The Privilege of Hurrying

With the cold and flu season suddenly upon us, the privilege of hurrying and scurrying is on temporary hold. Desperate to move quickly, the symptoms only worsen and you find yourself in one big heap, just like the pile of leaves gathering on the front lawn. Long ago, Tertullian said, “Indeed it is better to postpone, lest either we complete too little by hurrying, or wander too long in completing it.”  

Great advice but who has time to postpone the fall garden chores? But if you must delay, at least get out in the beautiful fall air and grab some pics. Fresh air is a cure for the common cold, isn’t it?

Or the cure could be my last image: a brew of spices, fruits and miscellaneous herbs steaming on the stove. I was simply trying to create the new organic Vicks!

While the attempt to hurry our cold denies the undeniable – rest, can we allow fallen leaves to gather in the plant beds? The garden must be neat as a pin before the first snow flurry so elves may come in handy to help with the fall garden clean-up list.  Not that snow is in the immediate forecast but just in case you need a quick review, here’s a definite must-do list from the trusted Annie archives.

So for those that have the privilege of hurrying, this set of chores should be completed soon! Elves, where are you?
