I am certain that time is flying by much faster than it used to.....
I too was told the older you get the faster it goes but I am not so sure I believe that anymore as I have had young people telling me that they don't know where the year has gone....these are Uni students whose age is around 18, 19 & 20..... me there must be something else that is causing this if they are saying it as well as us oldies....

I am convinced that society now expects different things form us therefore we are not only required to hold down a job but on top of that we have all the activities that the kids want to be involved in and anything else that we would like to get involved in....added to the normal household chores that sadly don't appear to do themselves......
An then there is all the computing that we need to find the time to do some part of the day.... the time we have managed to achieve all that and finally have the time to sit down and relax it is actually passed our bed time and we need to grap a few hours sleep to get up and do it all over again.....

This sounds a bit like a treadmil that maybe we need to get off.....

Just some thoughts to ponder...

trust you are all having a great day

    Sadly, I have to agree. Time seems to slip through our fingers like sand. And like sand, the harder we try to hold onto it, the faster it slips away. With all our technology and things to make life easier, the one thing they have neglected to produce, is time to use all that stuff.

    I think I read somewhere after that huge earthquake and tusami in the islands around the indian ocean that the earth shifted so slightly, but was enough to change our time.
So perhaps this is so .. I will google it and see .
Check this out it is interesting !.>

    Do you think as we get older our metabolism slows so it seems like time is going faster? But, time does seem to fly by. One day it's Monday and you seem to turn around and it's Friday tomorrow! Life is Good, though! Enjoy every moment.

It is nearly the end of another week and the most scarey of all is that the first month of 2012 is nearly over/ has gone so so fast.....

Had a fairly full day today however it was really pleasant and I enjoyed it and actually got some work done...yay for me....
Got caught up on some stuff at work and tidied up some bits before going on holiday so am pleased....
Have to write a report howvver that will get done and to be honest if it doesn't well it doesn't really matter because it really could wait till my first week back...however part of me wants to get it done and out of the way......

Was a lovely warm day today however it all turned sour around 4.30 when it started to rain and hasn't stopped....hopefully it will fine up tomorrow at least long enough for me to get a walk in....
Have a couple of appointments tomorrow so could be an active day.....

am off to do the church newsletter now for while we are away....then to byes....
Back tomorrow....

    I love the passage of time because there is always another great adventure or opportunity to be happy or to solve a problem or make life better around the corner. I love the seasons as they pass and come and go and come again as it is prove that life is everlasting and goes on, no matter what.

Glad you are getting time off Lynmeinders! I personally would let that ol' report go until you get back to work!

Lol, have fun!

    Time seems to go faster these days ..I can remember my darling mother saying to be just before she passed:
As you get older time goes faster ... there are not enough hours in the day anymore! .She was so right !
Make every day count!! .

Has been fairly overcast and cool today which has been nice however now, at the end of the day, the sun has come out and it has got warm......all good though...

was away from home early this morning to pick up my son and one of their dogs to go to the vet.....was coming home to go for a walk however ended up in town and had breakfast then came home and went for a walk.....
Am really enjoying getting the walks out of the way early in the morning before the sun comes up too warm....
am hoping to continue with this while away on holiday as need to change a routine thats working....and I know what happens....gets to the time I should be going for a walk and out comes the drinks and thats it....we end up with otherts and thats the ewnd of my walk so getting it done in the morning is going to solve that....and keep the exercise going while away.....YES....

My next thing is to get this eating sorted and stop my Ganneting,......The woolley head needs to be pulled in and I need to stop going round and round the same mountain that is just taking me further away from my goal....
2012 is going to be my year.....i need to start putting something into practise to bring that about.....

Thankyou for listening to my ramblings...appreciate it....

    I walk first thing in the morning too. Then anything after that is a bonus! Enjoy the holiday.

    It's definitely a good idea to walk before it gets too hot! Keep up the routine! emoticon

    Hi Lynn!
Love that you are enjoying walking in the mornings..
This is my best time .. it is lovely and cool and not to many people around ...
I am sure this is something that can become a habit.
I love that the endorphins kick in and my metabolism starts ticking and it lasts most of the day!! .

Today was a simply glorious day......although when I went for my walk this morning it was rather chilly although the sun was coming up at 7.30am this morning.....
Walked 5k's because that was all the time I had as I had staff meeting at pleased that I got my walk over with early as I didn't leave church till after 11.30 and was pushing to make a meeting that I had scheduled for 11.30 and had already pushed out till 11.45...and really i still had things that needed sorting when I left the staff meetings.....ugh....
Nevermind....will worry about it all when I get back from holiday.....quite difficult at times running one church and being part of the staff at the parent

My back is not so sore today although certainly not 100%....mentioned it to the DR when I was there and he told me just to keep an eye on it as it may be coming from my hips.....great.....
Hopefully it will improve again over night tonight......
Have another early start in the morning as my son's dog needs to be at the vet between 8 & 9 am so will walk when I get back as I will have to leave home around 7.30am to go pick them up....all good,....

Have a fairly quiet day for the rest of the day tomorrow which is great......

Off now to read some of my book and get dinner....

Today has been a fascinating day...not one that i could have planned at all in anyway shape of

Wasn't very warm again today however it did fine up as the day went on and there were patches of blue sky and sun at times however not sure that it got at all warm today.....
Did a 6k walk although seemed to be behind the 8 ball all day but did get all my bits done except for the house but thats all good have got tomorrow afternoon or wednesday to achieve that.....
Am goimng to try and get up in the morning and do a 5k walk before 8.20am as I have to be at staff meeting by 9am.....not sure ho0w that idea will go as I have a really sore back today and have NO idea why...hopefully it will be better tomnorrow....

Am really hoping that it is much warmer was supposed to be really hot today so thought I may spoend some time in the back yard with a book however weather didnt allow that....maybe tomorrow although it is a fairly full day tomorrow....sun on wednesday would be nice....would like to spend a little time in the sun before we go away.....

Back tomorrow....

    Huzzah, oh how I wish Monday were over and it were Tuesday here in Arizona! :)

You are doing so good with consistency in the walking.

You know, sometimes when my back hurts or I am all stiff and sore I take slow, yogic walks and meditate or think about nothing. It heals body, mind and spirit for me and I count it in my exercise streak.

Here's to glorious February, just around the corner!

    I like to walk early, then I feel set up for the day. Hope you managed it despite the back pain. We're meant to get 22 today so perhaps we'll both be back to summer again! Hope your day goes well.
