I am now on week 4 of lying about the house in an effort to recover from an “asthma exacerbation” brought about by high humidity and a respiratory virus. Basically I’ve been living at levels 1, 2, and 3 on the “Pain Scale” I adapted from the Samn-Perelli 7pt. Fatigue Scale.
Too Tired to Read! Don’t Want to Watch T.V.!
While being in the state of “Extremely tired, very difficult to concentrate,” let alone move around and do the simplest of chore, yet highly susceptible to boredom, what have I been doing? Pinning. It is my favorite “brain-dead” activity. All I have to move are my fingers and my eyes, and as someone who loves visual imagery that is pleasure enough.
What Have I Done on My Pinterest Boards!
- I have pinned from my feed adding richness to existing boards.
- I have followed boards from people who have followed me.
- I have weeded (eliminated pins from) boards that were excessively large. (This is the easiest activity.)
- I have eliminated some boards by dividing their content up between other similar boards (I am so ready for spring!).
- I have added a few new boards.

Why I Love Pinterest:
As I already said, I am a very, visually oriented person, and so I love feasting my eyes on the beautiful images.
Better yet, Pinterest is eliminating my need for additional file cabinet space. No more clipping and filing writing information, historical references, recipes, and teaching, craft, and holiday ideas.
And, it’s just a great place to collect things I love, all without having to take up physical space collecting them!
I think it has saved my sanity in these long boring days when even journaling felt like too much. Pop in on any of the links and take a peek. (Oh, and feel free to pin whatever you want; my boards are about sharing.)
