I have a colleague who is a joiner. If a sentence starts “Would you like to” she says yes before the sentence is complete. I admire her eagerness, but for myself tend to be more hesitant. These days, however, I seem to be turning into a joiner…
I really enjoyed doing the MD SwapCloth. I liked knitting and putting together a package for someone else and getting my package in the mail yesterday was tons of fun. Special thanks to Lacey for being a great swap pal. She even hand dyed the yarn for the ball bands! I have also joined the Sweet Life Knitters and have loved going each week and knitting with a great group of folks. I’m so bummed that I’m missing tonight’s meeting.
In a completely different realm of my life I have also tried something new. Two weeks ago I went to Meal Makers for the first time. As they say, “We help you provide nutritious home cooked meals for your family that you have pre-assembled in our kitchens.” I went to their facility and left 90 minutes later with dinners for the three of us for 14 nights in my cooler. Everything for the main dish is there ready and I just have to pull it from the freezer. This has caused a dramatic, and positive, change in our lifestyle. You see, until this Bunny had eaten in a restaurant nearly every dinner of his life. It’s not that I can’t cook, it’s just there never seemed to be enough time… Ironically now Bunny likes to be the waiter and insists that we have background music while we eat!
So, will this joining trend continue? I have bookmarks for both Secret Pal 9 and for Sock Wars. I’m thinking yes on the first and no on the second. As someone who has almost finished (yep they are about done) my very first pair of socks, I’m thinking I would be stressed then quickly killed. SP9 sounds like fun so I’m thinking I might be becoming a joiner on that one.
Some final notes. I am not going to join any of the following:
I’m sure these are all fine organizations… just wanted to point out that there are things I’m still not even thinking about joining!
