Do you ever have those days when the time seems to whiz by at an accelerated pace and you actually have to stop and think of what day it is and wonder how it got to Friday so quickly? Well, welcome to my world. That's how the last couple of days have been, a whirlwind of activity, appointments, things on my never-ending "to do" list.
For example, yesterday my day started before 7am, and by the time I got everything done, (including a doctor appointment, a very large grocery store run, a visit to a hardware store about 25 miles away, a couple of loads of laundry -still playing catch up since getting the new washer- and a trip to Laguna Beach with hubby for a business function) it was after midnight before we got to bed. Sheesh, set the alarm, and less than 7 hours and the next day starts.
In the midst of the busy days, I haven't had much time to be in the back yard. Oh sure, the pups are still getting their walks, and plenty of attention, but I haven't had time to just look around and take things in. I took just a moment to do that this morning, and was pleasantly surprised to see this lovely lily looking back at me.
It reminded me, if only for a moment, that I really should stop and smell the flowers once in a while.
