I always love the inspiration to be had around other quilters, not to mention the fun time visiting with great people and stuffing my face with awesome pot-luck food. It felt particularly nice to go yesterday. I think I was in need of a therapeutic escape.
There have been some summers in the past where I have tried to do or expect too much and put myself on the verge of a nervous breakdown. This summer I made a vow to try to just roll with life. Not let the house get to me, try not to nag the kids too much, not try to “get stuff done”, and just live in the moment. So far, I think I’m doing fairly well most of the time. We still have our ‘moments’, but I don’t want to be guilty of wishing the summer away. I have to constantly remind myself there will be time for routines and schedules and “getting stuff done” later in the fall. What are your favorite summer
coping mechanisms enjoyment strategies?
Thanks so much for the Purple-y quilt love! Another casualty of summer is my computer time, so my personal responses are suffering. I’m so grateful for all of your comments and sorry not to respond more individually. Thanks for your understanding. You’re all the best.
