This photo reminds me of thoughful contemplation. Something that I have not had time for lately. Something that I do need to keep in my life, along with a schedule. I have always had some sort of timeline that I have followed. I think I have always been llike that. In Home ec, remember "home ec"? My teachers would have us list out each function, who would be doing it, at what time, and how ling it would take. Once our schedule was approved we could go at our task...in the kitchen. So I, like my Mom, have had laundry days, cleaning days, grocery time...etc.

"thar she blows Cap'n"

Like the photo above, my shcedule has been just billowing out of control. The list getting bigger, but no organization of it. The main culprit, always being available. Like a sail not tied down correctly. I love how the curtains blow in the wind. They always get pulled back into position once the energy of the wind escapes, and yet are ready for the next beautiful breeze.
Here is to a good day of sailing!

Great picture Mary!
I have days for everything.

OH if we don't have a schedule for ourselves other people will surely give us one, won't they?! I've been hopping when I'd rather be sitting :)

I gave up on trying to schedule... it got me too stressed! =) I make notes each day, keep a calendar for important dates, and if I get 75% done by the end of each day, I'm happy. heehee

H--mm scheduling? Is that where we actually have control of our time? What a novel idea :) In other words, help.

What a sweet post, Mary! I love the comparison of the blowing curtain with the schedule...oh, how I can relate. That is such a serene picture. Good luck with your sailing, Mary! You can do it!
