Quotes

  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

Yeah for the Outdoor Challenge, right? I keep thinking how nice it is to add a little nature into an otherwise busy, errand filled day!

Michelle

You are right Deb, we wouldnt have stopped if it werent for the challenge, we just had so much to do.  I did hear a few groans when I suggested it, but everyone was psyched as soon as we got on a trail.

Did you see that Lisa of 5 Orange Potatoes is going to continue the challenge, posting once a week?  I think that is a great idea.  I love the challenge, but posting everyday is just too much computer time for me.

Deb

Michelle, I have not seen that on her site! I am so glad! I'll check it out, but I think it is a great idea to keep it up, year round, every day! I will admit that during this move, while the boys have been out everyday, I have not always joined them. I am going to continue to keep it in mind though and I hope I will do it more.

Michelle

Well, give yourself a little break Deb, you are packing up a house!  Im sure youll be out all the time again soon.
