241/365 bag lady? on Flickr.
I tried changing my purse into a bigger purse but that didn’t turned out too well for me. A friend teased me “bag lady” and it got me thinking if I bring too many bags with me. Usually for work, I have wok bag laptop, a lunch bag, a purse and the small tote. So 4 bags to carry from bus to work.Then I tried combined the small tote and purse into a bigger purse, but that hurt my shoulder. Usually what is in the small tote are kindle, journal, a battery, water bottle, a knitting project or a spinning project. Then later I switched back to small purse, but leave the small tote home, work laptop bag and lunch bag for going to work.  If I like to by default carry a small purse and a small tote, let be it. It works for me when I’m out I can put stuff quick into small tote without being provided with plastic bag from store. And when I’m in down time like waiting, there’s a spinning project or a knitting project or an article to read on kindle. When someone criticizes me, I tried to listen and if it doesn’t work out, then it doesn’t work out. It’s another way for me to get out of comfort zone.

As I take bus to work, I was surprised to find almost no parking for my car. I realized later that the transit station is being used for bus station for mn state fair. I don’t think I’ll go to mn state fair this year, but I’m grateful that I was there years before. That’s where I gather up the courage to submit my craft.

I bought a fold-able table to use for my loom to put things on. But when hubby saw me I ran out of space for work. He pulled the fold-able table and set next to my chair. He’s good at thinking outside box.
