Catch Your Mintues!

Time goes, you say? Ah no!
Alas, Time stays, we go.
~Henry Austin Dobson

I like the quote above, but one thing is not so certain, and it's this: I do not always fit into the "we go" category. I can waste time with the best of them, and when I do, I'm not going anywhere... just staring off into space, woolgathering, as they used to say back in the day, or skipping my fingers across the keyboard, jumping from one blog to the next, not going anywhere, except with my brain. When this happens, time goes... without me...and my chores pile up and my creative juices remain clogged.

But not today! :)

The plan came to me fresh from arising off my cushy pillow, and here it is: clean only 15 minutes of every hour, and during the other 45 minutes, sew, read, create, dream, imagine, blog... This is quite the opposite of my norm. There is always so much to DO, that I can rarely find any leftover time for the joys of life. It's been bugging me that I work and work AND WORK, and yet, the to-do list elongates with the doing. Ever notice that (or is it just at my house?)?

So, this morning, I am putting my foot down and am reclaiming my time! Every minute counts today... and I am going to catch my minutes and make them work for me - for creating and accomplishing and dreaming and growing and laughter and freedom and play... uh...and maybe give myself a pedicure! :)

How'd it go? Are you still keeping track of the time?
