Just Plain Tired

Do you have those days too? When you feel heavy, your legs are like lead and it's just exhausting to go through the day? I have a day like this today, and it drives me nuts. It reminds me very much of the time before my surgery, and I really don't want to go there again. I'm just plain tired, and I think I will give in and hang out in the hammock for 30 minutes. Hopefully, my energy will come back then. Not very exciting things on the horizon though - have to pick up Kaefer from school and then it's straight to the dentist for her appointment. Which for me means waiting... What do you usually do when you have to wait somewhere? I read a lot, and I hope I can do that this afternoon.

I want to share a Halloween card with you that I recently listed in my Etsy shop:

Usually I'm not a big fan of skulls and skeletons, but when I saw some scrapbook paper covered with these goofy looking skulls I couldn't resist. Making the card was mega-easy, and I don't know why exactly I like this one so very much. Perhaps because the skulls look so goofy and funny, not a bit scary. I was glad that I had this small wooden coffin and the skeletal hand to use as photo props - I enjoy putting some "spice" into my pictures like this. Taking photos of my items for Etsy is a completely new thing for me, and I enjoy learning about how to take pictures of my items to get people wanting to look at them. Thrift stores and yard sales are perfect places for finding photo props.

Okay, I'm going to the hammock now, hoping that Geeda hangs out there already and keeps me company.

Maybe it is our weather because I'm having a day like that too. Nothing like a good book on a day like this.

Oh yes, I know that feeling of bone weary tiredness...as a matter of fact, I'm feeling it today. I think for me some of it has to do with the change in weather...very dull, cloudy and "heavy" and a nap would be ideal. If I had a hammock that is exactly where I'd be!

I love this card Carola...so quirky and fun and yes, having good props for the photos is a huge plus on etsy!

Enjoy the hammock time...and find some quiet reading while you wait (that's what I do too...always have something to settle into while waiting).

I know that feeling... sometimes I think we just need to listen to our body... unfortunately for me, my body is not adhering to the responsibilities on my work calendar.

Yes...I have days when my energy lags. The card is wonderful...such fun skeletons. Very cute.

I'm glad Geeda is still spending her days in your yard. And I hope you're feelng better. I know how it feels, because most of my days are like that. I tell people that's why I get the big bucks. (I'm on a disability pension until I go onto Old Age Pension in December.)
Your Hallowe'en card looks like fun, and your photo props are perfect!
