I am a goal oriented person. While other people notice eye colors and facial expressions, I calculate how many steps to go until a task is complete.
A few weeks ago, I set a writing goal for myself - submit something, somewhere, every two weeks. Saturday is d-day (deadline day), so that means I have been staring at my monitor most of the day... polishing a finished piece, starting a new one.
Fortunately, I have a hands-on project that I can turn to when my brain needs a rest. It is a crocheted little acorn bag that I found on this blog. I have no idea what I will use it for, but right now that doesn't matter. It is providing a necessary mental vacation. Besides... it is just so cute!
This is what my little acorn looks like so far...
As you can see, there have been quite a few "vacations" today.
I did reach my goal though. An envelope is ready for the mailbox... prayed over, prayed about, ready to go.
A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps. Proverbs 16:9
