No time for any other things any more?


Just found out Command & Conquer Red alert 3 was released half a month ago. Ever since I played the first game of this series more than 10 years ago, it becomes my favorite game series, can't believe it, so many years has passed by! I've never missed even a single releasing day until now. And this new game make me think, after I developed this new hobby:patchwork or purse making(what ever you call it), I hardly have time for any other things I used to do, such as, video games, yoga, karate... Whenever I have time , I want to sit down and make something. Although I hate to admit, I gain some weight, hmm, I mean quite amount of pounds. Maybe it's time to pickup some old activities, even for a few minutes a day.

Once, a friend sent me a small poem she got on internet after she knew I started a quilting project. I do find myself there. When I do craft and som thing else need to do, I say just another half an hour and I stop, that's not going to happen, I just continue doing my craft.

My Wife, the Quilter (author unknown)

She learned to quilt on Monday.
Her Stitches were very fine.
She forgot to thaw out dinner,
So we went out to dine.

She quilted miniatures Tuesday.
She says they are a must.
They really were quite lovely,
But she forgot to dust.

On Wednesday, it was a sampler.
She says the stripling's fun.
What highlights! Oh what shadows!
But the laundry wasn't done.

Her charm quilt was on Thursday,
Green patches, blue and red.
I guess she really was engrossed;
She never mad the bed.

It was wallhangings on Friday,
In colors she adores,
But she never seemed to notice the crumbs on all the floors.

I found a maid on Saturday!
My week is now complete.
My wife can quilt the hours away;
The house will still be neat.

Well, it's already Sunday.
I think I'm about to wilt.
I cursed, I raved, I ranted-
The MAID has learned to Quilt!
