Are you doing the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge? How's it going for you so far?
One thing I've noticed is that if I work on a post late at night, say between 10:00 and midnight, I tend to get a second wind.
Great for writing. Bad for sleeping.
Once I get that second wind, I am wired and then have trouble downshifting and relaxing my mind into sleep mode. Many years ago, I got an entire family history book written that way, taking full advantage of my second wind and working well into the wee hours. I was a lot younger then.
Looking back, I've probably created the majority of blog posts during the late night. It's quiet and there are no distractions, the work day is (usually) done, and I feel like I have time to bring together a post. But I'm not someone who can bang something up in 15 minutes. I've got to think about it and play with it a while. Time passes...one hour...90 minutes...
For about the past year, though, my late night routine has changed to involve winding down with yoga, stretching and breathing and laughing along to a few minutes of late night TV. It's a nice stress reliever at the end of the day, and I look forward to it.
I visited my sister today and helped her with getting her Christmas tree up. It still needs lights and ornaments, but it is up. We got sidetracked several times during the process, in a good way.
She had asked if I'd bring her some mini-quilts or wall hangings to display at her house.
She recently moved and is decorating her walls, as well as her halls.
So I brought her a few to choose from, namely those you see here. Some older, some newer.
I thought she'd pick one or two, but she wants to put them all up. I am honored.
Guess I'll just have to make more!
