Life's hard

Is it just me or do others get sidetracked regularly?  I have a pile of things on my to-do list and at the end of the day I find half of them un-done because I had to do something that cropped up. Yesterday it was an unexpected jaunt up to my Nan's house to dismantle a chicken pen which is now going to be useful here. Today a goanna has been disturbing the chickens so I have to put down tools every so often and scare it away. Thankfully it can't get into the pen and do any damage there. It is all good though. How boring would life be if it went too smoothly and all of my troubles a trifling. For that I am grateful. I think the real answer would be to make a shorter to-do list.

I could very easily get sidetracked online too. Maybe on the next rainy day I will let myself because there are a number of blogs out there that I really want to spend some more time exploring.

Now back to my jobs.

So many different animals in Australia - I had to look the goanna. A big lizard!

You know, Tracy - I have been thinking lately that the people who are able to graciously let their routines be interrupted for these things which randomly come up - these are the people who really can have a true enjoyment of life. I'm sure you're one of those,

Yeah, I know what you mean about getting side tracked, happens often here, but the list does go down eventually.
