So after my last post and a bit of thinking, I realized that despite the busyness, I want to be posting more. I want to be writing more and I miss it. I thought about this challenge:
I can handle that. It doesn’t even need to be anything big, right?
Then, two things happened:
1. I watched Twilight for the first time, and decided I needed to read the books.
2. I bought a shiny new Nook Color with my Christmas money, enabling me to buy all the Twilight books, one right after the other. For example……while I’m
hiding in the kitchen reading cooking dinner or when I’m staying up until 1:30 in the morning 10pm.
Needless to say, I was done for and spent the last week and a half with nothing but Bella and Edward on my mind. And yes, I know, not exactly the best writing in the world, but it’s a wicked story and I’m a sucker for a good romance.
So post-a-week had to wait two weeks, but now I’m seriously hoping to get a bit of focus back on this thing. No promises of course, I’ve learned at this point in my life I should commit to very little. But let’s say I’m inspired again and that is exciting. And I can at least promise not to go crackers and turn this into a Bella and Edward blog. I will stick to knitting and sewing and how to raise three boys without going crazy.*
And because I owe you a picture and a finished object:
My Ostrich Plumes shawl, finished and blocked two days before my brother’s wedding. Raveled here.
And yes, the Nook Color is awesome, and I have wasted just as much time messing around with it as I have reading.Not just for reading, it is the new knitting tool of my dreams…..every PDF I have easily carried in my knitting bag, with access to Ravelry wherever there is wifi.
*Hide from them, read cheesy vampire romance novels, and feed them cereal for dinner when they come looking for food.
