Blogging without Obligation

I hate to say it, but I'm totally overwhelmed.  I've got so much going on with the dogs, organizations and relationships because of the dogs, all the projects on my needles, projects at work, and stuff to do on the house.  Not to mention wanting to keep up with this blog. 

Since I don't want this to turn into a words only post, I looked around to find a graphical representation of chaos that is my life.  I present to you, dear readers, THE KNITTING TABLE OF DOOOOOOMMMMM!!!!



Underneath all of the stuff is my dining room table.  You can see my briefcase, magazines I want to read, the lining of my jacket, my blocking board, some recent stash enhancements.  A Piddleloop bag with a knitting project, the towels I use for blotting, and the drink I couldn't find two days ago. 

Faced with all this chaos, I did what any sane person would do.  I surfed the net and found my salvation.

I stumbled upon this post, which nicely summed up the way I'm feeling.  So, I have a new philosophy:

Ahh -- one thing back under my control.

It's funny. Sometimes when things are hectic and I have a lot on my plate, I get super-motivated and get all sorts of stuff done in record time. Other times, it makes me want to hide in the closet and wait for it all to go away. I wish I could predict which way it will go.

Anyway, I agree that you don't have to apologize for going a while without a post (big surprise, there, eh?) or even for deciding not to do Secret of the Stole, although I must say, I do expect my stalkers to take part in all I do. ;)

Is the Brooks Farm Solana so amazingly soft? It's so heavenly, it's addicting IMHO. Can't wait to see you finished clapotis. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
