PROCRASTINATION - TIME THIEF

July 10, 2013

Crime seems to be everywhere.  Some say it's because of the downturn in the economy.   I have been a victim in multiple incidences lately of the crime of procrastination.   Several unfinished projects lay nearby as my eyelids gently close for a much needed nap.  I can imagine the completed crafts; a personally designed quilt, a crocheted baby hat and blanket, a family history album bursting with stories, documents and pictures, and my box of old photos all  organized, labeled and scanned.. 

This blog may be the biggest thief of my time, because I only have two followers.

WHATEVER HAPPENED to MAY DAY

May 5, 2011
"Mayday" is universally known as a distress call for airplanes and ships.  When we were kids "May Day" was the first day of May.  We made construction paper cone shaped baskets, filled them with fresh flowers from our yard and hung them on our neighbors' doors.

Whatever happened to that May Day?  If you remember celebrating May Day, I would like to hear from you.
