Well today it truly is mellow. Yeah right! It's been an odd back to school time. I feel like I'm running non stop. Well I guess I've been neglecting my household duties and someone finally noticed that I wasn't doing "it". Which of course is not true, I was still doing "it" but not as quickly as "they would like. Well in my leisure (huh) I noticed out my window that my roses were blooming in spite of this bitter cold. So I went out to bring it in from the cold. My young son was after a favourite shirt, which lay clean on the to be ironed pile, His words, " Mom maybe you could manage your time a little today, and do my laundry." Well I'll manage my time alright. I suppose bringing in the roses is considered to be frivolous waste of my time. Anyway... While I was standing and ironing, I was just thinking, look at this dusty mauve rose, it's all tight even when it's fully open, like she's opening up reluctantly,I've always associated that colour with elder ladies. The yellow, all bright and sunny, opens up all free and easy, like the sunshine, a colour I associate with happy young things. I know, I know I need to get back to "it". But a little distraction is not such a bad thing now is it? So how are you managing your time today? I'll be rolling up the rest of the garden, and doing the rest of the things I don't do, just doing "it". Happy Mellow Yellow, check out the rest of the gang at Mellow Yellow Monday.
P.S. Watch for an altered view of that chair in the background, coming soon to an upholstery class near me.
