Notes to Start a Writer's Week

(Yes, that's right--my week is really starting today, even if it IS Tuesday):

1. Beware the gardening catalogs! You will only spend hours picking out plants that you will then not have enough time to plant.

2. And, if you do plant them, you will not have time enough to give them the time and love they need (unless you get that sprinkler system installed.)

3. And you will feel guilty when they fail to thrive or (gasp!) die.

4. Even though gardening is fun.

5. Even though flowers are beautiful.

6. Even though you love the little yellow and purple crocuses appearing in your front yard.

7. Even though the weather is luring you into a false sense of spring right now.

8. Save your energy for the basics: yard work, weeking, vegetable garden, strawberries, and, of course, writing.

9. Hmm. Does that mean vegetable catalogs are an acceptable waste of--I mean use of--time?

10. I'll get back to you on that one.

:) Cheryl
