Has anyone noticed how fast the time is passing by these days or is it just me?

Coming home from the farm this morning you would think that I would have been tired but I was full of pep. I harvested a huge garbage bag of basil and this was my second cut,  I even mowed my back lawn while the grass was still wet and started to pull the dead stalks from yet another day lilly flower bed. I really don't know where all that energy was coming from but I sure made good use of it. It probably won't last for long. I made a fresh batch of pesto and made Chicken Pesto Pizza for lunch. Very yummy. Then after lunch I mowed the front lawn and the other side of the road on the water front.

Here I was checking other people's blog a few minutes ago and realized that I hadn't even given a second thought about what I was going to blog about. That's when it hit me how fast the time is going at breakneck speed. We are already three weeks into September and it seems that I haven't event noticed it was here.  I seriously have to buckle down and start hooking to slow down the clock.

As I read the Open Discussions on Rug Hooking Daily posted by Wren this evening, I was sorry to hear that a 78 years old rug hooking lady by the name of  Pat O'Hagan who was abducted from her home in the  small community of Sheffield in Vermont. This is most disturbing.  All I can do is ask for prayers for  her safe return to her family and friends. If you Google her name you can see her photo and also see a video news clip from ABC News.   But the time is at a stand still for those who love and miss her and are searching for her. My prayers and thoughts are with the family and friends who miss her and also with Pat.
