Out Of Control

I'd always heard it said that time goes faster as one gets older, but this is ridiculous.  I know it was just the other night when I looked up at the full moon, and don't you know it was back again last night?  A whole month gone by and I missed it?  Shadows on the barn wall show up in completely different places in the morning, and the girls have to go in by 7 p.m. now.  It seems to me the world is spinning out of control here, and what's up with that?

Another example is that I run out of day before I run out of chores.  My to-do list in the morning turns into my not-done list at night.  All my good intentions aren't worth a tinker's damn.  My mother used to say, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."  Okay, Mother, I'm going to give it a good try today.  We'll see how much I can get done before the moon comes up again.  We'll see.

Those long summer days gone..that's what is shortening our lives...who wants to stay up when it is so dark outside.?
Luckily this week, that full Havervest moon, brightens the sky.

Time to get out the flannel sheets and put the sandals away.

Yep...Shine on, Shine on Harvest Moon, up in the sky...you get the picture! That was one of the few songs that my folks sung! Fun memories!
