Some days I have trouble getting motivated. Today is such a day. I’ve found in the past, that sometimes it helps to time myself and see how fast I can get a dreaded project done. (You can laugh. I know I’m strange sometimes!) I’m amazed at how little time it takes to actually do something.
I saw an article the other day on “5 Minute Flower Arrangements” (Canadian Living, May 2011).
I chuckled to myself thinking, “5 minutes – really?”
So, in a burst of motivation, I decided to try it out.
I got all my vases/ containers ready.
Grabbed my flower scissors and went to the yard.
I came back with these:
5 minutes had already passed. “Well,” I thought, “maybe they didn’t figure in picking time.”
So, I worked away quickly and through the “Oh, this looks ridiculous!” stage. In the end, this is what is smiling at me from my windowsill:
20 minutes from start to the snap of the final picture.
