Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is often harder than to work. (Peter Marshall)

I've spend the afternoon knitting. There was housework to be done. And bills to pay. And boxes from the attic that should have been put away. But unfortunately I had knitting to do, so none of that got done.

It's really nice to be able to say that with a righteous air. If I was knitting for myself or my girls, it would merely be self-indulgent. But because I was knitting a get-well gift I can get away with neglecting my work.

(Can I also claim the podcasts I was listening to as being educational, or is that pushing it too far?)
