I came across a quote this morning that I really liked:
“Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows.”
– Michael Landon
I like that quote, don’t you?
Speaking of “do it now,” my bucket list is real simple: Get through the day, and go to Paris. That’s not asking much, right?
This morning as I was cooking up some scrambled eggs, I noticed that I was also cooking the lid of the plastic (!!!) container I use for butter!
Sadness! Quickly I grabbed the lid and moved the pan of eggs, then checked to see if any of the melted plastic had adhered to the pan.
Nope. Thank You God! Yes, that was a prayer of thanksgiving, because, had it melted onto the pan, I’d have been more sad. 😦
The lid of the butter thing was quickly repaired (the hole covered with a piece of shipping tape), and put back in the fridge. I did not say it was well repaired. Just repaired. Anyway …
I also want to share another thought I read this morning from La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin
Noooo I have not taken up drinking wine, but I do like reading the different accounts of his travels, and looking at his photos.
His quote today:
It doesn’t matter how tatty your wings are… If you can fly… FLY!
The word “tatty” makes me think of the word “tattered,” or “damaged.” Check out the page and you’ll see the tattered butterfly that goes with the quote. Funnily enough, there is a French phrase, “Quelle dommage,” which sounds like the word “damage,” and can mean “What a shame!” or “What a pity!” But way down on the list of translations is the phrase, “How damaged!” So, let’s say that it means that… ok? And let’s fly!
Don’t mind me. It’s morning, which means, before noon, which means (speaking of flying) flight of ideas! It means you’ve got to expect a little less. Not only is it morning! Worse, it’s before 7 a.m! So you really need to expect less!
So, let’s fly! We may have tattered wings, as in the photo, but we can fly!
(Looks at the clock). No, really, let’s fly! It’s time for church!
(Flies off, flapping wings …)
