"Those kinds of dreams cannot be found brave Luxan. You have to build them. And I promise you, your hands are still strong and there is plenty of time."
DAVID WILKS, Farscape Season 1

"One of the worst weaknesses of many people is that they do not have the perseverance to stick to what they have to do. They are always wanting to change. Whatever you take up, do it with all your might, and stick to it." JULIETTE LOW, 1917 How Girls Can Help Their Country

"Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we make up our minds to walk boldly through them." ORISON SWETT MARDEN

"All I ask is this: Do something. Try something. Speaking out, showing up, writing a letter, a check, a strongly worded e-mail. Pick a cause -- there are few unworthy ones. And nudge yourself past the brink of tacit support to action. Once a month, once a year, or just once."
JOSS WHEDON, from the essay Let's Watch A Girl Get Beaten To Death

"Happiness is not mere pleasure nor the outcome of wealth. It is the result of active work rather than the passive enjoyment of pleasure. Your success depends on your own individual effort in the voyage of life, and the avoidance of certain dangerous Rocks. Self-education, in continuation of what you have learned at school, is necessary. Go forward with confidence."

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by and your kind comment about my peony painting. It was fun to paint.

    So I've had that song by the Presidents of the United States in my head all day "moving to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches. Millions of peaches, peaches for me"

    I finished freezing and making preserves about 2:00 today, then stuck a peach crumble in the oven. We stopped at a peach farm on the way back from the coast and got a box of over ripe fruit for $8 and it was about 20 lbs! MMMM peach pie in December - yay!

    Hey thanx for the pep talk. Ugh unfortunatly the cold is back and stronger now lol. Just my luck hopefully it stops before I start work tomorrow but I don't have my fingers crossed lol. I bet with your workout you lost more than a pound but I am rooting for ya! Is that proper spelling? Haha btw I will be out there in April next year and I can't think of one reason we shouldn't get together! We can even bring the hubbys. I am abandoning my child with my parents for the week (mua ha ha) so we will have plenty of adult time free =-)

    For sure! It really is helpful... It sounds a little silly, but every time I look at it I remember why I'm ACTUALLY doing this... Because I want more for myself. =]
