Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut

Sometimes you don’t.

I love Almond Joy. I wish it was dark chocolate like Mounds, but a gal can’t have everything.

Have you ever noticed all of the merchandise on the market promoting Joy? “Find Joy”, “Choose Joy”, “Seek Joy” or just “Joy”.

Is joy really that elusive? I don’t think it is. I am going to be bold and actually suggest that joy resides within us all. It is our default. It is the noise of the world that pulls us away from our nature to be joy-filled and positive people. So why are people so comfortable with being pissy? Stop being pissy, people. Just stop it. Get help. Get to know God. Go for a walk. But for cryin’ out loud, cheer the h*ck up! 🙂

I received a message from WordPress the other day. It congratulated me on 10 years of blogging. Well, isn’t that special. I thought I would share one of my very first posts with you, but in doing so, I realized I have been babbling on as Cosmicknitter for much longer than ten years. I started this blog on the Blogger site in 2007 and it was in 2011 that I migrated to WordPress. I have officially been talking about absolutely nothing for 14 years! What the heck??

I don’t know the fate of the first ever post; I can’t locate it in my archives. Let’s hear it for sloppy seconds! Cosmicknitter circa 2007. Classic. Vintage, even. The photos did not migrate with the new platform. As you can clearly see, I had little to say then and I have stayed true to form since.

That’s all for today. I have knitting to report on, but that will have to wait for another day.

Happy Monday!

    1. Honestly, I don’t know the fate of the socks, and I ended up donating the throw. Funny thing about the throw…It took me 3 winters to knit it and in that time my skills improved so my tension improved. Rather than having a rectangle, I had an isosceles trapezoid! It was pretty funny.

    1. Thank you! Social media did try to lure me, but being on one of those apps also exposes me to some of the garbage that I absolutely need to avoid if I have any hope of staying sane. Blogging is the perfect medium for finely curated woolly and non-woolly stuff.
