The fates conspired against me being able to sleep last night. I woke up to the rain a little after midnight, and then around three was thinking about the book I'm listening to on the way to work and college football and all sorts of other things. Seems that my brain can create stress where there is none.
So, today I'm pooped, and really just want to be back in bed sleeping off this gray rainy day.
I'm also having an extremely difficult time focusing on the work I need to do. As the semester winds down, and students are trickling homeward, it gets quieter up here each day. My interruptions are fewer, something I've been hoping for for months, but now that I have this quiet, peaceful time to get some work done, I'm completely uninterested in actually working. I feel bored, slightly disengaged from the whole "work thing" and as if all I really want to do is sit and knit.
I wish I had some time to indulge this knitterly impulse. This desire to just sit and feel yarn and think and make things. To watch the fabric grow in my hands and think about the person who will be wearing it. To dream up new projects and think about all the awesome things going on around me.
Because really, life is very good.

Today's picture is of me and the girls at the Texas A&M football game on the 24th. We're all wearing hats I made, though you can't see mine. It's just wonderful seeing things I made be enjoyed by people I love and serving them well.
