What have you been putting off doing? Why?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us TIME.
Oh this is an easy one for my eyes to rest on. The problem is action. Actions speak louder than words. Have you ever heard of that? I used to say it often when my kids were younger. You can still catch me using that phrase today.
A lot of you know me pretty well by now. So you realize on this Sunday morning when Al is napping I want to desperately get off this chair, push it close to the desk so the space to squeeze in, even a mouse would stand back and rub his whiskers wondering if he could do it.
I want to clean. I am procrastinating against cleaning. You ask what? Oh my gosh! She doesn’t want to clean?
I made a deal with myself this morning. I was going to actually sit down with Al while he ate. I was going to watch the Dr. Charles Stanley show with him. I did these two things. I didn’t even clean the cat box right a way. What’s one more turd to the pile? Really, it can wait, and I am not even wearing that clothes pin over my nose yet.
I did clean his bathroom, but how could I not. I cleaned his body from over night accidents.
Hey, I am still in my night-gown, does that tell you anything?
I will get around to it today, just not yet. I am not going to be in a hurry. I realize it will be waiting for me any old-time.
I told myself, relax, just do it, it’s Sunday!

There’s procrastination, and there’s another word I love: delegation!
ah yes, to delegate another soul to do the housework for me!!!! Ya, I love it!!!!! Thanks Jane
Terry I am glad you take it easy, cleaning never runs away.
I am psyching myself up to a really good clean of all the kitchen cupboards inside and out before I go back to work. So may be Wednesday????
Probably I should put my fishnet stockings on , it might go easier, like in your sweet picture? What do you think??
I think the fish nets will make the tedious job a big more merry!!!!! You go girl!!!! don’t forget to snap that photo in your uniform for me. LOL
I am so pleased to hear that you took just a tiny bit of time for yourself – and it was just a tiny bit, so no guilt allowed. I hope my suggestion of not dusting was a comtributing factor to this marvellous step towards giving yourself a break?
after you made your comment I thought, that dust will always be there, just forget about it today, so you did help, a lot!!! thanks
show me time, imagine asking God Most High, and we asked, show me time, why wait, i have no doubt that the world we live in would be total spaghetti by now, show me patience and i can do anything,
I have slowed down a little bit. Trying to take in more of what is happening around me. God can do anything including helping me to stop and drink my coffee. Thank you so much. I love your words, they are so true
thank you my friend
