“Life seems but a quick succession of busy nothings.” Jane Austen




"Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”
Henry David Thoreau

These are hectic, fun days as summer winds down. I love the "busy nothings" of life and motherhood. And if Thoreau is right, success should be right around my corner, or at the very least, 18 piles of dirty laundry.

I completely agree with you whole heartily. There is nothing better than to be busy with your little ones or big ones...
and the business of life (even if it is small business).

Have fun Cathy,:-))

Cathy, I have at least 7 piles of laundry. It will keep me busy and angry. It's my pet peeve, the laundry. But like you, I'm looking forward to the success that it may bring.
Love
Liz
