One Day at a Time

Hello, my friends!  I hope that you are all doing well today.  I have been fighting against some depression lately (or maybe I always am; it's just that sometimes I have the upper-hand and sometimes the depression does).  Anyway, I was reflecting that many, many of my friends and acquaintances seem to have issues with depression as well.  Yesterday, I read a little book by Dr. Henry Cloud called What to do when you Don't Know What to do.  I was irritated because so much of what he recommends that I do is exactly what I am unwilling to do when I am depressed. (Duh, that's why I am depressed).  Similar to losing weight.  The very things I need to change are the hardest things for me to change or I wouldn't be in this situation in the first place.
However, Justice demands that I concede that Dr. Cloud is right. So, one day at a time I will be applying his suggestions.  I am considering forming a group that could meet to support each other in this area.  Maybe through my church. 
Okay, so that is me "getting Real with you" about one aspect of my life.  Back to the knitting.  Last night was knitting group and I enjoyed it very much.  Thanks, ladies!  I worked on the Hermione.  Here is what I didn't work on, but if I can tear myself away from the Hermione scarf, I will finish it:
It's called "Inga Hat" and it's too tall.  Rebekah likes it though, so it is staying As Is and I just need to finish it up.  Thanks for checking in!


  1. Allow me to be the first to join your support group.

  2. Great post! So true. I have so many things that I should do that I don't wanna to get myself where I would like to be. It's a daily struggle. I hope your support group works out well. I wish I could pop in from time to time.

    Your knitting is making my fingers itch. I'm constantly torn between knitting and something else. I hate it and then I look at all these wonderful projects you have going and I want to go to the yarn store, but it's Sunday and their not open on Monday and by Tuesday, well it's all just a dream wasn't it? Who remembers?!!??

    Loving all the pictures! I also loved your step by step it made me feel like I was talking to you.

    Take care. I'll call you hopefully soon.

    Love ya,
