Freedom

Oh, how I love the taste of it. That's what I got yesterday - a little, teeny taste. But it was enough. For now.

I dropped Malayna off at preschool on Monday morning. {She cries when I leave, but I think it was a little less yesterday. Friday was not good. Her teachers tell me she's okay the rest of the day. And she's happy at the end of the day when I pick her up.}

Anyway, after I dropped her off I came home to an empty house, which felt really strange. Her toys were still lying around where she had left them, and that made me a bit sad for a minute. Then I looked at the clock and realized that I had two whole hours until I had to pick her up again. It almost made me freeze and not do anything, for fear that I'd chose the wrong thing. {You know - like when you have too much to do so you just do nothing? No? It's just me?}

I got a cup of coffee and headed up to my {super messy} studio. I suddenly had a great idea for a 20" clock and actually sat down and worked on it. What a great feeling - to act on an idea immediately! I didn't finish, but I did get a lot done. For me, that's 3/4 of the battle - sometimes it's hard to make myself go to my studio and create something.

I can't show you anything yet, but I will tell you the idea came to me while I was thinking of this new stage in mine and Malayna's life. I'll be sure to post a photo when it's finished.
