How Do You Find the Time?

"How do you find the time?"

I get asked that question a lot and I really don't know the answer. I know that I just do the thing that I get enjoyment from and the things that need to be done.

A single parent, a working professional, someone who loves to read, knit, craft and create, someone who is working really hard to create a good life for herself and her kids. I know I'm not the only one out there, and I enjoy reading the blogs of others, so I thought, "well, why not?" So here we go!

Planning Ahead

My parents were here this weekend. We had such a nice visit and enjoyed our time together. It was different in that this time both of the kids had things to do on Saturday, so I had time with just my mom and dad together. We had lunch at Hu Hot, which is a great Mongolian BBQ place in Colorado Springs. We did not need to cook dinner last night!

We also went to several antique malls, two of which I had not ever been to. At one of them, they were having a scavenger hunt. They had hidden a number of paper rabbits through the store and those that were lucky enough to find one got to pick something from their table. I found a bunny and selected this stool. Isn't it pretty?

So today I am getting ready for the week ahead at work. On Friday we have "Vocabulary Day." Students have been asked to come up with a vocabulary word that they want to share and design/decorate a shirt around that word. Adults in the building will also be participating. I looked for a word that collective refers to tools used for spinning and even asked on Ravelry, but did not get an answer, so I chose the word "Accoutrements" meaning "equipment with a purpose."

I used Wordle - to help me design my shirt and this is the finished product. I am ready for Friday!




  1. I love the stool! Perfect for a cat to sit on! Your shirt is even better. I guess I need to start thinking..........

  2. It would be perfect for a cat if I had one :) It's great though for my roving after I have drafted it and before I spin it. I had to do my shirt now because I know I won't have time this week.

  3. Can I order this shirt??? This is SO cool!

    I love the stool, too - but the shirt is AWESOME.

  4. You know what? The shirt was easy - I just picked up some transfer paper at the fabric store and printed it on my computer, then ironed it on the shirt! I figure I can wear it at fiber festivals!
