Knit Together

Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together.

Slightly Askew

All weekend I've had a restless feeling. My attention drifted and I couldn't get settled. I did knit and make art, and these provided some immersion into contentment. But when I wasn't doing those things, I felt somewhat on edge. There are small things nagging at the borders of my attention. I still haven't sorted through the clutter on my desk. The garage is a mess because I've been using it for art. The house could use some cleaning. I intended to cook this weekend but didn't.

What did I accomplish? I completed Christmas shopping for my parents and my sister-in-law (we sibs take turns giving to one sib each year). The sister-in-law on the other side of the family, as well as my husband's immediate relatives, remain to be done. I made headway on a scarf I'm knitting. Did laundry. Made art. Cleaned up the kitchen (and now it needs it again).

I don't know... just have this somewhat caged feeling. Perhaps a walk is in order. Winter is coming. It's supposed to rain today (finally!). I'd best get out while it's dry yet.
