Finding Time


Today’s quote comes from John L. Spalding  (whoever he is?)


Ain’t that the truth!

I get up at least two hours earlier than I would need to just so I can have time to drink a cup of coffee and check out Facebook before I start to get ready to go out.  Many times I am late to wherever I am supposed to be because I underestimated the time it would take me to get ready.  My husband says it’s because I am “rebellious” and no one is going to make me do or be on time.  But I disagree since I am late even for the things I really want to do!

I was even late getting to O’Neill’s wedding!  No, the wedding hadn’t started but I was supposed to be there for photos, etc., an hour before I actually got there!  I have told Paster Dave that my funeral needs to be at least 20 minutes late or people won’t believe it’s me in the coffin…(NO OPEN CASKET….remember me as I was).

So what is it that you love so much in your life that no matter what, you make time for it?  And do you ever feel guilty for using time that perhaps might have been better used elsewhere?  Oh, I sure do.  What did I do with the hours I now spend online back before the internet?  And what about all the years we chose not to have a TV in our house?  I know for sure, I did not spend my time cleaning even back then!

Until tomorrow,

I remain your time challenged Queen


About thelumberjackandthegypsy

The lumberjack is my husband and he owns Arrowhead Wood Products; Arrowhead Toboggan and Snowshoe; and Lake Superior Furniture Co. and is the exclusive manufacturer of wood shutters for Summit Hill Shutter Co. The gypsy is me, and I have a passion for teaching people to tap into their creative side, even when they think they don't have one! I did not grow up creative or artsy and I was in my thirties before I started sewing and creating things. I am a rug hooker; artisan teddy bear maker; painter (from pictures to large pieces of furniture!); knitter; doll maker; needle-felter, repurposer; sewer; decorator; blogger; glamper; reader; vintage jewelry maker; junker; and now a shop owner. But the lumberjack and I feel our greatest gifts in this world are our four grandkids and our daughter and her husband and our relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been married for more than 33 years and most of that time we have lived out in the country on a hobby farm where we have raised chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats, pigs and beef cattle. We also homeschooled our only child for her entire school years. We lived out our dream of being like the The Little House on the Prairie and they were great times. I also have a personal blog: where I tell stories of what life on the farm has been like and other things that pop up in my very weird mind. I prefer "quirky or eccentric" instead of weird (sounds more fascinating and less creepy)!
