Another week has come and gone in a blink of my eye. I’m glad it’s Friday, I need some weekend time but I can’t believe how fast the week went by! Of course the weekend will go by even faster. This is December already and it’s almost 2012. Time sure does fly.
I have been giving some thought about how time flies and found some goodies about it to share with you before I enjoy my Friday night.

How Time Flies
Tick-tick-tick the clock moves sixty times and it’s a minute.
A little while and it’s another hour and soon dusk approaches.
Night, then a new day.
Few hours ago now termed yesterday and before you know it the year is gone.
Sweet memories flashing through the mind like it happened a few seconds past.
But lo that was some years back, but surprised how seconds turn minutes, minutes turn into hours, hours turn into days, days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months.
And months turn into years, oh how time flies.

(My,) how time flies.
1. Time has gone by quickly, it is time for me to go. Bill: Look at the clock! Mary: How time flies! I guess you'll be going. Bill: Yes, I have to get up early. John: My watch says it's nearly midnight. How time flies! Jane: Yes, it's late. We really must go.
2. Time passes quickly. (Said especially when talking about how children grow and develop.) "Look at how big Billy is getting," said Uncle Michael. "My, how time flies." Tom: It seems it was just yesterday that I graduated from high school. Now I'm a grandfather. Mary: My, how time flies.
I hope you enjoyed your time spent reading this blog! How time flies!
