The older I get the harder it is to stay focused on the one objective I really want to accomplish on any particular day. My focus wants to take every detour that pops up.
About the only thing I stay focused on are medical appointments since I am always so relieved when they are over. But everyday chores and initiatives get lost in a maze of mental by-passes!
For example… Earlier in the week it was time for my weekly wash day. I have been using the washer on the B& B side since mine is ” under the weather.” I got it started and then realized it was garbage day so I went back on my side to get my garbage bags tied up snd ready to put in the container on the street.
While on the street I realized my front lawn pear tree had branches that had fallen off so I started picking them up. Then as I glanced down the driveway several more pine tree branches had fallen knocking down some of my flower baskets.
While re-arranging them I realized one branch had fallen in my fountain. While pulling it out I discovered my hydrangeas had been squished by the bird feeder that tilted over so I pushed it back upright.
It was then I heard the garbage truck coming and remembered I had another bag to go out so I chased the truck down the street and got there just in time for them to stop and grab my bag! Whew!
I plopped down in front of the television and decided I wanted to order a book off Amazon an author was describing and saw where something else I had ordered was lost in transit and wanted me to complete a questionnaire.
I think you get the picture of what happened… that night right before I dosed off it hit me… the only thing I wanted to get done-wash clothes-were still sitting in the washer.
Oh well, I thought, as Scarlett O’ Hara would say ” Tomorrow is another day.”
So until tomorrow …put God first in the day and nothing else matters! That is the Main Thing!
Yesterday was a favorite day as Mandy and I took the kids to Bee City. A most unusual zoo! Me and my llama mama friends!
The birds loved Mandy!
And as for Eva Cate and Jake-they just liked buzzing and monkeying around!
