No kids left at home; I don't do smoothies. So NO to this challenge, DC!
“One time, when I was very little, I climbed a tree and ate these green, sour apples. My stomach swelled and became hard like a drum, it hurt a lot. Mother said that if I'd just waited for the apples to ripen, I wouldn't have become sick. So now, whenever I really want something, I try to remember what she said about the apples.”
― Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
I see a game night in the future!
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.”
― H.P. Lovecraft
Ok! Will do!
“When snow melts, what does it become?'
It becomes water, of course'
Wrong! It becomes spring!”
― Natsuki Takaya
Putting healthy snacks where I can grab them! Trying not to buy the junk!
Daffodils! Lots of them were still out on Saturday! Bet the storm Sunday washed some away.
Ann, can't believe we're both here at the same time. I missed giving you E; but I have a sneaky feeling I'll get it as soon as I post! Day 2 of our pact is over!
“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.”
― Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay
Shame DC wasn't around when my kids were growing up! I'll be sure to do this next time I have to prepare a holiday dinner!
A view of Winterthur from the woods.
“Lady, lady, never start
Conversation toward your heart;
Keep your pretty words serene;
Never murmur what you mean.
Show yourself, by word and look,
Swift and shallow as a brook.
Be as cool and quick to go
As a drop of April snow;
Be as delicate and gay
As a cherry flower in May.
Lady, lady, never speak
Of the tears that burn your cheek-
She will never win him, whose
Words had shown she feared to lose.
Be you wise and never sad,
You will get your lovely lad.
Never serious be, nor true,
And your wish will come to you-
And if that makes you happy, kid,
You'll be the first it ever did.”
― Dorothy Parker
Wii Dance Parties!!!! Fun for all!
Taking a break from Ireland pics.
Today's is a shot from Winterthur Museum & Gardens. It was the former home of Henry F. du Pont. If you are ever in the Brandywine area of Pennsylvania or Delaware it is worth seeing. Along with Longwood Gardens, another du Pont home now open to the public.
This is the home.
“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”
