I Found a Quote About a Snake!!

The thing about words is that meaning can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.
Terry Pratchett

Speaking of Snakes...

I have heard that Manitoba is known for it's Garter Snakes, but I really don't want to know anything more!  We have been here a grand total of 2 weeks and I have seen two so far. That is more than enough.
Darling daughter mentioned at breakfast this morning that there are actual dens of snakes that you can view. Don't know where and didn't ask!! That just creeps me out!!
The snake that I saw yesterday, slithered into a little opening under the front steps. Now every time I go up or down them, I'm going to be wondering how many snakes are under there??

I have to agree with this quote. Sometimes you meet someone and you just click!

Okay, I'm going to spend the afternoon looking for those unseen forces. I could use a bit of help!

Something That I Have To Realize Is Okay...

I have always had the impression that I have to be good at everything. I can't make mistakes, I have to know all of the answers. Today, I'm going to try to get my head around the fact that it's OKAY, not to have all of the answers!

A Quote... When a Friend Says The Wrong Thing

The friend who holds your hand but says the wrong thing is made of dearer stuff than the one who stays away.

Barbara Kingsolver

I have never heard of the author, but I have to admit, it gives you something to think about when you find yourself faced with a difficult situation.
