Another mad Monday, where I'm already sick of this week and it just started. I'll admit, I splurged a bit and bought myself lunch, wore a new dress even though it was kind of too cold for it, and came home to read blogs and attempt to catch up on the growing list of want-to-read.
I need to learn to say 'no' more and stop confusing mania with actual energy. Stop taking on more than I can handle, finish the projects I've already started, and stop shopping. I'm trying to figure out how to condense somethings and take some off my plate.
Speaking of shopping - the dress. A new-to-me brand, and a new-but-second hand piece. I'm terribly in love and wish I had better skills at completing actual clothing. I want this dress a thousand times over in different fabrics. The 'grey' material is actually very thin stripes, so I've got triple stripes!
I came across a pile of quotations this weekend. I guess at some point I cut them out and meant to do something with them. So I think I'll share them this week. I have no idea if they're actually credited to the author I have listed or not, but they gave me little things to think about:
"Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. And never hope more than you work."
