Perfect Timing…

Yesterday…the plan was…get up early…don’t even take the time to blog…clean the garage…before it got too hot…

Well…we all know about the…best laid plansof mice and men…and…and women bent on garage cleaning…

And…the phone rang…and…the phone rang…and the phone rang…and…then it was too hot…until late afternoon…and…although…I wanted to be finished for the day…Bertha…urged me…do it now…do it now…

How could I refuse…well…I could…but it wouldn’t do any good…so…I did it…it was hot as blazes…but…it wasn’t a bad job at all…and…it only took about an hour…

When all was said and done…there were a few things to be taken to the local thrift shop…so…not wanting to clutter my freshly cleaned space…I loaded them up…and took them straight away…

As I was leaving the parking lot…I looked to the west…and…there it was…one of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve seen in a long time…

Bertha…said it was my gift…my reminder…that there is always a perfect timing…for everything…and…that maybe…just maybe…my plans hadn’t gone astray at all…maybe they were…just right…as they transpired…

Bertha-Sizing Readers Rockin’ Radio…

Okay…I took my advice…I swapped out the printer…I went with the used one…that is the same model…and uses the same ink…as the one I had…decided to give it a try before I asked for a new one…
It works like a charm…I’ve been printing up a storm…
But…here’s the really interesting part…I didn’t realize how much stuff I was putting off…because I didn’t want to hassle with the printer…hmmm…
Bertha says it’s just like life…we all knew she was going to say that…is there anything she doesn’t relate to life…well…nothing that I’ve found so far…okay…we haven’t talked about dryer lint…but…I’m sure she’d find a way to relate it, too…I’ll ask her later and let you know how that works…
Anyway…she says that when I am settling for something less than I want and need…that I’m holding myself back…not reaching my full potential…not fully enjoying life…
What can I say…when she’s right…she’s right…
So today…I enjoyed the ease of doing my job…of printing my documents…and just being carefree…who knew simply switching printers could make such a difference…
Bertha knew…and of course…she loved reminding me…she says that’s what Bertha-Sizing is all about…
In fact…we talked about that during our interview on Reader’s Rockin’ Radio last night with hosts Kim Mutch Emerson and Debra Shiveley Welch…they even rewarded another author who had just been caught in the act of Bertha-Sizing
I hope you’ll have time to listen to the show…it was a ton of fun…as for me…I’m off to work…gotta use that new printer…and search the world…for more ways to Bertha-Size
