I haven’t blogged in a while and I think I have some good reasons, all of which probably aren’t really that good, but I’m going with them.
At the top of the list is that I accidentally poured a cup of tea onto my beloved laptop. That’s the bad news. The good news it that Geek Squad/Best Buy sent it to Kentucky and two weeks and $335 later it is back. It still has all my data and is seemingly okay.
So that was one problem and I think it is a pretty good excuse. But honestly I think the real reason is this state of hesitancy that I sometimes find myself in. This is when I keep moving something to the bottom of my To Do List for no apparent reason, or don’t even put it on the list. It isn’t that the item is boring/not boring, fun/not fun, easy/not easy. I get into this mind set and the darn thing doesn’t get done.
I did this when I taught also. It usually took the form of a class set of papers that I needed to grade. Now I find that I still do this even though I am retired from teaching. Damn it.
Exercise is in a permanent state of hesitancy. I have to set up a permanent schedule and commit myself to a person I respect to keep up. Coincidentally, with the computer being gone, and my beloved exercise lady, Sharon, off to share the birth of her third grandchild, I am finding myself not only not exercising, but not blogging either. Hmm.
I think this is a fairly serious character flaw. Might as well call a spade a spade.
All I can do is keep on keeping on.
I finished my Hops and Ale. It is pretty beautiful. I also “finished” the infamous purple shawl. That is a blog entry all by itself. I started this Coastal Gradient cowl/scarf that is a 6 shade set of Knitwit yarn with dark red trim. Oh is it gorgeous and a fun mindless knit.
I am not going to post any photos of these various things as my escape from the State of Hesitancy (I think by this point it deserves caps) is tentative and I don’t want to jinx it. You will have to trust me that I am telling the truth.
Can I also add, in my defense, that my also beloved car was in the shop during this time. It is a 2002 and I still love it as I did the day it was purchased and I am NOT a big car lover at all. It is fine now and safely in the garage as I speak so I am feeling pretty good.
