Today is the first day of National Blog Posting Month & throughout the blogosphere, people are trying to figure out what to write about for the next 30 days. November is also NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and NaKniSweMo (National Knit a Sweater Month). I think it’s safe to say I won’t be participating in either of those; I know you’re stunned. Posting once a day to ye olde blog? I should be able to manage that; should being the keyword in that sentence.
I’ve come up with a couple of themes to help me out on days when I’m completely dragging, but I won’t have a theme for every day of the week:
- Tuesdays will continue to be NASCAR Tuesdays, or at least I’ll try to report on Tuesdays more faithfully (no clue what I’ll do after the final race on the 18th);
- WIP Wednesday seems to be the popular way to go;
- I’m debating doing Photo Friday, but I just don’t take as many pictures these days;
- SELF-ish Sunday, where I wrap up how I’m doing that week in my feeble attempts to de-slobify myself
Today’s SELF-ish tip: Make Your Bed. I’m a long-time bed not-maker. I spend virtually all of my
time at home in my room and 97% of that time in my bed. It’s my island, my sanctuary. It’s big enough to hold everything I need; I can belly flop on it and type on my computer; if I doze off, I’m already in bed so I don’t have to worry about being curled up in a cramped position – it’s perfect. It’s also really bad for the mattress, not to mention probably doesn’t help my insomnia any. However, I didn’t want to start the first day on the wrong foot, so I caved in to the pressure.
Yesterday, Melissa asked: "I really like the Buckeye DNA scarf, what pattern is that?" I guess that would be the problem with my renaming every pattern I knit; no one knows what in the heck I’m talking about; the pattern is Rosalind from the May 2006 MagKnits.
