Last Mountain Lake - 11

Last Mountain Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada

Had a great weekend.  We worked in the yard on Saturday, cleaning up.  On Sunday we went up to the Valley, as it’s affectionately known, and checked out the market gardens and the Snack Shack.  I experienced french fries with sour cream, bacon bits, and green onions for the first time.  Not sure if it beats poutine or not.  Might have to try their poutine next time I’m there.

Today it’s a dark and dreary day out there, with intermittent showers.  I plan to spend my day indoors hooking African Dream.

I also want to finish going through my gmail account.  No, I haven’t finished yet.  I got half way and then stalled for some reason.  I think it was taking my online courses that stalled me.  But they’re over, so I have time to do this again.

I have a lot of reading to catch up on.  So in-between hooking stints I’ll read.

One of the books I’m reading is Rod Judkin’s “The Art of Creative Thinking”.  I’m taking it slow, because, well, there’s a lot to think about in it.  I read a bit, rebel, decide he’s right, and move on.  I think I’m a reluctant artist.  I mean I love the results, but not the time it takes to get there.  I’m impatient.  But once I sit down to do it and get started I am totally absorbed in the activity of creating and making something.  I love the feeling of accomplishment when I’m finished.

How about you?  How do you feel at the start of a project?  The middle or doing part? When you finish it?
