Psychological time versus chronological time.

Dear friends, I´m expecting my guests. While I was getting ready (and not knowing where was the lip gloss I wanted to use), the time fled. The wine was too cold, the rice had to be warmed in the oven (my microwave oven died 2 weeks ago) and I was with slippers. But after some time, things began to get better. The rice was in the oven at the right time, I could open the jar of artichoke bruschetta, the red wine was near the heater and I put on my earrings and my perfume. Now that I´m writing, I will make a pause to put on my amethyst ring. Tania hasn´t seen it yet. Slowly, the tense psychological time is resembling the chronological time and I can see that I have 15 more minutes to do whatever needs to be done. Do you has such problems when you have guests?

I am curious. Who are these guests that you wanted your lip gloss so badly. (lol)

I am full of vanity. My visitors were my daughter and her BF. I was really showing off her him.

Guests are always on time here in Switzerland, I always know exactly how much time I have before they arrive. It is true that when I am planning time flies.

In my country not every guest arrives on time and no one knows at when time they will leave.

I'm not sure but sometimes I have zero patience. Sometimes I can wait half day or all day. Depends on my hormon I guess

In some countries, arriving early/late at a gathering/party/event is considered rude. I'd prefer the latter. It'll give me enough time to make things more perfect. hehe

Ages ago when I did entertain the time just slipped away while I made sure everything was just right and before I knew it the guests were at the door. Enjoy your time with them.

I don't have guests, but I do always manage to get places earlier than I need to. I guess that's not too bad of a thing.

It is much better than being late.
