It’s May 3rd--time again for Calendar Tuesday, which only happens on the first Tuesday of each month.
We'll start with the May picture on my Country Home Ideas calendar:
Next, the Violent Veg Calendar:
"I need to return this bowl....it has a nasty chip in it."
enlarging the photo will make things clearer.
Now the one you've been waiting for: Suzy Toronto:
and here's what it says:
"there are no limits to the silly things I can accomplish when I'm supposed to be doing something else.
Where does it say in the book of life that absolutely everything we do has to be productive, on task, and worthy of a submission to the book of world records?
Sometimes I think we get so wrapped up in accomplishing absolutely everything on our lists that we forget the tremendous peace and solace we find in the simple things that give our bodies and minds a rest.
We get so wrapped up in the glorification of busyness - slaves to deadlines and electronic dayplanners - that we forget to "pencil in" some time to live a life worth loving.
The truth is that doing it all and being it all is exhausting!
And, strangely enough, the endless scramble ends up making us less productive than if we just slowed down and allowed ourselves to do the things that give our lives joy, fulfillment, and real meaning.
So...in the midst of our busy schedules, our overcrowded calendars, and our endless flow charts, let's get off the fast track, scratch the electronic lists, and instead "ink in" some time to breathe...to giggle...and to master the art of just doing nothing.
Let's say YES to a renewed sense of whimsy and wacky with a few hours of unscheduled, transformative fun. I'm pretty sure we'll find there are no limits to the silly things we can accomplish when we're supposed to be doing something else!"
