Change of pace

Butch relaxing in the morning sun from the living room window, in "his spot".
I went to bed last night and for the first time in months, I did not have to set an alarm.  I was allowed to wake up when my body wanted to and it was glorious.  I got to sleep until I was fully recharged.  It is amazing how much one little thing like that can help a person - on so many levels.

Today I am finally off and I am going to spend it doing relaxing things.  I've got a small Emma Stone movie collection waiting for me, along with my latest knitting project.  I've got my coffee in my most favorite mug and that annoying sleep deprived twitch in my left eye is slowly fading.  I even pulled out steaks for supper so I don't have to cook.

These past few weeks have made me sit down and prioritize my life.  I can no longer go ninety to nothing with the mentality of "I'll sleep when I'm dead".  I have a plan in place to lessen the time requirements on my life so I can get my balance, my peace, and my health back.  They aren't major things - well, not to the average person but they are major parts of my life.  I have even enlisted the help of some friends to keep me to my plan.

I miss this space in my life.  It is one of my most favorite places to be and yet it has been getting the least amount of my attention.  That is one of the main things that will be remedied in the coming months.  It's a gradual plan but by Spring I should have it all wrapped up in a nice little bow.

Bare with me.  Your patience and understanding has been lovely and I cherish it.  Things will be back to normal soon.  In the interim, why not join me in an Emma Stone/knitting kind of day.  I've got "Easy A", "The Help", and "Crazy Stupid Love" all set up so that by the end of today, I will have a new FO to share with y'all.

I will be back shortly, so please be well and be blessed.
I tried to share my WIP by my "production crew" was too busy helping for me to be able to share... but know this, it's lace!


  1. I just found your blog through a slipper pattern posted by Mosier Farms. Love reading about your life, knitting, crafts, and medicinal milkshakes. Thanks for posting!
