The Monday List...on a Tuesday


It's a beautiful, stormy spring day....perfect to curl up in my space with tea, books, spinning, knitting, journals...all of those wonderful things which help to make me feel centered. 

Looking at last week's list:
  1. The second hap just needs the edging, and then it will be done.  Unfortunately, I ran out of yarn and had to order more.  Ask me how annoyed I am about having to spend $12 to ship $5 worth of yarn.  Sigh.  It actually wasn't THAT bad.  I also ordered yarn to do a second special request present for this friend...but still...the shipping was a third of what I had to spend. 
  2. As you can see...mini sock done!  Decided to wait until I actually finished the pair of socks to make the second mini, which is what I usually do.  I love these wee things....
  3. hmm...
  4. uhhh...
  5. well...
  6. eek...
  7. THAT I DID!  Journaling happened, and it was very helpful. 
So for this week:
  1. As soon as that yarn arrives, the hap needs to be finished
  2. I have an article to write today for the Mission Center newsletter.  I volunteered to write regular articles on the environment and going green...which is actually a focus of our world church.  Love our world church Earth Stewardship team, but I don't think many people know about it...thus the articles!
  3. More journaling.
  4. I'm cautious about committing to much more, because there are going to be a few days of frantic knitting to finish that blanket.  The shower is, after all, on Sunday!  HOWEVER, I have a few simpler knit projects I could use to fill my time.  (Hopefully the yarn will be here tomorrow...I did second day shipping, which was the best that was available.)  Throwing out a few ideas rather than an official to do list selection: work on a pair of socks, new slippers for myself, start my husband's shark hat...
  5. I do have an "Art Project" that I really, really want to do.  Has to do with finally putting all of those mini socks on permanents display....
  6. I'm going to go ahead and add spinning something to the list.  This is usually the season where the spinning bug takes hold, so I might was well add it in!
Have a great week everyone!
