Well, my best intentions to write got away from me. I even had several posts started that I may finish for an after the fact mention. It has been difficult for me to get into a routine and thus find a good time to write. Oh well, guess I’ll stick to these stolen moments.
Writing has not been the only area that has suffered. My creativity has too. My needles have slowed down and my dyeing and buttons have remained mostly just sketches and ideas in my notebook.
Now that September’s halfway done, I’m beginning to find my balance. Homeschool for my little one is now on a good schedule and getting easier every day. The added chores that I took on when my oldest left are now finding their rhythm in my schedule. It’s amazing how such a thing as a child leaving for college and another child starting school can totally disrupt your life for a time.
I’m looking forward to getting past this month and into a better rhythm of finding everything I need to do occuring as a habit so that my downtime is for my enjoyable activities again. For this week, I plan to finish knitting several WIPs, get 10 skeins dyed for my shop, stitch together my new bags for the shop and play with my clay. Saturday I will be spinning at a local alpaca ranch, tutoring and visiting with friends. Sunday I plan on resting before more tutoring in the evening. So we’ll see how much I can actually do!
Until next time. Keep crafting.
