Bumpy Lumpy :: Lizard Ridge

Lizard Ridge

It was obviously too easy to forget about this hibernating project, but this week, I finally dragged it out of two years of hibernation and cast on and off (the square in the photo above) in less than a day. Yesterday I finished a pink/purple square and today's square consists of bright blues. I'll be taking photos for my Ravelry project page if you want to check progress as I go along, but it's not likely there will be photos today since it's so gloomy and rainy. Of course, while it's not good for taking photos, this weather is perfect for staying in and knitting, so that's exactly what I'm going to do.

Counting

Tulip

It's been a "count my blessings" kind of week. I was going to blog about having a rough week, but my perspective was shifted several times throughout my little ordeals and I realized that it's impossible for me to complain about anything. Ever.

So I'll resist the urge to tell you about all that's gone wrong and tell you what's been wonderful about this week. I was able to knit, read, cook, buy flowers, play in the dirt (plant seeds and pull weeds), celebrate a birthday (my youngest son), go to a Cinco de Mayo festival, and have lunch with a friend. See? A week full of happy things!

The Paradoxical Commandments

by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
