Stars, Quotes and Stickers...

I was reading an article today about Starfish.  Scientists are debating changing the name of these beauties because they're not related to fish at all, but rather belong to the same genus as sea urchins.  Their name will likely become Sea Stars.  And can I just cast my vote for that most excellent choice?  How perfect, a star living in the sea.


I get these daily quotes from GoodReads, a site I subscribe to because I wanted to do the Book Challenge (a task I am sorely failing at this juncture).  I've saved a few to share at some point.  This is that point.

And, stuck in holiday traffic on my way to walk the boys this morning, I had nothing  better to do than read bumper stickers.

So, because I haven't done a blasted thing today except make a big pot of chili, walk the dogs, and read a book, now seems like the right time to post a few tidbits from both sources since I've got zip otherwise:


Each moment is a place you've never been.
                                   --Mark Strand

The past is never where you think you left it.
                                  --Katherine Anne Porter

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
                                  --Ralph Waldo Emerson

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself.  Aloud.
                                 --Coco Chanel

Bumper Stickers:

Support Search and Rescue:  Get Lost!

Don't suffer from insanity.  Enjoy every minute of it!

When you're in hot water.  Try Ice. 
(website for the Jewelry Xchange at the bottom)

Hug a musician.  They never get to dance.
(love this one)

What if the hokey pokey really IS what it's all about?


Hope y'all are enjoying the three-day weekend, whether you're out and about, or staying home.

For myself, I would love to be sitting around a campfire right now, the smell of wood smoke and pine in my nose, anticipating a soft, squishy toasted marshmallow as night falls...
