Mijn energie keert terug // My energy returns
Finally SPRING has arrived in the Netherlands!! We had one good day last week, but promptly followed by an autumn-day.... Today I will open our gardendoors for the first time this year! Let's see how my furry babies will react to that.
These last four weeks were rather rough for me. All that time I fought an awful cold that just wouldn't go away - and still quite isn't - but since last weekend I have slept a little better and is my energy level improving accordingly. I can vaccuum the livingroom again without having to pause twice or going to faint.
I've also spend some time behind my sewing machine again and actually put together two of the first borders. It's a labor-intensive job for just an inch of border, but it's so much better than a plain one. Those are next and more than enough to my taste. Last week I cut all the fabric for the other borders and blocks and drawn the blocks for one of the other borders too. Those are a lot bigger with few pieces, so that will go a lot faster.
The rest of the time - when I spend all of my energy - I'm mostly at the table puzzling or reading. Last week I made a 1500 piece puzzle and now I'm working on a 1000 piece one. Henk and I usually puzzle together, but the ones I'm working on now have too many people in them and Henk doesn't like those anyway. The next one is for next week, has 2000 pieces and a lot of people too, so I will be working on that one alone too I'll guess.
And like that I'll conjure the days together, untill I have enough energy again to go out and do more. I haven't been outside the house for weeks now and it's starting to annoy me. I want to go out and drive our car, go away, do something. Just have to sleep a couple of nights a bit better and than I will, I hope....
