knitting Christmas gifts,
developing recipes for my other blog,
grocery shopping for the week and for Thanksgiving dinner,
making a Kindle case to fill an Etsy order,
stopping at the feed store for chicken feed,
and making covers for the cushions on the hope chest in our living room, something like these.
I’ve been tired this week, as usual, and everything has required that I push myself to keep going, to do just one more thing. The alternative would have been accomplishing nothing at all, and that just doesn’t work for me. I have to accomplish something, anything, even small things.
I got the groceries with Laura’s help, I started the gift knitting and began the Kindle case. I worked on gluten free recipes, but none of them came out the way I expected and will need more work before I can post them to Wheatless Foodie. I bought chicken feed.
The cushions will have to wait. Again. Those cushion covers have been on my lists for weeks, but the cushions can remain wrapped in a quilt for now.
Today I am resting. It’s Laura and Bryan’s night to cook dinner, and they clean the house on Fridays. I plan to spend the day working on the Kindle case and gift knitting, as well as some image work on the computer. I might read, or just sit with my eyes closed and a cat in my lap as I look forward to a weekend spent with my family.
