Well, here I am for my Wednesday morning post – it seems as if my work from home day has become my blog day. The problem is that I don’t actually have a lot to show you. In fact, I just have rambling. I think Cieara took my camera, so the best picture I got was this with my phone…isn’t that a crappy picture? It was supposed to give you an idea of the day here – its overcast, humid, foggy….and everything is so damp. Ugh. Its supposed to be like this all week – with periods of rain to break it up. I could use a little sun right about now…
I was hoping to have pictures of some yarn I bought on Ravelry – I’ve been stalking the Destash group, and bought some really pretty yarn. I’ve been waiting it to come in all week – doesn’t it seem like waiting for yarn is the longest time in the world? Of course, I don’t remember when I actually bought it so I think I start checking the mailbox the next day.
Larry has been borrowing my laptop at night to play an online game – and it really made me realize that I’m just a wee bit addicted to my computer. I blog, read blogs, read Ravelry forums, and do Facebook, and read the news. And chat with people on AIM or Facebook. But now that he’s been using the laptop, I’ve been knitting. But I fight the urge to put down my knitting, take back the computer, and go online. So maybe its good that he’s playing now – I think that I need to balance online with real life. This comes at a time when I’m wondering what the deal on Twitter is and why people like it – I don’t think I would, but want to see what the hype is about – but worry – that’s online all the time – I’m having a hard time letting go as it is!
I really enjoy reading blogs – I get a lot of inspiration from seeing what other people do – but its hard to keep up. And its hard to blog as much as I used to do – my being online has impacted how much I knit – and not knitting as much leads to posts like this where I don’t have anything to show that you haven’t seen already. It sort of seems to me that people are blogging less overall. Is that because they are on other things now? Or is it that real life is creeping up for everyone? So what about you? Do you still blog? Are you on Facebook, Twitter, etc? How are you balancing real life with online life? Should I Twitter? Should I just make Larry get his own laptop? 🙂
I am going on a yarn crawl with my knitting group this Saturday – I’m really looking forward to it – its been a while since we have been on one, and they are always fun. We are going to Kraemer’s and Knitters Edge – which is a relatively new store in Bethlehem. And lunch. And hopefully some knitting time…since its worldwide knit in public day! I am not planning on buying much, but it will be fun to spend the day with friends and yarn. Always a nice combo, right?
OK, I need to go work….have a great rest of the week, and I hope its sunny where you are!
