Lesson 648 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.
― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Hurricane, snow storm, soccer playoffs, an admittance to Norwich University (the gymnast), an election, and fresh gingerbread. It’s been a busy last few weeks. Winter is well on it’s way and I’ve already gotten a desperate call from one college student “send more blankets, mom.”

We’re in a transition, you can feel it in the air.

And yet, here we all are, same as we were before. The most important thing? To be there for others when needed – small comforts speak volumes.

This weekend, please remember to look out for the flock, us all.

See you next week.

As always, happy weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.

Lesson 634 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks

Today’s quote is going to be more of a riddle.

When you finally decide to overcome your abject fear and make that pie from scratch that you’ve been talking about for weeks, what is the one thing needed to make the crust that you swore you had, but you couldn’t for the life of you find, which meant that you and your daughter (the one who was locked in the hen house years ago and is still holding that over your head) had to go to a local antique store (because if you’re going to buy one, you might as well buy a good one) in order to get?

Give up?

Here you go.

A genuine hardwood, green handled beauty

Houston, we are now, finally, finally, ready to make that pie.

See you next week.

As always, happy weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.
