Quote of the Week

I have no fashion sense whatsoever, but fabulous taste in books. (Melissa Wiley)

I knew my friend from Here in the Bonny Glen was a kindred spirit! Check out her new blog at The Lilting House. And Lissa, be reassured ... I never notice messy floors, as my long suffering husband will testify.

Thanks, Kathryn!

I once read an article by a woman who was just becoming good friends with a new neighbor. The neighbor dropped by unexpectedly one morning, and the writer described standing in her doorway realizing she had a decision to make: was she going to let this new friend in, even though her kitchen was a sticky-floored disaster? She said she made a sudden decision never to let a dirty floor come between her and a friend. She opened wide the door to the new neighbor, and they've been best friends ever since. I love that story. :)

I work on the principle of "love me, love my floor" ;) - though the floor is not as squalid as I deserve, solely because my dear husband cleans it far more regularly than I would.
