New Year…Continued Quest

January 21, 2009

Its hard for me to accept how much time passes between the moments I actually do what I want. Sure I choose what to do but I feel that some things just have to be done while other things continually sit at the bottom of the list.

I am trying to make a point of doing something for myself as often as possible. I am reading more frequently now. I still crochet regularly which started before the holidays (I succeeded in making 7 scarves before the Christmas deadline). I just downloaded GIMP and am making plans to delve into more digital forms of artistic expression again. I want to draw and paint again.

Realistically speaking, with work sucking my stamina and time out of most days of the week, I won’t achieve all that I want to unless I sacrifice something. It’s logical. Right? The problem lies here. Do I let the house fall into further disorganized chaos? Do I let more dirty dishes pile up in the sink? Do I deprive my pets of playtime and interaction?

I suppose I will continue to jump at the fleeting moments I find to crochet one more row or read one more page… its all I have right now. I refuse to let go of these because of what happened in my past. I lose myself when I neglect my creative side. I know this and learned a great deal from the experience.

I keep hoping that some opportunity will present itself that will open up more time in my life for me. Until then, forgive my less than regularly posts.

Be well.

I’ve gotten into the habit of skipping over simple things… Like little journal entries in this blog… and I really don’t like it. 😦

A Crafty Dream…

October 3, 2008

I dreamt about a breast cancer awareness ribbon made out of my newly purchased pink yarn. I dreamt it Thursday morning and whipped one up. I’m wearing it today. Picture to follow. Here is a picture of me at work wearing my own pin! 🙂

my father…

My father…Daddy (i still call him that even though i’m 29)… He has skin cancer. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers… keep him in that special place where thoughts flutter like butterflies and gain a special aura of attention… i would be lost without my parents… without my father.

A hectic hiatus

June 10, 2008

Things have become hectic … things have been hectic … i am pulled in so many directions – not all external.

Matt is now my partner … in living arrangements. we both reside at my grandparents old lil cottage house. its cluttered and disorganized but still a work in progress. we will get settled and make it marvelous.

Our puppy was neutered last week Thursday but never realized it happened – he’s as buoyant and energized as ever. 

so much to do… at work. will try to write more later… i am so sorry ive virtually disappeared from the online world…
