Title-less blab

After a lazy weekend, I’m having a bit of trouble getting into the whole “Monday” deal.  I really, truly do hate Mondays.  I never can seem to switch gears!  Even if I work all weekend, either in the house, yard, both, or spend the whole weekend running, Mondays come with a shock that causes me to move slow and think randomly….arg!

I carved stamps this weekend.  That was my big accomplishment for a whole 48 hour period. LOL  It was great big fun, though.  If you had asked me before I tried it if I thought I’d like carving stamps, I would’ve said “Probably not – too much sitting still and nit-picky details.”  But, wow, would I have been wrong!  Not about it requiring sitting still, great attention to detail, and patience, but that I would enjoy it.  I spent almost 2 hours on one stamp!  (And it turned out lovely, by the way:)  My ability to have a lazy weekend was noticed by my kids.  My son asked me if I was ok,  and my daughter pointed it out last night and gave me a round of applause! LOL!  I ususally do have a hard time sitting still.  The length of a movie is about all I can take unless I’m ill or have worked myself to near death.  But I have found a way to allow my body to rest and keep my mind totally busy – stamp carving.  The only problem now is keeping enough carving medium around and having something to carve.  I haven’t found a way to enjoy finding an image to carve, by the way.

Much to do this week, though, and I want to get my run in before it gets hot out there, so adios!
