There's another bit from the Alice story that has long been a piece of my life.
"'Well, in our country,' said Alice, still panting a little, 'you'd generally get to somewhere else -- if you ran very fast for a long time as we've been doing.' 'A slow sort of country!' said the Queen. 'Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you wanted to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!'"
I'm not one to do things in a hurry, nor am I much of a runner. But sometimes the calendar gets over-fill and obligations pile up along with the laundry, and I don't seem to have time to do things I want to do, I'm so caught up in what I need to do. And somehow all of that makes me think of the Red Queen.
This is one of those times. Been out at night more frequently than usual. Been shopping and wrapping and thinking about decorating. Been sewing just a little. But not been blogging. Because I'm hanging out with the Red Queen. I believe she's scheduled to leave this weekend. If not, I'm evicting her!
