#TuesdayThoughts: Distractions


I’ve been working on learning to crochet, and I’m nearly through my first project. A scarf.

It’s pretty.

That’s largely to the credit of the yarn, which is multi-colored and beautiful, but go me for picking it.

I’ve tried before and it didn’t quite take, but I found a great video and I’m well on my way. Now all I want to do is practice, but of course, life exists.

It’s as effective a distraction as baking, only way fewer calories. So that’s a plus.

The purpose of this distraction is to keep me from focusing on other ones, deeper ones, broader ones, ones outside of my control. So much of the world is outside of our control, especially now.

I can control the yarn.

Sort of.

I mean in the most general sense.

At least the scarf should be warm. Winter is here.

Have a terrific Tuesday.
