Distracted

I didn't have time to do what I really wanted to do today (knit).
I didn't have time to do what I really needed to do today (laundry).
This is what I did instead:
mousespottersguide.com
I got distracted.
On the computer.
This is a problem I will write about.
Later.
(and later is a problem I will write about...you know, later).

Anyway, one of the things that distracted me was
See, I was making a comment on a favorite blogger's post
(because I didn't have time to knit...or to do laundry),
and I noticed the comment above mine was made by a blogger called
How cute it that?
 Branding.  Shoes.  Beauty.
All my favorite things.
And pictures for eye candy (she is a photographer).
Needless to say, I had to look at Green Clogs' blog.
And I had to read some posts.
And I had to make some comments.
And then I had to write about it.
But first I had to get permission.
And then I had to wrestle with flickr to get her photos.
And, well, you've read If You give a Moose a Muffin, right?
From Amazon, of course.
I'm the moose.
Sooooo,
this is how we got here:
Ironically, the post I (first) read on Green Clogs was about a new year's intention to
"step away from the computer."
Hmmm.
I need to think about this.

Nothing happens by accident, does it?
Even being distracted.
By the computer.
 I really do want to make time for daily indulgences.
Like knitting.
I think my new friend Sarah at Green Clogs has inspired me.
