An Anniversary to Celebrate
Workin' on Her Fitness

Sometimes Monday

. . . looks entirely different.  

But it's still Monday, y'know?  The start of a new week is always tough in that here-we-go-again kind of way.  But it's also an opportunity for a fresh start.  After all, a whole new week lies before us.  

However you feel about Mondays, it's definitely time to  . . . 


On Mondays, I'm going to share some things I've collected over the weekend . . . to start our engines and get the week off to a good start.


A Quote

Each week, as I set up my calendar, I find a quote that seems appropriate for the week ahead.  Here's my quote for this week:

"If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair.  We'd never have a friendship.  We'd never go into business because we'd be cynical.  Well, that's nonsense.  You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down."
---Annie Dillard



A Word

When I read, I keep a dictionary nearby.  Usually I just use an online dictionary, but I often drag out The Real Deal just for nostalgia's sake.  I love learning new words.  Here's one I looked up last week:
