they gang awry

Robert Burns ....He Knew it Best

"But Mousie, thou art no thy lane
In proving foresight may be vain
The best-laid schemes o' mice an’ men
Gang aft agley
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain
For promis'd joy!"

My plans were laid
Foresight I had tried to prove
Promised joy was gleefully expected
And I wound up with grief and pain
Well, not quite so drastic
But that darn flu knocked me for a loop
And caused my plans to be put on hold
I had planned:
* to get back to blogging and fill in the blanks on all the blogs I follow
*to shampoo the carpets
*to finish creating my craft room
*to take walks in the snow with my dog and my camera
*to get back to hockey
*to get caught up with various paperwork, nasty stuff that but it has to be done
*relax while playing Pogo and reading books
and what have I done?
Frittered the days away, thinking I'd do it tomorrow
when tomorrow came, which is no longer tomorrow
I found myself wiped out and in bed on most of my time off
and even during some of my time on
Now it is my time on, but I am taking time off to get at least one blog written
and will catch up on the rest bit by bit.

Editor's note:  Luckily, the flu gang way afore too long!!


  1. Glad you are feeling better and that you are able to upload photos once again.

  2. i like that i have also frittered away a few too many days myself :)

  3. Catching up with the hockey would be nice, I have to settle with my young students on the ice and be careful so I don't fall on them when I struggle and want to send that puck into the goal.
