Never plan on perfect days

Leaky faucet
If not for taking a short cut through the backyard yesterday, would have never seen this cracked metal faucet. The repair took an hour that interrupted last night’s plans.
Amazon truck driving across front yard
Delivery truck drove across our yard to lessen the walk to the front door.
Glacier postcards
The number of cards and postcards sent out this week is astonishing.

The paperwork of life. 

Having intentional margin in each day allows for unexpected events to be handled without going into crisis-mode.

Worked a 12-hour day on Ground Hog’s Day

self-talk wisdom
We should take serious note to the scripts we tell ourselves.
dreaming big dreams
Jody and i had a prolonged text conversation yesterday. Dreaming big is fun. The impact we can make on our planet is the gift we return to the gift giver of our lives. Note, GNP is Glacier National Park.

Worked a 12-hour day on Ground Hog’s Day, yesterday, a Saturday.

Why?

Because everything fell into place.

Why?

For starters, we had no Family plans. This is okay occasionally. 

It offers spontaneity. It can also serve as a catch-up day, if necessary – catching up on stuff that a busy and flexible schedule didn’t get completed Monday through Friday.

Leave room

GNP
Organized my personal and home life so i could do this bicycle ride to Logan Pass at the Continental Divide before Going-To-The-Sun Road opened for the 2018 season.

Leave room.

Breathing room.

Also known as margin.

Empty space.

On your calendar.

Make fewer promises.

 Play more.

Aim for boredom once in awhile.

Completely Different?

Dream big, plan early

Logan Pass at Dusk
Sometimes the opposite of arriving early – staying late – provides margin. After the parking lot empties, Nature awakens.

 

There is something about breathing room that literally defies logic.

Creating space on a countertop.

Arriving earlier than necessary.

Thriving on less.

Simplicity.

Finding margin in a crazy busy world

voting in Florida
Voted yesterday.

 

Florida pool iPhone app
First swim of the 2016 season on March 15.

 

Another busy day, like all the others.

And so it goes.

Enjoyed the opportunity to ride a bicycle to cast a vote in yesterday’s 2016 Florida primary.

Also enjoyed a 15-minute after-school swim.
