Last week we had a morning like this
Followed by a sunny day. But I had started “reorganizing” – aka making messes of piles of things – just moving things from here to there. So I stayed inside. The furry girls and I did not go for a walk, even though they told me we really should.
And another, but still we stayed inside. I moved hither and thither, starting many things, finishing none. But my intentions were good. Heck! My intentions were admirable. My follow-through – not so much.
These marvelous mornings, sunny days, were followed by a series of gray days. Finally one gray, chilly afternoon, the furry girls insisted and insisted until I agreed to a walk. But a short one, I said, because it was gray, damp and chilly, so we would only walk down our road and back. Just enough to pacify the insistent furry girls. And we did.
Then it rained. No, no walk in the rain. The rain turned to snow, when we would have walked had it not been for the winds that came with the snow. No, I said – we will stay inside and wait till another day.
Another day – yesterday – dawned. Just a couple of inches of new snow on the ground, gray skies but the wind had stopped – perhaps we should trek on down the road to the Wood River campgrounds, which would surely be empty now, and walk and take some pictures. You think? Well, you know what, the weather forecast says it’s going to be sunny tomorrow, so let’s wait, because those turquoise waters of the river will be so much nicer in the sunshine.
Now tomorrow is today
The moral of this story: never put off till tomorrow what you can do today. You’d think I’d have learned that after all these years of living. Of putting off till tomorrow. So instead of driving to the pretty river to check the scenery, take some pictures and get some exercise, I will stay inside and see if I can actually get organized. I have emptied drawers, rearranged closets – I have done many things, none of which can be seen unless you really look, none of which are really complete. Maybe today is the day to really complete something. Just one room maybe. That would be nice!
