Not that that is the only reason to go, because I should, but because of this guilt thing built into me by my upbringing I feel like "less than" when I'm not "perfect".
What's that got to do with this post?
That's kinda the feeling I'm having right now.
It's been forever since I took the time to sit down and put my thoughts out there. Not that I haven't wanted to, or thought about doing it, or even longed to craft a post.
It's the breaking the ice of my absence here that is hard :)
What is it that has kept me away? Hard to say~
I am working that mandatory overtime thing yet. Fifty eight hours a week.
I've been tying up loose ends in regards to my "full time" employment. Physical, background check, proof I'm an American citizen and can legally work. Can you believe the company that did the verification actually called me regarding my 'self employment'? They wanted the name and number of my accountant or bookkeeper so they could verify I was self employed. Ummmm... self employed in my world means I do everything! Whatever!
I've managed to get pretty darn close to finishing THE FENCE.
Today has been very unproductive. I MUST pay bills yet today, I attended a fall dinner at my church, and I've done chores. Not enough when I do nothing the rest of the week. I did do my laundry yesterday afternoon. Even folded it. LOL
I'm missing the creative activities. I just pulled this out of the bag from when I went to the Fiber Fair.
I got myself a super simple drop spindle. I'm not thinking I'm going to be doing bunches of spinning or anything. It's interesting, but I don't have the burning desire to do it, so I'll leave well enough alone. Enough to do already! What I got it for was to be able to ply some of the scavenged yarns that I've gotten from old sweaters. Some of the nicer yarns are pretty dang fine, and being as I'm more of a "rustic" type of girl I wanted to make them bulkier. I'm doing some very fine light green yarn with some angora white. The resulting yarn is much stronger and I really like the color. Eventually I'll make this into a scarf.
This is a slow process at this point. I'm all thumbs yet!
So the bill paying process is calling me. All for now and hope to be present here again sooner than later!
