Life Is Interfering With My Hobbies…….
All of my hobbies…..my roses have blackspot, my camera is collecting dust, some readers of this blog are wondering if I am still alive…….I am, in fact, alive…. just extremely busy.
It gets like this every year, beginning in October and running through the holiday season. And every year I say I am not going to let it happen. This year I will enjoy Christmas!
And then I get swamped making costumes for Christmas plays, desserts for parties, shopping for gifts……….But not this year. Oh, I have plenty to do. An angel and a sheep costume to make, a Christmas party at my home for the kids at church, an enormous amount of shopping. But last week something happened that has made me determined to slow down and enjoy life a bit more.
An acquaintance of mine was told last week that she probably has ovarian cancer. She is close to my age. Three kids under the age of eighteen. They will do surgery next week.
So, it stops today….I will enjoy my family, enjoy the holidays and make time to do things that I enjoy. Life is too short not to stop and smell the roses.
