You know, I got up this morning with every intention of working on this:
Definitely time to get the base cabinets painted. But, then I also need to work on this…
Yeah. That wall has been like that for
about 6 months a little while.
Then I looked into the dining room that we are transforming into a home office/computer room….
Still need to move the desk, etc in here. (But, in my defense, I did vacuum.) As I contemplated the list of “in process” projects, my youngest came in and made a request. “Can we go to the library today?” As I looked at her, my heart whispered that time is flying by. Yesterday I had these..
And now I have these..
My list of projects will never end, because that’s just how I am. The calendar will never really be blank, which is a good thing. But today….well, today was really mostly blank. And school starts in 1 week. So my answer to her was, “We sure can.” Not only did we go to the library, but to a favorite restaurant, favorite stores, and favorite bakery. We lived, laughed and loved our morning away. All because I chose to “carpe diem” and let the rest wait. I will never regret it.
Do you ever find yourself just letting the dust sit a little longer? The paint bucket wait a little while? The sewing machine rest?
