Daisy Tag

Apparently, we are easily entertained in my home. The kids found that it is amusing to tie a strip of fabric to Daisy's collar and let it trail behind her. After only a few minutes of time, the kitten will find the strip of fabric and chase Daisy around the house, grabbing at the lime green strip of satin. (Don't ask why I ever bought lime green satin.)

Of course, Daisy is to mellow and somewhat oblivious, so when the kitty is able to get his claws into the fabric, she just keeps doing what she was doing...dragging the kitty behind her.

Thanks, Meagen!

Lately my friend, Meagen, and I have been commiserating together about our unemployed status' and sending job links and leads to each other. I was glad when she received a call back for an interview from my lead and I am soooo excited that I received a call to set up an interview with the job lead from Meagen.

It definitely boosts the spirits after so many resumes having gone out without much of a nibble. I don't know if anything will come of it (the job market sure is tough right now), but it will be nice to get out there, again.

A Few Quotes...

From the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. I personally, have never really been excited about fantasy/sci-fi books, however I do find that I enjoy the philosophical side of several of the series I have read recently. Another series I enjoyed was the Incantations of Immortals series by Piers Anthony.

AND of course we all know how much I LOVE quotes, so here are a few quotes I found particularly poignant:

"Charity, if you have the means, is a personal choice, but charity which is expected or compelled is simply a polite word for slavery."

"The sun has already set on the days we made those choices. We must concentrate on what we can do tomorrow; we can't relive yesterday."

"Fate does not always seek our consent."

"Wrong doing must be punished. If not, it will proliferate until anarchy wears the robes of tolerance and understanding."

"Love is a passion for life shared with another person. You fall in love with a person who you think is wonderful. It's your deepest appreciation of the value of that individual, and that individual is a reflection of what you value most in life. Love, for sound reasons, can be one of life's greatest rewards."

"We reap a reward merely in the act of helping others. We never know how, or if, that reward will come back to us. Helping is the reward; none other is needed nor better."
