first day of the staycation

Boy… I cleaned my office furniture today and it took me 4 hours or so..I dusted and cleaned everywhere, particularly my coffee station and the desk. Lots of paper is dumped, old projects and scars are let go, and space for new ones are opened….

I also decluttered my emails; I have deleted quite a bit but I mostly archived. I do not know how the heck I am going to find particular ones, but I have done it anyhow considering that I may one day need them. Now my inbox is relax, I do not get an reminder about my inbox being almost full, and I feel good about dumping lots of stuff. Well done πŸ™‚ Considering the fact that I have also cleaned my personal email account in the last week or so, that means one task is done and decluttering started! Yay!! πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to start with the home πŸ™‚

I then left for shopping. It was nice to walk in the crispy weather. I bought a number of scrap fabric, mostly of cheerful colours. I was so excited when I bought them, but now I think as if I am wasting time, money, and hope on sewing. See, the problem is I could not sew not oneΒ thing so far. Nada. Zilch. I tried two blouses and they both are messed; I never knew sewing a neck could be this difficult. Darn…..I tried a dish cloth that is also messed up (cannot even stitch straight, my friends)… Β I am losing my hope time to time… I am in desperate need of doing something, something with my sewing machine…If I do see one done, I will find some confidence I am sure.Β Alas, it is no where to be found….Β Not yet.. I have not given up yet, but I really need to come up with something nice quite soon. Please wish me luck.

Anyways my friends; I am cranky, yet I must be excited. My staycation for two weeks has started today! Who knows what the tomorrow will bring? πŸ™‚

  1. Well done! You have cleaned the office and sorted the mail. That is far more than I have done today. You even tried to sew something. Awesome. I also have a sewing machine that I dream of one day using again. I used to sew but seem to have lost the urge. I loved the process, though, even when the product was not great. It’s an exercise in enjoying the moment. πŸ™‚

    1. you have such a positive attitude towards sewing πŸ™‚ I loved it. i think it is time that I accept the fact that it takes time to do it properly and I should just keep trying and learning. One day I may start sew πŸ™‚

    1. what a great idea! I will check the courses around. I agree that decluttering emails is not easy, but I try. I archived the most of my work emails (so it was easier than sorting and deciding which one to keep and which one to dump), but that too felt good so I am quite motivated to keep things in track πŸ™‚

  2. I’m a beginner on the sewing machine. I made some Pajama shorts from a pattern. They aren’t pretty because I can’t see straight yet either but they are very comfortable.
