These January Days
|my work day|
Every morning I wake up early and write in my journal and do my prayers. I have full belief that every day is THE DAY I use my time wisely and eek out as much goodness from every minute. Lunch time comes too quickly and yet again I'm sure I have more than enough time to read or get whatever tasks need to be completed. Dinner time comes and goes and I realize that it's another day that I've frittered away time. After dinner I knit and plot my next day.
I go to sleep, I wake up and repeat the thought process again. Ordinarily one would think I'm a 'glass half full' kind of gal based on this behavior and I would agree that I truly truly believe I can do everything and anything I've conjured up on my daily list.
Here's the thing. I love thinking of each day and it's possibilities and the hopefulness the mornings bring when I wake up. I love mornings and the quiet welcoming of the day.
At the beginning of the year (two weeks ago?), I was talking to my son about my reading goal of four books in January. He questioned my goal as if it was not possible. So here I am, mid-January and I haven't finished one of the four books....yet.
Today was the day I rejiggered my schedule. At one o'clock in the afternoon, I stopped everything, sat down and read for two hours, with some knitting of course. Oh I wanted to check my phone a bazillion times but I kept saying to myself I will be sabotaging my reading goal.
I probably will not be reading four books this month, however I will read two or three.
Have you heard yet that we might be getting a snow 'event'? I'm excited. I joined every other crazy person at the grocery store buying food. As long as the electricity stays on, let the snow fly! We haven't had a significant snowfall since November.
On the knitting front my two projects are coming along nicely. The sweater is growing and the sock is at the heel flap stage. Super excited about both. If it snows, I'll be knitting even more.
