Monday Musings

The day is growing short, but I don’t want to fall down on Day 3 of NaBloPoMo and my commitment to post every day in November, so here are some random thoughts running through my head this evening.

— Why was Christmas music playing on my radio on October 30?  I’m as big a fan of Christmas as the next person, but I really don’t see the need for two solid months of Christmas music 24/7.

— Am I a process or product knitter?  This dichotomy is discussed often in the knitting world, and I’ve always quickly answered that I’m a process knitter, but that might be changing these days.  More detailed thoughts on this to come…

— Sometimes you have to let go of something, even if it feels like quitting and giving up, in order to open up space in your life for new and more exciting things!

— Planning out props for a radio show play this December is lots of fun.  Trying to figure out how to make sounds using objects that have nothing to do with the sound really stretches the brain muscles.

— The human body and brain is amazingly adaptive.  I was amazed at how quickly I was able to adjust to using my left hand for eating, brushing my teeth, and even using my computer mouse while my right hand was healing from my burn.  But I’m really grateful that it’s healed and I have full use of both hands again, because it was pretty exhausting getting my brain to work in that completely opposite way.

— I’m glad that I’ve perfected the art of reading while I’m knitting, because between the Henrico Theatre Company One Act competition, the CAT Theatre playreading committee, and coaching Reading Olympics at my son’s school, I have quite the list of required reading over the next couple of months.  The picture below is just a small sampling of what I have to read.



So, those are just a few of the random thoughts that are running through my head at the moment.  What about you?  What are you pondering on this fall Monday evening?

  1. I’m finding that the divide between process knitter and product knitter is very fluid. I know I’m a product knitter when I’m well, but whenever I’m depressed I turn into a process knitter, doing only swatches that I keep unravelling and reknitting.
    I hope your burn heals well.
