I’ve been working very hard on my prayer life lately, as well as on improving myself. It’s been a joy, and a treasure. However, I’ve been neglecting my knitting and crochet.
It seems to me that I’m going to have to let the knitting and crochet stay neglected this week. Here’s what’s going on.
In working on getting my own house in order, I’ve adopted many of the flylady ideas. That works for me, with some adaptations to fit my own lifestyle. I’ve been getting some routines down, and I am living a new lifestyle. However, I don’t dress to the shoes right away every morning. I’ve learned that until the coffee pot and I settle our differences, I am truly an out-of-sorts type of person.
I’m afraid to face the shower at that time in my day. I also have concerns about whether or not the clothes will actually physically work on my body. One morning, it was brought to my attention that I had my sweater on backwards.
Therefore, my priorities in the morning have coffee and morning prayers first.
I’m also working hard on my religious beliefs. In tithing my time to God, I am looking for ways I can truly dedicate my life to the Lord. Part of that is spent either physically at the church, whether I am participating in the Mass or not. Part of that time is spent studying the Catechism and the Scriptures. This works for me.
We are also preparing for my Husband’s surgery next Monday. In preparing for his surgery, I’m making sure that I have things organized and ready to go. We’re going to need a cooler in the van, with meals for me. We’re going to need to have the bed in the back of the van set up for my husband afterwards for the trip home. This is one of those same-day surgeries, and I want him to be as comfortable as possible.
I’m also working on the behind-the-scenes things here at anonymousknitter.com. Part of that is obvious, I’m researching the topics and ideas that I will be presenting in future podcasts and blog posts. I’ve also been reading quite a bit, out of my fiber arts library, for future technique of the week ideas.
Yet, the reason I started this blog, and the podcast is because I love the fiber arts. Working with fiber is the best way to relieve my stress each day. Working with fiber saves other’s lives, because I don’t want to either lose my place in the pattern, or I don’t want to create any problems. Sighs.
It’s a catch-22 I tell ya. I want to give 100% to this and to that, but instead, I’m learning that I need to find balance in my day.
So, here’s the plan, just for today. In addition to my 15 minutes here and there of cleaning and such. I’m going to take a 15 minute fiber break. I think that the world will be a much better place for it.
