Lesson 1128 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks


Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.” Omar Khayyam

Friday has, as per its character, sneaked up on us once again.

It’s been a busy week filled with internet attention for those Mammo-graham cookies (and if you are looking for the recipe, it’s right here), articles written (Gift Books for the Holidays, Garden and Farming Boots, and Parenting when you kid has Lyme disease), and a birthday in the house (favorite birthday gift? a fart-piano – proving that boys will always be boys.)

Next week, I hope to carve out some time to work on my own projects, but you know how it goes, the work that brings in the money is that work that gets done first.

This weekend, Marc and I will be visiting our son at Norwich U, Vermont to watch him play in a rugby game. A little bit concerned because I’ve never seen a rugby game and all I know about the game is that pictures of my son suddenly went from this:

To this:

Yeah, rah, rah rugby (said she, who will always be her son’s mother no matter how old or tough he gets.)

I’ll also finally get to that whole grains cookbook (I won’t review a cookbook without trying at least one recipe from it and I just haven’t had the time.) I need to do this, if only to get that book off my desk.

There are some requests from readers to revisit thrifty food/recipe/cooking management, so I’ll take a look at that and I’ve got a great Living Tiny in a Big House story for you that I’m going to post next week.

Until then, take care.

Oh, and a big shout-out to our friends; Nestor and Tori – both recovering from a horrific car accident while they were visiting on the West Coast. The East Coast sends wishes and prayers of love, healing, and strength to the both of you. One step-at-a-time, my friends, you’ll get there.


 Be safe and see you all next week.
