I am taking a moment to blog because if I don’t another week will pass before I get in front of the computer again. We leave tomorrow for the drive to Victoria/Seattle and as always my business world is gangbusters! The best way for me to get busy is to decide things are slow and I need time away.
I know that it is time because it doesn’t take much to push me over the emotional edge either with tears or frustration. I wish that I could be better at knowing it is time to take a small break, but I tend to be one that pushes beyond what is reasonable for any human being and thing that I am happiest when I am busy. I am happy but eventually I hit the wall and need to “bunny up” (re-energize). I think that wall was yesterday morning. I have pushed through however and some faboulous women in my life have allowed me the moment to be cranky and the confidence to say once again “no”.
Hubby is excited about the trip even though it is hours of driving. I plan on personally visiting a couple of shops along the way if time allows. I still need to finish the second dragon sock but have turned the heal and am hours rather than days away.
There is an icy fog out this morning. Somehow, fog brings a peace for me. The world is just a wee bit quieter. I think the frost on the trees is stunning and frankly the only reward for not seeing Spring yet. Hopefully over the next week I will find a reprieve and a touch of Spring on the coast. Daffodils, pansies and tidal pools are on my list of gotta do. Hubby has planned high tea at the empress. where dress is no blue jeans. I shall be ready with anticipation and enjoyment.
No power conversion struggles this trip and lots of knitting in hand I will commit to an every other daily blog for the next 10 days. Jaberwonky here I come!
