This is MV Cerego's compass. It's a cool old thing, set on gimbals (swivelly, ball thingies that make it level no matter how the boat is sitting) and I love it. I also thought it was an appropriate symbol of how I'm feeling at the moment.
We are living on the boat - we've been here for about five weeks or so, but I'm still not settled. We finally have a boat builder working in our forward cabin, building our bed and storage units, but in the meantime Hubby and I have been sleeping on the couches in the kid's playroom. I'm getting over that very quickly.
Because we are missing the room and storage that our cabin will give us, I haven't been able to sort a sewing area out properly. And I've been so busy moving, sorting, organising tenants etc, etc that I haven't had much time to quilt anyway.
I let all obligations and deadlines go so that they wouldn't stress me out. But on the downside of that is now I feel a bit 'drifty' or focusless.
And what do you write on a blog, or say in a podcast, when you have been doing very little and your thoughts are all awry? It didn't help that I had no WiFi - at least that's mostly sorted now.
So I'm starting with baby steps. Like writing this today. A small blog post, with no real planning behind it, just to re acquaint my fingers with the keyboard.
I'll be back again soon.
