‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

Brief Post For A Busy Day

I kind of borrowed this idea from Life At Willow Manor's sidebar. I don't think she'll mind. It's been a busy day of bill and paperwork catch-up in between urgent trips to the bathroom. (Yuck.) So I give you a brief summary to keep you informed:

EATING: nothing.(due to round two of stomach bug)

DRINKING: dark, dark coffee (and, yes, I know that's stupid of me...)

LISTENING: to my daughter laughing at a 'Golden Girls' rerun.

THINKING: about the people of Kinglake and Whittlesea, Victoria, Australia.

READING: Volume two of Beyond Consequences, Logic and Control by Heather Forbes.

DREADING: taking the dogs out for a walk. (see EATING)

I'll also leave you with two Anastasia quotes of the day:

Concerning her puppy who snuck into her room to eat the cat poop out of the litter box, " Mom, sometimes Matilda makes me SOOOO angry I wish I could squeeze her little head until her eyes pop out and roll away. [LONG PAUSE] But I won't."

Concerning today's (very random) argument of whether children or their parents are bigger germ carriers, "Mom, parents are WAY germier..I mean, they're MARRIED....think of where their hands have been..."


  1. haha that second quote cracked me up!!


  3. ROFLOL! (regarding last quote)

    BTW- have you read:
    The Underground History of American Education by
    John Taylor Gatto?

    You'd love it.:)

  4. I have no pep to give, as I only just arrived here, no idea how, but here I am. Will catch up on more of your posts (have read 3) tomorrow.

    But here's something to ponder on:

    stressed spelled backwards is desserts.
