My New Hobby:
Last night, for whatever reason, I thought it would be a good idea to slip down my hardwood stairs onto the stone tile floor below. Fear not, my own fear stepped in and I grabbed the raincoat hanging from the hooks on the wall with one hand and the wall below the railing with the other. I would have gone down head first. Instead I sort of slipped down like I was Legolas riding his shield down the stairs...except I had to use my knees. Ouch. So now I feel like I have full body whiplash. Which is better than the first time I fell down the stairs and had to go have x-rays because they thought I broke something. You should have seen THAT bruise. I didn't know that colour appeared naturally in nature. Then today, as I was cleaning out the garage, I slipped on the step. I told you I needed a new hobby.
Other Topic - Knitting:
Yesterday, while folding laundry, I had the rare pleasure of seeing a show I never get to see, Knitty Gritty. Yes it is a knitting show. Yes I like to knit. Yes I am that big of a geek. Whatever. The point is, it really made me happy to watch. Then today while I was cleaning out some of the garage, I found all my knitting supplies. Yarn, needles, counters, knitting machine, (yes I have a knitting machine), ball winder, you know, knitting stuff! My heart ached. I want to knit. Why am I not knitting? I haven't made anything since I made those beanies for Wentworth Miller's gift bag. (SHUT UP! NO ONE ASKED YOU!)So I guess what I am saying, is I think it's time to pick up my needles again. Maybe I should start on Christmas gifts for people.
Other Topic - Relationships:
I had a conversation with a friend of mine yesterday. My heart breaks for her. She is in a committed relationship, but as I understand it, she is not happy. They are just living together, and she seemed content with that for a while. But then she met someone. He's new, exciting, unbelievably sexy. So now she's torn. Do you stay with what you know, what is comfortable but brings you no joy or feeling? Or do you go with what is new, exciting, although dangerous and complicated but has awakened your soul and makes you feel alive again? I'm sure I don't know. Like I said, my heart breaks for her. So this is for her:
Girl, you know I love you! I will stand by your side whatever your decision, right, wrong or indifferent. I will fight for you and cry with you, because that is what friends do. No judgment, just love. Be strong and call me...whenever!
