My Life

Tonight, the kids watched a Will Ferrell double header. 

First, was 'Stranger than Fiction', which I thought was going to be too serious for them, but they were riveted.  Afterwards, Pumpkin told me it was one of the most amazing movies she ever saw!  High praise!

Next, they watched 'Kicking and Screaming', although they had seen it before, they all agreed it had been a while and it was good and funny!  Again, they were excellent while watching.

I think they exhausted themselves earlier!  After the weather cleared, they took the their rambunctiousness outside, before and after dinner for a while.  Dill and Fuzzy even got in some hoops, so that was nice. 

Hubby took them all to Dairy Queen for ice cream, and brought me back a treat, too.

All in all, in spite of it being a particularly difficult day for me, it was a good day!  I was able to manage the facial nerve pain, and function, although, the kids didn't ask much of me at all.  I played some cards, made some food, got some drinks, that was about it for me today!  LOL

I found this meme a while back, and finally decided to do it, as it was time consuming, and tonight, I had the time.

You won't be surprised with #1!!!

10 quotes that represent your life's philosophy

In Latin, "Carpe Diem, quam minimum credula postero!"  In English, "Seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow!"
-Horace, Roman philosopher/poet (65BC - 8BC)

"There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship."
- Saint Thomas Aquinas (1225 - 1274)

"It is our choices, not our abilities, who make us who we are."           
-
 JK Rowling, through the character of Dumbledore, in the Harry Potter series.

"While there's life, there's hope.
- Cicero (106 BC - 43BC)

"Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends."
- Corinthians 13:7-8.

"A well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
- Leonardo DaVinci  (1452-1519)

"Do every act of your life as if it were your last."
- Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor (121 - 180)

"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
- Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor (121 - 180)

"Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.
- John F. Kennedy 35th U.S. President (1917 - 1963)

"I have measured out my life with coffee spoons."
- TS Eliot (1888 - 1965)

           

And, yes, I even found a quote about coffee by a noteable poet/author/playwright!  LOL 

I think my new personal fave coffee quote is, 'Decaf is the Devil's blend!', but it is an anonymous one, and too playful!

Good ole' TS though, sounds like he knew a thing or two about living by and through the java juice!

Okay, signing off now, hope you all have a great Friday!

be well,
Dawn

Sounds like the kids are on their best behavior and your feeling somewhat better. Love the quotes. I was but then I wasn't surprised you managed to find a quote with a coffee terminology. (Hugs) Indigo

A favorite quote of mine is "Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment" - Runni

I think that SO many people should adopt that!
