Curveballs & Grounders

Sheep baseball

Baseball terminology?  Why yes, that was the first thing that came to my mind as I am sitting here at my computer in the studio after an eight hour day on the computer at work.

I haven’t played baseball in years.  I did work at a local stadium from 9th – 12th grade when I was in secondary school.  So, why the baseball slang?

It just felt like a good way to start a topic on the #spin15aday newsletter.  I’m hitting grounders in trying to stay on top of everything and it feels like life keeps throwing me curveballs.

I’m asking myself, is anyone reading the newsletter?  What purpose is it serving?  Is it efficient? Should I just stick to the blog?

Here’s my number one problem. I WANT TO DO IT ALL! I know I can’t really successfully pull everything off that I want to do for #spin15aday when holding down a full-time job. Oh, how I would love to not have to go to that full-time job, but retirement is way down the road right now.

Weren’t we all told growing up to stick to one thing and be good at it?  I just can’t seem to follow that advice.  Trying everything at least once, twice or three times really gives a person a sense of it.

The more I type and think about it, I should probably stick to the blog.  I haven’t given it as much attention as I would like.  Maybe this is the one thing I should stick to.  So indecisive.

I know I am not a literary artist, composing choice words and coherent sentences most of the time.  I probably make plenty of folks cringe at my verbiage, but then again, this is who I am and once you meet me in person, you would be able to “get” me better.

So for now, I’ll put the newsletter on hold.  I’ll use the blog to convey the same information, such as the spotlight, upcoming events, more info on #spin15aday.

At least before I totally strike out, let’s have a better game plan.

Now go spin 15 minutes and post it on Instagram with #groundersandcurveballs so I will know you are out there.

Spin on….

  1. I rather like the newsletter- but it IS so much work, you should do what calls to you. Both creatively AND timewise. Thank you for all that you do on our behalf.

    • Thanks, Patricia! I do love the idea of the newsletter, yet here it is the end of the month and I haven’t put anything together. Maybe after Camp Spin 15 and vacation and once school starts. Oh my, already finding excuses. Thanks for being a great support for #spin15aday. It helps me more than you know.

  2. I say do what makes you feel good! Stress is not good for the mind, body or soul and life is too short to be unhappy. I enjoy following you on Instragram and everyone in the Ravelry group. You have been a great source of encouragement with the spin15 a day and with camp spin. Now off to check your store for fibers I may not have for my breed study:). p.s. I have marked suint baths off of my “want to try” list after watching yours…lol
