A Balancing Act

Lately I've been juggling various responsibilities along with my numerous hobbies and it just seems like there are not enough hours in a day! Upon further reflection I have come to realize that far too much of my time is eaten by my all too accessible internet connection. It seems that several times a day I sit down "just for a minute" and an hour or more passes!

Well, no more! Since I seem to have no self discipline in that regard I've been trying a new approach. Each day after I check my emails and various forums ONCE, (which is usually by 9am or so), I shut the computer OFF. I don't allow myself to turn it back on again until much later in the day, usually while I'm preparing dinner.

Yesterday, with this new approach, I managed to vacuum, wash floors, do several loads of laundry, walk the dog, do my much neglected physio exercises, AND knit this little dress:

It takes me one step closer to publishing a series of patterns for Pukipuki sized dolls.

Sometimes I set the oven timer for myself...it has helped me realize how much time I am on here.
Lovely little dress. :)
