Hey, time! Where did you go?

Did you ever notice...that there's never enough time in a day?, days in a week?...and, well, you get the picture....

I'm feeling that way right about now. I never seem to have enough time to do what needs doing. I don't just mean sewing and work stuff. I mean house stuff. I'm talking about wondering why your dog is whining incessantly only to realize you haven't let him outside since 7am, and it's now 2pm. Forgetting to feed your four year old lunch. What's that sweetie, you'd like chips and strawberries for lunch? Perfect! Come on, fess up. You've done it too.

But, in all the madness of crafting or whatever it is you're doing, be sure to appreciate the season. Go outside and get your hands in the dirt. Plant something. Walk barefoot on the grass and give the full moon some of your attention. Eat ice cream. Watch a ball game. Ground yourself and stay sane for crying out loud.

All right, I admit, this is a pep talk for me. But, I know that some of you are guilty of missing out on some springtime fun! Catch some springy goodness before the hot summer rolls in ;^)


  1. Thanks for this post madbird, I know exactly what you are talking about! Although we did manage to squeeze some gardening in this weekend, somehow we never found time for the picnic.

  2. I knew I wasn't the only one ;^)

    I love my gardens. Gardening is a great way to de-stress and reconnect w/the earth.
