I Meant To Do My Work Today

I meant to do my work today-
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.

And the wind went sighing over the land
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand-
So what could I do but laugh and go?

I know exactly how you feel!

...though, when we got done playing, I actually did finish up the rest of our taxes. Getting a little bit close to the deadline on that one...

I LOVE THIS! I felt exactly the same way yesterday. The weather was so springy I wanted to get my marbles, jumprope and sidewalk chalk out!

Saturday (yesterday as I type this) that would have been me! And I did :)

But today.. well, like Yarnthrower it's getting close to Tax day. The Feds will pay me back a bit this year, but The Commonwealth of Massachusetts takes more than that bit away.
