How (not) to Knit

  1. Finish morning chores.
  2. Sit down with a cup of coffee, sigh happily, and pick up, no, NOT your knitting, but the baby, who is hungry. Nurse the baby.
  3. While nursing baby check the sixth grader's grammar.
  4. Put down the sleeping baby. Pick up your knitting. Take a sip of lukewarm coffee.
  5. Put down your knitting .06 seconds later when your third grader asks for help with math.
  6. Spend the next 30 minutes taking slow, deep breaths and pulling your hair out.
  7. Don't reach for your knitting because your two-year-old has just collapsed in your lap in tears.
  8. When toddler is calm, take a sip of cold coffee and head to the kitchen to make bread for Presanctified Liturgy which your husband just reminded you about.
  9. Put bread in oven to rise, clean up kitchen, refresh your coffee, and return to living room.
  10. Do not pick up knitting at this point. Instead, pick up your baby who is hungry again. Nurse the baby.
  11. Change the baby while admonishing your distracted third grader to STOP FOOLING AROUND AND DO HIS MATH!!
  12. Put the happy, clean, and full baby in the bouncy seat. 
  13. Take a sip of lukewarm coffee.
  14. Look at your knitting.
  15. Write blog post.

 The other day I snapped a few photos of the flowers in the yard. The azaleas are basically gone now, but more things are coming!

Before Thy Cross...

 Before Thy Cross we bow down in worship, O Master, 
and Thy holy Resurrection we glorify!
