Stitch Therapy

Discovering me … one stitch at a time

Thursday Thoughts

Hi Blog!

On Monday night I had piano class. It was so fun! I am actually kinda reading music! It is so neat to look at something that seemed like a jumbled mess just a few weeks ago and now (sorta) understand what it means! It really is like learning a different language.

It’s funny that just a few years ago, I would’ve been hard pressed to list my “hobbies.” If someone asked me, I would mumble something like, “uh… I guess I like to cook and read” but they weren’t really hobbies. Now I have SO MANY hobbies! Cooking and reading are still in there, but also cross stitch, piano, herbs, baking, fermenting, blogging etc. etc. etc. I love learning new things!

This has been a really busy week so far. On Tuesday night, we went to a potluck dinner at the boys’ school. Growing up, my parents were busy & poor immigrants who didn’t have the time or interest in these types of activities. I always felt so left out. Now to overcompensate for the boys, I ALWAYS participate in these events even though I pretty much hate them. The things you do when you become a parent!

Speaking of parents, my Dad was emailing me about the weather in Florida yesterday. This is a man who is OBSESSED with weather and watches the Weather Channel for enjoyment, so I didn’t think much of it. It didn’t dawn on me until later that he was sending me the Florida forecast because we are going to Florida in less than a WEEK! What?!!! How did I lose an entire month? This was supposed to be the month where I lose weight! And shop for a new bathing suit! And buy weather appropriate clothes for the boys! And look up kids activities and buy discount tickets and plan ahead! Oops. Guess we will fall to Plan B, which is “be spontaneous and squeeze into last year’s shorts.”

Happy Thursday!

This and That


  1. Really enjoyed this blog post, I always need a little boost of inspiration every now and then.

  2. Thank you! 🙂

  3. The other day I was just thinking about how many hobbies I have too. Spontaneity is a scary thing for me, especially on trips, so I definitely admire you going with the flow! 🙂

  4. You always make me laugh. I love all of your appropriate quotes in between your writing. It is good to have hobbies and I say yes, to falling in love with many things. Good luck with all of your vacation planning.

  5. Thanks Ginny! Happy Spring! 🙂

  6. I am usually not spontaneous either… just a terrible procrastinator! 🙂

I love to hear from you!
