Mellow Yellow Monday ~ 9~21~'09...A stitch in time...
I saw this spider in my back yard recently! Look at her pretty bright yellow spots! The webs are always intriguing to me...but this one doesn't show up well in this picture!
...except for that zig-zag line down the middle! Looks like someone has taken a darning needle to that web! :)
Reminded me of this!
A stitch in time saves nine.
You use this proverb to say that it is better to spend a little time to deal with problems or act right now than wait. If you wait until late, things will get worse, and it will take much longer to deal with them.
It is often shortened to "A stitch in time." This proverb expresses a similar idea to that of An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
