April 20

I just did my favorite thing. I ripped something that I knitted. It just didn't give me pleasure, so I ripped it and started the pattern with different yarn. I am now liking what I restarted. I had to give some thought to this ripping but I knew I could never wear something that I didn't love. I find ripping therapeutic. Mindless. You just sit there and pull string. And roll it into a ball. That's the hardest part.I'm good at making these yarn balls. I've had a lot of experience rolling yarn. The yarn store that use, offers to roll my yarn for me, but I usually say no. I like sitting on the couch and just letting my mind drift and my hands go on auto pilot while I roll. Sounds good. I think I'll keep some yarn around to roll on days I need to have this mind rest.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
