One by one I packed up my patio chairs, stacking them neatly in their storage area. The table and umbrella stands tall next to them, ready to be emerged at the first sign of spring. I am a little saddened at the sight of my bare porch as I lay in my hammock watching the blue sky form various shapes with the puffy clouds. I tell myself that I will appreciate taking advantage of the good weather to take care of my belongings, as many of times I have found myself trying to do it as the snowflakes fall harshly onto my face and froze my fingers.
Now I have to be honest and admit that there are time when I do procrastinate, sometimes maybe even a little too much. Then I find myself scrambling at the last minute and scolding myself for not being responsible. This year I can relax because I worked hard like the ant. How about you? Have you made plans for the upcoming season, or will you wait until the last minute and then find yourself in a pinch because you weren't prepared?
