Pissing Away a Sunday

I am feeling very uninspired lately.  Maybe it’s from the weeks of rain, or just a spring funk, but it kind of sucks.

I woke up today with a completely free schedule and I decided to keep it that way.  I told myself that I would not do anything I could not get excited about.  That meant no chores and no running errands.  I ended up spending most of the day in my pajamas and I think that might have been exactly what I needed to pull me out of my funk.  The funny thing is, once I let myself off the hook, I did actually get a few responsible things done (in my pajamas of course).

I made a giant pot of stock for the week using several of my herbs and it turned out great.

Normally for stock I just use some bay leaves and maybe some rosemary, but today I got a little crazy and added mint, sage, oregano, and thyme to the mix.

I also repurposed an old canvas print.

I bought this Christmas print for about five dollars to spruce up my desk for the holidays.  I didn’t know what to do with it after Christmas so I decided to make my own funky art.

First I spray painted it red, but the original design showed through, so I covered it with black.  I wanted a street art feel to the canvas so I spray painted some stencils on to it and then finished by misting the whole thing with white, red, and blue spray paint.

It’s not exactly a masterpiece, but it matches the decor in my kitchen and I have the perfect place to hang it so I am calling it a success.

I was not planning on running today since I was not going to do anything I didn’t really really want to do, but around 6pm I realized that I really really wanted to run.

The run started great, but I actually started to get a stomach ache, like acid reflux.  Has anyone else ever gotten acid reflux from running?  Very uncool.

Now I am sitting outside by my fire pit and I think I might actually feel like myself again, or at least not like the incredibly boring person I have been feeling like lately.

    I’m glad you are feeling better – whatever you need to do to feel like your self again. The running /acid reflux thing isn’t uncommon. I deal with that often, it comes and goes. I miss you – maybe I (we?!?) will come see you again soon 🙂

    Like what you’ve done, and know what you mean about the dragging moss of old Sundays and the trail of clouds..
