It’s almost August and I haven’t travelled since the beginning of February. For a while, I thought it might kill me. My heart sank every time I got travel promos in my Outlook inbox or when I saw a really beautiful place in a movie. But when I signed up to take my yoga teacher training at the beginning of 2015, I knew I would go NOWHERE until it was complete – for seven whole months. My last month is September. By my birthday on the 30th, I hope to have all my hours in and be a for-realz yoga teacher. (Yessssssssss!)
Because I’ve been standing still for so long (it feels), I’m not sure where to go first. There are so many possibilities! I don’t even know where to point myself. Just put me in a plane and don’t tell me where I’m going and I’ll still be happier than a pig in shit!
As for knitting and crochet, we’re not allowed any personal items in the communication centre anymore. That means no knitting for me. I’m finding it really hard to stay awake (we all are) when there’s nothing going on in the wee hours of the morning. Watch YouTube videos you say? BLOCKED. Yep. Almost everything is blocked. The moral in our department is a little poopy. Thank goodness I love my coworkers.
So, because I can’t work on my anything at work (and I spent a lot of hours there), and I have an otherwise busy schedule, I have no time to knit, crochet, design. It takes me a month to make a five-hour pair of slippers. It’s really difficult to be inspired and motivated when you just barely have time to work a few rounds of a project at a time.
I’ve had no time to spin, or dye yarn, or write patterns. Can you tell I’m bitter? So unlike me.
Travel. It’s the light at the end of my tunnel. Mind you, I pretty much have to wait for 2016 to do anything because I’m broke right now. Teacher training is a fortune and I’ve had to put some money into my house this summer. The roofers are here right now re-shingling half my roof because I can’t afford to do the whole thing. Hahahaha. And I used up all my time banks at work for the training and a few weeks off here and there. I have a week off between Christmas and New Years. The wheels are turning. Big time! I’m thinking of going to Brazil to meet up with a girl I met a few years back in NYC. Hmmmmm.
Here’s are a few projects I’ve managed to finish in the last few months.
A few adorable little babies, my big baby and lots of little knitted things. That’s what I’ve managed in the last 8 months. I have a few spinning things on my Instagram too if you want to go check that out.
I’m off to spend the day with myself and some fiber.
