New Year, First Post

01 Jan

“They” say that on New Year’s Day you should do all of the things that you want to do more of in the New Year. If you don’t have time for all that, a symbolic effort will do. Today I:

  • Got up way too early
  • Watched Breaking Bad while drinking tea
  • Finished a quilt
  • Went thrifting
  • Went shopping for office stuff
  • Visited the dog park with Sabu
  • Took a nap

Wow. So far it’s not looking good, is it? Until I sat down at the computer to tally up my Grand Accomplishments for the day it felt like I’d run a marathon. Sigh. Well, there are 5.5 hours left of January 1. I wonder if I can:

  • Spin something
  • Knit something
  • Fix the water pump leak
  • Do some drafting for The Other Boss
  • Finish writing a sock knitting pattern
  • Fiddle
  • Vacuum
  • Do laundry

A couple of those would have been handled in the course of a usual Wednesday night but when I drove over to the yarn shop it was all closed up. Guess there’s no Knit Night tonight. Sigh. Too bad because that would also have covered “spend more time in the studio working on Stuff.”

Better get at it!

    Sounds like you mostly relaxed and enjoyed yourself. What better way to set a tone for the year?

    I liked the part where you nap. That’s a good part. Naps are awesome!

      Toast & tea and a nice long nap – my idea of the perfect Winter afternoon…
