I finished the sweater last night! YAY! I actually like it and it actually fits! I took a lot of time with this one and really worked on getting it right, not just “good enough.” It is not the most flattering thing in the world, but I still love it.
I am giving a talk tonight on eye-cons. (sorry about the misspelling). I am not really ready, and I need to do some studying so I can actually sound like I know what I am talking about. I know I could talk knowledgeably about the process, but not so much about a general overview of them. I am sure I have the resources right here in my home to study up and not feel foolish. (I hope)
Today is warm, even if windy. I plan to take a bike ride this afternoon. Wondering how I can get ready for an Olympic distance triathlon in July. I can if I work at it. I just need a new bike. And I don’t want to spend the money. One of the local bike shops is having a 70% off sale this weekend, perhaps I shall stop by and see if I can grab a bike for under $1,000.
It’s all good. I have such joy in my heart to have reached this stage in life. I never would have even dreamed of having a life so sweet.
In fairness, though, I feel I need to share a revelation I have had. I do get stressed out. I do get unhappy from time to time. I have realized that these things are not caused by external situations. They are because I am inclined to feel these ways. I have gotten stressed out about the sweater I was knitting (see above). I did it with a group and it was supposed to be done by yesterday. I was killing myself to try to get it done, and then they extended the deadline to next week! So silly.
Thank God I have a program to deal with my own foibles. It is such a blessing.
