That pretty much describes my entire day. I knew before I got up this morning that I would need my luck to hold to get done everything on my list, and I was lucky; my luck held, and everything I needed to get done, I did. Just in time to do the next thing.
The first hurdle I faced was this:
It looks like an ordinary walkway, the sort you might encounter anywhere, but, in fact, it is a time vortex. Before my son graduated from the Raleigh Boychoir and I had to take him to his choir rehearsals, I routinely lost 15 minutes when I traversed this path, so it was with some trepidation that I set foot on it this morning, as I needed to get my mom to an appointment.
I estimated that I had just enough time to drive to the coffee shop near her house, get a cappuccino if time permitted (it did, thank goodness!), and then pick her up get her to her appointment, and for once, my time estimate was right, and I got her to her appointment with 4 minutes to spare.
While I waited, I got to work on the spiky beanie hats I am working in orange and black as they are intended for a grandfather/grandson duo who are both San Francisco Giants fans.
My work did not go quickly, but my mother’s appointment did, and before I could finish either hat, it was once again time to hit the road. Two-and-a-half hours of errands later, I arrived home and resumed work.
Everything was taking me more time than I anticipated, but then around five o’clock, I finally finished one hat, and in relatively short order, I finished the second:
Well, almost finished as I do have a few ends still to weave in:
Then, before I set down my hooks for the day, I used some Red Heart Super Saver medium purple and managed to eke out this one small textured square for my 2012 North Carolina State Fair project so that I would be making at least one small bit of forward progress on the piece:
I don’t know what adventures await me tomorrow, but hopefully, I will successfully dodge any time vortexes in my path and get done what I need to, just in time.
