Today has been a hard slog. Not for any particular reason. I am just tired and feel like I am wading through treacle.
Sometimes it means I need to listen to my body and have a rest. Other times I get more energised if I do something physical. It's made me realise how much joy I get from creating or transforming something with my hands, whether that is painting, or gardening or sewing.
Now my dilemma this evening is should I oil the garden chairs, or take Murdock for a walk on the beach. Both are important, and both will be enjoyable but the first I only need to do once, and the second will need doing again tomorrow. So, do I put off the dog walk or do I find a way to do both?
