Focusing on Life Week 3: Take Time

I haven't had MUCH time to myself all week what with getting ready for my Mardi Gras Ball for Saturday night. So, I'm writing this on Friday and simply showing you what I would be doing if I had the chance to "Take Time", our prompt for this third week of the Focusing on Life photography challenge from Sally at The Studio Sublime.
I'd be diving in to my backlog of blogs to read.

Most of the time, I get to quickly scan the many, many blogs to which I subscribe and sometimes even get to comment. There are times when reading them is too much and I just scroll through the pictures. Ah, to have the time and leisure to sit back and enjoy all those posts. It would be heavenly.
I hope to get to visit some of the other blogs who will be joining in on this challenge at some point. Of course, I'm not sure I ever made it through all the ones on the first week. Sigh. If you're interested in seeing how others are taking their time, head over to Sally's blog for the complete list. I'm hoping to get this post added there at some point, but we'll see how the day goes.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. As busy as you are, it sounds as if you are a perfect candidate for some "down time". I hope you get some soon!

  3. I hope you get the time to sit for even a couple of minutes and go through all the blogs you follow - I know how fun that can be when you finally get the chance. Sometimes it's like reading a great book!! Good luck!! Great photo, btw, too!!

  5. I can totally relate. Sometimes I miss reading for days and feel guilty. Today is ME time so I'm reading and commenting. I am inspired by this so much that I think I will join in....however late it may be.

  14. Reading blogs is an indulgence I so enjoy too and you're right about taking the time to comment and really read. I am working my way through all the posts from yesterday as i was gone for the day again. It takes hours to do it right!

  15. There never seems to be enough time to get everything done, let alone play time. It takes me days to get to all the blogs in this challenge, and then there's the blogs I follow, emails, etc. Sometimes we have to let things go, which, sadly, is usually our 'me time'.

  17. Shel- I'm hoping to eke out a little blog time this evening. . .maybe. Thank you for finding the time to stop by here!

    Cynthia- You are too sweet! Thanks :)

    Annette- I would love it!! I don't think I'd know what to do with myself if I had that kind of time. The ball was very nice. Thank you for your best wishes!

  18. Agreed! I subscribe to likely too many blog feeds. It is like my crack. I love to read what my online friends are up to, what inspires them, and to keep up with the conversation is really something special for me. Thanks for reminding me that what I am doing right now is something just for me! Enjoy the day. Erin
