Young at Heart
|nearing the middle point of the body shaping|
Today is another rainy dreary day. Oh for a bit of sunshine - that would be lovely! The benefits of a rainy day numerous. First of all, my bathrooms will be clean by lunchtime and I'll have the afternoon to knit and read and listen to some podcasts. Today will be a good day and I'll have some sunshine in my heart.
I'm on the last dish wash cloth! Focusing on knitting these quick projects has thrilled me to no end. I think I knit two a day? Maybe. So I'm a bit sad that I'm on the last one but it's time to focus on that sweater in the above photo. I want to get back to squishy wool. Cotton is not forgiving in the hands, at least for me.
I've been steadily learning my computer and overall the amount of information to digest has been fine. Whenever I hit a snag, I'm like a deer in headlights. "oh no! What should I do?" I have yet to figure out how to get this computer to communicate with the printer. I'm telling you now, it isn't going to happen. I've googled and exhausted the internet. I'll have to go old school and use a flash drive...
My printer is over seven years old so maybe I need to upgrade? Perhaps. We will see.

My other learning curve is doing some part time babysitting for a friend who needs child care in their home until the summer. I'm caring for a one year old for merely 7 hours a week (two mornings). I forgot SO MUCH when it comes to little ones. And I forgot all the guesswork involved anticipating a little one's needs. Does she want food, is she tired or the worst thought ever - does she like me???After I'm home, I need a nap like a one year old from all my overthinking.
When we stop learning we stop growing. Learning keeps us young at heart. Have you learned something new?
