Make hay while the sun shines

Let me explain- unless you have lived in the country like I do, this expression means nothing to you. In short, it means that if you procrastinate and put off cutting the hay, the rain will come along and the hay will be ruined- damp hay rots and will not store though the winter (when it is needed to feed farm animals and is a cheaper and healthier source of food). I remember one year putting off picking the blackcurrants out of sheer laziness. The day I was ready to pick them, I saw a family of blackbirds gorging on the crop and not one berry was left for me.

Never put off what you can do today.
