There Aren’t Enough Hours

H and I went to the library. She wanted books for an article she’s writing. I was killing time waiting for her. I spent a few minutes looking through the magazine swap rack and found a few interesting ones to bring home. H still wasn’t done so I headed over to the mystery section where I found two of the three new books in a series I enjoy by Susan Conant. Now to squeeze some reading in with the knitting and house organizing. 

As you can see I’ve made progress on both the Pine Forest Blanket and the Posey Pin Cushion. The Pin Cushion progress is probably less obvious though. First of all, I found it. That was a minor miracle. A while back when I was organizing my stash, aka looking for something to knit, I gathered all the UFOs into one medium size container. The parts were there, all together like I had planned to actually finish it. I said it was a minor miracle. I also read through the instructions and figured out where I am and what I’ve got to do. Now I just have to do it. 

But first a quick update on the house organizing. A big miracle will be needed there. Yesterday I did a quick purging in the kitchen. I filled a trash bag and most of a recycling container with expired stuff, extra plastic containers that won’t get used someday, the condiment containers with nothing useable left and the unidentifiables from the freezer. It’s a small step but one in the right direction. 

Now as a reward for making all this progress I think I’ll read a chapter. Then I’ll get back to the other stuff, really I will.

    I absolutely recommend a reward!! I know that when things go crazy in my office, that a 20-30 minute purge every day for a week can make a huge difference, both in actual cleaning up and my mental outlook!

    Oh the rabbit hole of the library; how fun! I’ve done that where I tell myself I’ll just take a peek in the New Fiction section and end up with 4-5 books when I’ve got a few at home besides on my Kindle. That is lovely progress on your blanket.
