That is the question. Is it better to have a chapter of a book under ones belt or is it better to knit for a few rows? This is my constant dilemma. I work 8 hours a day and by the time dinner is over (good food takes more time than fast food), errands and chores finished for the day, time's up, I'm beat, the day is over.
With intent, I checked this book out from the library, but after it sat for a couple of weeks, I realized there were more books on my nightstand than I could get to. I was returning it last Saturday when a friend called to say she'd be late for lunch. I picked it up, started to read, and I couldn't put it down. Instead of returning the book I renewed it (I love on-line library services) and plan to finish it as soon as possible.
And then, there is the knitting project which has been waiting for its cast on. My intent when purchasing the beads was to start right away, but as you can see, the project is languishing. This is not due to lack of interest, but due to lack of sitting time, which is the same problem I am having with the book(s). No matter how I plan my days, in the end, there just isn't enough time to fit in two of my favorite things.
