How on earth is it possible that 2017 is halfway over? I keep thinking I should double check because this really can’t be true! On one hand, I’m so ready for 2017 to end and 2018 to end and Vince will retire and we can figure out what we’re going to do with the rest of our lives . . fight scorpions and rattlesnakes; find a secluded beach and sit every evening on the deck and watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico; move to Missouri and say bad words because it’s still snowing in May . . so many options! 🙂
On the other hand, there’s so much I want to do and time just flies and I never seem to get enough done. Usually there are several things I’ve told myself I’m going to get done before the end of the year. I can’t think of anything I really care about accomplishing in the next six months – just the usual . . knit, sew a bit, garden some.
My knitting group is trying to put together a retreat for September and I keep thinking . . I wish it was happening in July but I know September will be here before I know it.
Really, I can’t believe 2017 is halfway over. It seems like just yesterday it was New Year’s Day and yet it seems like it’s been summer for six months already. It will seem like just a few days and I’ll be saying “Hard to believe it’s 2018 already!” Time really does fly. Does it seem like it passes more quickly every day? Is it because we’re getting older or is it just because we’re wiser and realize the value of every minute? I don’t know but it seems like I wake up, do a few things and it’s time to go to bed again. It seems like it’s the first of the month and then it’s the end of the month.
I’m going to spend a few minutes this evening with my little handwritten journal and try to map out a few things I’d like to accomplish each month for the rest of this year. Who knows if I’ll actually get anything done but it’s fun for me to plan.
