Two Down, Four to Go!

Today is laundry day.

Two loads done and oh, so much, left to go.

Today is possibly a tutoring day.

Today is the day I had hoped to begin sewing for the fall festival.

Today is the day I must begin advertising for the fall festival.

Today is the day I need to make many phone calls regarding several different upcoming events.

Today is the day I must begin practicing for leading singing at a camp meeting this weekend.

Today is the day I had hoped to bake a pie.


This is the day that the Lord hath made and I will rejoice and be glad in it.


Ever have a day like this?

  1. I have days like this a lot! I first think through my obligations–did I take on too much? If I know, deep down, I really can handle it, I remind myself that God does not give us more than we can bear. And if I realize I did take on too much for my own shoulders, I go ahead with the current obligations and make plans to take on less in the future!

    I hope you can get everything done, and I look forward to reading about all of it.

    1. Thanks for the encouragement, Victoria! I probably will be better next week, but things tend to converge at unhandy times, sometimes. I tend to second-guess too much and that can stall me out. Oh well, I love having lots of options, so I guess today’s the day! 🙂 Hope I can find time to write about it. Hmm. Never thought of that. Amazing! 🙂

  2. Oh, I can relate to this so well today. I made a list and have marked SOME things off but still have that many tasks yet to do that will take hours to do. That is not counting the fact that 8 of my 9 blessings are doing some of the OTHER daily stuff.

    I did get to talk to a friend earlier this morning. ‘Twas a treat.

    Do let us know how it all goes.

    1. Talking to friends is so important!
      I did manage to do the tutoring, and had three students, instead of the expected one. It was grand. They had so many very good questions, like the difference between close the door, sit close by, and wash the clothes. The poor dears are trying to learn ESL. I do feel sorry for them.
      When I got home, the laundry was not finished, but my husband said, “No matter what you do, you feel guilty. Do not beat yourself up.”
      AND my students had provided that I could take home an already cooked dinner, so no chores there.
      Could have been worse, I must admit. 🙂
