Time is precious. There is never enough and we can’t buy more. But we can be smart about how we use the 24 hours each day that we are given.
I’ve been using electronics as a tool to keep me on track with goals, to-do lists and all the things running through my mind! Often if I can calm the chaos of what to do next I can be MUCH more productive each day.
One of the best things about spring is getting to be outside more.
That means I can do two of my favorite things.
- Be in the sunshine
- See nature wake up from the winter sleeping.
Our family eats a lot of berries in a year. Smoothies, yogurt with berries, berries with brownies and whip cream, strawberry shortcake, sugar free strawberry jam. And that doesn’t count the plain ones eaten as a snack or for breakfast.
Mainly we eat TONS of strawberries but we love blueberries and raspberries as well. So last year our big spring garden project was building square foot garden strawberry beds.
This morning the house is quiet. Everyone is sleeping and my husband has left for work. This is my favorite time of the day. The quiet before the insanity starts.
My to-do list is a mile long and I know already that I won’t get it all done. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and just not try.
I am a totally lazy housekeeper. If there is a short cut, well I take it.
Time is precious and I’d much rather spend it making progress reading or working out in the garden. In the spring there starts to be less and less housework done because there is so much to do outside.
