Be Late For Something Day

Modern living and society puts incredible pressures on us to meet challenging deadlines, observe rules and regulations, and to regulate our lives by tight schedules. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just stop for a little bit and see what happens?

Be Late For Something Day encourages you to take a step back from your schedule and intentionally be late for something – remember that things can go on without you, and maybe it’s not all quite as important as you thought; after all, you need some ‘me time’!

In 1956, Les Waas founded Procrastinators’ Club of America. Shortly after, the club’s committee designated September 5 as Be Late for Something Day to promote the positive parts of procrastination. “Most people think they don’t have time to stop and smell the roses—this day tries to alleviate that factor,” Waas says.

my dear friend Garfield is pretty good at this:

and as I am not very good at this my life drowns in work the last couple of days and Ludwig will have to wait a bit longer to have hair, sorry for the delay

the knitting and a pizza

oh, Bloggy, your last comment was a bit rude, don’t you think? Readers do you agree with me? wasn’t Bloggy a little snappish?
But Bloggy, you know I’m nice and will show you more of my knitting now. It is lace, sort of, as you suspected. I’m knitting an afghan with a very pretty lace pattern by Herbert Niebling (link to his ravelry pattern page). It’s his “Eichenlaub” (oakleaves) and I’m using worsted weight yarn instead of lace weight because ever since I’ve seen the Hemlock Ring Blanket I decided that any beautiful doily/lace/shawl pattern could be turned into an unique afghan/throw by changing yarn weight. And there I go now knitting a warming throw for my couch in the middle of summer heat.
and I made pizza today, I’m still getting used to my new oven and this pizza turned out better than any before it. I’m admitting I feel a little proud.
