Moving Past Overwhelm

I sat down at my desk today, and where I’ve been organized and chugging along at a good pace lately, this morning I felt anxious, and uncertain where to start. My to-do list(s) are getting longer. Lately I don’t have a lot of easy items, and I keep trying to finish things, only to end up with more action items in addition to what I’m trying to accomplish, while more tasks pile up.

Tuesday Productivity

I’m not going to lie, this picture is taken at this angle to hide the mess that is my sewing table (knitted Bongo Cat protects my sewing machine), and obscure the project storage that’s happening on the floor at the moment.

Lots of colorful knitted items, some still in progress, sitting in piles on a table, in front of a sewing machine covered by a knitted Bongo Cat cover, with a sunny plant filled window in the background.

Left and center are knit donation projects, including Afghan squares and hats. And then there’s Mt. Washcloth, which proves I’ve actually been busy knitting at all hours of the day.

Wishing you all a happy and productive Tuesday.
