soft, quiet rain - perfect for sleeping, resting, being quiet. Started the day off right, went for a run. It is so peaceful running in weather (rain, snow), good for my soul. Close to religious for me. Same with running when the sun is coming up. Now I am sitting here drinking a most wonderful cup of coffee with a quiet house ( hubby is at work, my daughter is still asleep and my son is in NH). My house is clean, not much laundry to be done, such a treat! Shhhhh. :)

Here is my dilemma. I am struggling with feeling like I NEED to be at my table creating. But I go down, sit, play with my beads and nothing happens and I feel guilty, I feel as though I have all of this wonderfulness just waiting, waiting for me and I am not there. I am trying to give myself permission to not feel guilty. Yet my hubby asks "when are you going to sell something?" I have my Artfire up, working on an Etsy, working on networking.  Guilt comes back.....I know that my stash is wonderful (read big) and I should be doing more. Please understand that I love to bead, it is peaceful and good for my soul. I feel so relaxed and good after I get time to bead. Hence, my dilemma........kind of a vicious circle. I am going to try very hard not to feel guilty today and give myself permission to do nothing, except what I want to do. What do you think? Sound like a plan?

May your weekend be wonderfully filled doing what you want to do. Take time to be good to you! ( I am listening to my own words)

Ok, went to the mall with the daughter, shopping, lunch at The Cheesecake Factory, then to the thrift shop! Score!!!!  So far, so good.

We all go through such times, when all you do is play with the beads. I look through my magazines... for inspiration... such periods are good for the soul... Rejoice that all your chores are done, house is clean! Hooray! Enjoy the weekend. Should you need more beads, check out the discount coupon that I have posted on my blog it is good through July 31.

Isn't this rain great? Totally agree about guilt - Moms always feel we need to be DOING SOMETHING when we get some random idle time :-) Sometimes the best inspiration comes from doing something completely different (have a book you've been dying to read) and then the bead ideas come puring out of you!

I've been going through the same thing! Hang in there - the muse will come back!
