A pattern seems to be emerging..... (Me-Stuff)
After only a few days of 'Summer Break', I'm beginning to see a loose structure emerging. Each day is broken into three phases..... sort of.
1) The things I get accomplished to satisfy my somewhat stunted work ethic. I must do something... usually substantial to my eye... or suffer internal guilt for 'wasting' time. On Monday, I prepped and painted the whole front porch... that sort of thing.
2) The artsy/creative phase. This might entail doing something at the jewelry bench, or perhaps working with my image library. The last few days I have been a bit dried up in this area. My muse is sulking, or away on vacation, or drunk in a bar someplace.
3) The flat on my butt relaxing phase. THIS one I have well covered. Lounging over coffee in the morning, slothing with a book in the evening, Facebooking at any hour.... I have the whole 'relaxing and recharging' thing well in hand. If the couch was more comfortable to me, I could see it getting out of hand quickly.
One thing to add: Ibuprofen has become a regular breakfast item now. Apparently, productively getting things done can be painful. I'll have to be sure and keep moderation on my mind.
