Creative energy

I am somwhere in between week 13 and 16 of being pregnant. It is from this point until 35 weeks that is probably the only reason women keep getting pregnant.

My energy is back within reason. Once in awhile I'll forget and end up at a friend's place at 11:00pm after a full suddenly gone. This is the period that basic biological imperatives become indisputable - sleep, exercise, food, water. If I don't have a constant supply of these four items terrible things are likely to happen to innocent bystanders.

About 3 weeks ago a fifth requirement showed it's face. Creativity. I have a need to have multiple options for creative outlets available to me at all times. Spinning, knitting, baking, small bits of writing, jokes, music, painting with Fenner. All nuclear home based pleasures, the more on the go the better. I am fickle and the itch I must scratch can change with the weather.

Last Tuesday an urge that has been coming and going for the past 2 years came back and would not be ignored. Like many urges right now, it could not be ignored and so, I warped and began to weave. It is nice to know that there is so much room for me to grow in this new area.
