Distracted

So, I am meant to be writing my MA as fast as ever I can, along with doing whatever work needs doing. So how did I end up here instead? Well, I’m also writing a sermon for tomorrow.

The sermon is about the parable of the lost sheep. I find that after reading the passage through, I need to let it percolate for a little while to see what associations it brings up. Hmmm… sheep, that brings me onto thinking about wool and then knitting. Before I know it, I’m starting to think about all the things I’m going to knit as soon as I finish off this MA writing. Hang on, aren’t the winter olympics in 2010? Yes they are. Oh good, that means a knitalong for the Knitting Winter Olympics. What shall I make?

It is possible that I need an MA-along instead. I could post the file sizes of the chapters each day, to give you an idea of how it is going.

Anyway, I think I have the theme for the sermon, so I’ll make some notes before evening prayer (19 minutes to go – better be quick)

New Year

While it might appear that my resolution for 2009 is not to blog, I can assure you that it isn’t. Rather, I have been so busy doing bloggable things that I have not had time to set them down.

Will I remember what they all are? Probably not. I’ve set up some draft posts to try and inspire me. We’ll see whether that works.

This week is going to be busy. I really, absolutely, must finish an essay by Tuesday, then learn ridiculous amounts of Greek for later in the week – I’ve made flashcards. Amongst all of that, I’m taking a BCP matins tomorrow, preparing for my sister-in-law plus husband and daughter visiting next week and trying not to knit when I should be working. I also have much admin to do and must hand over the details of two jobs I have delegated, else I’ll end up doing them anyway. Oh heck that sounds like even more when I list it like that. I’m off.
