Three things on my mind this Thursday . . .
- Hannah’s graduation tonight! I’m so proud of her and the work she does already, having her Master’s in Special Education won’t make her a better teacher but it will make her eligible for advancement and a raise. She’s worked hard to get this done and I still remember how I felt when I finally got my Master’s in Library Studies – relieved and happy and proud – so I hope she feels all of that and more.
- Knitting. I’m currently only knitting a pair of socks as the sweater I had started is languishing – partly because it’s too warm now to care about sweater knitting but also partly because I think it’s going to be too big. When I was at SPA I bought a kit from Ball and Skein to make A Walk in the Woods and I’d really like to get that started this weekend. I’m hoping by putting it on the blog that I will remember to actually do it. I also need to block my Islington Shawl. It’s been on the arm of the sofa in the den for a couple of months now and I need to just.do.it.
- Making the blog more lively. I feel like I’ve settled into a boring routine around here. Weekending on Monday, Three on Thursday, Eye Candy Friday . . . it just feels a little stale right now. It’s easy because I don’t have to think too hard about what I’m going to blog about but . . . the goal here shouldn’t be to get a post written in 5 minutes, the goal should be to share my life and ideas and thoughts. I need to set aside more dedicated time for writing because when I go back and read what I wrote a few years ago it feels sharper and better and more meaningful.
And that’s what’s occupying my mind this day. What are you thinking about? I’d love to know!
