This week I have been trying so hard to catch up, and really wishing I was on top of things. I feel like I am constantly chasing my tail, and while I conveniently blame our week without internet at home, really it is more to do with being far too busy and procrastinating far too much.
That’s what I do when I have too much on my plate… I do everything but the things that I really need to be doing.
So with commitments piling up and a birthday party only a week away, I stand in the middle of the veggie garden looking at the shoots that have finally had enough sunshine and warmth to push their way through the soil. I peer under leaves and consider if that first ripening strawberry is red enough to eat (it was and I did), and I hold baby chickens.
Because that is exactly what I need to be doing when I have so much else to get done… right?
Here are couple of cool things I’ve come across online this week…
Aha Parenting – What’s the Difference Between Limits and Consequences? Love this, even if I struggle to follow through with it most of the time.
Laughing Kids Learn – DIY Chalk Rake – this is so cool!
The Comfort of Cooking – Wholewheat English Muffins. mmmmmmmmmmmmm
Becoming Minimalist – How to Complain Less. I’m working on it… sometimes
100 Years of Fashion and Dance in 100 Seconds – this is way cool!
