It seems that change is inevitable – whether we want it or not. Sometimes the change is from within ourselves, but other times the change is from external forces. I think that a large part of lifes stess is due to my inability to accept change. Now, that being said – I think that I handle change fairly well, up to a certain point. I think the easiest change to work through is internal change – after all, that is the change I have the most control over. It is the external forces that cause me the most problems.
I am in a job field where changes are happening daily – rapidly – sometimes without any notice. This makes it highly stressful at work. What was always black and white now suddenly has a lot of gray areas.
Can someone please send me the rules for the gray areas???
Last night was Knit Night at Friends – I had not been there in several weeks – boy, did I miss those women! I broke my “yarn rules” last night as well. I got some lovely Koigu to cast on for EZ’s BSJ. This will be my very first EZ project – wow, huh? So, as I cast on my 160 stitches and began knitting I was so excited! Reading each step – counting my stitches – not rushing ahead to see what is next – relaxation just washed over me. Listening to all the conversations around me – Sue’s excitement of a brand new granddaughter, Ann’s work woes, AnnMarie’s work stories, looking at the pictures from Ruby’s daughter’s recent wedding – is it any wonder that I love this group so much? That and the fact that there was delicious food last night – Sue brought a “celebration” cake from Coldstone and another knitter – who I did not know – brought a fresh blueberry pie. The pie was divine!
I was up early this morning – I colored my hair, drank some coffee, played a bit on Ravelry – and now I am finishing up to head to work.
It will be a get away day for me…. I am going up north with Ken to his sister’s cottage in Charlevoix. It is a ‘family get together’ – his parents will be there, and most of his siblings – I am sharing a room with his sister, Sue. I even told Ken about the Fiber Fest that is going on at Castle Farms – to which he replied – “well, we’ll have to go”! I am hoping to see Susie there as well on Saturday. Now, I am more than a little nervous about this weekend – meeting all (or almost all) the family???? But, what on earth should I think about a man who wants to go to a fiber festival?????
Have a great weekend everyone!
