Message from above



Out walking yesterday with busy friend Lesley, the great putter-off of things that should/must/ought to be done now. We talked of the need to make lists. Lesley was much taken by the sunbeams through the trees, and captured them on her Blackberry. (Meantime I was helping a frantic labrador find her lost ball on the river bank.)

Lesley commented on the Biblical nature of the sight - prophets ascending in chariots, and so on. And behind her, a voice intoned solemnly "Procrastination is the thief of time, Lesley."

Well, I'm no prophet, but I know her weak spots......

Oh brilliant! Not only can you remember such things but can put them into words whilst dealing with a frantic dog and rescuing a ball in the river! Now that's multi tasking ♥

I was just going to ask if God had taken the pics when i read the body of your post. Not God, a phone.

Works for me.

Yes - making lists of what needs to be done makes you feel as if you are doing something constructive, instead of putting things off even more!

Flossie's turned into a soothsayer ? Or a Wise Woman ?

Beautiful shots! Sounds as though Flossie needs a little more retrieving practice. Didn't her Labrador pal help her?
