Success is not the key to happiness

If you love what you are doing,
you will be successful
Herman Cain

A whole new week

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart. To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart. Anger is only one letter short of danger. If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; if he betrays you twice, it is your fault. Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
He who loses money, loses much; he who loses a friend, loses much more; he who loses faith, loses all. Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art. Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't life long enough to make them all yourself. Friends, you and me ... you brought another friend ... and then there were three ... we started our group ... our circle of friends ... and like that circle ... there is no beginning or end ... yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That is why they call it a present.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Happy hugs for a wonderful new week !
The nougat with dried strawberries is my Monday morning treat

Eats and Treats

Pancakes to spice up the School dress up party
Did I tell you that hardly anyone was dressed up?
So glad I was wearing my blue trousers and a white blouse
dressed up with two blue flower corsages,
lots of blue bracelets (these faux plastic ones),
a pair of silly earrings and a pony tail

Miss Vinciane's favorite candy
wrapped up in paper napkins and tied up with a candy rope
Her birthday treat at school, the teachers received the customary chalk candy


Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned
Peter Marshall
