Let's all kankucho!

In the Snow Mountains lives the Kankucho bird. All night the bird complains about the cold and vows to build a nest in the morning. But when the morning comes, the day is beautiful and warm and the bird forgets all about building a nest until night falls and he's cold again.

Tom, one of my coworkers, told me that story because every day we would spend 10 or 15 minutes talking and ignoring our work obligations. He said we were "kankuchoing."

Though Tom and I no longer work together, I still find time to kankucho every day. That time is often spent knitting. Or reading the mail. Or looking out the window. Or doing the laundry. Or whatever else I can think of that's not work. And once my workday is done, there's unlimited time for kankuchoing.

This blog will be devoted to those activities: all the things I do when I am ignoring my real responsibilities. This blog will, undoubtedly, be one of those things.

The Kankucho leads a beautiful, carefree life. Join me in celebrating my beautiful, carefree life, and for some complaining about the cold.

*kankuchos* I love kankuchoing! It's my favorite part of the day. Especially because it's all day long!

Yay for Brenda on the web! Happy knitting!

Tom gave me the bird. It's actually wooden, not knitted. Though I probably should knit one . . . hmmm . . .
