Now I Can Play

The taxes are in the mail!!!  I know I shouldn’t be this happy about it, but I am!  It feels like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders.  Now I can play.


I think we should all be able to play.  Play keeps us young.  I find too many adults do not know  to play.  Thankfully, they are not knitters or writers.  Creative types seem to have that built-in sense of what it means to let go and play.

I’m trying to encourage Sam the cat to retain as much of his “kitty-ness” as he can.  We have regular play times together.  And we both enjoy it.

Yes, as adults, we all have responsibilities and I’m not suggesting you ignore those.  But I do hope you will approach your life and each day with a playful attitude.

This week, I’m had a bad case of casting on new projects.  We wont’ discuss just how many things I’ve got in the works.  But it’s a lot.


Maybe I’ll use some of my Rhinebeck haul.  Or maybe something totally new.  It’s fun to think of what’s next in the line up.  It’s fun just to look at the yarns.  Sam may play a little too much if I don’t put the yarns away.  He’s pretty good about it though for a kitten.

I’m also thinking of a few garden projects if we ever get consistently warm weather.  Might have to call in Michael to help me with that.  What he planted last year is for the most part thriving.

So what plans do you have for spring and what are you doing to play?

Whatever you do I hope you have FUN.




  1. Yay for mailing in the taxes! And bigger yay for starting new knitting projects! xxx

    • It’s very liberating for me, Michele. You know how the taxes tax me.

  2. oooh. look at that yarn. WANT!
    I’m crocheting. My daughter, however, has taken to knitting like a bird to flight. And yes, it’s a new version of playing.

    • I’m so glad you’re crocheting, Jen. I think of you every day. The yarn is very yummy. Very. We should be surrounded by things that make us want to play. SO good to hear from you, dear friend.

  3. I need to do my taxes still as well, I dread it! I’m working on lots of cross stitch projects, and my sister’s wedding shawl. I just want to get something finished, I feel very scattered right now!

    • Don’t you just hate that scattered feeling, Hattie? It’s nice to finish things, but you do! You have lots of FOs. it’s spring – time to be a tad scattered as we play.

  4. So happy you’re finding time to play. I know Sam is happy. Now will you come do my taxes?

  5. Well done for getting your taxes done! You definitely deserve to play, big time!!

    • I have been playing a lot this week. Now I need to buckle down and get some work done before spring fever strikes in earnest.

  6. Great post and reminder! My life is too full of responsibility right now – when I find that perfect place to live, I will be playing 🙂

  7. Let’s go fishing!! Maybe in Kokomo. I know the way via Tampa!!!
