So I slept a bit more and I spun yarn, very relaxed and soothing and I read (while spinning, because you know, multitasking is good..lol) and I finished all the august clubs for shipping on Monday and ofcourse prepped the update of tonight. I did it all without stressing or deadlines or pressure put on by myself, like I normally do. It made a huge difference to my state of mind. Sometimes I just need to force myself to do things “naturally” , by instinct, in the moment and not dwell on things that I feel I “have to” do.. ”Have to do”-lists can go on for ever and ever and be very very long and…terrifying. The longer my “Have to do” list became, the more stifled and paralysed I felt. I think that was the main problem. It became very tiring and not because I actually did a lot on my “Have to do “-list, but more so thinking of all the things I HAD TO do…I felt a bit like the writer with writers block, staring at a white page and not being able to get out of the stifling horror I created myself. Well, lists can be good of course, but it’s a bit like thinking too much about tomorrow and not seeing the beauty that happens all around us today. Again, I think I just needed to kick myself and just do what I normally do and that is: DO STUFF and not think too much about it. My inner Chaos theory fan just couldn’t cope I guess with all those clean and tidy “have to do”-lists so I am back to spontaneous , chaotic me and I feel much better.
Doesn’t mean all is well on the IxCHeL fibre farm though: Our gorgeous bunny Hilde who is such a beautiful grey bunny with a wonderful nature, developed infected eyes, so off to the vet I went and on closer inspection of the right eye, we discovered there may be more than just an infection going on: a little bump that she may have gotten scratching her eye or ....a tumour on her eyeball, which would mean her losing her eye ! (insert very sad face emoticon). The verdict is not in yet, so every 4 hours I have to rinse her eyes, put an ointment in and massage gently. She is a real trooper and undergoes all the treatments like a true champion. Her left eye is clearing up already and her right eye is definitely getting better but there is still a little bump visible. We are going back to the vet next Wednesday. I will keep you posted.
Let's hope she can look this gorgeous again very soon
