Isn’t it amazing how everyday life seems to prioritize your day.
What do I mean by that? Well, when I was working – there were only so many hours in the day and I would find myself moving things to be scheduled later, when I might have a bit more time. After all, life seemed to prioritize my day. Work filled a large number of hours – and while I had a fairly flexible schedule, it still filled my time. Then, once I got home in the evening, there would be a large number of hours spent helping my teenagers with their homework – now I use the term “help” loosely here – maybe it is more accurate to say that I kept my teenagers on task with their homework!
Meals quite often were of the “easy to prepare, ready quickly” variety. Which are not always the most inexpensive to prepare.
Laundry was another item I spent a large quantity of time on! I seriously believe that dirty laundry procreates at night, making more dirty laundry. There was always laundry in the basket – always!
I can happily share with you one of the benefits of not working is that laundry is no longer the bane of my existance and meal preparation has greatly improved!
Finding blessings in life has also greatly improved!
And, Alice and I are still on the ‘honeymoon’ – here is what I worked on last night while watching “Dancing with the Stars”. I know – Monday nights leave much to be desired on the television.
This is some truly lovely Merino that I got from Rose – it is spinning up nicely. I have a full bobbin and about a third of a second done. I will work on filling that bobbin this afternoon and hopefully be plying this evening.
Oh – and I knit some on my traveling rib socks and have almost completed the second Snow on Cedars Mitt. Photo’s coming soon!
Here is to hoping that you all find a few extra minutes in your day to think about the blessings you have in life! Have a great day everyone!
