today i will....


today i will -


plant my seeds in my garden

plant my bushes in the front

go to baseball game

cut molding for boards

call woodworkers

sit in the sun for 30 minutes

read book

cook out on grill

call sister

watch a good movie

clean house


when did it happen? when did the above list get accomplished and i still had time left to decorate, walk in the woods, bake cookies...
something happened after 40. i remember when i was 35 my printer, kevin, had turned 40. he said, he was tired, lost his energy, couldn't do what he could at 35.

i understand.... when did i slow down to a snails pace? it was gradual, i do remember that. i stopped writing my list, depressed that one or two items were crossed off by the next morning. i decided to slow down (trying to trick myself into believing it was by choice), breath in life and not only move slower but sit and think (or was that doze).

what i once achieved in one day, i now can achieve in a couple of weeks. i've passed the torch on to the 30 somethings... the ones that are now smart enough, full of energy and endless possibilities. they still have their looks that come natural, are not fighting with the weight gains, do not have the lines on their face that make them look mean (between the eyes and downward lips).

so today, i think i'll go for the baseball game, nap and some hair color....

I am right there with you! I think I'll go get a nap in before the hubby gets home.
