Chit Chat - FMS 40
These little birds are adorable - just having a nice neighborly chat. Sometimes I need to be reminded to slow down, take a breath and chat with a neighbor. Last Thursday I was unexpectedly called into work. I was out running errands and said I would be there as soon as I could. And then I started rushing............
When I got home I hooked the dog leash to my belt loop so Abby would be "walked" while I made trips to the car unloading groceries. My cell phone was tucked into my neck while I rearranged an appointment - and walked the dog and carried groceries - and waved to a neighbor as I scooted in and out of the house dragging a very confused poodle.
On my last trip across the lawn I called the library on my cell to say I'd be there in 15 minutes. While I waited for someone to answer I heard my home phone ring in the kitchen. A quick sprint through the back door to grab the phone and there I stood - a dog clipped to my waist, a grocery bag hanging on each arm and a phone on each ear. As I said hello on the house phone I heard hello come through my cell phone!
When you call yourself it is definitely time to slow down.............
Hope you have time to slow down and play along at Freshly Made Sketches!
