I’ve been thinking about something. A lot. The name of this blog is “Finding Christi” but after 2 years of being on this epic quest, something has become clear; I don’t need to be found. I’ve never been lost. I’ve been here the whole time. At times I may have lost my way or been confused about the direction my life was turning. I have at times lost my voice. But I’ve always been here.
So what is it that I have been thinking about? I feel like the name of this blog should be a more appropriate representation of me. I am considering renaming this blog “Being Christi”. Kind of just wanted to throw that out there and maybe get some feed back on what my loyal reader thinks.
The next bit of randomness involves me hooking.
No, no. Not THAT kind of hooking.
If you know me in real life, you know I am obsessed. I always have been. A couple of my aunts taught me some basic stuff when I was a kid to keep me entertained. As I get older the more I find myself wanting to do it more. I have more crochet hooks and yarn than I need.
It really is a terrible affliction. Your house becomes covered in various crocheted items. And your friends and family and their kids and friends can only stand to be given so many crocheted things.
So this leaves me in quite the predicament. What do I do with the pieces I make?
My husband has suggested I sell it. But I don’t know. In a way I see his point, at the very least it would cover the cost of the yarn and I would be able to buy more yarn! On the other hand, who would I sell it to? Am I good enough to ask someone to give me money?
The one thing I know for sure is I want to make some various pieces, book marks, wash clothes, dish clothes, scarfs, hats, lapgahns etc., to give out at some assisted living homes around here. I would like to have a few boxes full come December. I just have to figure out how to fund this project and how to go about actually being allowed in to give these things to the residents. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
Here are a few examples of my work:
On health note.
My food this week has been less than stellar. It hasn’t been horrible, but could certainly use some improvement. Something about cold weather makes me crave ice cream. I don’t know why this is. I probably have my Daddy to thank for that. He always had ice cream and it seems like especially in the winter.
I’m getting ready to take the family Paleo. This should be fun, and I am sure we will all be going through some sugar and carb withdrawals. Please keep us in your prayers during this time.
Does anyone have a beginners Yoga dvd you would recomend?
‘Til next time!
