My e-mails have been piling up lately as I've been busy with other things. Sometimes it is so busy that it doesn't feel like summer and then there are the days that are laid back and it is what summer is all about. Getting together with friends, going to the beach, reading, etc. I spent a couple of hours going through SOME e-mails the other day and saw this from Vicky. I loved it. So simple. So elegant. I had to make it. Of course, I didn't have the right color of textured cardstock so I went with the plain version. I didn't want to get up to get the Melon Mambo ribbon, so I went with the Razzleberry on my desk.

Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
