centering practices

it’s Friday morning and
something’s not right
let’s see…
i’m in my chair
i have my mug full of coffee
the cat’s in my lap

NO
something’s not right

i feel jittery
maybe it’s just because school is starting, i’m amped up.  i start noticing what i didn’t get to this week – vacuuming the dog hair from the rug,
refolding the blankets from last Saturday evening on the couch, the textbook  i meant to get farther into

NO
doing all those things would still not make it right!

let’s see…
i’m in my chair
i have my mug full of coffee
the cat’s in my lap

OH! OH! OH! (Dick and Jane moment…..)

KNITTING!!  WHERE’S MY KNITTING?

(and so I spent the weekend ripping out a project because I misplaced the instructions when I put it aside last June, and I’m just not inspired anymore…browsed Ravelry all Sunday long and finally just decided to create my own pattern)

Monday morning….  (you can all say it with me now…)
i’m in my chair
i have my mug full of coffee
the cat’s in my lap
and i’m knitting

breathe in, breathe out
