Interaction vs. Connection

Lately, I have been working on my llama (as a side note, it is coming along wonderfully!), I have been given some extra work duties and have been interacting with people from home while crafting, gaming, and other types of things.

As one who does a lot of reflecting, I have thought about things pre-quarantine and during quarantine. I have joked with my friends that maybe I should try to get out more after all of this. I really don’t go out all that much. I may choose to change that, but it is too soon to tell.

In my work as a teacher, I interact with a lot of people. Students, parents, colleagues throughout the school day and often longer. Depending on when I get home, I usually eat, study, and try to do something for me before I crash.

Now, I still work from home. While that looks different right now, I have time to focus on quality vs. quantity. I am able to (re)connect with people. The more superficial act of interacting less leads to more meaningful and deeper conversations when we do have them. I am able to share what I am doing and making. In the process, more of me is coming out and I am getting the joy and love of learning about others.

The llama body…getting closer to being done but still a ways to go.

So, how are you making those connections? How is it working for you?

#100DayProject Goals

Today, April 7, 2020 begins the 100 Day Project and I have decided to make my project two-fold in that I will be crocheting, but I am going to alternate between my Llama and my Mosaic projects. I’ve put more information on each of the projects from The Crochet Crowd here in case you decide that you want to work on these. I’ve been working on these projects (I mentioned them in a previous post, I think!) but I wanted to give you a picture of both projects to see where I start today.

My goal is to finish both of these projects in 100 days, which I think is doable…and even if I don’t finish them in 100 days, I am sure that I will be much further along for it.

It is not too late to start! Join along with me (us) and tell what you’re doing! I look forward to showing progress!

Take care!
