Potential Energy

I am alone in my house. This does not happen very often and I plan on taking advantage of it. My Dude and the Princess have left for the day, one for work and the other for her grandparent's house. My sister is off to school and I am alone. Ahhh.

I love my life. I really do have it pretty good but today is special. Today has so much potential. I could go back to bed. I can go for a run. I could shop and linger in a coffee shop with a latte and a good book. I could have a nap. I could cuddle up on my couch with a cup of cider, a blanket and some knitting.

Whatever I end up doing, the day will likely fly by and never reach the high hopes I have for it. That's the thing with potential. Few things can live up to it.

New years are like that, too. We have big plans, aspirations, and even though we may never reach them, isn't it something that we try? Good intentions are at the very least a start.

Here is some yarn with potential.

All good socks have to start somewhere. What pattern will I follow? Or will I? And who will wear these socks?

And now I'm off. Mommy's got the day off and who knows what could happen!

Ooh, I'm so jealous. I love those days alone and haven't had one since the baby was born. Just 5 more months and I'll get one too (that is, if I can get rid of the husband).

Hope it's living up to the hype.
