Somehow over the past year this has changed from a blog about my life and my spiritual pursuits to a blog about my knitting, cross stitch and crochet. See, the sad thing is I’m not sure I have much in the way of spiritual pursuits any more. Between watching/changing/playing with/teaching animal sounds to Caden Bryce, occasionally knitting or cross stitching to remain sane and general household things, there is really only time left for sleep. And as important as spiritual pursuits are, when you have a toddler and a teenager, sleep is more important.

Does this mean I’m dissatisfied, or looking to re-evaluate my faith or, all the gods forbid, give up knitting and cross stitch? Nope. It means that I’m coming to terms with the fact that there are only so many hours in the day and there is only so much I can do without burning myself out. Right now, Caden Bryce, Regan, Erin, housework (ick) and my hobbies are the most important things. They keep me going. I’d love to go back to meditation and the like, but then I’d have to let something else drop.

What I want to do–no, what I will do–when Caden Bryce is bigger is find a way to work my spirituality into my every day life more.

So, if I’m not dissatisfied, why am I writing about this? Well, I’m reading The Way Of The Green Witch by Arin Murphy-Hiscock, and it is inspiring me. It has helped me remember why I decided to follow a Pagan path. And reading the book has helped me to think about how I can express this in the other things I do. I’m starting to make my list of goals for 2013, and I think a few Pagan-related things will be there.
