Yes, I have been busy, Tracie. This has been my usual December for the past 25 years or so…because of being a church organist/pianist. It’s the reason I retired last year from my church position. But, after just 8 months off, the church begged me to come back. :roll:
But, I really need the money. And I do enjoy playing music. I just sometimes have to remind myself that my talent is a blessing from the Lord…so I should be thankful.
Anyway, here I am…overloaded with December music work again. I’m just glad that I never made it big as an entertainer. There’s no way I could handle the year-long touring schedule they have to endure. I don’t know how they do it.
I like my down time, and my “space”. There are many times that I just cut myself off from the world, and knit for several hours in my craft room. That’s why I often stay up all night knitting. It gives me the peace and energy to make it through the day.
Now that December is over, I can relax again. Bliss! cloud9
My birthday is January 7th, and I’m looking forward to celebrating that soon. Maybe I’ll talk my hubby into buying me a subscription to Creative Knitting.
