A window of opportunity

Today I had great plans of cleaning my house, doing laundry and catching up with budgeting.  But a quick check of the weather forecast made me put aside all those things I can do anytime and head outside to prepare our garden plot and get some seeds in the ground.  This window of opportunity was one I wasn't going to pass up.  Living in the Pacific Northwest, our Spring's are often rainy and this year has been no exception...except for today. One day of sunshine.  Today.  Why would I spend this day indoors doing the same old thing when a sunny day like today might not come again for another week or two?

That's why it's important to be flexible.  When a window of opportunity presents itself, it might not last long so you have to take advantage of it while you can.  Whether it's planting a garden before it's the middle of Summer or having an opportunity to help someone in need or taking the kids to a special activity, don't worry about your usual routine.  It will wait.  Some opportunities won't. 


  1. After the days of down pour, your choice of taking advantage of the sunshine, appears to be even more wise!

    1. Who knows when we'll get another dry day! Now let's hope the seeds don't rot :)
