Day of Rest? Weekend of Peace?

Someday...I promise, I'm going to schedule one. Just like that *snap*

Do you believe me? Nah, me neither.

I stayed up way too late last night finishing Spiralucious. She's not been blocked yet, so you have something to look forward to, now!

Today was all the regular chores and making up a bag order (since I helped DD with bead shopping yesterday, by corraling eldest and youngest DGSs while she browsed). But today was also a matinee symphony concert. I poured on the makeup, tossed on a winter white wool blazer over dark charcoal jeans and a black dress "t" shirt, a red heart pin on the lapel, and my black Birkis. Oddly enough? I might have been a touch over-dressed - the matinees are definitely a variety of attires - including the occasional blue jeans, tweed jackets and jogging shoes - but mostly blue-haired ladies coming from church.

No blazer here, just the black dressy T (notice the satin edging?). I think I feel most comfortable like this. Wish I'd have finished Diamond Fantasy Shawl to toss over the blazer, but that's been on the back burner for a bit...and needs to get done!

Birdsong mentioned on my 1000 post that perhaps it's time for a new look to the blog. I had to call DD last night to say, "you haven't started on the template now have you?"

"No, why?"

"Well, because I don't think I want it pink and pretty and Victorian and roses...That's Nana Sadie Rose, that's not Knitnana."

At which point my daughter began a serious discussion on the topic of my mental health and whether or not I have multiple personality disorder - HAH!

I assured her that having more than one persona did not mean one had a mental illness. Quite the contrary. I have a whole different side of me that I use as a designer and bag maker, and then there's the accountant, logical side of me, too - finally there's Knitnana. (Someone yesterday overheard this discussion and said, "She uses both sides of her brain" and that is the perfect description!)

We've come up with this so far:
Purple (was there any doubt about that?)
Everything knitting (cables, lace, socks)
The Meezer

I tend to think of myself as someone who's best suited to jeans, Birkenstocks, and lace.

Now just how she's going to come up with a blog design that encorporates that (tho' I did suggest some faded out photos of Miss Meeze, some of the knitting and such...) I'm not really sure.

What think you all? What visuals come to mind when you think of Knitnana? (Again, be nice *wink*)

Cause mentioning that multiple personality thing, well...just ain't gonna fly!
I hope your week goes well!

I think multiple personality is a bonus, not a disorder. Unless one of the personalities goes around murdering people in alleyways. In that case it might be a disorder.

When I think of knitnana I think of someone with a big heart. You care about the Earth and strive to live a more eco-conscious life. You give your time to anyone in need...and are always helping with a good cause. (maybe that is hard to put on a template though)

BTW you look beautiful and I'm so happy you had a night out and about! :)

That's a lovely portrait.

Right and left brained - absolutely. Anyone who can do numbers and creative things is the definition!

Are you, by any chance, also ambidextrous?

I'm all for showing different parts of our personalities in different places -- and as a birks/jeans/lace person myself, I completely understand wanting a place to show that side of yourself. I like your ideas for making it work (no help, I know)... :)

I think you're signature ((hugs)) sums you up pretty well! Maybe it's that nana thing. You are just so thoughtful and sweet! And one day you'll cover the world with socks!!!

I think everyone has different personalities. I know that I'm slightly different depending on who I'm with (family, close friends, casual friends, co-workers, etc.). I'm obviously the same person on the inside, but I don't let many people see the real me. I put up different barriers depending on who is around me.

Okay, that was too much naval gazing.

I'm all for purple! Long rule the purple!!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
