This N' That
I am not one for keeping records or keeping
count of things and then December arrives and I
struggle to remember what I had accomplished
all year. So, for 2021 I decided to use a physical
calendar (something I have not owned or used in
years) to keep track of all of the various types of
stitching I am doing this year. On January 1, I
entered all the projects I was actively working on, not the
abandoned WIPs I may never get back to. Each new project will
be recorded as a start and each completed one a finish. I do not
know if it is the mere act of writing it down or if January is just
the time of year when you start new things, but, as I write this,
there is a week and a half left to the month. I have started four new
things and finished nothing. In any case, at the end of the year I will
have one way to measure how good life has been because I have
had time to stitch.
The other thing I am keeping track of are the number of days
when I do not stitch at all. Hopefully these are the days that are so
full of activity and fun that I just did not have the time. But some
days will be because I am too tired, too frazzled, too anxious, or
too distracted to focus. Recording these days will help me keep
perspective as the year unfolds..
I was inspired to do this by a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson I
found in the calendar: "Write it on your heart that every day is the
best day in the year". For me, every day that I have time to stitch
is a "best day of the year".
I hope all your days are "best" in 2021. The IRC is doing
everything we can to help. If there is anything else we could or
should be doing, do not hesitate to call ((240) 463-0710)..
Keep stitching, stay healthy, and stay safe!
