Slowing Down to a Snail’s Pace

I’m not the most relaxed person in the world. I like to get things done rather than doddle along. I don’t spend a lot of time standing around thinking about how to do something, nor do I stop to smell the roses along the way. I want my errands done and all my tasks taken care of so I can get back to my book or my stitching. But, having a preschooler to shepherd around all the time is making me slow down and notice things.

Funny how pests can be so pretty.

    Yes slowing down sometimes can be so nice. It is amazing what you can see when you just take the time. Enjoy the time when you can get it.
