Wants verses Reality

Today I wanted to have time to take pictures of all the knitted and hand spun projects that I completed this weekend. Well that did not happen.

The reality of the day was I was up slightly before 3 am with Eric. I thought it was just a nightmare that I could not wake him up from to calm him down and put him back to sleep.  It took me a while for me to wake up and determine he needed meds. So meds were given and I was still by his bed until around 4:30 am when I decided that I just must have a cuppa tea.  So I went to the kitchen and made myself a cold glass of iced chai. I just love the Oregon Chai. He was calm enough for me to get some knitting done. When John got up I went back to sleep for a couple of hours and woke just in time to get Eric out the door and get myself ready for the 9 am appointment that I had.

After a late breakfast with more tea I decided that I was going to be utterly useless without some sleep. Looking back on the day I now find it interesting that my nap was the length of time I was up with Eric. Don't you just love those random thoughts? Then some lunch and a little cleaning and before I knew it Eric was home from school. Another random thought, it is almost time for another Goodwill run.

I dug into some nice fluff I got from Kathy, { Kathy's blog }and I just might have enough for a small shawl if I don't ply the yarn other wise if I ply it it will be a nice scarf. It is simply perfect.

Dinner was one of those just grab what ever is in front of the freezer kinda nights. Pictures tomorrow if I get sleep tonight.  Well it is now after 10 pm and I am now a pumpkin so have a great night and enjoy your families.

I buy the Oregon Chai and keep it stocked in the house. I have a cup ever day, hot or iced depending on the weather. I have not received any form of payment for this blog.
