This weekend, the yarn ordered for my husband’s socks arrived. I am so unexcited. So this morning I got in most of my walking, fixed breakfast, washed the clothes including the sheets, and moved furniture to clean under it. Then I mopped two floors. After all that, I went out to the hoop house to see how the little job with the plywood was progressing. It wasn’t – it was on hold for ??? Since I’m such a great motivator “just let me do it, I’ll get it done”, I was dismissed to do something else. He has the job done and tomorrow I can bring some hay up to put around the potatoes that are tall enough. So back to the kitchen to make lunch, after which a rest was appropriate.
Does it sound like stalling. Yes, I was. However, these are things we do for people we love. Somehow, brown and more brown without even a pattern in the socks just doesn’t excite me and there is enough yarn for 3 pair. I think I might be finding a number of other “higher priority” things to do in between bouts of these socks.
