focus and intention

the gift of unexpected time is a double-edged sword - it's so very easy for me to fritter it away like the grasshopper who fiddled while the ants prepared for the winter. and so, while i let myself ease into my day, i've decided i need to set some focus and intention.

today, as promised, my main focus will be on writing. but i have dinner to think about... (pork chops)... laundry to attend to (two loads of dark colds)...and a living room and writing room in serious need of some domestic-goddess attention (zone 5 in flylady's terms).

additionally, i'm going to make time to take care of myself, too - tea with laura and yoga.

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.

I would have bypassed the jobs and put my feet up with a nice cup of tea.

Well done you.

You are so organized....I need you to teach me,lol. Do what you have to, but make time for yourself.

Hi Annie. Sigh. I wish that I was able to do what you do...the creating, the writing, the organizing and even the domestic goddess chores! Those are some of the things that fill me up, being a mother and all. The good thing is that, by working in the middle school, I have my summers! Yay! Thanks for letting me share your days. :)

Tea with Laura and Yoga sounds like a wonderful gift.
I love your new closing, "the war will end." Amen, Sista to that.
