I love to spin.So, I got this "great" idea that the way to squeeze more spinning time into my day in this time where things are so hectic was to make it like a game.
I am terrible busy and don't have as much time as I would like to spin.
I have guilt when I spin when I should be doing chores...
Set the timer for 5 minutes, every day, no matter how busy, and see how that goes and how much gets done.
Well, like many of my "great" ideas, it had a few pitfalls to start. First, I am not a "game" person, when people ask if I want to play cards or whatever, I usually pass (I have searched, but can't find a competitive bone in my body)
Second, under the pressure of the timer, I had a hard time starting the leader, then it got tangled, then I dropped it, then the spindle base fell apart because this spindle is not glued yet, as I am toying with the idea of a larger base to fit on the floor extension. (so why was I using an unfinished prototype? 'cause it was purdy and I wanted to play with it, lol)
After several false starts, I shoved it back together and commenced again (hear that timer, tic.tic.tic?) Now I get the roving all tangled (once again, from the pressure of the timer) and decide that I would be better off using the handee distaff, so I go get it and start again, and I realize there isn't going to be much on the cop when the dinger dings...
But by now I am laughing at myself, and laughter is good, and the timer rings and I say...well, that was a start, and there is always tomorrow!
