Our resident Mr. Cardinal, as seen from the breakfast table
It seems I can’t get around to posting more than 2 or 3 times a week lately. Good thing I don’t let this stress me. LOL I love the connection I have with all of you here…but I have so little energy lately. I read comments…sometimes I even comment back (if you have asked a question I haven’t gotten around to answering, forgive me!). My main focus these days is to take good care of myself. Which is harder than one would think. I am not very good at taking it easy. Sitting on the couch is right up there with balancing my check book and getting the laundry put away. Unless I have something to do with my hands, and something good to watch or listen to. This week I was spinning and watching Wives and Daughters. A lovely combination, I must say. But this means that the house goes by the way side. The walkways are obsticle courses, I haven’t put laundry away in a week, and the kitchen is never completely clean. I’m not complaining, mind you. Just trying to remind myself, and you, if you need the reminder – that there are seasons in life. I normally like to keep a clean house, but that’s not the priority this month. Resting, playing with my kiddos, watching the birds – that is what my to do list should consist of in this season. It’s no use trying to pack in too much into one season. Decide what are YOUR priorities, then give your self a break. Enjoy the season, what it is and what it isn’t.

thanks for the reminder ..I need it 🙂
Oh…forgot to say…Wives and Daughters is right up there with North and South, Little Dorrit and Bleak House to me. All very excellent, thought provoking entertainment. 🙂
I've been forced to look at my life this way for the last year – I just wish I had a nice reason like a Baby at the end! 🙂
I needed the reminder, Trina! Thanks for posting this…
