I have been so incredibly busy lately. Strangely, I took a week off work to get caught up, and now I'm closer to ten days behind. How does this happen? Yet I'm not complaining; it's better to be busy than to wander about aimlessly, trying to find something to do.
Yesterday, while I was working on a doll hat, my mind was wandering. It doesn't take complete concentration to sew strands of yarn to a cotton muslin form. Without thinking too much, I threaded my needle with the thread in my right hand. A few minutes later, when it was time to stitch something on the machine, I threaded that needle with the thread in my left hand. "Really," I thought. So I tried doing both tasks with the other hand and simply couldn't do it.
Idiosyncrasy... [id-ee-o-sin-kruh-see] noun. A characteristic, habit, mannerism, or the like, that is peculiar to an individual. (Thanks to dictionary.com for this definition.) It's a fun word to say... idiosyncrasy... can't thread a needle with my left hand, can't thread the sewing machine with my right! I'm still chuckling.
So what's your idiosyncrasy?
