Objects in motion

I decided to apply the principles of physics to my day yesterday. You know, the concept that objects at rest tend to stay at rest, while objects in motion tend to stay in motion?

I had to fake my way into things. I certainly didn't feel like moving. I blame physics, the whole "at rest" thing....

I was rather delighted to find that even slow motion is motion. The beds all got made. We went grocery shopping. I baked cookie bars. Which, frankly, were the catalyst to regular motion. Which propelled me through the day.

And then something happened today. I began the day in motion...and this happened:



A baby blanket for a future niece.



...and maybe because I'm having a boy, I couldn't stop adding ruffles to this girly blankie.



....this heart, too. It might be over the top...but I couldn't help myself. If I would have had lace and sequins on hand, you can be sure that this thing would have looked like a prom dress from the early 90s.

That blanket is absolutely precious! You're a very sweet auntie.

I like your application of physics to everyday life. And it's so true: once you start moving, it's easy (somewhat) to stay moving. Hence that productive day I had the other day.
