Time Scurries!

I'm robbing time from chores (yay!) to write. Does it ever feel like you are doing nothing but chores, chores, and endless to-dos? All work and no fun makes us DULL. I don't know about you, but it gives me the feeling that time is scurrying by, and I never even visited with it!

Today I am stopping the scurrying!!!

This day, I choose to grab hold of some of those 1440 minutes passing me by, and using them for snippets of fun! I must! Must you, too???

So, my first little snip was writing a letter to my friend. As I began, very similar to this post, it hit me like the second hand on a clock knocking me down - in order to feel satisfied and like I have enjoyed this life, that enjoyable things must be mixed in with the un-enjoyable. It's true. 

Try it today and see if you don't feel happier all day long. (Will your husband recognize you?) lol

This is what I am doing with little snips of minutes between chores....
Which will eventually look something like this....



You can get the pattern here, one block each month = FREE, 'cuz Bloggerinas are very nice and helpful and kind and generous and love for every other Bloggerina to join in their fun. (What a cute quilt you will have at the end of twelve little months, that you know are already on a good head start to zooming past us.)


And just to prove their kindness even more, look what you could actually win if this Bloggerina picks your comment for her giveaway....



Sew much fun!!! And it all just takes the dullness of life's busy work and makes it bright and cheerful!


Oh... and I just found this, like a sunken treasure in a sea of blogs...

(Just in case you are sick of chores...)

I always intersperse my chores with something fun. Sometimes I'll clean for a half an hour followed by 10 minutes of whatever I want to do (normally sewing or computer). Makes chores a lot easier to complete!

I got your package yesterday! Thank you so much! I was so surprised at all the stuff, plus the charm packs! Such a great gift, thank you! I loved your Hug stamp on the envelope too!
