This is not a photo of knitting, because there has been very little knitting lately, except for a few inches of the yellow cotton thing that I can't show you. What there has been a lot of this past week is family, food, and grandbaby cuddling, and that's O.K.
This photo was taken at the Denver Botanic Gardens, in the Japanese Garden section. I love this place. In the center of all the craziness that came with DD's commencement, the few hours we spent there probably saved my sanity. It's my Lourdes. It's where I came to the realization that I will never, ever come close to being able to juggle everything I want and need to do, and hold on to what little sanity I have left. If I don't love it, it goes to the bottom of my bottomless list. And if I do love it, it's O.K. to move it around that list--I'll eventually get back to it.
I'm admitting to the fact that sometimes, for me, multitasking means blogging, walking the dog, and knitting all in the same day. I realize there are people who do these things simultaneous, and if you are one of them, don't judge--several times this week I held a baby, made sandwiches, did laundry, checked my email and Twitter feeds, and carried on conversations with a room full of people, all at the same time. So clearly I have skills. I'm just judicious about when I use them.
I do feel bad about all your blog posts I haven't read, let alone commented on, and the comments on my own blog that I haven't acknowledged, but I hope you'll cut me some slack. I'm taking a deep breath, lingering in my happy place a little while longer, and getting some extra sleep so I can get back to my knitter's life with a vengeance. I just hope they left a beer in the refrigerator. That would help.
