Working on the roof

Today was a day of routine. I had a list of things on the "B" list that I've needed to do for some time.
Just because they were on the "B" list didn't mean they weren't important, they just weren't urgent. 
Sometimes things are both so they get pushed up to the top of the list. 
John F. Kennedy captured this thought when he said, "The time to fix the roof is when the sun is shining."
I think many of us are living at the speed of life and we're almost to the point of being adrenaline junkies. We fool ourselves into believing that we're efficient and productive, but all we're doing is swatting at flies.
I hope you all take some time out of your busy schedules to work on the roof.

Ornamental plum trees in the back yard 


  1. I'll be positing a picture of my magnolia soon-as soon as the buds struggle through the ice. Your plum is lovely.

  2. We're actually getting a new roof this Spring...I hate to spend the money, but hate a wet head even more!

  3. Roof is one important thing to fix. We changed our roof three times during our twenty years.
    The Plum tree is beautiful

  4. Short but straight to the heart - I have a lot of stuff that I've pushed to the side that need to be taken care of; this is excellent advice. Thanks so much! :)

  5. It's too cold here today for spring blooms to come out so I may putter around the apartment today doing a few "roof fixing" tasks of my own.

    I don't mind winter but am looking forward to seeing blooms like yours soon :)

  6. Hey Rick. Love the picture. We all need to take some time out for ourselves once in awhile. You have my permission! XX
