I saw this great picture this morning out of the kitchen window
Later a conversation at work today with a colleague who has stopped smoking reminded me of this Chinese proverb:
The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago
The second best time is today.
Finally with the Yarn Harlot being sick and taking to her Chesterfield, and every one else coming down with winteritus (we get so stressed about the Christmas season, afterwards our bodies just go STOP! in whatever why they can), I was reminded of these few lines from Michael Merenda‘s song Quiver:
“[…] you must remember, please for me,
That solitude is medicine
And it’s not a sin to sit and Quiver”
