My mind seems to work better near water. In fact, all of me does . Just now, catching up on the washing up and I realised that, yet again, I had not prepared for the Festive Season and bought presents ahead of time as I plan to every year. Flu has robbed me of a week of leisurely shopping and now it will all be done in a rush. Suddenly, it clicked in my mind that living along with the seasons as a self sufficient woman, which is my dream and why I read wonderful blogs such as www.coldantlerfarm to learn how, is not going to happen as long as I remain the Queen of procrastination. Procrastination versus self sufficiency with all the planning and the just doing of it all that it involves. One cannot survive in the presence of the other. And of course, real living cannot exist where procrastination rules.
