And it's really Friday

For me, it's been a very long week.  I have a lot on my mind and it tires me out mentally.  I am really feeling at a crossroads and at the expense of sounding too dramatic, it's really killing me.  Some nights I wake up from a dead sleep and wonder if there is a way to be put into the witness protection program even though I don't have any incriminating evidence against a mob boss.  To be able to start over; new name, new job, new life.  Just leave everything behind and start new.  Why does that sound so wonderful to me? 

I think I could eat pecan rolls every day.  What is it about pecans on top of a sticky bun?  Together with coffee it's delicious.  When I retire I am going to learn to make my own.  Until then I rely on Panera Bread. 

I measured my Etsy special order blanket last night.  It is 36 inches in length right now.  The order is for it to be 86 inches, so I am getting there.  I have 37 hours into it and that includes rolling yarn, so I'm doing alright.  I should easily make the deadline.  It is quite colorful as she requested.  I truly hope she likes it.  I've already started thinking about the next one.  I bought a beautiful shade of blue called Ocean.  I'm pairing it with a Sky Blue for the main colors.  I'm anxious to see the finished product.  After that one I have the one pounder in a color called Forest Floor.  You can imagine how devine that shade is!  I think I will pair it with either off white or cream. 

I wish I could crochet all day.  On a porch swing with a never ending glass of sweet tea.  No bugs and the temperatures just right.  In a cotton sundress, in my barefeet.  Toes freshly polished...


  1. I think we are two peas in a pod right now, Can I join you on that porch? Although I am going to add no kids or husbands interrupting us.
    Take good care,

  2. Of course you may join me on the swing. And you can set any rules you'd like. I'm all for no husband and kids interrupting. It's nice to know someone else is feeling the same way. Have you ever seen the movie "Somewhere in Time"? It's the one with Christopher Reeve. There's a woman in that movie that takes a vacation alone every year to figure out if she will return to her life and every year she really has no idea until her vacation is up.

  3. I have at times wanted to run away from my life. I know what you are feeling. Hang in there it does pass. I was thinking just yesterday how nice it would be to just not have to work anymore. Unfortunately, I have another 20 years before I can even begin to think I won't work anymore. I would love to join you! The picture of the swing looks like a perfect place to do whatever you want, read, crochet, knit or sleep! I just want some time to be just by myself, no husband, no children, nothing, just me. I may have to do that sometime.

  4. Yes, some me time is very much needed for many of us I do believe. Such a simple request but one that seems so difficult to fulfill!
