Oooh. "We're always getting ready to live, but never living." I thought I'd heard most of Churchill, but this is a newby to me. This so sums up my life! I'm going to blog on that one. Thanks for the inspiration!


I love the Mitford series. I lost all of mine last year because of the hurricane, but have read them and reread them. Got my Gran hooked on them and my mother when she was still with us. We would just pass them around, back and forth. I could use a good Mitford book.... so spiritual without trying... I need some peace in my life these days! I see a trip to the bookstore coming. I want to live on Wisteria Lane. I always have, ever since the first book. (not the one on ABC, it would be good for the bodice ripping though) I also love, LOVE the Churchill quote. I have been waiting on purchasing new furniture parts after loosing it all last year... I guess I have been waiting to live as well. Well, (hand on hip, nod of the head) time to get on with the living!!!!! Thanks!!! Good luck on the "diet"... I think we are all struggling with those summer pounds!!!!
