I Want To Sit Like An Old Lady And Knit All Day
Life has gotten in the way of my knitted bliss. Knitting is like therapy for me, and I need MUCH more therapy than I have been getting lately. I have been running around like a wild turkey—trying to meet work deadlines and trying to finish commissions for my knitted boot cuffs (deadlines tend to take away the calmness of knitting for me). I am blessed beyond means, so I know that I shouldn’t complain about poor wittle me who feels overwhelmed… (said in my best baby voice).
I am actually happy and at my best when I am overwhelmed and busy—it makes me get down to work and get ‘er done. It is just that there has been some unexpected crap thrown my way lately; crap that makes me stop for a second and wallow in self-pity. All will be well—this I know. I am a pretty optimistic person most of the time, and I’ve always had a very strong faith in a higher power.
Anyway, since I am wallowing, I thought I would take a moment to dream of the days when I am an old lady— the days when I have nothing better to do but sit and knit. Hence, the picture that I attached to this post.
Ins’t this picture funny!? I love it!!! This is what I want to do in retirement—sit and knit like an old bitty with my two toy poodles at my feet. Until then, I will deal with all that life throws at a person like me who has three young kids and a busy, yet very blessed, life.
How do you escape those hectic days?
Until next time,
