Redeeming the time!

I’m sitting on our carpet watching a YouTube video on ancient Egypt while also keeping my 2 Jack Russells busy with their favourite toy rope and it occurs to me that we lose so much time to work and travel, that we neglect these simple things. There’s nothing I love more than spending time with my family and my two Jackys. As much as we need to work, I think we ought to slow down every now and then and just take time for ourselves to do something that removes us from the insanity of our everyday lives.

Plant a garden, try a new and interesting recipe. Go for a walk, have a coffee at a shop in the middle of nowhere. Do something that you can one day look back on and only have fond memories.

Watch a horror movie at midnight or binge a series that you’d never think to try. Invite over family and friends and play a board game or even find something outside of work that gives you meaning, you never know it might turn out to be something that you spend the rest of your life doing. Anything is possible. There’s so much we can do and so little time.

As for me, I’m going to play with my pups and spend time with my family.

Thank you for reading this post and hope to write again soon.

  1. Nice writing. My neighbor has 2 Jack Russells. Busy little guys. You mention the many things you might do, but not the one you’re doing in this post, writing a diary or journal entry or personal essay. This type of writing constitutes the basis of the prose part of haibun, a mix of prose and haiku. Basically, the prose is any of the above, true to the experience of the writer. Keep on writing! And thx for visiting my haibun and haiku site. ~Ray Rasmussen https://rays-blog.ca/

    1. Ever since school I’ve wanted to learn more of haikus. They never made sense to me, I think your blog might finally help me understand what school couldn’t. So, really, thank you helping me understand haikus. Thank you as well for encouraging me, I’m researching another article as we speak. Hahahaha. It’s on musical nostalgia. Wish me luck😁🌸

    2. They tend to keep one very busy. Working from home is easy, thank heavens. Our two just sleep and then when Justine-Louise, my one pupper, sees me packing away she demands attention or to atleast sleep in my dressing gown. Hahaha!
