Today is day three that I am not working. I am not out of a job, just between jobs, as I told you about on Saturday. Also, I should not say that I am not "working"...I am simply not going to work. I have a list of things to work on, and I am making my way through that list, slowly but surely. There are regular things to be done, like paying bills. There are neglected things I have not done in a long time, because I have been busy at work, things like really scrubbing down the bathroom and kitchen. Finally, there are things that I am longing to do in my time off, like binge watching 6 seasons of Downton Abbey while eating bonbons, as a properly kept woman in the middle of life might do. lol!
So far, I have made some good progress on the list, but I seem to keep adding items as I go. Some things I have enjoyed, like hanging the wind chimes my local knitting group gave us in remembrance of Sweetie's sister and brother. Others, notsomuch... Yesterday, I cleaned the bathroom so hard that I my quads are killing me this morning. I am not even sure how that happens! There were no weights involved...just me, the vacuum cleaner (with all of its accessories), a very scrubby sponge and all the normal cleaning products.
But in between the "chores" I have completed during this "vacation time," I have also done some fun things! I did hang the wind chimes, and I also flung open the windows so that I could hear them while I worked. Every time they ring, I remember that I am loved, and so were they.
I have done some knitting with catonlap, but not much...
I think the most fun thing I have done so far is to pack the birthday box including 20 packing bunnies! They really do multiply. I think I vaguely remember putting two in there to start, but just look what happened...
I have a friend who assures me that it is quite impossible, genetically speaking, for two bunnies to create 18 more, so that there are 5 individual colors produced along the way. I hear what she is saying, this is junior high level biology, dominant and recessive genes and all... However, we are talking about Red Heart Super Saver yarn, and I think most crafters would agree that this yarn has some "special" qualities...and in the world of acrylic yarns, anything is possible, don'tcha think? lol!
Sorry about that. I could not resist reminding you about the shorts. Those shorts are one of the things I carry in my head for times that I need to smile. I have thought of them often these past few weeks, and they never disappoint. I always smile!
This is the point where I usually say, "Now off to work with me!," but today I think I will get back to that list! The kitchen is jealous of the bathroom, and I have a desperate need to balance our budget, which I have neglected to do for nearly a year. There is also likely to be some knitting. Yes, knitting is one of the things I should have put on the list. I should always include knitting on my list of things to do today.
What is on your "to-do list" today? Whatever it is, I hope that you make progress, get things done, and that you still have time to knit.
Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
