I'm not sure right now who's quote this is, but it rings in my monkey mind almost daily!
Often, when I crash into bed at night, I start to create this mental list of what I want to accomplish when a block of time opens up for me. Just as often upon waking, my morning is full of chores, dog to feed and walk, laundry, oh cripes, I need food, picking up, slicking up of my space and before I know it, NOON and I've accomplished nada thing on my list.
At noon, when I'm home ... and the sun is shining ... I want my 20 minutes of vitamin D outside. Back home, now I'm starving, and the day is creeping by. Often I find I'm not sitting down at the paint table until late afternoon and then working late into the evening until my eyes give out with the lack of natural light coming in my window.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, maybe wishing I was a morning person, but I've tried that many times. Why set myself up for failure, mornings don't work for me. I'm not grumpy, I just don't move that fast, not in an I'm super old creaky sense. More like, she's really not awake, it just appears that way because she's vertical.
So last week I sat myself down to make a 'monthly' goal list of 'todo's. Day one found me working on something that was totally not on the list anywhere. But, oh happy day, I finished it! So I added it and then happily scratched it out!

... maybe she won't see me back here.
Ready to ship off to the finisher, yay!
I also finished one other lingering project, a super adorable knitted cardi and cap for our 'Little Miss' Emma. She nor her Mommy have seen it yet ... so no pictures. I don't knit much anymore but thoroughly enjoyed working up a sparkly little bit for the cutest grandbaby girl ever.
|Love this picture of her, my current favorite.|
She's totally focused on her new found toys,
fingers and toes are the best!
