Friday Confessions - Slow Down


Well, I am going to try this again ... linking up with Mamarazzi for Friday Confessional.  I'm quite frequently not that successful at it and I accept that about myself.  So, here goes:

I confess:

  • I'm feeling a little cheated that summer just got here in my neck of the woods.  I mean, most people are full throttle with their outdoor activities.  I am way behind.

  • I took a look at my 'salad garden' and, people, there is one tiny, lone tomato on one bush and a teeny green pepper on another.  That's it.  Meanwhile, I see all of these fabulous posts of people with their bounty of veggies.  Well, I do have nice lettuce but, sheesh!

  • I look at the calendar and realize that maybe I'm not going to have time to finish all of my dreamed of projects and go on a road trip or two.  Something is going to have to give ... maybe.  I guess I had better get busy.

  • I have a tendency to think that I must 'make hay while the sun shines' which is not the most conducive state of mind for summer relaxation.  So, I am trying to slow down and smell the roses which, by the way, are one thing in the Pacific Northwest that are simply glorious and abundant right now.  We do get some pretty fabulous flowers for our April, May and June showers.

Well, that's pretty much it.  Feeling like summer showed up late and is in a big, old hurry.  Guess I'll go outside for awhile ... and just smile.  Now, go on over and link up with Mamarazzi yourself.
