Time Is A Four Letter Word… ~ Written BY Gabrielle Angel


Time, I seemed to be preoccupied by it. That thought occurred to me the other day when I made the rounds of AA battery replacing in my many clocks. Yes, it is kind of quirky but then so am I. Thankfully, I am not alone…My sweet twin sister Autumn is, too. Quirky can be fun! 🙂 I am not sure when it started exactly, but I kind of started collecting different clocks and watches. For myself as well as other people, wonder what that means?

Something, maybe nothing…I just got to thinking about it when changing the batteries. Four different clocks needed new batteries and I realized I only had two clocks that didn’t take batteries. I also thought about it when talking to Autumn and our Mom earlier today.

Mom was saying how much she loves and wears the angel watch I had gotten for her years ago.She was saying how she just had the battery replaced the other day. That  got me telling the battery changing thing with all my clocks. Then I got on the subject of why did they have to stop making wind up watches? Autumn and I had been given one of those as our first watches as kids. The same with clocks, why do so many of them take batteries? When did the plug in clocks go by the wayside? The alarm clocks still plug in though, don’t they? But whatever happened to the wind up ones?

The truth is I do have quite a few clocks throughout my house. It can be time consuming when changing batteries and also when the daylight saving time changes. It takes me forever to get all those clocks in sync! They are all never really in sync, always a few minutes off they all are. That used to irritate me, it no longer does. My thought was it really didn’t matter, I have other pressing things to concern myself  about. But, I do seem to have a fascination with time. The funniest part of that is I am usually late for things, how embarassing to admit that. Well, I am being honest as always. It was why I picked the title of this blog, a light take on my being on time!  Wouldn’t you think someone with so many clocks and watches would be on time…Think about it. 😉

One of my other memory is Dave and I joking around “about freezing time”. He put a wind up clock we had in the freezer, it cracked us both up and we laughed like crazy over that one. That is until the next day, we discovered the clock in the freezer! We had forgotten to take it out, oh well these things can happen. It was in the very first years of our marriage and we did get sidetracked, I will say no more. I bet nobody who is reading this has ever done such a thing. What are the chances? It says a lot of Dave’s and my sense of humor perhaps.

Back to my clocks, I will admit to having over a couple dozen clocks or maybe more…But some of them are really small. 😉 Like that matters, right? Watches, well about the same amount.

Anyway, time is relevant  and time is of the essence, there’s no time like the present. Just think about how many phrases there are about time, too! Now, that will give you all something to think about for the day! 🙂

Sometimes ~by Autumn Sunshine


Sometimes life does not make sense

The spinning wheels of time

the rhyme

or reason,  and no season

I am lost

at such a cost

we live each day

and often take away

no smiles

it seems we need that happy

snappy

ending

that’s just the message I’m sending

So take  a look around you

You’ll see more than you ever knew

you will begin to understand

that you get what you give

in life

make it count…..
