It started with a flicker…

The first minute was nothing really.There was just a flicker like a skipped heartbeat in time.  But within moments that flicker burst into flames filling his vision, his whole world.  What he was seeing was all he wanted to see, something so beautiful, almost too beautiful to bear.  His newborn daughter.

Wednesday, lots of beginnings…

I’m really good at beginning projects.
I like planning my next great idea.   
I love the shopping for the parts and pieces.   
I have fun getting everything ready.
Then I begin the project, whatever it may be, and it’s great.

Then I run into a problem.
It’s procrastination, I think.
But maybe not.

What happens is I come up with another idea.
 I start thinking and planning and getting everything that’s needed.

yayAnd I start the new great thing.
Of course , that leaves the previous great thing undone.

I have decided I am not going to start anything new until I finish the
afghan
curtain panels
cross-stitch picture
Teddy’s box
recipe book
pattern book
 storage closet organizing
guest closet organizing
hem 2 pair of pants

this is getting embarrassing so I’ll stop, although, there is more.

Today, I think I need to finish something before there is another beginning.

Today is Tuesday, November 2, 2010

 

Ten things about today:

  1. Today is the end of campaign ads
  2. Today is the end of those annoying campaign telephone calls
  3. Today people vote
  4. Today someone wins
  5. Today someone loses
  6. Today begins the media experts telling us who voted and why they voted the way they did–or did not
  7. Today is the beginning of broken promises
  8. Today begins the “why I cannot do what I said I would do if elected”
  9. Today the blame game starts; when all the big talk of campaigns becomes the small talk of politics
  10. Today is just another day with nothing new under the sun
