A place for knitting, stitching, and crazy family antics.
Today's post brought to you in bullet form.........
Baby Girl is officially double digits.
It was cloudy for most of the day.
Very little crafting is getting done. There is a bug going around that is laying up a lot of us. Went to a wedding shower tonight and more than half of us were hacking. Hoping to pick up the needles tomorrow but not making any promises.....
For Today Looking out my window...right now it's raining I am thinking... how I need to slow down. So far in 2018 we have been to TX in Jan, Palm Coast in Feb, and NC in March. Plus we just had #1 Son and the IO stay this wknd. It's been a ride and I need to get off for a bit. I am thankful...for my Baby Girl. She is my travel partner. She is a kind soul. She tells her dad like it is! I am wearing... a grey t-shirt nightgown with a coffee design on it. I am creating...since we've been traveling so much, my scarf has come out to play, but not much has been done on it, maybe a few more rows. I'm really sick of the tans and golds and want to get to the main colors that I love. HOWEVER, my 13 y/o nephew still wants me to make him some socks. I brought it up when we were in NC and I gave him an out if he didnt want them. Told him I didnt want to be *that aunt* that makes things nobody wants to wear. He still wants them. Made me all warm and fuzzy. I am watching...re…
I don't need a therapist to tell me I have hoarding tendancies. I know this about myself and I fight to keep it in check. This means I will forever be organizing my stuff. Since #1 Son moved out, I've gone thru his old space, kept what he wants to save and purged the rest. I've opened some boxes that have been packed away for almost two years. Half of the stuff I still wanted, the rest was given to a good friend who could use what was left.
It's a process.
But I feel I'm s-l-o-w-l-y making some. And in the most mundane ways, too. One way was to finally decide that I will never have a yard sale. I hate them and I never make enough money with them. The eBay business I tried to make work took up a lot of time with little profit so I ended that as well.
*but that's money I can use toward a car/house/teenager/travel/etc!*
OR it can be donated as a tax write off and I can move forward with less stuff.
I'm not going to lie, that decision was a struggle. …
For Today Looking out my window... it was surprisingly chilly for us today. It never got out of the 60s with a cold wind all day. Last week we were 87. Today I needed a jacket all day. This may sound nuts to most of you, but if you've ever lived in the south, esp Florida, it's not unusual to start the day with the heat and by 3 needing the a/c on. Trust me, I'm not complaining, it was just a surprise. I am thinking... how much I really like these daybook entries. I've started this post a few times now, but my thoughts were all over the map. The daybook helps me to focus on just one topic at a time. I am thankful...for my health. Just had a physical today, and other than the dreaded word "arthritis", I'm in good shape. All my numbers are where they are supposed to be. Except what the scale says. That is my only problem. And the dr doesnt want to say too much abt it since everything else is good. I am 51 and at this point it can go either way. I …
