I Have Promises to Keep . . .

Many of you may look at this and think it's way too late to be posting winter poems, well technically speaking, spring does not arrive for another few weeks.  Actually spring arrives on March 20 this year.  If you live in the northern climes as I do, then it may not feel or look like spring until mid or late April. This marking of time has got me thinking though. Thinking that I better get may act together! No more hiding under the covers and hibernating till spring arrives, I have much to do!

After checking my never ending To Do List and realizing that I was not crossing anything off, but only adding things to it, I decided I needed to take a blog break to catch up.  I find that blogging, writing and reading other peoples blogs is much more enjoyable that say doing my shop inventory or getting our taxes organized! However since I can not put them off any longer I will be taking a couple of weeks off of posting to my blog.  I may still stop in and visit on other blogs, but as the poem says, 'I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep', so no guarantees!

Take care everyone! I will be back in March sometime.

  1. Good luck with your to do list! See ya later!

  2. I hope you get caught up with everything! We'll see you when you get back.

  3. I know just what you mean Diane, I may have to do the same soon. I’m off to an auction tomorrow, and if I return with half the things I desire I will be very busy for a while.

  4. Yes, I know what you mean. It's too easy to do the more pleasant things, that are never on our list. See you in March.

  5. Take Care Diane ;o) I know what you mean ;o) I have to do the taxes too! Uggg!! LOL! You will be missed! Big Hugs ;o)

  6. Thanks for reminding me about doing my taxes...something that I always put off until the last minute. I think this blah kind of weather makes me not want to do anything and stuff always gets pushed back to next week, next month or next year. Good luck with your TO DO list!

  7. Dear Diane - I will miss you but I know what you mean - this poem is one of my favorites. Looking forward to seeing you in March sometime.

  8. Never ending to do list - I know how that feels..... Good luck!
