Rev Julie, host of today’s Friday Five, asks about unfinished things–those things you start and then put aside.
Quilts and bowls and skirts left unhemmed,
My life is filled with unfinished things
A stack of magazines waiting for me, and a pile of letters yet to be written-Some dating back to 2010!
There’s filing and stacking and ironing too
Thousands–really–thousands of slides that must be sorted through;
So they can be digitalized, though why I’m not sure!
Every so often I get the right prompt:
A deadline I’d be embarrassed to miss
Or maybe a question on Rev Gals’ Friday Five
A nudge that gets me to work
As Rev Julie’s nudge did today
It’s not even 1:00 and look what’s been done:
French tarragon and garlic chives now planted in Guadalupe’s garden
She’ll have a mighty tasty feast long before her feast day rolls around.
Apples dusted, glass balls clean and gleaming
The cardinal can take a rest.
But I can’t yet rest
Those projects have stacked up for months
It’s time to start on a quilt
Or maybe start to finish the book on my bed
It hasn’t been opened since before Advent One!
