I am learning to embrace puttering. At some point every day I might practice my recorder (I decided to relearn it after not playing for 20 years)
These two blocks are for the WeeBee Canadian. Fun and fast to make.
Or I might make yet another zippy pouch to give to a friend when we're invited for supper.
I might take out sock yarn and think about casting on a new pair.
I might make a cozy for my Kobo. It was a gift and was great for travelling last summer, but I still prefer my library books!
I might practice some of the duets I'm working on with a friend (singing) This spring we're organizing a benefit concert based on the 100th anniversary of World War I. The songs will all be from that era and some will have an audience singalong component. Since there is an army base not far from here, we're hoping to get a military band or presence to help underscore what we are raising money for. We will be supporting a group called Soldier On, that encourages wounded veterans to keep being active. In this area we have a very good disabled skiing program, but would like to get other initiatives started. No, I have no affiliation with the military, but I am angry at what the Conservative government is doing by withdrawing support to the young people who have volunteered to serve their country.
So, I feel much like a hummingbird, flitting from one thing to another, but what a joy to be able to do it. Before I retired my life was full of organization, meetings, stress and remembering a thousand and one things. Nowadays I'm happy to be a putterer, a gadabout, a flibbertigibbet. Life is good!
