Changes….

It seems that change is inevitable – whether we want it or not.  Sometimes the change is from within ourselves, but other times the change is from external forces.  I think that a large part of lifes stess is due to my inability to accept change.  Now, that being said – I think that I handle change fairly well, up to a certain point.  I think the easiest change to work through is internal change – after all, that is the change I have the most control over.  It is the external forces that cause me the most problems. 

I am in a job field where changes are happening daily – rapidly – sometimes without any notice.  This makes it highly stressful at work.  What was always black and white now suddenly has a lot of gray areas. 

 Can someone please send me the rules for the gray areas???

Last night was Knit Night at Friends – I had not been there in several weeks – boy, did I miss those women!  I broke my “yarn rules” last night as well.  I got some lovely Koigu to cast on for EZ’s BSJ.  This will be my very first EZ project – wow, huh?  So, as I cast on my 160 stitches and began knitting I was so excited!  Reading each step – counting my stitches – not rushing ahead to see what is next – relaxation just washed over me.  Listening to all the conversations around me – Sue’s excitement of a brand new granddaughter, Ann’s work woes, AnnMarie’s work stories, looking at the pictures from Ruby’s daughter’s recent wedding – is it any wonder that I love this group so much?  That and the fact that there was delicious food last night – Sue brought a “celebration” cake from Coldstone and another knitter – who I did not know – brought a fresh blueberry pie.  The pie was divine! 

I was up early this morning – I colored my hair, drank some coffee, played a bit on Ravelry – and now I am finishing up to head to work. 

It will be a get away day for me…. I am going up north with Ken to his sister’s cottage in Charlevoix.  It is a ‘family get together’ – his parents will be there, and most of his siblings – I am sharing a room with his sister, Sue.  I even told Ken about the Fiber Fest that is going on at Castle Farms – to which he replied – “well, we’ll have to go”!  I am hoping to see Susie there as well on Saturday.  Now, I am more than a little nervous about this weekend – meeting all (or almost all) the family????  But, what on earth should I think about a man who wants to go to a fiber festival????? 

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. What you should think about a man who wants to go to a fiber festival: “Thank God he’s mine! No, ladies, you cannot have him”

    Good luck and have fun!

  2. A man who wants to go to a fiber fest… does he know what a fiber fest is? Does he think it is a health fair, a rock group, a country group,… it is at Castle Farms – I went there for concerts many years ago… Did he think you said Viper Fest?

    What do I think? Give him a big hug and have a great time!

  3. UGH- I haven’t gotten my Ravelry invite yet and am reading on everyone’s blogs about how great it is! That’s what I get for being behind the times…
