I'm not sure if balance is the exact word I'm looking for, but for now, it will do. Lately, I'm feeling like I'm trying to figure out how to balance everything, find time for everything, and still relax and slow down and take things in stride. Make time for the little things that I so love to do. Spend more time with family and friends. Travel more. Read more. Knit more. Work productively (note, not more....just productively!). Finding that happy medium. You know what I mean?
Stephanie called it juggling. Just today Gigi talked about a simpler life and unplugging a bit. I'm sure Oprah has a word for it too.
I tried to do that this weekend with the farmer's market, knitting, hanging with the doggies. Spending time with family.
Yesterday I went to the gym. Not necessarily the fun type of balance, but making time for the gym and working out and being healthy tells me I'm taking the time to do the things I want to do. Even if they make my thighs hurt alot the next day.
I read a few new blogs. Thank you all for the suggestions. (Keep them coming by the way. I'll end the contest in the next day or two!)
Then I knit on my new design. I heart Plucky Primo! Seriously love this.
Matchy-matchy. I know. I can't help it. My new design journal from Punk Rawk Purl!
I tried to balance my knitting projects just a bit too. I resisted winding and casting this on immediately, despite wanting to! I'm so close to finishing the infinity scarf, that I'll wind the yarn tonight.
Sunshine Yarns, Classic Sock. Lovely. Lovely.
And I'm balancing writing this post and knit-nite. I wanted to do both tonight, but also want to relax when I come home and just knit. Read. Maybe go to bed early. So I'm writing this post, keeping it short and sweet, and heading to knit nite, albeit late.
I'm trying to find that balance. Zen. Happy Place. Any tips you guys want to share? I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one feeling this way, right?
Off to knit nite.
