The Joy of Doing Nothing

by Maggie Sefton

Yes, Readers and Cozy Chicks friends and fans----That's my message for today.  We ALL need to relax more.  Our lives are filled with so many things to do and take care of that we forget we need to treat ourselves well while we're running around taking care of all the items on our daily "To Do" lists, real or in our heads.

Those thoughts have come in loud and clear these last few days as I've relaxed down here near the Potomac River,  an hour and half from the crush of the Northern VA/DC/ Suburban MD "Metro Madness."  I didn't realize how much I needed to relax until I got here and just kicked back and relaxed.   Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.

Okay. . .I hope I'm not putting anyone to sleep, but those thoughts simply came in strongly so I figured I should share them on my post today.  And. . .a fun photo.  This cute puppy visited the Fort Collins knitting and yarn shop, Lambspun, one weekend in late July.  If you're wondering what that strange looking item is that's sitting on the floor behind the doggie, that's one of the marvelous spinning wheels that spinners use nowadays.

I think I've mentioned before how much I enjoy sitting around Lambspun's large knitting table while the spinners are spinning busily.  It is SO relaxing to simply sit and knit and listen to that quiet hum of the wheel.  :)

How many of you have sat and knitted while spinners spin?  Do any of you spin?  If I don't reply right away, it's because the Cozy Chicks have had some trouble with the Google account that carries our blog.  Keep your fingers crossed.
