Thanks for all your encouragement. I have listened gratefully. I am convinced that it is my sinuses that are causing me all this misery. After my painful experience with the Neti pot, my head started to drain. The last few days the headache has increased and decreased with intensity during the day. I can't really figure out why.
I am pretty sure that my sinuses are not happy with my shenanigans.....i.e. weaving with dusty selvedge.
That and a late frost, and allergies, may have tipped my nasal cavities over the edge.
I have been cleaning loopers, with a mask on, so we can make enough kits to get through this busy season.
Today was the beginning of my new schedule. Usually I am out the door every morning about 8:30, on my way to the studio, which is about 8 miles from my house. I work all day, and when I get home at 4:30, I take Roy for his walk....and mine. I used to go after dinner, but as the days have gotten shorter, I have tried to go before dinner.
But now the time has changed, and it is going to be dark when I get home at that time.
So today, we got up and went for a morning walk. Starting today, we will walk every morning, and I will get to the studio about 10am, and stay til 5 or 5:30.
One thing I noticed today......I have a whole lot more energy walking in the morning. The challenge is going to be keeping it up as it gets colder and colder.
I took myself for a little drive this afternoon, it was such a sunny, gorgeous day.
I am particularly listening to my body, and to the reminder that, once again, I am pushing myself pretty hard.
I am making a plan to change things up in ONE MONTH.
After the "big show" on Nov 18th, 19th, and 20th, and THEN the Country Christmas Open House on the first weekend in December, I am going to do something different.
Do I know what?
I only know that I will figure it out. Take suggestions. Brainstorm it. Sleep on it. Mull it over. Ruminate. Come up with it.
Times change. Things evolve. Sometimes you just have have to be open to what could happen.
I know one thing, I am always learning. I guess that's a good thing.
Roy was so confused after walking 4 miles first thing in the morning, that when I came home this afternoon, he had moved my sneaker from the kitchen door, to the couch.
There's a message here.
