Can't get motivated today!!

G'day. Do you ever have one of those days where you just can't be bothered doing anything? I hope so, because I don't want to think it's just me...

It's my day off work and I am in a funk. I just can't get my act together for the life of me. The sun is shining, the sky is a beautiful blue, much better than the cold wet days we have been having lately. I should be outside doing something, but I don't know what.

The back garden areas are now all finished. There are no weeds to be seen. Yeah... I can't do anything out the front until we get a digger in to dig up the whole front yard, mainly to level it out. Our new front fence is not yet finished, why I don't know. The company doing it hasn't been sighted since last week. Until that is completed, the plans for my front garden have been put on hold. I have even been looking at some of the lawn area in the back, wondering if I could make another smallish garden centred around a bird bath.But, that's probably making more work for myself. 

I can't even motivated myself to do any sewing, or use my new, you beaut embroidery machine today.I am never like this. I relish my days off to do all the thing I love, like gardening and sewing or reading a good book etc, but it has all gone out the window for some reason. 

If I am to be honest, I think I know what the problem is, it's my work, my place of paid employment. I have to go back there tomorrow and face a rather unpleasant task, one that I have dealt with in the past, but one that is never easy. I was laying in bed early hours this morning, trying to rehearse what I was going to say and what was the best way of saying it. This is never easy when another persons feelings are involved. I still haven't found the right words of what I need to say and I suspect I won't get much sleep tonight either.

On a lighter note, the pansy's in the picture are just beautiful, they are a giant pansy and one of my favourites. They brighten my day just looking at them.The ceramic watering can is one I made and painted many moons ago, a craft that I don't do anymore. Take care. Liz... 


  1. Love the pansies. Sorry to hear about your funk. Hope your Tuesday at work wasn't to bad.

  2. Pretty pansies! Hope you are just sitting in the sunshine with a cup of tea and not worrying about trying to do something. Sometimes your brain and body just need some down time...

  3. I miss pansies...they are the prettiest flowers. Hope you moved past your funk and on to brighter things. Sometimes just looking at a gorgeous blue sky and contemplating nothing are the perfect things to make you smile.

  4. hi Liz,

    You won't believe it but all the way across the world, I bought pansies today to put in my pot. They do well here in the fall, and I guess they like spring in Australia! Hope all is well :)

  5. Pansies are everywhere here too, all the garden shops are selling them, so bright and cheerful.
