Take an Eraser to your Calendar

I don’t know about your weekends, but it seems this time of year it’s very rare to find a weekend without any events or things on the calendar.   I think it’s time to just use an eraser!

Tell me some of your favorite “free time” activities to do with your family on my Facebook Page.

This past weekend was one of the busiest.  Don’t get me wrong I love to go and do things with my kids, but when it involves large crowds, lots of candy and bounce houses, I think of yelling, too much sugar, and then upset stomachs. 

Maybe there’s something wrong with me, but I tend to turn the opposite direction as everyone else. 

So instead of doing the fall party thing we went on a bike ride in something called “nature”.

I have this thing called the “bike train”.  Here’s how we roll with 3 kids 5 and under and just mom.  We have mom’s bike,  junior seat trailing behind, and then attached the junior seat a double bike trailer for the little ones.  We have a blast.

All together we rolled 12 miles.  The best part was we weren’t in a hurry.  We didn’t have anything else to do or places to go.  We stopped when we saw a park, and even stopped to watch the ducks. 

We just sat there tossing stuff into a creek, feeding the ducks, and teaching baby Zoe how to “quack”.  

Love this thing called Free Time.  I realized instead of waiting for an open spot on the calendar, I have to create it.   I need to remove things that don’t bring us peace, and bring us closer together. 

 

Try this.  Take an eraser to your calendar.   Create some free time.  Share with me what you plan to do with that free time, here or on my Facebook Page.

Dear Amanda,

You said that the later water craze is coconut water is disgusting.
Many people actually like it and if you are from the Islands people usually drink this a lot.

Just like beauty is in the eye of the beholder,it's kind of the same with taste.
Therefore you can't really speak for everyone, i feel that there may be many people that drink coconut water that right now may be offended because you just called what they drink disgusting.

Not being rude just making an observation.
We should be careful even in the smallest details,  kinda like God what matters most to Him are probably, precisely the small details that we overlook everyday.

God Bless U. Smile
