Weather, Classes, Taxes, Headache. Relaxation?

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

It has rained a lot in the last few days. Tony and I saw slushy snow coming down on Monday so I’m crossing fingers that’s the last snow of the season. After all, we always see at least a little snow in April. I love the thaw and flowers of spring, but not the rain/mildew. I guess that is life, the up and down come together often.

I started a First-Time Toe-Up sock class at Little Red Schoolhouse Monday night, for four ladies who all work together. It was quite fun indeed! There is nothing like teaching. Nothing.

Before and after that, I did taxes and had lunch with Tony. My dear friend. Who just bought a bit o’yarn for socks and is going to try my First-Time Toe-Up sock pattern on at least one of them. Or at least he’ll try my toe. He’s an experimenter, so there is no way to know today what heel he will try when he gets to that point. I’m delighted he’s trying my sock.

More rain-induced headaches in the last few days. Today it did not arrive until almost all the class was over. I had dinner and napped the headache away. I’m hoping tomorrow it will be gone. Most of these headaches last 2 days, so I’m crossing my fingers.

I plan to finish the tax project tomorrow. If I finish soon enough I can go to Ann Arbor (Arborland Borders Books)… to the knit-in I’ve not attended since maybe before the holidays. If I feel crummy, though, I’ll just nap and take it easy instead. I have planned a lot for Wed/Thurs so I need to be rested and happy for that.

I just noticed what I just typed. Why is it I have to feel crummy to take a lazy day? I overschedule myself so much that I have to not do something I love in order to take a lazy day.

Sometimes you need “bathrobe days” where you slouch around in clothes that never get out of the house, hang on the couch knitting or reading or listening to comfort music, perhaps napping. But I seem to only do that when I am sick. Seems that every few months anyway, I should just take one to rejuvinate my inner self.

OK, off to bed (I’m dating this Monday but am actually typing it in the wee hours of Tuesday morning). I thank every one of you who have ever taken a class from me, or bought a pattern from me, or yarn or buttons or a kit. I love this life I live, although it means a lot of running from class to class and project to project. I could not do this without every one of you. Thanks.
