I think I may have just figured out how/why Kim at The Contented Stitcher gets so much more accomplished than I do.
Could it be (1) Her husband doesn’t want to go to town every single day and insist she goes with him? or (2) She doesn’t lose everything she touches . . sometimes twice in one day!
This morning I was going to look at The Mighty Acorn, a chart that’s in Blackbird’s Winds of Autumn book. I spent a long time searching for my book. I knew I went to bed one night looking at it. I looked under the bed, behind the bed, in the nightstand drawers, anywhere I might have put it down. I asked Vince . . have you seen a booklet that looks kinda like this? I explained to him that I had been looking at it in bed. He said “Do you think it’s downstairs? You’ve been sleeping down there for over a week? By the way, last night I thought I was kinda done coughing but within 15 minutes of getting in bed, I kept coughing so I got up and went downstairs. Is this cough ever going to end?
I went down to work on Addie’s pillow and decided to look in the downstairs bedroom and yes, right there on the nightstand was Winds of Autumn. I brought it up, waved it at Vince and said “You were right! It was downstairs.”
Then, Vince said “Let’s go to town. We still have gift cards to the steak house and I want to run by the flea market.” I told him . . I’ll go IF I can stay in the car while you go to the flea market and IF you’ll stay no more than half an hour!” OK.
We left at 12:40 and got back at 4 p.m.
The meat store we like had a sale on roasts so I called Chad to see if he wanted any. Yes, two of any kind please. So, we got roasts, came home and found a place for them in the freezer, came in . . where’s that Winds of Autumn chart? Still can’t find it. Now I’ve wasted another hour.
Kim probably finished two pieces today while I’ve been losing/finding/losing/searching for ONE chart and running around town.
