I hope you all had a good weekend!
This past week I have spent a lot of my free time knitting, and catching up on watching The Blacklist and Poldark. I finished watching season 5 of The Blacklist and I watched the entire fourth season of Poldark this weekend. Now that I am caught up on the seasons of these shows that are out on DVD, I can go back to rewatching shows. This also means I can go back to spending more time reading in the evenings before bed. I figure that since I am caught up on what I haven’t seen yet, it’s easier to stop watching and put down my knitting and spend more time with my nose in a book. Limiting my screen time, especially before bed is definitely something I found that helps me sleep, but I had gotten away from the last few months when I was so busy with work.
I am also slowly preparing for what I hope to be doing long term with life. Long story short, I am doing my research on where I think I might like to live, and I need to go check out these places. First I need to renew my passport (with the whole RealID thing, and the state issued ID’s from my state aren’t compliant with the federal standards, having a passport is one less stress to security) and save as much money as I can.
As crazy as it may be, I think I finally realized what I want to do with my life, and I finally have a purpose to work for. While I am not ready to spill the beans on what that all looks like, as it will be a work in progress for a while, I will share what I can, when I can.
It feels really good to have something to be working toward again. I felt like I had lost myself, and a part of who I was there for a while. I was once the girl who had big dreams, didn’t take no for an answer when I was told I couldn’t do something. In fact each time I was told no, or I that I couldn’t, that added fuel to the fire to prove to them, and even more so, myself that I could. I have always been the “wild”, “untamed”, outdoorsy, preferring to work with her hands, work her butt off, hard working, pull her weight kind of a girl.
The other day, I was working on the second sock of a pair I have going, and I ran out of yarn, not even half way along the foot.
So I am going to have to order some more, as well as some more of the colors I had ordered along with this yarn, so I will have enough to make those pairs of socks as well. I am having to wait until I get paid this week, to put in my order. In the mean time I have plenty of other projects to work on. This weekend I finished up this sock.
The yarn I am using for this pair, is the yarn I use the most, so I have enough for the second sock as well. I got the second sock cast on today.
I will hopefully have the sock I have to wait on yarn for as well as the sock I just started today done within the next couple of weeks. I would love to have these pairs of socks done, and another pair started before the end of the month.
