a. to mind one's own business: Don't worry about my work - just tend to your knitting.
b. to devote oneself to one's assignments or responsibilities: Years of sticking to his knitting finally paid off.
I am fortunate that I like to knit. Last night on my way from work to a new meeting, I stopped at the yarn shop and bought a new project to knit. I have been working for months on a very intricate lacy baby blanket for a neighbor's baby. One of my favorite docs at work is pregnant with her first baby, and it is a girl and I thought that working on big needles and big pink yarn and knocking out a blanket in a weekend would be a good thing. The fact that the yarn costs approximately $100. is another issue entirely. Good yarn is not cheap.
At the meeting, I sat and knit and kept my mouth shut. Not a good thing for this alcoholic.
I have my granddaughters with me this weekend and that is good. I made a big breakfast of bacon and eggs and fried potatoes. We will go shopping probably and then get dressed up and go to church. It will be nice. Imagine me, a nice nana who takes her granddaughters to church.
By the Grace of God, no matter how I feel, I can behave like the person I want to be.
