auspicious lessons and pretty yarn.
I just have to share. I tend to let monkies get on my back that shouldn't be there. I allow my feelings to get hurt, and totally should not - can I say I hate being sensitive? Dammit.
So this weekend, yep - one of those "lessons" presented itself. Sometimes people I generally love are jerks. My inclination is to say "to heck with you and the horse you rode in on". I get undies all twisted and you know what - it's pretty much stupid. I am responsible for my own choices right?
The "lesson" came out in church yesterday, a pretty good place to learn lessons for me. The pastor had three youth group kiddos come out - each carried a box, one said "Anger", one said "Greed" and another, I think said "Revenge" (or at least that really fits me personally). So the kids are getting weighed down by these sins, until another kid acting as "Jesus" comes in and takes them away - the kids spirits are lifted, monkeys are off backs and so on. This just happens to be a Christian example, but I think it applies accross the board - I make choices to be angry and it does weigh me down, but it doesn't have to. So anyways, it was poignant moment for me, which of course I didn't think about until way after church. Instead of being angry, sad or vindictive, I need to let it go - ba-bye monkey. So there. (I might still think certain people are turkies, em. Letting go takes time...) Why did it take 37 years on this planet to figure this out? I was in the right place at the right time I guess. So the next time I am mad or pouting - remind me of this post, please?
That little epiphany aside, I got some Plucky Knitter in the mail today - yay! Actually it was a two-plucky day. I was able to snag some Golightly at the last update. Gosh, it is just lovely and so Tiffany-blue.

If I could eat this yarn base, I might. Mmm, MCN spaghetti...
And here is a spoiler of the club yarn - just in case you want to be surprised:)
