time , frustration, and overwhelmed? is this you?
hi folks, as the storm passed us and we are back to normal in this part of pa, i have to say last years early winter storm was much worse,, i had no trees to clean up other than a small branch here and there, but nothing much at all, which i was very grateful, now back to my to do list around my home and farm, and things i wanted to finish before it got cold, wellllll its going to have to wait, as much as dont want to look at a half outside wall painted, and the rest of it begging to get a coat , its going to have to wait till warmer weather,,, i have to say it left me frustrated, and overwhelmed,, a small leak on my trailer that at this point i thought i had chaulk it to death, well no so,, i knew were in the roof it was coming from,, so i got back on the roof yesterday and rechaulk it again, and now its a wait to see what happens,,,, along with a some of the double wide doors at the farm needed to be more secure, so off to lowes , and working on them,, i had to learn what was more important to take care of first, and doors, roofs, and my job well they come before painting ,,, i was frustrated , and a bit overwhelmed not being able to finish what i set out to do,, so the woodcarving of a reindeer i started three weeks ago is looking at me now and i can hear it say , when are you going to finish me? answer i dont know, one thing i am learning, and should always listen to, is if i feel like working on a project, do it, and dont wait,, and just do it,, i dont normally work on sundays,, there is a project i just had to finish, i running into a deadline, and for the first time in a very long time, i got started on this project, and you know what , i dont feel guilty,, but relieved, i dont ever think god wanted us to be overwhelmed, so i worked for about 3 hours today, yes after church, and got a good start,, i didnt want to work all afternoon, but now, i do not feel overwhelm but i have the feeling that yes it will get done by the deadline,, and that will give me a good nights rest for sure,,, so life gets in the way sometimes , but you know what, it makes the time i can carve even more special, cause when i carve, i know that it takes me away from all the crazy stuff life throws at us, even if its just for a short while, keep carving folks, and i will keep working towards, finishing what i started
