Good morning! Joining with Ginny at Small Things for another Yarn Along. Another yarn along? Already? How has it already been a week?
Still working away at my sweater.... but I have finished the body!!! I just have some short sleeves and two pockets and it will be complete. I am going to have it done by next week so I can show you all!!!!
Right now, I am reading Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin. It's a book about figuring out how to start (and stick with) positive habits. I am usually a pretty decent habit-starter, however, my life has had lots of twists and turns lately, and I have found that I need some help getting refocused and setting some new rhythms into my week. It's time for me to reassess what I need to make time for in my days, what I can let slide, and how to not talk myself out of doing the former. For example, I often think that it is really important that the kids and I cook together on a regular basis. And then we do it a few times, the kids complain or I get lazy and start cooking everything myself, and then months later I realize that we stopped cooking together. If I can find a way to schedule these important tasks into my week, and make them a regular thing, then hopefully they will continue to happen. I enjoy Rubin's writing and her scientific presentation behind her writing. I have read her Happiness Project book, which I thought was fun, and have listened to her Happier podcasts as well. Hoping that this read will be the motivation I need to get my days in order.
