Time: Your Choice

As Monday morning dawns and many of us step back into our regular daily routine we may find ourselves contemplating those things we didn’t have time to do during the weekend.

The reality is that it’s often less a matter of having time or finding time, as it is making time to do those things.

I’m a guest over at Karen Elliott’s blog, The Word Shark, talking about that very thing today. C’mon on over and say “hey”!

Some of the things I wasn’t able to give attention to over the weekend include gardening projects, organizing my woman cave, and getting a pedicure.

Yup. I’m heading to work with chipped polish on my toes this morning but it’s not the end of the world. I deliberately chose to forgo the luxury of getting a pedicure yesterday in favor of spending time outside in the yard. Wearing flats instead of sandals to work today is a small price to pay for spending time in the garden yesterday.

So how about you? What things are you thinking about this morning that you were not able to give attention to over the weekend?


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Dear Linda, actually, my weekend was absolutely fulfilling. I visited the peach stands in Lexington, Missouri, with three friends, brought home some juicy, sweet peaches, some other produce, and a loaf of bread and spent the rest of the weekend reading several books–from a World War II classic “With the Old Breed” by Eugene Sledge to a mystery by M.C. Beaton. The main character in her series makes me laugh out loud. So amidst reading, visiting, and laughing I had an exceptional weekend. Peace.

    1. That sounds like a perfect weekend, Dee!

  2. Thank you for sharing on your page, Linda. I took most of Sunday “off,” so I’m doing a little catch-up work today. Once that is done, back to the grindstone!

    1. Hi Karen! Thanks for the opportunity to be a guest at The Word Shark today!

  3. Great choices for we Pacific NW sun junkies. There will be plenty of rainy days to snuggle in the salon for a pedicure.

    1. The weather rules our life these days, Kathleen! If the sun is shining…we’ve got to be out in it!
