In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Reindeer Games

Well, maybe they're not reindeer, but it is a Christmas ornament . . .

I have the stitching for the second lesson of Cold Wind Doth Blow completed.  This is nothing short of amazing . . .I'm actually keeping up with an online class!

And even more surprising because I decided at 4:30 a.m. the other morning that I was not going to worry about any arbitrary deadlines for the rest of the year.  There are some things that I have to pay attention to--deadlines at work, for example, and Thanksgiving and Christmas are going to arrive on their appointed dates whether I have the picture perfect holiday organized or not--but I am not going to make myself crazy over anything else.

I have even removed the notepad by my chair at home that I like to use for lists. Other than grocery lists, I am avoiding the lined paper with places to check off accomplishments. I already feel more relaxed.

And I decided that I wasn't going to make myself crazy trying to come up with a blog post every day in November.

Being the contrary soul that I am, getting rid of the to-do list--which makes me resent having to do all the to-do's--may result in being more productive.

Wouldn't that be a kick!
