Sundays in Resting Pose

IMG_2770I rather like it when Sundays are grey and rainy. Sundays were made that way. I’m working from bed again today. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but before it was out of necessity. I was forced into bed. But, I had to keep working. However, I’ve actually come to enjoy it. My body is more relaxed. My frame isn’t so squished. Can you imagine all the hours I was spending knitting in a desk chair, slumped in front of a desk? It didn’t help matters. Here, I get to have my new set up. Knitting basket in the bed with me, (notice Mario on the other side?) and a small table to my right to keep my coffee cup. I’ve become more productive in this set up. What makes it even greater is that it’s raining today and I think deep in our hearts, most knitters love rainy weather. We like to prop up our feet, show of our hand knit socks, grab a hot cup of something, and get busy with the needles. It’s cozy, it’s homey, it’s warming. Throw on something to binge watch and projects are finished in no time. I’ve been watching “I, Claudius.” Awesome. However, while sitting here, I was thinking about goals, how important it is to wake up every morning with something to accomplish. Yes, today I have to finish two bears that were ordered. Perfect. But, I also want to sell 5 books. NEED to sell 5 books. It may not seem like a lot to many, but if I can be working here, and my books are being sold, then our income should stay ok. The less hours Phillip gets, the more I have to sell, and selling teddy bears everyday won’t get us back on track. I have older orders that need to be filled. Books. It has to be books. And it’s not just that we need to money, it’s that I truly do want to do more than survive. I want to thrive. I want to take care of my little family. So, that’s my mission for today. Sell 5 copies of my book TODAY. It’s also rather economical. At 5 copies, I get a discount from the printer, which means I get a few more dollars per copy. If I sell more, that’s even better! But, 5 is a nice goal to start with. 🙂 So, if you haven’t read it yet, click here to grab a copy. Or even if you have, grab one for a friend!
