Long Weekends...

...are they a blessing in disguise or just an excuse to just goof off all weekend and get nothing done?

There is nothing wrong with spending part of the weekend recharging your batteries so to speak. But inevitably there is always something that has to get done, long weekend or not. Laundry, dishes, miscellaneous cleaning & organizing, errands galore...does it ever end? Not really.

If you're like me you want to do both. But how do you decide? There are things that I want to do and then there are things that I have to do. And just to make things interesting, there is a monkey wrench thrown into the mix and all the plans and non-plans end up in a huge mess on the floor to sort thru, clean out and re-work. It's enough to give you a headache...and it does.

The one thing that I truly know is that the things that have to be done will always be there. They never truly go away,not really...even if you finish them. There will always be laundry, ironing, cleaning and dishes to do. The piles just get bigger if you don't keep up with them.

The things that might not always be there are sunny skies, warm temperatures, a light breeze, rainbows, walks on the beach, bike rides, and spending time with friends and family. This list is endless and uniquely personal.

The best thing to do on a long weekend...spend time doing a few things that have to be done, but also, spend time doing something that doesn't need to be done. You'll be a lot happier in the long run.

Go Out And Make It A Great Day

Am finally winding down after a day of shopping, eating, photo taking (check out one of my garden daffodils!) and duck feeding. What a day here in Sonoma County, California! The sun was shining and the temperatures were perfect...for February. In fact you could say they were downright balmy...for February. One more gorgeous day tomorrow and we will be back to the typical winter weather for this area. So before it escapes...go out and make it a great day!

Never Enough Time

Do you ever feel as if you don't have enough time in the day to get things done? I do...just about always!

There are those that would say "Job Security"! But what about all the things that need to get accomplished that have nothing to do with your job? These are the items on your personal to do list. The list that magically grows when you're not looking.

I have a bunch of things that need to get accomplished in all facets of my life. I will get to them, but not tonight. I have even more things to do for this site.

The key thing to remember is to have patience. Patience with yourself, patience with your list and patience with the expectations.

Check back soon and I hope to have a bunch of things done!
