I was planning to take the day off from blogging and spend the time knitting and spinning. I had written a clever little note to tell you where I was, and included a couple things to amuse you whilst I spin. As it turns out, the software is having issues again and, well, I’ve spent just about as much time as I usually do getting a post written, trying to tell you that I’m not going to be blogging today.
Having said that, here are some thoughts:
Steve Martin said; “When your hobbies get in the way of your work—that’s okay; but when your hobbies get in the way of themselves…..well…..” That’s how I’m feeling today.
Last night I was commenting to DH (complaining??) that the blog was taking up all my time, time I wanted to spend knitting and spinning and such, yet when he said “then don’t do it!” I cried, “but I like it!” I feel like the time spent writing, and then reading what YOU all write is time spent building relationship—-in a way. I know, we aren’t sitting down to coffee or lunch, we’re not trading babysitting or organizing carpools, we’re not in the stands, cheering our children on to victory. But we are getting to know each other, not unlike being pen pals in “the old days.”
And so, here I am. And there you are. And the conversation continues.
Now before I head off to the spinning wheel or my knitting basket, here’s something to think about 🙂
Yes, I’m afraid it’s true……evidence of Bird Flu in a trailer park somewhere in Florida.
Make it a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow.
