Groovy Baby

The origin of this post was actually to test ‘blogging’ from my cell phone. I guess it worked since my irrelevant title made it to the page. Cool.
As shocking as this sounds, I managed to make 2 entries in a row. Way! It is a beautiful day here in Rhinebeck, so I came home and did a little yard work. Let’s see, I killed the grubs, but fed the grass; I killed the moss, but fed the rhodos and azaleas. The weeds…they don’t stand a snowballs chance in hell! What I love is knowing that I did my work so now I can play ; D
I am sure most of you are familiar with Ravelry. I joined a few group that share a love of knitting and gaming. How cool is that?!? You have no idea the amount of knittable items from Katamari!
Often the question comes up about how to balance all of our – dare I say – addictions. I gotta tell you, it is tough. I really try to take advantage of things like weather and such. If it is very nice out, I will work outside. If we are watching the Mets on TV, I’ll knit because I can do both at the same time (unless it is during the playoffs and we are BLOWING OUR LEAD!!!) ahem…as I was saying, when I am putzing around the house with laundry, gaming is easy to pick up and put down without losing your place. I would say the one hazard with that is when little paws (read: sons) pick up the controller when I am at the laundry room and take on the boss I have been waiting for since I started the game! NOOOOOO! Well, it is hard to find the balance. Try as I might it still sometimes becomes a little lopsided. None the less, I do think it all comes out in the wash since by some miracle we manage to do it all. Don’t we?
Happy Spring, and for all you good people going to the MD Sheep and Wool Festival, SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP!
May the Force be with you.
