Nahhh...I didn't really run away, but there are days when I want to. I don't talk about it lots here in this space. Some things are personal and just better kept to oneself and within the family unit , ya know what I'm saying? I know I have mentioned before I have a daughter with Asperger's Syndrome, better known as an Aspie. She.does.not.like.that. Days can be hard and long. Although, with age it does get easier in some ways.Then with age like the teen years it gets harder. Boy, I sound like a total contradiction! We're on a little learning curve here with our aspie girl and I feel like I have been talked to death,'cause that is what they do. TALK. A LOT.
Anyway, I did run a bit. I took Lydia to her Keeper's of the Faith Club.They are learning to do a simple quilt, which for an 8 year old is really not simple. This fabric is from my stash and I had grand plans of making a quilt myself. It's Anna Maria Horner's Folksy Flannel and it is dreamy. Ahem....nice day out means girls do not wish to quilt. They want to play outside. So, I sat down and worked on the quilt and took my mind off things. I breathed and refocused. It felt awful good!
Then I dropped Lydia off at music lessons and contemplated supper. I contemplated all the way to the pizza parlor. Yes indeedy, I ordered pizzas and fries! 'Cause sometimes a french fry will make all your troubles go away. Now I feel greasy and full of fat. But I feel happy. Little quilting, little bad food. Yup--it's all good I say!
And tonight me and my sweet aspie will chew the fat a bit more, which means turn the same dang topic over and over and over....if you have an aspie ya know what I'm saying here. Then after, I may just zone out and knit a good spell or read more of The Hobbit. Gotta remember God is still on His throne and life really is good!
