AT HOME

Spent the last few days mostly on my own, at home. Quietly working for a large order (one hundred and forty-four pieces to go to California) plus a couple of smaller ones. Keep on trying to simplify and create room for what is really important. Tendered the house plants, finished some bits in the new kitchen which I had been postponing since September for lack of time (still need to make the lampshades and mustn't forget to clean the windows), listened to new music and the silence and the rain falling outside. Went for long walks with the dog and stroke the cats, watched birds flying everyday and some beautiful end-of-the-day skies. Wrote a couple of letters to far away friends, spent sometime drawing and writing thoughts that have been in my mind, drank cups of hot chocolate in the afternoons and had early nights.  I simply enjoyed and it feels peaceful and certain and good!
Passei os últimos dias comigo mesma, em casa. A trabalhar sossegada para uma encomenda grande (cento e quarenta e quatro peças para a California) e umas quantas mais pequenas. Continuo a tentar simplificar e criar lugar para o que é de facto importante. Cuidei das plantas da casa, fiz uns pequenos acabamentos na nova cozinha que vinha a adiar desde Setembro por falta de tempo (ainda preciso de fazer os candeeiros e não me posso esquecer de limpar os vidros), ouvi música nova e o silêncio e a chuva a cair lá fora.  Dei grandes passeios com o cão e afaguei os gatos, vi pássaros a voar todos os dias e bonitos céus de final-de-dia. Escrevi cartas para amigos que se encontram longe, passei algum tempo a desenhar e a escrever pensamentos que me passam pela cabeça, bebi chávenas de chocolate quente pelas tardes e deitei-me cedo. Simplesmente apreciei e senti-me calma e simples e segura!
