A time for everything

“My dear Catherine, I am afraid you are growing quite a fine lady. . . . Your head runs too much upon Bath; but there is a time for
everything — a time for balls and plays, and a time for work. You have had a long run of amusement, and now you must try to be useful.”

More sensible advice from Catherine’s mother
Northanger Abbey, volume 2, chapter 15

Today I am going to try to be useful.  😉
