Slow day

The house cleaner canceled today so I cleaned for a while. But truly, the house wasn't that dirty anyway.

Didn't sleep well so decided to read as I continue to glide through the remainder of Colin Dexter's "Morse" series. Reading made me sleepy so I napped a bit and now that I'm up I think I'll do a couple more of the floors.

Looks like we'll have pizza later as it's the usual fare when the cleaner comes, and I didn't make other plans. Anah will be pleased I'm sure.

Wishing it would rain. Almost time to plant and we haven't had much moisture in any form all winter which does not bode well for the garden.

Made the gauge swatch for the sweater yesterday, but haven't been inspired to cast it on yet. Pattern begins with an elaborate cabled waistband which looks quite formidable so I need all my wits about me to begin. And, where are my wits, I seem to have misplaced them again.

Well, wishing and hoping will get me nowhere and at the very least I can start a dishcloth for Erin's new kitchen. I need lessons on how to do nothing without feeling worthless.

Learning to just sit quietly is hard. Hope you made some progress on the dishcloth. I look forward to seeing that rather intimidating sweater.

I'm worried about the weather up here, too. It's freezing rain again. We will not have enough moisture for the summer if this keeps up.

While looking for dishcloth yarn came upon an unfinished throw that I decided to work on, made of leftover sock yarn.

LOL, E, my impression of you is that you're ALWAYS busy unless flat on your back due to illness or injury.

But it's also obvious to me that you're valued by those around you not just for what you do but for the person that you are. And I've kind of decided that, as time goes on, what we really need to learn is to appreciate that about our own lives.

Hope you have a blessed evening and that those you love will find appropriate and meaningful ways to show their appreciation for you...

Aw shucks, L, I think you've got me pegged. Staying busy keeps the demons from running rampant in my head.

And, you're right on about learning to appreciate ourselves, something I have a hard time doing and I suspect you might as well.

All blessings received and appreciated.
