Tired, but . . .

If you wait until you are rested to get things done, nothing will ever get done!

As my 94-year-old Mom's only caregiver, life is even busier these days. But with a first-time ever home health aid things should get easier--once I have refined schedules, tasks, and timeframes for what needs to be done. Mom gets 20 hours a week, I get 9 hours but what is done for one can not overlap what is done for the other! Now I will have some one to do some of the housework, run errands, do laundry, etc.

Though it doesn't seem like it, I have had some time freed up to spend on line with my favorite knitting community. I have had time to get some knitting done.

This is Super-Natural Stripes, a cute little top-down baby cardi that I am working on for a friend's 1st Grandchild who is a boy.

I plan to make a pink one but I won't be using the eyelash yarn in the garment.

So, as I said, I am tired, but . . . finding some me time. It's imperative!


  1. that little striped sweater is perfect! Love the idea of a cotton blend. Just finished a sweet cardi for a new baby girl. Will post on my blog after she gets the gift... I understand the caregiving situation. Praying for you, dear lady. Keep knitting when you can, it will help. At least a bit, Been there...D.

  2. Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful words Deedy. I grab any quiet (or noisey) moment I can (laugh) for a little me time.

  3. Hi,

    I have a quick question for you regarding your blog, but I couldn't find your contact information. Do you think you could send me an email whenever you get a chance?
