The sun got up before ME


I slept until 9:00am because I needed to sleep until 9:00am.  This is what I'm telling myself to avoid the guilt I lay on myself if the sun rises before I do.

So far, the weekend is my own.  This doesn't happen very often and I'm trying to figure out if I should spend it doing some much needed cleaning or if I should play.  NO, dear reader I cannot do both.  There have been times when I have pondered that question until there was no time left for either one.  I am obsessive that way.

A friend of mine showed me a beautiful coat she had made and I said "I wish I had taken the time to learn to sew as beautiful as you do."  The older I get though, I know this is really not true because the things I have REALLY wanted to do.....I have done.  If I did not take the time earlier in my life to learn it, it is because I was not that interested in it.

I saw someone knitting, and said "I wish I could knit." They offered to teach me. Realizing I would have to go buy knitting stuff, schedule time with them to learn, and sit down and pay attention..I decided if I wanted a knitted sweater, I would buy one.

Ohhh Pam that is me!! I can obsess over cleaning or playing until I get to do nothing except go back to bed at night. Today though I am cleaning some things, becasue tomorrow we have a family hike planned.

Love the pictures you posted.....very funny!
Love your blog Pam, and I have a feeling that if I met you in real life you would be one of those women that I would feel safe with, could be myself with, and would adore any time I got to spend with you. Bless you.

Some days I neither clean nor play, and that's okay with me, although I have to accept the latter statement. It's difficult for me to just be.

Screw guilt, Pammie. I would opt to play. And that is exactly what I am doing.

I cannot imagine sewing a coat.

I hope you did what you wanted to do most yesterday.
